  • Help! Wrong Inci What Can I Do - Baby Shampoo

    Hey Guys,

    Hope everyone is well. I recently ordered Suga®Nate 160NC
    to create a simple Baby Shampoo based on Colonials Formula 1003. Now i realize
    their formula had an error in the inci name and so the correct product
    is Suga®Det Mild. I now have a bucket of Suga®Nate 160NC and would like to know if I can use it as a stand alone surfactant like Suga Det Mild or would i need to add other sufactants? Thanks for your help.

    This is the corrected formula. Can i replace Suga®Det Mild with Suga®Nate 160NC?

    1 Water qs to 100.00
    2 Suga®Det Mild 34.00
    3 Fragrance Blueberry 0.05
    4 Potassium Sorbate Microcare ® SB 1 1.00

    Also, what other surfactant could i mix it with that would still be gentle enough?

      You could add Cola®Teric CBS (Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine). It is already a component of the Suga®Det Mild blend, so it would be very fitting. Another addition could be Suga®Det C (Coco-Glucoside), so you would have an anionic, amphoteric, and nonionic surfactant in your formula. It’s used in baby shampoos by Aveeno, Johnson’s, Pipette, and others.

    The issue you are going to have with SugaNate 160 if you use it solo is that it really does not create much foam relative to SugaDet Mild. @camel gave you some good advice on other surfactants that you can add to SugaNate 160 to create a gentle blend.
