Procedure
Prepare a 2% solution of SoftCAT SK-L by sprinkling into agitating, room temperature water. Allow to disperse completely before beginning to heat slowly, with mixing to 60-65*C. Solution should be crystal clear. Prepare a 2% solution of Methocel 40-202 by sprinkling into room temperature, rapidly agitating water. Allow polymer to disperse completely. Adjust pH to at least 8.5 using NaOH (10% aq) to fully hydrate the polymer. Combine water, sodium laureth sulfate and disodium laureth sulfosuccinate in a beaker. Midx until uniform. Add solutions of SoftCAT SK-L and Methocel 40-202. Mix until uniform. Heat formulation to 65-70*C with mixing. Add PEG-150 Distearate. Mix until dissolved and uniform. Cool formulation while mixing to 40*C. Add perfume and DMDM Hydantoin. After cooling to room temperature, adjust pH to desired level using appropiate acid.
