Formulating tips:

For liquid formulations add at 25°c-45°c water with moderate mixing to disperse and dissolve. If you add to too hot of water the noodles may form particles that take a while to dissolve so watch your water temperature.

Can be used as is in dry products.

SLS can be toxic if taken orally. For topical use only. Use normal safety precautions when adding to formulas (safety goggles, mask, gloves). Once blended into finished product safety precautions are not necessary.
