Gentle hydrating body wash glycerin

ThotaThota Member
I want to make a low irritation body wash for kids with atleast 5% glycerin. I know they washoff, but want to include them. 

My options are CAPB , SCI; I have them both. I have glucosides but hate their afterfeel on skin. Want to avoid them to be on safe side. 

I started with 
10% CAPB 
6% Hostapon SCI 85
5% glyceirn

Foam is nice and small.

I am finding it hard to final my third surf. I planned to add decyl / coco glucoside as third surf, but now want to avoid it. Please help.

  • Maybe you could try Sodium Lauryl Sarcosinate? some say it is the second best to SLS. They are from two totally different sources. Sarcosinate is derived from coconuts. I use it but nothing works as good as SLS. Oh well that is the pay off. Hope this helps.

    May I ask what do you usually use to thicken Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate?
  • Xanthan Gum

    Xanthan Gum
    If I use Xanthan gum , should I use any special preservative to inhibit microbial growth ?

  • Try Dehyton G, sodium cocoamphoacetate, for your third surfactant. Makes nice dense small-bubble foam. I suggest trying it at 7.5%

    Hello madam,
    I am making a Alum based body deodorant, Contents of the Formula being DM Water, Potassium Alum, Camphor, Glycerin and fragrance. I want the solution to stick to the skin rather then running, so i am planning to add Xanthan Gum.

    My question is :
    As the Components ALUM and CAMPHOR are both Anti Microbial, Shall i use any preservative in my product?
    Will Xanthan Gum, if added will need any particular preservative?

    Do you feel if some thing is missing and i shall take care of?

    Please..
