Liquid soap Thickener

Hello hope you are having an amazing day and enjoying best of your health

I am trying to make a potassium based liquid lye soap and want to keep it sulphate free but Sodium chloride (NACL) isn't working
I have also tried coco betain it gets the product to its desired viscosity but the skin feels oily after wash (because i live in a Hot country) it isnt considered good
Can someone suggest good Thickener


  • Why isn't salt working? HEC can work.
  • There any many choices for you such as these below secondary surfactant: Cocamide DEA, Cocamide Methyl MEA, Decyl Glucoside,... Or thickener like Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose.

    Increase amount of surfactant if degreasing power is not enough.
