    Try without Cocamide DEA
    it can leave a sticky afterfeel.

    Definitely get rid of PEG-400, it has no use in handwash.
    What's PG? Propylene glycol? If so, get rid of that too.

    Consider adding some cocamidopropyl betaine for mildness and too reduce the salt amount needed to thicken it.

    Too much perfume & pearling agent
    1% DEA IS SUFFICIENT
    Reduce the PEG 400

    @Quimico thanks for ur reply, also try as u say,    but  i actually want non slippery dry effect during washing hand like when we use bar soap it fully washout from hand  and give us dry effect in hand.    what should i add in handwash  formulation for non slippery dry effect in hand .
  • Your formula is fine, what is not fine is the expectation. If they want the drying alkaline soap effect, you should make KOH liquid soap. The product made with synthetic detergents will not feel like soap, and this is actually great.

    * Use a mixture of SLS : SLES 1:3 ; 
    * Use CAPB 
    * Deduct  DEA and examine pearl mix
    * Dissolve your perfume with Alcohol (EA or MA )
    * Use RH40 (Hydrogenated castor oil instead of peg 400 if needed ) 
    * use less than .5% glycerine as moisturiser ) . 
    Hope this will solve your problem .

    What's the purpose, if any, of using PEG-400?
    Is that actually Polyethylene glycol 400, or some other PEG derivative?

    PEG 400 is also called PEG 8 , it is used as a solubilizer or stabilizer . I use it in shower gel . It also act as a thickner . Here you can get more details .
