  • Iselux Ultra Mild: Has anyone tried this as a “standalone” surfactant?

    Posted by suswang8 on February 9, 2023 at 2:08 pm

    I was thinking about buying some and attempting to use it as my “sole” surfactant. Has anyone attempted that previously, and if so, what were your results? In recipes elsewhere in this forum, I can see one person used it alongside at least two other individual surfactants, but I am not sure if anyone has used Ultra Mild on its own. I would like to create a shampoo that is very gentle and good for daily use. My alternative would be to purchase three separate/individual surfactants and play around with them to create a more custom blend, but I would prefer to do that only if there are considerable drawbacks to using this branded product.

    Thank you.

    Yes, it works just fine.

    My opinion only here: get the 3 core surfactants and leave out the 2 redundant ones. The taurate and coco-glucoside are redundant. Iselux LQ-CLR, CAPB, lauryl glucoside are all you’ll need. Use at 1:1:1 ratio solid-state for good viscosity build sulfate-free.

    Ultra mild is a nice blend, but I didn’t like it for use in shampoo, but I only wash my hair a couple of times a week.
