Problems with a Mild Shampoo
I have recently begun working on my very first shampoo. I intend to make a mild shampoo that could be used daily.
During my time working on this formula, I have encountered two main problems:
1. The shampoo is not foaming as much as desired.
2. There is not enough slip to the product.
Here is the formula:
Water - 62.370%
Cocamidopropyl Betaine (30%) - 23.4% (7% ASM)
Decyl Glucoside (51%) - 7.9% (4% ASM)
Polyquaternium 7 - 1%
Panthenol - 1%
Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6 - 2.5%
Citric Acid - 0.13%
Euxyl PE 9010 - 1%
Fragrance - 0.7%
Is there any reason for which the shampoo is not foaming very well? Could the slip be enhanced in some way, shape or form?
Also, I am still quite inexperienced when it comes to making shampoos and I am not 100% sure that Cocamidopropyl betaine can be used as a primary surfactant and would like to confirm that it can be used in such a way.
