Does something like coconut oil or vitamin E oil sound crazy? Of course, I might have to pre-dissolve the MAP in water.

MAP is compatible with coconut oil or vitamin E. However, MAP is water soluble, so it won't mix well with oil w/o emulsifier.

I'm having trouble finding the right emulsifier/thickener for me, especially one that isn't sticky or drying. I've been browsing bulkactives.com and I have my eye on sclerotium gum. Do you think it's worth trying?

Might work but it is hard to assess w/o testing as it is not a pure substance, apparently.

Consider just finding a base cream you like that already has an emulsifier and mixing your MAP into it.
