    hi everyone
      i was thinking trying a soap bar and make it as a line then i have discussed with a fried who already have a glycerin soap in the market and told me that my idea wont be succeeded as the bar would be expensive and suggested me to make a body wash and he would sell it to the customers.
    the problem is, all the ingredients i already get was natural oils as i wanted to make a natural product and i made a liquid soap at home  but it was useless due to expanses and it wont be into the market,
    so how to get a synthetic formulation for a body wash ???
    and is it applicable to add some oils but still within the low cost as i want to be different in the market  ?????
    or what do you think guys i have no experience in this and don’t know what to do

    @amalgbr - You make the formula in a lab and see whether it meets your standards.
