1.     Use a Lightnin’®  Mixer or similar variable speed unit and an impeller suitable for general mixing and blending operations.  Add the Pemulen®* Polymer into the vortex of the rapidly agitating d-limonene (~800rpm).  Allow to mix until homogenous and free of polymer lumps.

2.     Using moderate agitation ,add the deionized water to the oil phase and mix for~10minutes. Mix until uniform.

3.     PART C:  Premix the propylene glycol, glycerin, Glucam™*E-20 Humectant,  laureth-7, and preservative together.  Add to main batch.  Mix until uniform.
4.    Add sodium hydroxide to the formulation – check the pH frequently, until pH5.8 is achieved. For best results keep pH under 6.0.

**Optional Ingredients:  Add pumice, abrasive, color or fragrance if desired.
