help with dishwash formulation

my ingredient for dishwash are:
Water                                80.000 KG
Citric Acid                         0.450 KG
Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulphonic Acid 90% 4.500 KG
Caustic 50 %                     1.875 KG
SLES 28 %                         3.300 KG
Fragrance Lemon (Oil)    0.120 KG
Solution of HPMC -0.600 KG + Hot Water -6.000 KG
Solution of Nacl -1.600 KG + Water -7.000 KG
Yellow Colour 10 %           0.050 KG
Total                                 105.495 KG

and my procedure for making also is in this sequence
Predilute Fragrance (oil) with SLES 28%

My problems are:
1. The end product is not crystal clear
2. How to make it super thick (in same price)
3. any other or best way to emulsify fragrance
or any other improvement .. 
and Sorry for my english
Thanking you

  • Citric acid and caustic soda?
    LABS and SLES?
    HPMC and NaCl?
    No preservative other than high pH?
    No amphoteric hydrotrope?
    You got problems there, my friend.
  • 1 Neutralized LABSA always seems to have a faint yellow tint. So it can't be crystal clear. You can use a SLS + SLES shampoo like formula, if you want it to be clear (and milder on the skin).

    2 To thicken it you
    2.1 can add more LABSA + NaOH
    2.2 more SLES
    2.3 conduct a salt curve analysis to make sure you ain't adding more salt than needed, which makes it thinner.
    2.4 add an alkanolamide

    3.1 Buy a ready made, water soluble fragrance
    3.2 use PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil and/or a polysorbate to solubilize fragrance

    4 add a preservative, as @chemicalmatt just mentioned.
  • Super thick in same price plus clarity, not a good prospect.
  • Citric acid and caustic soda?
    LABS and SLES?
    HPMC and NaCl?
    No preservative other than high pH?
    No amphoteric hydrotrope?

    @chemicalmatt ;
    1. Citric acid is for " https://www.thespruce.com/citric-acid-safety-cleaning-uses-1707021 " and caustic soda is for making LABSA neutral ( or any suggestion ) .

    2. LABSA is my primary surfactant and I am using SLES for emulsify the fragrance ( is it ok ? or any other suggestion for SLES  ? ).

    3. ( we tried CMC, HEC, MHEC, Carbopol 940 ) HPMC is best compatible with LABSA and nacl for cheap thickener ( also we conduct a salt curve analysis ) , and we know with salt, form decrease. So, alternate for nacl which compatible with HPMC ?

    4. For preservative i am using now Benzalkonium chloride and my product have ph 7  ( BKC is it ok ? or any other suggestion for BKC )

    5. given order of amphoteric hydrotrope will try this also thanks.

    and sorry for my english 

  • @amittal if you Use Benzalkonium Cloride, it may react with Anionics and precipitate..not Compatible I guess
  • @Chirag I tried.and you are right... So i am using nonionic (alphox 200) with bkc . 
  • the HPMC giving sticky feeling how to remove it ?
  • @Gunther
    with higher viscosity the formulation become cloudy
