  • essence percentages ?

    Hi everyone,

    I studied a shower gel for 8 different essences.
    I chose 2 essences to compare and did the experiment
    Essence1 was tested 2% and 3% 
    Also essence2 was tested same amount

    Both percentages of the essence1 degraded thickening 

    Does the thickening decrease as the percentage of essence increases?

    It largely depends on what ‘essence’ you’re using, as you’ve identified using Essence 1 and Essence 2. 
    Typically, if there’s a degradation of thickening for x% of your essence, then increasing it to y% (where y > x) is going to exaggerate that degradation.

    That said, you can try it yourself by adding 0.1%, 0.5%, 1%, 5% etc. and see what impact it has.
