Shower gel can often be used as body and hair wash. It has good foam and cleansing properties. This Shower gel is made of natural surfactants which are mild and suitable for sensitive skin too.
Let’s see the ingredients used:
Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate is natural anionic surfactant which is known to be milder than Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate. It is a mild surfactant, suitable for sensitive skin types too.
Anionic surfactant adds foam and cleansing properties. However to make it even milder, combination of surfactants need to be used. Here we are using Coco betaine which is an amphoteric surfactant. Coco betaine works as secondary surfactant and also adds foam.
Soidum Cocoyl glutamate can be used for Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate.
Glycerin is a humectant which hydrates the skin.
Sodium Gluconate is a chelating ingredient which increases shelf life and prevents product reacting to metal ions.
Hydrolysed oat protein has moisturising properties and anti-inflammatory properties.
Blue berry extract has anti-oxidant properties. Other extract can be used of the choice.
Jojoba beads are natural biodegradable beads, added for exfoliating properties.
To thicken this shower gel, we are using xanthan gum. Other natural gum can be used for xanthan gum.
To preserve this product, we have natural preservative Geogard ECT.

Cups to measure ingredients
- Measure Phase A and Phase B ingredients in a beaker.
- Hydrate gum in glycerine.
- For the color, dip the spatula in bottle and dust it in Phase B. Little amount gives so dark color. I am using less than 0.05% which is hardly measurable.
- Add Phase B to Phase A and stir gently. Excessive stirring can generate lot of foam.
- Now add Phase C ingredients one after other.
- Test pH and adjust to 5.5
- Pour it in a bottle.
