In a heatproof glass add the ingredients of phase A. In another heatproof glass add the ingredients of phase B. Place both beakers on the water bath, stirring occasionally. When they have reached a temperature of 70°C they are removed from the heat. Slowly pour phase A over phase B, mixing in between. Mix for about 1 minute (only work with a new type of mixer, corded or on batteries).

Place the beaker in a bowl of cold water to accelerate cooling, blending for about 2 minutes more. Avoid excess air during mixing.

When the mixture has reached hand temperature, add the Phase C ingredients and mix thoroughly by hand. Transfer the resulting mixture to the container. The viscosity will be finalised on the following day. pH: ~5-5,5
