Default Emulsifier Lotionpro 165

I'm looking to make a thin facial lotion. I've read that lotionpro 165 is used for thin lotions. After finding a lotion with it, Neutronena Oil-Free Moisture - Sensitive Skin, it felt waxy on the face. My question, is there any ingredient that will get rid of the waxy feel from emulsifiers like lotionpro 165 or even e-wax?

add dimethicone at 2% and lower your lotion thickener to 1 %. If you are using stearic acid there will be waxy feeling. No butters when you want light lotions. I love working with lOtion pro 165, it is my late favorite.

Thank you. If I have my thickener, I'll use cetyl alcohol instead of stearic acid, at 1%, what percent should I use lotionpro 165 at?

Lotion pro can emulsify as well as Bmts-50 if I used 12 g of oil and 1 g of cetyl, I would use LP165 at 3.5 % of oils , even 3% should work. I always lower emulsifier risking the lotion fail but Emulsimulse which suppose to work at 8 % of oils, work for me at 6.5% of oils) You do not have cetyl, use babassu oil as thickener but just a bit
