Separation in our cationic guar shampoos
Merry Christmas! I hope you guys had a good one.
i just needed some advice here. So I formulated and manufactured cationic guar gum. The cationic guar we manufactured when used in shampoo causes separation such that white pasty liquid floats up while transparent phase settles at the bottom. I am attaching picture for reference. Can you guys help me what could be the reason? While i am not a professional or remotely experienced in cosmetics industry i believe it could be due to salt content. The cationic etherifying agent we use needs to be activated and upon activation it produces salt (1:1 salt:cationic agent). Though we filter out salt there is a good amount of salt that can be dissolved in the water phase. The industries we provided our samples to who tested it against Ashland’s and Jaguar’s cationic guar gum used our cationic guar gum instead of Ashland’s and Jaguar cationic guar gum in the same formulation. Though the company wouldn’t disclose it’s formulation for obvious reasons.
looking forward towards your kind comments
