Shampoo/Body Wash:  This shampoo recipe is the kind of shampoo that will need to be rinsed out of your hair once it is used.  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 4 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 2 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Bath Gel:  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 6 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 4 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Bubble Bath:  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), Mica Pigment, and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 4 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye and 1/4 tsp. mica pigment mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 4 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.  The mica pigment allows your bubble bath to become more opaque.

Magic Potion Body Spray:  We have created a very neat product that we have not seen on the market yet:  A body spray that looks like gel in the bottle, but sprays onto the skin like regular body spray.  This is made possible by thickening our Imagine Base with xanthan gum.  Xanthan gum has a property called pseudoplasticity.  When the gel encounters high shear forces, such as agitation or spraying out of a bottle, the gel will thin out.  However, once the shear forces are removed, the product will gel up once again.  For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Body safe fragrance oil.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 3 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 4 ml. of body safe fragrance to the mixture and mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Icy Glitz Shampoo/Bath Gel:  This shampoo recipe is the kind of shampoo that will need to be rinsed out of your hair once it is used. The addition of menthol crystals to this shampoo base allows for a cool, fresh feeling on your scalp and body!   For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:  Imagine Base, Distilled water, Xanthan gum, Soap dye (if desired), and Crushed Menthol Crystals.  Step One:  Create your cooling, thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 60 seconds, add 1/8 teaspoon of crushed menthol crystals.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 4 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Add 3 drops of soap dye, mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes, then pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.  Xanthum gum in this recipe not only thickens the Imagine base, it also provides skin hydrating properties to the recipe.

Amazing Layered Bath Gel:  We created another product that we have never seen anywhere...Layered Bath Gel!  That's right, you can put numerous colors of bath gel in the same bottle!!!  This product provides skin hydrating, and a nice smooth glide for shaving.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 9 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.  Divide this mixture into a separate container for each color of bath gel you plan to make. Add 3 drops of soap dye of your choice to each container, mix by hand.    Allow completed mixtures to set up for about 30 minutes.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, divide 2-4 ml. of body safe fragrance amongst the containers, and mix by hand.  Pour mixtures, one by one,  into an 8 oz. bottle, layering the colors as you desire.  To create a Tye Dye look, gently agitate the 8 oz. bottle. 

Monster Snot Hand Soap for little boys: We created another product that we have never seen anywhere...Monster Snot Hand soap!  We think little boys, and grown-ups who refuse to grow up will love this stuff!   This product provides skin hydrating, and a nice smooth glide for shaving.  Step One:  Create your thickening xanthan gum slurry.  This slurry is made by warming 1/2 cup of distilled water in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Using a mixer, slowly add 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum powder to the distilled water and beat for about 5 minutes.  This slurry should look like a very very thick gel; with no clumps of xanthan gum particles.  Step Two:  Pour 1 cup of Imagine base into a container that is safe to add fragrance to, and one that you will not be using to serve food later.  Add 8 level teaspoons of your finished xanthan gum slurry to the Imagine base, and thoroughly mix by hand until the slurry combines with the Imagine base.  The xanthan gum slurry will thicken the Imagine base.   Add 3 drops of green soap dye to container, mix by hand.  Allow completed mixture to set up for about 30 minutes.  Finally, using a transfer pipette, add 2 ml. of body safe fragrance to the containers, and mix by hand.  Pour mixture into an 8 oz. bottle.

1 out of 5 stars Very disappointed :( 06/07/2014
Reviewer: A viewer from USA
I got this base to make shampoo.I followed the recipe,and am not happy with how it turned out.It is very thin(looks like really cheap body wash,but thinner) and the lather is nonexistent. NG Reply: This product is meant to be used in a foamer bottle if you want alot of foam. For rinse-free shampoo, which this product was made for hospitals around the US, it is not meant to foam alot. To make it foam alot, that would require a much higher level of surfactant, and that just would not be wise for rinse-free shampoo as it could become harsh for the scalp.

Reviewer: Jennifer Barclay from Fort Smith, AR US
The imagine base is wonderful. There are endless products to be made with it. I made shampoo and body wash from the recipes on this site. I love it! I will be ordering more.
5 out of 5 stars Very easy to use... 09/12/2013
Reviewer: Tamera Broussard from Westlake, LA US
I bought the foaming bottles and used this to make the foaming hand wash. Made several scents and even mixed a few and I also used the teal soap coloring and my family love it.
2 out of 5 stars Nothing works. 06/20/2013
Reviewer: Mandi Konesni from Toledo, OH US
Followed the recipes exactly as written for bubble bath, monster snot soap, and foaming body butter. Nothing worked. I have no idea what's wrong with it... I'm going to attempt the customer submitted recipe for bubble bath bars, and the gel perfume. Hopefully those will work, I'd hate to waste a whole gallon of this stuff. I thought I could replace quite a few gallons of bases by using this....not so. Won't be buying this again.
2 out of 5 stars Body Wash 04/19/2013
Reviewer: Michelle Marak from Chicago, IL US
Followed the instructions perfectly, however my body wash came out very watery. I tried the next batch without FO, thinking that was the culprit, but no luck. I even used the guar slurry X4 of what the recipe calls for to thicken it up, but then the bubbles/soap suds were completely gone & it doesn't seem like a body wash. Not thrilled with this so far.
