Baby Shampoo

Hi guys

I am making a sulphate-free baby shampoo . I am using the following surfactants but am not sure of their safety profile

sodium lauroyl sarcosinate
Quaternium 26
coco glucoside

I am adding lemon and grapefruit extracts (0.25%) but the moment I add these my shampoo becomes a bit turbid, I need for it to be clear... What am I doing wrong ? 

Please anyone kindly assist

    The extracts are polar or nonpolar?

    Are you using liquid extracts?  If so what base are they in?

    You can find information about your surfactants at the Cosmetics Ingredients Review website.

  • Thank you good people :-), I was trying to incorporate essential oils into a clear shampoo. I used polysorbate 20 to solubilise my oils and am happy with the results
