Detoxifying Syndet Shampoo Bar

Rub shampoo bar over wet hair or in the hands to create a lather. Rub the lather over your scalp and hair then rinse off and condition as required.

Stage 1: (above 75°C)
50% SCI Solid Surfactant (ground to a powder in a coffee grinder)
---------------------------
22% Beta T
9% Emulsifying Wax
5% Tomato Seed Oil (or any vegetable oil suitable for hair use)
3% Cetearyl Alcohol

Stage 2:
5% Comfrey Glycerol Extract
2% Activated Charcoal Powder
 
Stage 3: (below 40°C)
1.1% Preservative Eco Plus
1% Lemon Essential Oil
1% Tea Tree Essential Oil
0.9% Rosemary Verbenone Essential Oil
100% Total
 
Method:


Please make sure you wear a suitable face mask when using SCI Solid Surfactant.
 
Melt Stage 1 ingredients in a double boiler / bain marie. Add to ground down Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate and stir in well until fully combined. Mix the melted ingredients in thoroughly but try not to make much SCI Solid Surfactant fly when doing so. You can keep this on the heat but don't worry if the powdered SCI Solid Surfactant does not melt completely, you just need everything too be well combined. Remember to wear your face mask!

Remove from the double boiler and add Stage 2 ingredients. Stir well to fully combine. You may find you need to work the ingredients together firmly to get them properly mixed in.

Add the Stage 3 ingredients and mix in thoroughly. This may take some time as the other ingredients cool quite quickly and form a thick mouldable putty like mixture. Squishing the ingredients with the back of a large spoon works well when making small batches.
 
Press firmly into suitable moulds, refrigerate until set. Release from moulds and allow to harden in a safe place. Turn your fresh shampoo bars every day so that each side gets exposed to the air and hardens evenly.
 
Wrap and label. Allow to dry between use.

“The shelf life will be determined by the preservative that you use. As long as you use your ingredients within their individual best before dates the preservative should then give your product an expected shelf life of 12 – 18 months.”

“We created several different shampoo bars using the same surfactant combination and a variety of hair appropriate active ingredients.

This particular shampoo bar has a pH in the range of 5-6 which is appropriate for the hair.

We also tested several different essential oil blends in the shampoo bars and found that the final pH was always within the 5-6 range."
