Body Wash - Sticky Afterfeel
I am formulating a sulfate-free body wash and have observed a tacky after feel upon dry down, which eventually disappears.
I removed each of the following materials one at a time to see if they are causing the tack : Solagum AX, Keltrol CG-SFT, and ACTISOFT C-17. After experimenting, I observed that the base still had a tacky dry down.
I realized that the surfactants alone left a tacky skinfeel after washing. I have one version containing a Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate blend and a Alpha Olephin Sulfonate blend. They are in their respective formulas at 50%. I made a 20% surfactant solution and can still feel the tack.
Can anyone please advise?
