Best surfactant for facial wash gel

Im considering to use 3 type of surfactant which is cocamidopropyl butaine 6%, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate 10% and lauryl glucoside (3%).

is there any other combination of surfactants that works efficiently?

  • Nothing is wrong with those but would be hard to thicken. You would probably need either crothix or PEG-150 distearate.

    so thicken i put xanthan gum and carbomer? is this okay?

  • Carbomers are not electrolyte resistant. CAPB is full of salt. You can use xanthan. It will work but the texture is not going to be pleasant.
