Adding FO to viscous cleanser

Any tricks to adding a fragrance oil to a clear viscous cleanser without making it cloudy? Every solubolizer I’ve used deflates my gel.

    The ratio of fragrance to solubilizer and amount used is key there, and if you are using a LOT of fragrance therefore a LOT of surfacant-solubilizer, then woe is you for the duration. The most efficient one I found to be is PolySugaMulse D9 from Colonial Chemical. The ethoxylated compounds generally cause "deflation" you experienced, i.e. polysorbate 20, Oleth-10, PEG-40 HCO.
