Cleanser using 3.5% glycol distearate not showing pearlizing effect
Hi, need some help on my cleanser. Below are the rough formulation.
Glycol Distearate 3.5%
Acrylates Copolymer 5%
Cocamidopropyl Betaine 1.5%
Sodium Cocoyl N-methyl Taurate 1.1%
My shampoo isn’t showing any pearlized effect but milky white. Is it because there’s not enough surfactants? I’m using solid type of Glycol distearate. I’ve heat it to 80C before adding into the bulk. The viscosity is quite thick. I think it should be no problem with the suspending power.
I need the pearlizing effect something like this:
And another problem, the cleanser become watery after adding NaCl, I thought supposedly NaCl can thicken up the formulation?
