The preparation of stable, low viscosity skin care formulations containing emollient oils generally requires the use of a polymeric thickener. However, many of these thickeners are unsuitable for use in making formulations that are low enough in viscosity to be sprayed or used to manufacture wet wipes. We have developed several low viscosity skin care formulations that are based on a line of high internal phase emollient emulsions. These formulations make use of certain polymeric thickeners that are particulalry suited for this purpose.
