  • Milky White Handwash making

    Posted by Riyas on December 26, 2022 at 7:53 am

    I’m making transparent hand washes using SLES, CAPB and CDEA.
    Now I need to make a creamy white handwash. I tried to use Pearlising liquids to make it creamy in color, But, it’s not showing proper white.
    Then I used cmea with Glycol Distearate and got a creamy white color.
    The problem is This two are insoluble in water and need to heat it. I don’t have a heating facility here.
    How can I make creamy white handwash without heating procedure?

    Use a liquid preblend of glycol distearate.

    It will not be as cheap but it is much easier to work with. 

    Titanium dioxide will work too.

      Shouldn’t the titanium dioxide also be heated..?
    If it was only heated there would be no problem..
    In above case the whole system need to be heated.🤷‍♀

    Titanium Dioxide itself won’t need heat, but you’ll still need to add something to suspend it- synthetic or natural polymers could work. There are other synthetic opacifiers as well, but they may not be favorable for cost/ environmental reasons

    @Riyas You could use a polymeric opacifier like Opulyn 301 (very small quantities required, and no need for suspension).
