- Measure the liquid phase into a container, then mix well with a fork or spoon.
- Sprinkle the Sepimax Zen over the liquid, and start mixing with a hand mixer until thickened, which is about 10 minutes. So boring, I know!
- When it's thickened, measure in the surfactant phase and mix carefully until uniform, about one minute or so. Try not to get it too bubbly.
- Put this in a bottle with a disc cap when thickened.
Exfoliating cleanser modifications:
If you wanted to turn this into an exfoliating product, you could add up to 5% apricot shells to the mix. You could also use pumice (super fine or extra fine) if you wanted to use this as a body or foot product.
Foaming bottle modifications:
If you want to make this as a foamer bottle product, just leave out the Sepimax Zen!
Modifications for different skin types:
If you wanted to make this for very oily skin, Bio-Terge AS40 can be exchanged easily for foaming apple, oats, or silk at the same amount.
If you wanted to make this for acne prone skin, 0.5% of White Willow Bark Extract can be added to the liquid phase. You may need to heat the water slightly to make sure it all dissolves. This will have a slightly brown tint. You could also use 1% Sodium Lactate 60 in the product as this can help with acne.
