Glycol Distearate in Shampoo as emulsifier

Greetings,
                  I want to use Glycol Distearate in my shampoo as an emulsifying agent concentration 0.5. Cab please someone tell me how should i use it, i mean should i add it directly in the solution or should i mix it with something else before add it to the solution. 
                                                                                                      Thanks

    Glycol distearate is not an emulsifier but a pearlising agent.
  • please suggest something that could be used as emulsifier

    Your make a shampoo, right?
    Shampoo is a quite concentrated solution of emulsifiers. Why do you want to add another one? Or are you looking for a shampoo formulation recommendation (in which case you should rename your post)?

    i think glycol distearate is a foam depressant. i noticed that when i used it in my shampoo formula and also noticed that other brands that use it in shampoos have low foaming ability.

    @enam yes glycol distearate can reduce the foaming effect so you need to use it at the minimum level to pearling effect. 
  • You can use euperlan from BASF for pearling effect
