This gentle and high foaming shower gel is good for all skin types. Plantapon, DLS Mild, and SMC Taurate provide good cleansing and foaming without stripping natural oils from skin. Used at a low percentage, GuarSilk provides just enough conditioning and adds viscosity to this formula. AquaEm helps to solubilize essential and fragrance oils, improves wet-combing and adds shine to hair. PEG 150 Distearate adds viscosity.

Add GuarSilk to room temperature distilled water and blend/mix well. Hydrate for at least 10 minutes stirring periodically. While gently stirring, heat Plantapon (surfactant) with BBC (surfactant), SMC Taurate (surfactant) and PEG 150 Distearate until melted (approximately 175F). When GuarSilk is completely hydrated (about 15-20 minutes), combine with Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein and dl panthenol. Heat to around 170F. Slowly add to Part A while stirring. Cool down while stirring. Combine AquaEm and Essential Oils. Add a small amount of finished shampoo to AquaEm/Essential Oil mixture. Then add back to finished shampoo with gentle mixing. Add Liquid Germall Plus at 120F or less.

*Fragrance Oils and Essential Oils can have a dramatic effect on surfactant based systems. Small percentages are recommended (1% or less) They should be added carefully to a small portion of the shampoo or body wash before adding to the whole batch. AquaEm and CocoEm WS are superb solubilizers in addition to their excellent emolliency.
