Although, this pH-balanced shower gel has a pH of 4.5 to 5, which is near to the pH of human skin and less prone to irritate. Of course, you may test the pH of the finished product to ensure that it is where we want it to be.
That is why I will like you to understand pH balancing, but before I go into details of how to produce quality antiseptic shower gel; I think it’s important we discuss how to control our shower gel pH; should incase it’s too acidic or alkaline.

Chemicals Needed For 20litres Antiseptic Shower Gel
This is the thickening agent use in the liquid soap production process. It comes as a whitish substance and has the texture of powdered milk. The difference between Nitrosol and Antisol is that the former dissolves immediately in water while the latter takes a longer time.
STPP (SODIUM TRIPOLYPHOSPHATE) – 200G
STPP is a sodium salt of triphosphoric acid. It has the appearance of white crystal powder and looks very much like a table salt. It is a strong cleaning agent too and helps the SLS to work on its full potential.
SODIUM BICARBONATE 350G
Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as Baking Soda are used to control the acid-base balance of cosmetic products. In cosmetics and personal care products, Sodium Bicarbonate may also be used as an abrasive, a deodorant agent , and an oral care agent
Chloroxylenol is an antimicrobial used to treat cuts, bites, stings, abrasions, and used as an antiseptic hand cleaner. Chloroxylenol, or para-chloro-meta-xylenol (PCMX), is an antiseptic and disinfectant agent used for skin disinfection and surgical instruments.
SLS (SODIUM LAURYL SULPHATE) – 500G
The SLS resembles rice grains and it’s whitish in color. It is a surfactant which helps to lower the surface tension of the aqueous solution. It is the main active foaming agent.
SODIUM BENZOATE 2 Tablespoon
Sodium Benzoate is a chemical compound that is known for being used as a preservative.
Glycerin helps the skin retain moisture, softens it, and makes the body wash softer; this is needed for a moisturizing shower gel.
VITAMIN E (50ML)
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that promotes healthy skin and cell renewal. Vitamin E oil is rather sticky and will take some time to dissolve.
COLOR (As Desired)
Color helps to tint your shower gel, use soap colors or food coloring. Some food colors can take a long to dissolve but will work great otherwise.
PERFUME (As Desired)
Perfume gives the right fragrance to your shower gel.
Please Note: Because shower gel is a wash-off product, I recommend saving more costly skincare products for longer-lasting applications such as lotions or creams. It makes no sense to include an expensive liposome complex in a treatment that is applied and rinsed off in minutes.
How to Make Shower Gel Thicker
There are various methods for organically thickening shower gel:
Salt is frequently used to thicken body washes. It transforms well-known surfactants into a gel texture. Many commercial cleansers and shampoos utilize salt as a thickening, which is indicated as Sodium Chloride in the INICI (yes, that’s table salt, in case you’re wondering).
Botanical gums and starches are natural polymers. Natural polymers such as xanthan gum, guar gum, glucomannan, sclerotium gum, CMC, carrageenan, and others can also be used to thicken shower gel. Natural gums can be used to thicken homemade body cleanser.
Lactic acid is the key ingredient in my thick, clear shower mix.
Milk powder is another thickening that creates a luxuriously creamy and rich body wash.
