Frustrated when adding loofah, pearls, beads, glitters or other exfoliants to your shower gel only to watch them sink to the bottom or float to the top?

What you need is Suspension Shower Gel !

It will suspend additives in a practically
"anti-gravity state"





Exactly what is Suspension Shower Gel?

As the name implies, it is a gel formulation that has the ability to suspend hard lightweight additives. Have you ever tried to suspend items in a regular shower gel? Very frustrating, we know. No matter how thick the gel is, if it is not specifically formulated to suspend, it will just allow the additives to sink to the bottom or float to the top. Our suspension shower gel can be used as a shower gel, bubble bath, body wash and hand washes. It is ready to use and dilution is not required.

The air bubbles in the suspension shower gel base, along with the purple spheres, create a fantastic display!






What to put in the base?

Although it is pretty enough with the air bubbles it comes with, it is designed to suspend. We have seen people add jojoba beads, vita beads, pearls, glitters and micas. Many add exfoliants like crushed walnut or apricot shells, ground loofah or pumice. Whether your additives are merely a visual effect, a vitamin additive or an exfoliant, the suspension shower gel base is designed to suspend them.

Be Creative !

Don't limit yourself. Any hard lightweight item can be suspended. Try one for the kids with small plastic toys such as fish, happy faces, soldiers, stars, spiders, snakes, etc. You can even make wedding favors or baby shower giveaways.





About the base

As with all our other bases, the suspension shower gel base is manufactured in our lab using our own proprietary formula. Unlike other suspension bases that are yellowish or milky, our suspension base is very clear. All the pictures shown here are actual pictures of our base. The air bubbles you see in all the pictures are part of the base and are introduced during the manufacturing process(those are free).

The base is thick , clear and unscented. It can be used as a shower gel, body wash, bubble bath or hand wash. It can be easily scented with your own fragrance or essential oil. We recommend 1/2 oz to 1 oz of scent oil to a whole gallon of base. It may be slightly warmed to facilitate scenting and pouring.

All surfactants used in the base are natural and derived from coconut oil. It contains moisture carrying ingredients and an ingredient that has UVA absorbing properties and is an anti photo-oxidant. The base is preserved and has been challenge tested with a 2 year shelf life. Full Ingredients list below.
