Since fragrance oils contain chemicals which may affect the viscosity of your finished product, we suggest testing small batches.  Some fragrance oils may thin the bath gel, while other fragrance oils may actually thicken the gel.   In the event that your finished bath gel becomes too thin after adding fragrance to it, you may want to add some table salt to the mixture and heat.  Adding table salt (starting with a very small amount, and working your way up) to fragranced surfactants usually helps to thicken the end product.  Each fragrance differs in chemical composition, so they will each affect the end product differently.

For easy dispensing,
try one of our gallon pumps!

Essential Oils may be used in place of fragrance oils (Review IFRA sheet for any essential oil you want to use). In fact, peppermint essential oil will add a cooling effect to your bath gel, shampoo, bubble bath.

7.  Citric Acid- A natural cleaning agent and preservative.
8.  Kathon CG- An antimicrobial agent used to kill bacteria, fungi, and yeast.

5 out of 5 stars BEST People & Dog Shampoo ever! 12/26/2013
Reviewer: Karen Brandt from Medford, WI US
I have used many different kinds of EXPENSIVE salon shampoos over the years...Redken, Biolage, etc. Using this as shampoo works far better plus a lot cheaper than any expensive salon shampoo on the market!!! I have very long hair and suffer from itchy dry scalp every winter. I also have oily skin and my hair gets very oily where I need to wash it every day. Both my husband and I use this as shampoo straight out of the bottle with NO fragrance oil added. We both LOVE it and it leaves our hairy squeaky clean, shiny and NO more problems with dry itchy scalp. I now can go days in between hair washing. I also use this as a dog shampoo and it works GREAT...soft, bouncy, shiny coats with no more dry flaky skin. My two Pomeranians LOVE this shampoo!
3 out of 5 stars really slippery 12/10/2013
Reviewer: Alexis from Dallas, TX US
I made this into a shower gel. I found this gel to leave the bath tub really slippery! It was more slippery than anything I've ever made (and I make bath bombs!). My customers felt the same.
4 out of 5 stars thickness 12/03/2013
Reviewer: D. Browning from OH US
I did not add too much FO as the customer wanted a light scent. It is very very think. The more I whipped it around mixing, the thicker it got ? I am sure I could not get it to funnel if I had to lol My probelm is I would like to thin it out . Ideas ?
4 out of 5 stars good 10/28/2013
Reviewer: Elizabeth Sobol from Nashville, TN US
FYY aromatherapy relaxation thins it out only a bit. no thickener needed
3 out of 5 stars 03/08/2013
Reviewer: Michelle P. from Indianapolis, IN US
Nice out of the bottle, but most fragrances tend to thin it out quite a bit so you will definitely need some Xanthum to help thicken it up. Made liquid hand soap with this and most of them turned out great, even though some of them were too thin, it still works well.
2 out of 5 stars Too thin 02/24/2013
Reviewer: Kelly B. from Indianapolis, IN US
The gel is good consistency out of the jug, but adding most fragrances thin it out to water-like consistency. I've tried 7 fragrances so far, and only 2 are a usable consistency. The others are too thin no matter how much thickener I add. I hope to salvage some by using it for foaming hand soap. I do not plan on buying this product again.
4 out of 5 stars Advice please 09/04/2012
Reviewer: Chrissidy from Bradford, MA US
I ordered a gallon of this Ritzy Gel. I made 2 shampoos, one with peppermint and one with green apple explosion fragrance oils. The peppermint one isn't very thick and the apple one is almost like water. Is there anything I can do to fix this or are these fragrances not recommended for this use?
5 out of 5 stars awesome base! 05/07/2012
Reviewer: Evelyn Cole from North Olmsted, OH US
I was prepared to not be crazy about this base due to the sles BUT I have to admit it did not dry my skin or hair out and rinsed clean. Left my skin soft and hair soft and shiny. Didn't have any trouble with adding phytokeratins and panthenol and silk peptides along with fo. All in all I am amazed and very pleased with this base. It's a keeper!
4 out of 5 stars Best Base So Far 01/03/2012
Reviewer: Apryll from Reynoldsburg, OH US
I have been looking for a body wash base to add fragrance and add to my lotion line. This is the best I have found. Although most fragrance oils thin the gel out, I dispenced the base into a foamer bottle (also purchased through NG) and that worked perfectly!
5 out of 5 stars Easy to Use! 10/22/2011
Reviewer: Beth Bleykhman from Asheville, NC US
This leaves my skin feeling really soft and not tight and dry! Can't wait to make some more bath gel or even try making a shampoo with this!
5 out of 5 stars Best Bath Gel on the Market 02/11/2011
Reviewer: from New Jersey
I have tried SO many gel bases and this is the only one that I come back for. It takes fragrance beautifully. I never need crothix to thicken it no matter what scent I use. PLEASE KEEP THIS BASE!
4 out of 5 stars Love this base! 12/23/2010
Reviewer: Jennifer Snyder from Lehigh Valley, PA US
This base is wonderful! I bought a gallon and I can make about a dozen 8oz bottles of shower gel. Some of the fragrances I added did make the base a little watery, Butt Naked for example. While other fragrances I added worked great and smelled fantastic! This base works great as a shower gel or shampoo! Buy it, try it, you won't be disappointed!
5 out of 5 stars good stuff! 10/02/2010
Reviewer: Mystik Muses from Louisville, CO US
I like this base because it leaves my hair really clean, soft and smooth. It makes a great bubble bath and shower gel as well. My only complaint(if I have to have one) is that it thins out quite alot with some FO's, other than that it does make beautiful and effective shower gel.
4 out of 5 stars very nice gel 06/01/2010
Reviewer: Izabela Mroczko from Cincinnati, OH US
I really like the consistency of this gel. Unfortunately most of FOs thin the gel to almost water consistency. I used it as shower gel on a sponge, it lathers very nice and only a little is enough. Also, the FOs make the gel creamy white, which is normal think. I don;t have any other gel to compare the Ritzy gel too, but this one is great. A little bit of thickener and it's perfect!
5 out of 5 stars Great body wash base! 04/09/2010
Reviewer: Heart-n-Hand Candle Co. from Knoxville, IL US
This base is wonderful, holds color and fragrance great! Give it a try!
5 out of 5 stars just right 04/03/2010
Reviewer: SDNC from Philadelphia, PA US
i like this gel vey much, its just the right thickness. because if th FO does thins it, it wont thin as much as some of the other competitor's gel.
5 out of 5 stars Just Fantastic 03/05/2010
Reviewer: Pauly from CT US
Recently I started to make body wash for myself. I was tired of spending way too much money for the "Great" scented body washes. Well, now I can have any scent I choose and it is way cheaper than the $8-$12 you pay in the store for only 5-8 ounces. This way it only costs me $0.32 per ounce with shipping. Last month's Frangrance of the month was perfect for my favorite body wash, that a certain store no longer carries, I just used that fragrance and added 1/3 of an ounce to the 8 oz bottle, that I also purchased here, and now I have my favorite "Nature's Gardens' Scented Body Washes". I love this store!!!.
5 out of 5 stars Love it 06/25/2008
Reviewer: Stephanie Ibarra from Houston, TX US
bought the gel, because I was going to be making gift baskets... Well everyone love it,even have had a few return customers for this... the only thing I noticed was that some scents don't hold well after rinsing off, which some of my customers look for, but all in all I think this is the best base out there....
4 out of 5 stars Cold ber a bit better 07/26/2007
Reviewer: Lynda Smith from Birmingham, AL US
I ordered this and was dissapointed with the consistency. When I made a bath gel I found that the consistency wasn't thin as it had first appeared. However, I used a cheaper brand from another company and I found that it never gave my gels a slightly cloudy appearance as this one did and I used the same amount of fragrance and color in both.
5 out of 5 stars Excellent 04/13/2007
Reviewer: A viewer from MS
My customers love this bath/shower gel!
5 out of 5 stars Wonderful and soothing 01/20/2007
Reviewer: A viewer from Tampa, FL US
I LOVE this bath/shower gel base. I am in the experimental stage of a bath product company and I gave out samples of this shower gel and everyone absolutely loved it! I myself have sensitive skin (especially on my legs) and most shower gels make my skin itch and burn. My skin feels soft and not at all itchy after using this gel. THANKS!
5 out of 5 stars great product 05/14/2006
Reviewer: Franchesca Cole from tx
