  • Hand wash formulation

    Posted by Asad_Nazir on April 5, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    My hand wash formulation is
    SLES =8%
    (CAPB )Coco amido Betaine =3%
    Coconut di-ethanol-amide (KD)=0.5%
    Glycerin= 0.5%
    Salt about 4%
    But after using it hands become so dry… How to make it skin friendly.

    And my second question is i need shower gel formulation.
    Some body help plz.

    Maybe you can substitute part of your surfactants with a superfatting agent, like LamesoftPO65, for instance…

    Is SLES and CAPB 8% and 3% active surfactant or actual product?

    What is pH?

    @Asad_Nazir Either increase your CAPB and Cocamide DEA, or add a cationic polymer (like PQ-7 or Guar HPTC)….or both, if you have enough budget.
