First of all i am using a product 28% SLES+ EGDS that i will call pearlizer below. I don't know and the supplier also don't reveal the amount of EGDS in product. (any idea how much it would be?)
Several months ago for first time i made a Shampoo sample with 8% pearlizer and it was a perfect pearl shampoo. I didn't record the method, only the amount of ingredients. But Because of cost i didn't use that in my products.
Recently i wanted to make a pearl shampoo too so again i tried but even with 12% pearlizer and everal samples i couldn't get a good pearl effect.
My formula and procedure of one sample that didn't give good result. The order of addition is the way i have listed them.
Sample size was 500g and after adding each ingredient i mixed them with stick blender.
This same amount of pearlizer did make a pearlized shampoo like big brands the first time i made it several months ago but this time it had almost no effect.
Cationic guar 0.2%
Citric acid 0.25%
CAPB 1.3% AS
Lauryl Glucoside 1.3% AS
SLES 7.6% AS
Xanthan gum 0.2% mixed with 0.3% fragrance and then added
NACL 0.7% enough viscosity
The product temperature during work was room temperature. what is my mistake here that it didn't work and what should i do to make a good pearlized product?
