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

Preparation method:
Add the Phase A ingredients to a heat-resistant beaker. Add the water from phase B to another heat-resistant container.
Phases A and B are placed in a water bath, heating them to 70°C, after which they are removed from the heat. If you do not have a thermometer available, the heating will be done until the melting of phase A is complete.

Phase B is poured over phase A, in which the mixer is already working. Mix for 3 minutes; if the mixer no longer copes, continue to stir manually. To accelerate the cooling process, place the composition over a bowl of cold water and continue to mix manually for 3 more minutes.

To the composition cooled to body temperature, add the ingredients of phase C, mixing after each. If the Lauryl glucoside is whitish and viscous, it must first be fluidized by heating.
The conditioner thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~5-5,5
