I tried to increase viscosity for my floor detergent by carbomer or/and CMC to look more thickness, but when I used them, my solution look less viscosity. I don't know why.
Please help me, my fomular follow below:
+ 80 gram LABS,
+ 20 g SLES
+ 0.2 g CDEA
+ 2 g Carbomer (0.2 % w/w)
+ or/and 15 g CMC (1.5%)
+ 20 ml Na2SO4 (saturated solution)
+ add water to 1 kg.
Carbomer and CMC, I dispersed each of them into water before added to detergent solution. both carbomer/ CMC and detergent solution are high viscosity, but when i add carbomer into dertergent, they become low viscosity.
Please, tell me what's wrong with my experiment?
thanks all and have a nice day!!!
