Preparation method:
Phase A: Transfer the gentle washing base and the Coco-glucoside and Glyceryl oleate to a glass and mix until it becomes a uniform and viscous composition. Add the Decyl glucoside and mix slowly, thoroughly.

Phase B: In another glass, mix the water with the chlorophyll *. Gradually sprinkle xanthan gum over the evenly colored solution and mix vigorously by hand. Leave to rest for about 10 minutes to form a light gel.
* chlorophyll dosage: for batches before no. 74120, a slightly larger amount than indicated in the recipe will be used

Phase B is gradually added over phase A and mixed slowly and thoroughly, avoiding excessive foaming.
Finally, add the phase C ingredients one at a time and mix slowly, thoroughly.

The resulting composition is transferred to the dedicated container. The formed foam will withdraw and the composition will be clarified the next day.

The result is a toning and invigorating shower gel with a fresh scent, suitable for women and men alike.
