Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“I’m sorry but we have no idea.

Lumorol K5229 was manufactured to work well with a high percentage of oils without the need for any additional emulsifier.

We don’t work with Decyl Glucoside so cannot guess what may work. Perhaps try contacting your supplier of the ingredient and ask them the same question."

Hello. I am trying to replicate this recipe but only have decyl glucoside in place of lumorol. What emulsifier could I use with this to ensure there is no separation of the ingredients?

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“Lemon essential oil is unlikely to lower the pH of a product significantly if at all.

As the Foaming Shower Oil is only in contact with the skin for a very short period of time if the end product has a pH of 7, which is the pH of the Lumerol K5229, this should not be a problem, especially as the Foaming Shower Oil has a relatively high oil content of 40% which we found to be nicely moisturising.

We use Lactic Acid to lower the pH of surfactant type products but that does have a water content."

Can you recommend a way to reduce ph to 5 or 6 in this recipe without adding water? Would lemon oil accomplish this? I’ve ruled out citric acid because it requires water. I am trying to keep the product anhydrous so that it doesn’t require preservatives or stability testing.
Thank you.
