I have been successful in making the gel-based hand sanitizer, the only issue is now the hand sanitizer is bit paleish /mudish. It's not clear 100% transparent
The process and formulation is as follow
1- Alcohol (IPA) 75%
2- Glycerol 1.45%
3- Hydrogen Peroxide 0.13%
4- Water 24%
5- Carbomer 2% of distilled water
6- Triethalamine (TEA)- 2 to 3 drops
1- I put the Carbomer in distilled water and leave it for 12 hours for proper dispersal/hydration, this leaves me with distilled water Gel.
2- Then put IPA and mix with the blender for a few minutes
3- Add TEA, the above mixture converts to Gel
4- Add Hydrogen Peroxide and Glycerol and some lemon essential oil.
5- Blend it again for 5 minutes to complete the process.
The final product pH is approximately 4.4 if I try to increase the pH by adding more TEA, the viscosity of the gel drop
So everything is perfect, except the color is slightly muddy /cloudy.
How can I get a crystal clear gel?
Do u have any idea where I am going wrong? And what needs to be done.
Thanks in Advance
