- In Part A, combine SCI Noodle, SMC Taurate, DLS Mild, EmBlend CA 20 with one half distilled water portion. Heat slowly on a hotplate or stovetop while stirring constantly. Once the SCI Pearl and EmBlend CA20 have melted, remove from the heat source and add the remainder of the water portion. Continue to stir gently until temperature is 100F or less.
- In Part B, combine Raspberry Dimethicone WS (solubilizer and refatting agent) with Lavender Essential Oil, add to the surfactant mixture (in Part A) with gentle stirring. Add Optiphen (preservative) to the mixture with gentle stirring.
- In Part C, add Glucamate LT (thickener) to combined Parts A and B with gentle stirring (whisk and nylon spatula are useful). Pour into bottles with dispensing closures. The formula will thicken and become more opaque/pearly within 24 hours. The finished pH of this formula is 6.0.
