I thought I'd thicken up the body wash I formulated for really oily skin earlier this week, the recipe for which you can find in that post. (In the video, I mention that I'm using the Japanese body wash recipe from this post. I did that little experiment, but I didn't end up videoing it. Instead, I used the video from the oily body wash recipe! I have to fix that!)
The end result is that I used 4.67% Ritathix DOE to thicken my black amber lavender fragranced body wash and 4.4% to fragrance a body wash with Axe Phoenix fragrance oil to get that kind of consistency. That's not what I normally want from a body wash; I prefer it a little thicker. It wasn't watery like the starting point, but it wasn't that thick and luscious looking liquid I prefer in a product.
But we should do more comparisons! Join me on Monday when we compare Ritathix DOE with liquid Crothix in a head-to-head comparison of thickening abilities and skin feel!
