Playing around with textures!

I think this could make either a great leave-on exfoliating acid gel, or perhaps a jelly-like cleanser?

By changing the kind of ion used to set the gel you can get different textures. Here I used a divalent ion, which will make this gel heat stable!

The gels formed are pH stable (yay acidity), and I think with high enough concentration could be used to create surfactant/emulsifier free emulsions!
