    @Ishita Manek – Hello Mam , Coco betain is available with us ( Only Aloe vera is of 2 types, rest all are 10:1 extracts , please use 10:1 extract…. thanks for the suggestion, will keep that in mind for next time

  • Ishita Manek

    Hi, it mentions salt….is that regular table salt? I wanted to know if coco betain is available with you’ll as I couldnt find it on the website. Also, the extracts mentioned….what ratio extract is to be used (eg aloe 2:1, 10:1?)? I was confused as there are 2 types on your website. Would love to try this out at home, would suggest that the ingredient list mention the exact form (liquid/powder/ratio) of the ingredient as mentioned on your website as it makes it easier to select it for someone with no chemistry back ground :) I hope to try this recipe once I get these clarifications.
