    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to share an experience I recently had while formulating a surgras cleansing gel. I used the following ingredients: Aqua (40%) Jordapon SCI (6%) Glycerine (10%) Polyquaternium 10 (0.1%) Arlypon TT( 2%) Cocoglucoside (8%) PEG40 (2%) PEG7 Glyceryl cocoate (2%) Citric acid (0.05%) LAMESOFT® PO 65 (0.1%), Brown Sugar (3%): sugar is used to color the product;

    Initially, the gel was perfectly transparent. However, after 2 to 3 days, I noticed that the product started to lose its transparency. I’m curious if anyone else has encountered this issue and if you have any suggestions on how to maintain the gel’s transparency over a longer period.

    Additionally, I would appreciate any advice on how to make the product more moisturizing.

    Thank you so much

    perhaps it needs a preservative.

    It could also be your SCI. It is usually recommended for opaque formulations.

    SLMI (Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate) is recommended for clear formulations.

    Agree about needing a preservative.
