    I made this shampoo, it performs well but it kind of breaks. It has oil drops on top and it does not look great after 24h

    Phase A:
    Disodium Cocoyl glutamate: 24%
    Decyl glucoside: 10%
    Coco glucoside and glyceril oleate: 10%

    Phase B:
    Panthenol: 2%
    Dermofeel: 0,1%
    Powder extracts: 0,22%

    Phase C
    Glycerin: 4%
    Xanthan gum: 1%

    Phase D:
    ethylhexylglycerin and phenoxyethanol: 1%
    Essential oils: 0,6%

    I mix Phase A, I mix Phase B and add over Phase A(cold process)
    Then i mix Phase C and put it in both the mixed phases and leave it 10 min to form

    Then i add Phase D and adjust PH with lactic acid at around 5-5.5

    What would be the solution? Should i decrease the essential oils? Should i put them in Phase A? Should i modify Phase A percentages?

    Thank you so much!

    It is too much c glucoside and glyceryl oleate. 
    Use 1 or 2% of it.

    Are you sure it performs well?
