    <div>Hi All,

    I am trying a shampoo formula that uses Decyl Glucoside at 15%, Cocamidpropyl Betaine at 25% and Sodium Babassuamphoacetate/Vamasoft Babbasu at 10%.

    1. Can I remove the Vamasoft and add more Water, Decyl or Coca Betaine?

    2. Which do you recommend?

    May you need cationic surfactant and yes you can use only CAPB and glycoside.
