Incompatibility of salicylic acid & ethyl lauroyl arginat HCl
I am trying to make a solution of salicylic acid in salt from+ ethyl lauroyl arginat HCl which is cationic.
Salicylic acid 2%
Caustic soda 0.58%
Ethyl lauroyl arginat HCl 0.2%
WaterI make water, salicylic acid, caustic soda, EDTA & phenoxyethanol until salicylic acid is completely dissolved. Solution is clear.
When i add ethyl lauroyl arginat HCl it becomes cloudy and something very sticky is formed that is very difficult to remove even with dishwashing liquid.
I have used other methods too. Mixing ethyl lauroyl arginat HCl in water first, mixing it in glycerin then in water, using sodium salicylate instead of salicylic acid but in all of them this reaction happens between salicylic acid and ethyl lauroyl arginat HCl.
My question is: are these two ingredients incompatible?
If yes then why?
Or am i doing something wrong?
