Gentle Cleanse Daily Shampoo

Mild, naturally derived and sulfate-free, daily-use shampoo. This gentle-cleansing shampoo is great for dry to normal hair types or people with sensitive scalps; it will leave your scalp feeling lightly moisturized not tight or irritated. This formula uses a blend of surfactants, naturally derived from coconut, pure silk fibers and amino acids, which produce a high foaming, hydrating cleanser with excellent rinse-ability.

Final product will be a neutral pH, amber-colored clear liquid.

1. Combine Phase A ingredients in a large mixing container by gently mixing after addition of each ingredient. Heat mixture to 70°C (158°F) in double boiler.

2. In a separate mixing container, heat the water in Phase B until it reaches 70-80°C (158-176°F), and add the SurfThix DOE stirring until dissolved in solution. Add Phase B to Phase A ingredients and gently stir until thoroughly combined.

3. Remove mixing container from heat and allow to cool to 35°C (95°F) or cooler before addition of Phase C ingredients. If desired, place the mixing container in an ice bath to speed the cooling process.

4. Add Phase C ingredients and mix by gently stirring. As the mixture cools and over the next 24 hours, the shampoo will continue to thicken.

5. Test the pH. The unadjusted pH of the shampoo is approximately 8.0-8.2, adjust with 20% Citric Acid Solution to a final pH of 7.0-7.5.
