Expensive Shampoo and Conditioner vs.

Hi to all!

i just want to comment about the expensive Hair Shampoo and Conditioner I bought from Aesop and the Shampoo and Conditioner I made from the formula given by sir perry and others in this forum are almost the same in quality. The only difference is in texture. 
What are your thoughts friends?

  • Panthenol and extracts are waste.
  • Panthenol and extracts are waste but its there in Aesop’s ingredients! 
  • I was also trying to make gentle shampoo with APG but it was not gentle and not effective. As @Perry suggested i used SLES, CAPB and polyquaternium 10. Now i am selling it and it is the mildest Shampoo available where i live. Thanks Perry. 

    At What ratio AOS/CAPB are you using and can it be thickened with sodium chloride? 
  • ratio is 2:1. i use crothix to thicken. have’nt tried
    sodium chloride. 
  • AbdullahAbdullah Member
    I use 6:1

    What is AOS ?
  • @1Armand2 ; AOS is short for Alpha Olefin Sulfonate, which is another way to refer to Sodium Olefin Sulfonate.

    @Abdullah, could you please share that formula? I struggle with producing a basic mild shampoo for my own use.
  • Mel55Mel55 Member
    @Abdullah, sorry just to clarify, not asking for the whole formula, but I am interested in the percentage of SLeS you use as I can't seem to lower it enough in my clarifying shampoo to achieve viscosity with mildness.

    Current formula is:
    10 SLeS
    5 CAPB
    83.5 H2O
    0.5 Liquid germall plus
    Na++ q.s.

    So I just need to add 0.5 PQ10?

    Thanks,
    Mel.
  • It was 6 part anionic,1part amphoteric,1part non-ionic surfactant
  • Thank you Abdullah!
