    I mix all the ingredients below but cannot mix. Is my step wrong because it mixes all at once?
    the composition is like this:
    Water: 65%
    Ceteareth 25: 18%
    PG. : 2%
    PVP k-90. : 2%
    PEG 40.: 1%
    polysorbate 20: 2%
    Simethicone: 0.5%
    fragrance: 3%
    VG: 3%
    DMDM: 0.3%
    PEG 7.: 3%

    Help me please.
    thanks

    @ferrysetiawan about your formula i can see that the % of perfume 3 is too high so i sugguest to decrease it to 0,5 % , then you will not need to use tow solublizers you just need to use one polysorbate 20 or peg 40 at % equal at 2. the % of pvp should be higher for better fixation, for ceteareth 25 may you need to increase the % for better viscosity.
