    Hello everyone

    i’m trying to make a cleanser for babies feeding bottles and teats .

    the main list of ingredients i have on my mind are as follows

    Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate (30% actives) 10%

    cocamidopropyl betaine 4%

    cocamide DEA 2%

    sodium benzoate with potassium sorbate as preservatives with total 0.2%

    citric acid to adjust the PH

    is it enough for odour neutralization ? is this surfactant system enough for cleaning?

    please let me know if provided enough information.

    thanks in advance

    That is a poor preservative system and a higher risk population is exposed. What is pH and packaging?

      Thanks for thenrwply PhilGeis πŸ™

      The PH is neutral around 7.

      Do you have any suggestions about increasing the effectiveness of the perservative system (i assume “and please correct me if I’m wrong” that this combination is optimal around PH 5 to persevere the product effectively).

      But i want to stay away from MCIT/CMIT for labelling and marketing reasons.

        Agree - MIT/CMIT prob not appropriate. Can you describe packaging, process and anticipated consumer use?

        the packaging is PET plastic bottle with a Pump cap, and the intended use is to remove milk residues, odour while providing good foaming for “aesthetics ” and giving the sense of “cleaning” too.

        the claims is to be Paraben free ,fragrance and colorants free and sulfate free.

      Appreciate your response sagestudent. I hope this thread would be helpful for you too.

      I have read that zinc ricinoleate is pretty good in this regard but i would wait for someone with more knowledge and experience to say his word πŸ˜€

    To your questions - cleaning what material and neutralization/eliminating what odor?

    • Ahassan22

      The material is plastic bottles.

      The odour would come from any milk residues on the sides of the bottle.

    Will liquid germall plus at 0.5% be an effective perservative without have to worry about “marketing.


    Would Really appreciate your inputs .

    How is this product any better than just washing with dishwashing liquid? Do you have any way to test that it can remove milk residues?
