Procedure
Disperse Carbopol Ultrez 21 Polymer by sprinkling on the surface of deionized water. When polymer has wet, begin gentle agitation. Slowly add Fixate Superhold Polymer to the mixing vessel. Mix until uniform. Slowly add Fixate Plus Polymer to the mixing vessel, with agitation. Mix until uniform. Slowly add triethanolamine (99%) with agitation. Adjust mixing speed as needed. Mix until a uniform gel is obtained. Slowly add Germaben II to batch, mix until uniform. Adjust pH with triethanolamine (99%) to 6.5-7.0 if necessary. Scrape the sides of the vessel to incorporate all ingredients into the gel, assuring homogeneity.
