I am attempting to make my first shampoo and want something that is very gentle and suitable for daily use. I have no plans to market it -- it's just something for myself. Any thoughts on the below as a recipe?
Plantapon 15% (I believe the recommended minimum is 20%, but one blog claims it is a bit drying at this level?)
Symbiosolv Clear Plus 5% (mainly to help solubilize essential oils)
PCA glyceryl oleate 3%
essential oils 1%
citric acid as needed to lower pH
