Mixing glyceryl oleate with APG and then to shampoo formula doesn't reduce the viscosity.

Is there any way to add glyceryl oleate in Shampoo that doesn't decrease the viscosity without mixing itait first with APG?

    Yes indeed: just add it directly to the shampoo after all the surfactants are in, preferably above 45C. There is a limit to how much glyceryl oleate your formula will absorb before viscosity crashes however so go low and go slow.
  • Glyceryl Oleate increase viscosity lamesoft PO65
  • @chemicalmatt ;
    I did add it this way when with %9 surfactant. It didn't work but when increased the surfactant to %15 it worked. 
    Appreciate it
  • @AndrewSeel thanks 
    But i wanted to use glyceryl oleate alone as it is %100 active and less expensive than po65 mix
