PREPARATIVE PROCEDURE

1To a secondary vessel add phase A and start mixing. Disperse phase B ingredients individually in Phase A with continued mixing.
2Heat phase AB to 85°C and then add phase C ingredients, in order, with mixing.
3Add water of phase D to the main vessel, dissolve Disodium EDTA and with continued mixing add Xanthan Gum.
4When Xanthan Gum is fully incorporated, start heating phase D to 80°C and add premixed phase E.
5When both phases are homogeneous and at their designated temperatures, slowly add oil phase ABC to water phase DE with prop mixing.
6Homogenize the combined phases for 3 minutes and then resume prop mixing and start cooling batch.
7When batch is below 50°C add phase F and continue cooling.
8When batch is at room temperature, replace any water lost to evaporation and mix until batch is smooth.
