Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate (SLMI) formulation help
Does anyone have any experience creating sulfate-free facial cleansers with Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate (SLMI)? I have limited knowledge with formulating bath products, my specialties are cremes/lotions.
I originally wanted to combine sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (primary) and Cocamidopropyl Betaine (co-surfactant) as my surfactant system but it seems like this SLMI is the latest surfactant to use when trying to formulate mild, sulfate-free, clear, bath products.
Some of the questions I have are:
Best co-surfactant(s) to pair SLMI with for a rich luxurious feel and great foaming?
Best glycols, thickeners, polymers, emollients to use with SLMI?
Best combo to ensure stable emulsion?
If anyone has experience using SLMI any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
