A sulfate-free formula thanks to Miracare Soft S-525 MB, a surfactant concentrate that delivers strong foam, quick rinse, and mildness. This formula is sustainability-focused with the inclusion of guars Jaguar HP-105 SGI which thickens this formula effectively at low use levels; and Naternal Excel SGI which enhances the deposition of actives, such as Healthy Shine Lilac (S-Gly), or silicones, oils, and anti-dandruff agents on hair. Both guars provide excellent wet-combing and wet-feel and conditioning properties while maintaining the opaque look of the formula. The Healthy Shine Lilac restores shine by smoothing away hair scales and reinforcing natural protection. Additionally, this formula reduces irritation and energizes hair roots. Finally, Polycare Frizz Therapy addresses frizz challenges for all hair types and provides humidity resistance. A workhouse formula by itself, paired with the Split Second Conditioner, you’ll have a quick, effortless routine that delivers.

  1. Add DI water and start to form a vortex in beaker.
  2. In a side-phase, pre-mix Glycerin with HEC into a slurry and slowly add it into main phase.  Allow it to mix well.
  3. Slowly add Jaguar Excel  and allow to mix well for 10 minutes to ensure proper hydration.
  4. Slowly add Polycare Frizz Therapy and Jaguar HP 105 and allow to fully hydrate.
  5. Add Citric Acid and check pH of batch and see if it is between 3.5 – 5.0.
  6. Once all powders are fully hydrated, start to heat batch to 75 – 80C.
  7. Slow down mixing speed and while batch is heating, add Coco Glucoside, Coco Betaine, Miracare Soft 525, and then Miracare OPR-2.  Allow to mix well after each addition.
  8. Allow batch to fully reach 75 – 80C and allow to mix well for 10 minutes.  Then, start to cool batch.
  9. At 50C, add Healthy Shine Lilac and the preservative and allow it to mix well.  Adjust mixing speed as necessary to reduce aeration.
