Powder foam hand soap | Dry formulation
I am trying to formulate powder hand soap that you dissolve in water or pour on your hands while washing hands.
My current basic formulation
about 40% sodium coco sulfate
about 40% sorbitol
about 10% powder Cocamidopropyl betaine
some sodium benzoate, gluconlactone, color, perfume etc
The issues are:
1) I would prefer to use something else than powder Cocamidopropyl Betaine to make Sodium Coco Sulfate less irritant. CAPB is expensive and difficult to buy.
Any idea what other substances/surfactants I could use to replace CAPB? Sodium cocoyl isethionate won’t work.
2) This kind of soap is missing some refattining factors. Hands seem kind of dry.
Any idea what I could add/replace? But it would need to be easily dissolved in cold/slightly warm water.
As it is a dry formulation is very difficult to add any refatting agents etc.
Any suggestions would be so helpful and if it workout I would gladly send some money via PayPal as a “thank you” gesture.
