 Bubble Bath Recipe

65% water
20% coco betaine can use another or two together, coco glucoside or decylglucoside and coco betaine, although you may need to adjust the ph.
5% slsa or sodium coco sulfate
4%  glycerin or castor, light oils don’t work well
4% cocomide DEA
1% preservative of choice (use preservative guidelines)

1% fragrance oil  (If you choose you can add poly 80) if you do subtract that amount from water amount.
Add the 4% glycerin or castor oil to the SLSA and make a paste. Add 1-2 oz water and Stick blend to remove lumps. Add coco betaine and coco DEA to each other and add to slsa or SCS mixture after lumps are out of SLSA or SCS/water mixture, then add that mixture to remaining water. Stir gently by hand to keep bubbles from forming.

  1. I would LOVE to make this but I am new to alot of this and I do not know how to convert this into ounces or grams. Could you please help me with that.

    • The easiest way for you to do it would be to make a 10 oz batch. By doing so the percentages are basically converted to ounces.
      That would mean
      6.5 oz water
      2.0 oz coco betaine
      0.5 oz sodium coco sulfate
      0.4 oz glycerin or castor oil- glycerin is my first choice
      0.4 oz cocomide DEA
      0.1 oz preservative
      0.1 oz fragrance

      If you wanted to make it 100 oz then everything would be tenfold, your 6.5 oz water would become 65 oz water etc.. Basically move the decimal point to the right one digit and remove anything in before the decimal if it is a zero. If you wanted to make 50 oz total you would do the same and then divide by 2 each ingredient.
      I hope that helps

  2. Is there any substitute for the cocomide dea?

    • There are several brand alternatives out there. Promidium 2, Promidium CO, Amidet to name a few. You could also just up the decylglucoside but it may be a bit thinner.

    • you could adjust down with citric acid if needed, but we have not found the need to do so.

          I posted the new recipe. It is called Indulgence thick liquid bubble bath. I have been using this for a few months and a little goes a long way. This is the best formula yet for leaving the skin feel well moisturized and creating large and lasting bubbles. Please let us know how you like it if you make it.
