  • Best surfactant for facial wash gel

    Posted by Cometomy on May 31, 2020 at 6:51 pm

    Im considering to use 3 type of surfactant which is cocamidopropyl butaine 6%, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate 10% and lauryl glucoside (3%).

    is there any other combination of surfactants that works efficiently?

    Nothing is wrong with those but would be hard to thicken. You would probably need either crothix or PEG-150 distearate.

    Carbomers are not electrolyte resistant. CAPB is full of salt. You can use xanthan. It will work but the texture is not going to be pleasant.

    Too little surfactant in my opinion.
