Method of Manufacture

Into the main vessel add:

Water: Start the mixer on a fast speed

Carbomer: Mix until lump free and homogenous


Use the homogeniser at speed 500 for 30 seconds if any lumps persist.


Into the main vessel add:

Cosphaderm® Propanediol natural: Mix until homogeneous

Start heating the main vessel to 75C – 80C.


Into the premix vessel add:

Glyceryl Stearate SE

Stearyl Alcohol

PolyAquol™ 2W: Commence heating the premix vessel to 75-80C.


When both vessels are at 75C – 80C add the premix vessel into the main vessel.

Mix and homogenise for 10 minutes.


After 5 minutes, into the main vessel add:

Cosphagard Cap

After 10 minutes commence cooling to 35C.

Stop Homogenising and continue with slow stirring only.


Into the main vessel add:

Cetpro APG 1200MB: Mix until homogeneous


The product will thicken as the APG 1200 neutralises the Carbomer

As the bulk cools & thickens, adjust the mixer speed accordingly to ensure adequate turnover but avoiding aeration.


When the bulk is at 45C into the main vessel add:

floviva Murumuru Scrub: Mix until homogeneous

Pagoda Tree Herbasol Extract: Mix until homogeneous


Cool the bulk to 23C and check the product specifications.
