Hi! As you can see on my username, I'm currently stuck on my experimental research.
Basically, I'll formulate a dishwashing liquid by mixing water, sodium hydroxide, DDBSA, Cocamide DEA, then sodium chloride.
I'll make 2 batches of it, and I already have all the chemicals and materials except DDBSA. I can't get DDBSA because I need some form of a prescription.
However. i found that LABSA is a general form of DDBSA. And I can easily get LABSA.
So I'm asking, can LABSA be used as a substitute to DDBSA in the formulation above?
Also, follow up question:
Ill make 2 batches of the formulation, but on one batch, ill substitute coconut juice to sodium hydroxide. And ill compare their efficiency. Is that safe?
Any answer (suggestion, direct answer, etc.) js greatly welcomed.
