INSTRUCTIONS

#Mix PHASE A ingredients

#You have the option of adding the PHASE B ingredients one-by-one into PHASE A or combine PHASE B ingredients in a separate vessel and mix into PHASE A

#Add to the final container.

#You can use it immediately, but it will be full of bubbles. Let it sit 24-48 hours and the body wash will go clear

#You can add a skin-safe colorant if you want. (I skipped the color)

MY NOTES

#This is a basic, effective Easy AF body wash. As a general rule, don’t waste any of your good extracts and actives on cleansing recipes unless you need to tell a “story” about the product in order to sell it. That’s blunt. But it’s the truth.

#Try not to skip the Polyquaternium 7. It really does improve the glide and slip of the body wash, in my opinion.

#If you want to create a pearlized, opaque version of this, add 0.7 – 1% of “Pearlizing Concentrate Easy Q” (aka Pearlogen SF 3000). Take that amount from the distilled water percentage

#Not a lot to say about it other than it works without leaving my skin feeling like the desert. Sometimes it’s better than your creation is simple. Save all of your great extracts for your leave-in conditioners, sprays, balms and faux-greases. If the product you’re making it working like it should, those ingredients will get washed down the drain and won’t be on the skin long enough to do what you want it to do.

#You can actually go up to 5% of Coco Glucoside. It may make the skin feel a tad bit softer after rinse-off, but it’s totally arbitrary.
