Does ALS release ammonia if the pH is >7 for 1 or 2 hours during manufacturing?
We use ALS in our Shampoo and also cationic guar gum, HPMC and regular guar gum. These ingredients need to increase the pH of formula for an hour or two above pH 7, around pH 9 in order to hydrate easily because Shampoo is cold process.
Does ammonium lauryl sulfate release ammonia or decompose if it’s pH is higher than 7 for 1 or 2 hours during manufacturing Shampoo?
