Posted by on November 13, 2022 at 5:34 pm

Hey everyone, I recently got this shampoo recipe, and I really like how it turned out, but I got it in grams, and I don’t know how to turn it in percentages to make a bigger batch the formula is

Water    424.44
Glycerin       10.22g
Bamboo extract  5.00g
Alpha olefin sulfonate  152.00g
Deflu glucoside and sodium lauryl   51.26g
Almond oil    5.25g
Peg 7 glyceryl cocoate      8.20g
Polyquaternium 10     2.64g
Peg 150 distearate        7.54g
Silk amino acid           7.83g
Optiphen plus              5.05g
Fragrance                    3.74g

this made an 8oz bottle of shampoo

2. Divide each ingredient amount by the total.
3. Multiply each number by 100 to get %

So water = 424.44/683.17 x 100 = 62.13%

I would also mention…that Opti Plus has a pH sensitive component.  I would make sure your formula falls into that range.
