Procedure
Combine D and mix until salicylic acid crystals are fully dissolved. Set aside for later addition. Dissolve disodium EDTA in water. When disodium EDTA is fully dissolved, set mixing speed @400-500 rpm and slowly disperse Carbopol Ultrez 30 polymer into water. Mix until polymer is fully hydrated. Premix B into a uniform slurry and add to A. Increase mixing speed as needed to maintain uniformity. Add C to A/B and increase mixing speed as needed to maintain uniformity. Continue mixing for 10 minutes. Add D to batch and adjust mixing speed as needed to reduce any splashing due to viscosity change. Mix until uniform. Premix E and add to batch. Mix until uniform. Add F ingredients individually, mixing between additions.
