I have been struggling to get these polymers to work in my formulas. Very touchy and a very fine line between too much and not enough.

Carbopol® Ultrez 20 Polymer

Seems like it always gels my formulas too much making it useless as a rheology modifier I am hoping to use it for. I am just needing it to slightly gel the formula to give slip and firm the formula just enough without making jello. Carbopoo suggestions on how to weigh, neutralize and disperse these without making these mistakes?

I think your issue is the kind of carbomer you are using. There are low, medium and high viscosity.

If you want to slightly gel your formula a high viscosity carbopol won’t work, no matter how much you use or how you neutralize it the result will be a thick gel. Here you have a reference.

You should try a different thickener, eg Glucamate VLT. It is of course a lot more expensive, but has great long-flow whereas carbomers are generally short-flow. In-house label and box design capability. Thank you, Das and Belassi.
