Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

The recipe can be prepared with Cocamidopropyl betaine in both liquid and powder versions.
If you are working with a liquid surfactant, follow the dosages and instructions given in the recipe.
If you are using a powdered surfactant, first prepare the required amount of solution following the instructions below:
Liquid Cocamidopropyl betaine can be easily obtained from Cocamidopropyl betaine powder by mixing one part powder + 2 parts flat/distilled water.
• to get 10 gr of liquid Cocamidopropyl betaine mix 3.3 gr of powder + 6.7 gr water
• to get 25 gr of liquid Cocamidopropyl betaine mix 8.3 gr of powder + 16.7 gr water
• to get 100 gr of liquid Cocamidopropyl betaine mix 33 gr of powder + 67 gr water

Preparation method:
Add the flat water and floral water to a glass and mix, then sprinkle the xanthan gum and mix vigorously until the gum is completely dispersed. The solution is left to rest for approximately 10 minutes to form a light gel. In the meantime, phase B is being prepared.

In another beaker add the phase B surfactants and mix slowly, thoroughly. If the Lauryl glucoside is whitish and viscous, it must first be fluidized in a hot water bath until it becomes translucent. Over the mixture of surfactants add the natural fragrance oil and mix well.

The phase A gel is added progressively (in 4-5 portions) over phase B, stirring slowly and thoroughly after each addition. Avoid excessive foaming.

At the end, add the rest of the ingredients from the phase C one at a time, mixing after each one. The resulting composition is transferred to the dedicated bottle; the formed foam will recede the next day. pH: ~6,5-7

The result is a bath gel suitable for children (3+) and teenagers, especially for girls, due to the color and smell that will surely be to their liking.

Options and explanations:

  • instead of the proposed fragrance oil, an aromatic extract can be used, for example melon extract (which we tested in this formula), it fits very well, intertwining nicely with the smell of rose water; 1% is sufficient, adjusting the percentage of flat water accordingly
  • for hydration, approximately 5% glycerin can be included in phase A, decreasing the percentage of flat water accordingly
  • cosgard cannot be replaced in this recipe with grapefruit seed extract


  • Difficulty: beginner/advanced/experienced
  • Utensils: precision tablespoon, 2 glasses, teaspoon/spatula
  • Recommended container: Globe or Cristal bottle, 250 ml with pump dispenser
  • Shelf-life: 3 months - prepared in optimal conditions of hygiene, stored in a cool place
