Rosemary Mint Gel Shampoo with Botanical Complex HC

This fresh, bright, revitalizing shampoo features two gentle, cleansing surfactants - Foaming Oats Surfactant and DLS Mild. Our Botanical Complex HC contains extracts of Rosemary, Lavender, Rose, Nettle, and Lemon Grass. These botanicals are known to stimulate the scalp and impart glossiness to hair. The aromatherapy benefits are an added plus!

Tip: Fragrance Oils and Essential Oils will have an effect on surfactant based systems. To minimize any negative effects, essential oils should be added carefully to a small portion of the shampoo or body wash before adding to the whole batch. It sometimes helps to mix the essential oil with 1-3% solubilizer such as we have done with AquaEm. Other solubilizers/refatting ingredients that can be used to blend essential oils into shampoo are: Raspberry Dimethicone WS or Olivoil PEG 7 Esters or Shea Butter WS.
