Method:
  • Combine both detergents together, and they will start to thicken. Then stir in the essential oils thoroughly
  • Mix the Stage 2 water and salt together. The hot water ensures the salt will dissolve thoroughly. Add the EcoChic Conditioning Agent and stir to dissolve.
  • Combine with the Stage 1 mixture and stir thoroughly without creating any foam
  • Then cool down to below 40 °C.
  • Add the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients and stir gently to combine thoroughly. Check pH to be between 5 and 7. Adjust if needed. Bottle and label.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Preservatives can be defeated by hard water. The variety of tap waters around is so variable that there would be no consistency. Also, if you start retailing your products, you need to have traceability of the ingredients. A bottle of water has a batch number that you cannot get with tap water. We recommend not to use mineral water because, as said, the mineral content can affect the preservative, so we recommend bottle spring water. You could also use bottled distilled water if it has a traceable batch number.

Hi, Please can you advise the relevance of using spring water as opposed to any other type of water? Thanks

The Inulin is now called EcoChic Conditioning Agent and I will get that details changed. Use it at the same percentage.

If you are not familiar with working with percentages, it is really simple and much more accurate that other methods.

Everything is weighed – even the liquids.

The recipe as show would use 20g Alpha, 10g Sugar and so on. The end result would be 100g of shampoo.

If you want to make half a kilo, simply multiply everything by 5, as an example."
