    Is there a ratio of isethionates to betaine that works best for salt thickening? Using SCMI in particular with betaine and also some decyl glucoside.

    Never had much success salt thickening with SCMI and especially when the glucosides are in there too. Best to adjust the solids ratio as close as 1:1:1 as possible, with the glucoside being shorter if anything. Easiest means is to use acrylates copolymer synergist like Synthalen W600. Then you can have more freedom with the surfactants.
