Add water to main vessel and start mixing. Add Geropon T-77 and begin heating to 65-70°C. Once the Geropon T-77 is dissolved, add the Mackamide CPA and mix until melted and batch is uniform. Discontinue heat. Add Geropon TC-42 and Mackam 35, and mix until uniform. Once the batch temperature is below 60°C yet above 50°C, add the Mackanate LO and mix until uniform. Add the argan oil and mix until uniform. Once the batch has reached 40°C, add the Mackadet OPR-1 and mix until uniform. (Please note: If Mackadet OPR-1 has set up into a soft solid, gently heat to 35°C and mix before use.) Premix the Jaguar C-162 into the glycerin.
