Procedure

  

Use a dust mask. Weigh the sea buckthorn fruit oil, orange lake dye, powdered surfactants, and Cocamidopropyl Betaine into a suitable vessel and mix well. It will form a stiff paste.

Melt the Mango butter, BTMS-25, stearic acid, and cetyl alcohol together. Pour that mixture into the surfactant mash and and mix till homogenous. Once you’re done stirring everything together the mixture should be cool enough (below 50°C) to proceed. If it still feels hot to the touch, let it cool until it feels cool to the touch before continuing.

Cool to less than 50°C

Add the fragrance oil and preservative and mix together until thoroughly combined.

Press the mixture into the mold Freeze for twenty minutes before unmolding, and then leave to dry for a week.

To use, glide the bar over wet hair a couple times to deposit some shampoo—that’ll be enough to fully lather up your head and wash your hair! Make sure you leave the bar somewhere it can drain and dry out between uses for the longest shelf life.

When made as written, the pH of these shampoo bars is approximately 4–4.5, which is suitable for the hair. If any alterations/substitutions are made please test and adjust the pH as necessary.
