      i use salt but i don’t get the desired viscosity i found that when i use salt and CAPB the product becomes jelly but then the foaming ability isn’t really good

    You might be going way too far on your salt. That type of micellar arrangement is in fact gel-like but with low foam capacity. Add salt little by little. After every addition, mix and wait few minutes till it develops some viscosity. If needed, keep on adding, mixing and waiting.
