Making Shampoo Recipes: 4 Easy Steps Making Shampoo for Business – Commercial shampoos nowadays are too expensive while cheaper ones may contain dangerous chemicals. This is a great business opportunity for you to offer consumers an alternative by formulating your own brand of all-natural shampoos or aromatherapy shampoo that can be sold at more affordable prices. Salons, hotels, luxury liners, or airlines that provide shampoo as part of their room service are possible markets for your un-branded shampoo.
Best of all, you can start your making shampoo business with just P1,000.00 start-up capital, and you can make 10 bottles of your homemade shampoo working 30 minutes with the making shampoo recipes we will tackle below.
Materials needed to make your alternative shampoo:
Surfactant, 130 grams: this allows water and oil to mix (P150 per kilo)
De-ionized water, 793 g; water that has been treated to remove minerals (P1.50 per kg.)
FD&C dye as colorant, 1 g (P6,500 per kilogram)
Stabilizer, 4 g (P250 per kilogram)
PQ-7 as conditioner, 5 g (P150 per kilogram)
M-50 as preservative, 1 g (P1,900 per kilogram)
CDA as foam booster, 40 g (P150 per kilogram)
PK771 as pearlizer, 8 g (P300 per kilogram)
TDTA as chelating agent, 1 g (P850 per kilogram)
SHQ-60 as moisturizer, 13 g (P250 per kilogram)
Fragrance, 4 g (P2,500 per kilogram)
Industrial salt, 5 g (P14 per kilogram)
Clean plastic basins
A small beaker
You can buy a kit of the raw chemicals from the Ultima Entrepinoy Forum Center for P150 to P200, or you can buy them in bulk from chemical manufacturers and retailers.
Procedures to make shampoo:
1. Dissolve the surfactant in 700 grams of de-ionized water using a plastic container. Stir the water continuously in one direction for about 30 minutes until all the surfactant is dissolved. Set aside.
2. Put de-oinized water in two separate plastic containers, one to dissolve the chelating agent and the other to dissolve the industrial salt. Stir until dissolved and then set aside.
Tips: Be precise and accurate with the measurement or raw materials. Slight difference and mistakes in the order of mixing the ingredients will result in below-standard shampoo (such as one with decreased lather and a thin consistency.)
3. Get the dissolved surfactant solution and add the other raw materials in the specified order listed above. Make sure that each chemical is completely dissolved before adding the next one.
4. Wait for the bubbles to subside. You may cover the solution with cloth. Then use a beaker to pour the shampoo in individual bottles.
Tips: Store the finished product away from sunlight. With proper storage, the shampoo can last up two years.
How much will you make with this shampoo recipes?
You may mark up the product up to 100 percent or sell the shampoo at P50 per 100 grams.
