Both types of emulsions obtained are stable at different temperatures and the pH values of emulsions correspond to the natural pH of the skin, indicating that emulsions can be safely applied to the skin. Results from the optical microscopy analysis show that all emulsions present foam-like appearance. The rheological properties of emulsions were studied and it was proved that all emulsions present a non-Newtonian pseudoplastic behaviour and thixotropic characteristics at two operating temperatures (24 and 33°C). It can be concluded that all emulsions can be used as a natural alternative to a CC-cream or a cream foundation. Further microbiological tests and clinical trials are necessary for the obtained emulsions.
