Sodium chloride is in fact common table salt, although ours is intended for use in cosmetics. Incidentally, the quality we sell is not intended to be eaten.

Sodium chloride is widely used for thickening shampoo. Not every shampoo thickens with sodium chloride, by the way, but if it contains some Detergent (SLES) Hx or Zetesol, it usually goes very well. In addition, it is an excellent bath salt base, a finer powder than our basic bath salt.

It is best to make a strong solution for use as a thickener. Dissolve about 30 grams of sodium chloride in 100 ml of water. That often doesn't work. Add this solution to the mixed other ingredients of shampoo, shower gel or bath foam. About 10 ml of sodium chloride solution per 100 ml of shampoo usually provides the best thickening. It is best to add it in small bits and while stirring well, until the desired thickness is reached. If you keep adding sodium chloride, the viscosity will decrease again at some point, so don't forget to stop in time.

As a bath salt it can be used just like our basic bath salt, see the recipes. Because it is finer it does not matter that it is not coated with a dissolving aid, the greater surface area of ??the finer sodium chloride retains more color and odor than that of the coarse salt.

Outside of cosmetics, sodium chloride is used in marine aquariums and in electrolysis experiments, among other things.

De Hekserij does not sell products intended for use in foodstuffs or for other internal use. This product is NOT an exception.
