Shower Gel Instructions

Our ultra thick shower gel is so thick that you can suspend almost anything. It is very popular and of the highest quality. It also doubles as a bubble bath base if so desired. It is crystal clear and instructions for scenting is below:

Items needed to custom blend your own luxury shower gel:

  • 1 lb. shower gel*
  • ~1/4 to 1/2 oz. fragrance oil (SOS Concentration) - You will need to adjust for Ultra Concentrate (to ~1/6 to 1/8 oz.) or Extreme Concentrate (to ~1/8 to 1/10 oz. or several squirts from an eye dropper)
  • FD&C water based colorant (if desired)
  • Hand towels (if needed)
  • Polysorbate 20
* Don't forget to purchase some spout caps for the larger bottles to work with or if you purchased a gallon jug, to have a lotion pump to work with as it will make it easier.

Step 1:   Slowly heat a medium to large sized pot of water for double boiling (if you have a double boiler- then use that instead).

Step 2:  Fill the bottle(s) with shower gel .

Step 3:  Put the bottle(s) in the pot and watch very closely (this will thin the shower gel and make it more manageable). Do not over boil, as the gel tends to bubble over. WATCH THE SHOWER GEL CAREFULLY

Step 4:  When the shower gel is thin, remove from water.

Step 5:  Add your fragrance oil (equal parts fragrance and equal parts polysorbate), and a couple drops of water based colorant as desired.  The polysorbate will solve the emulsification issues, allow the mixture to remain clear and thick.

Shower Gel 1/4-1/2 oz. per lb. 1/4-1/8 oz. per lb. 1/8-1/16 oz. per lb.

REMEMBER: To also add the equivalent amount of polysorbate to aid the mixture.

Step 6:  Put the cap on, and gently fold mix evenly. (Tip: Put the bottle in your hand and extend your hand in front of your body. Then gently rotate the bottle from left to right. DO NOT SHAKE THE BOTTLE or you will get a massive amount of bubbles and it may break down the consistency permanently.

Step 7:  If you are pouring into smaller containers, now is a good time, otherwise, let cool in this bottle and the gel will thicken. We sell HDPE plastic bottles and spout caps and PET plastic bullet bottles with caps for smaller sizes.

For larger batches (1 gallon) put filled gallon jug in a pot of water and follow the instructions above.  Be sure to have a lotion pump as it may make it easier to work with.


  • You can also heat up larger batches in the microwave. However, you will need to watch this product very closely, as it will overflow if it is left unattended.
  • Fragrance usage rates: 2-6 oz per gallon (depending on preference). Adjust for Ultra Concentrate or Extreme Concentrate.
  • FD&C colorant: add by drops.
