Hard water and conditioner
Hello experts and mentors,I am in a bit of a fix re my hair conditioner. It is a very simple and poor formula with a non-ionic base of fatty alcohols and few oils. The active as usual is Cetrimonium chloride (using 30% aqueous solution) and I have around 1.5% active in my formula. The issue is that the efficacy is greatly tapering off in hard water and given the set of conditions I have right now I can tweak this formula only to make it work. I was thinking to add a chelate so that I have a little defense against the hardness and my conditioner can have better efficacy.Appreciate comments and opinions.
