Let's Make A Fail Proof Body Wash

Foaming products can be hard to formulate, particularly for beginners, even intermediate formulators struggle to get them right. Too often I see posts of people struggling with separation issues or a lack of bubbles. In upcoming posts I will start to go over why it is so hard to get our bubbling products just right. I have put together a fail proof easy to make body wash formulation that will foam perfectly in the shower.

Why are foaming products so difficult to get right ??

The short answer is that you need a combination of an anionic, amphoteric and non ionic surfactants to start, while understanding what cationic ingredients will be compatible. Your probably thinking " Kennece anionic and cationic ingredients aren't compatible ", they usually aren't but there are exceptions when working with surfactants. This is why so many people face challenges with these products inparticular.

The good news is........

There are some pre blended surfactants that allow new formulators to make foaming products before learning the science behind formulating with surfactants.

Let's take a look at BSB Liquid Surfactant.
