1. Measure out phase A.
2. Combine phase B to form a slurry. Add to phase A and stir through until a homogenous gel forms.
3. Heat phase A/B to 80⁰C. Combine phase C and add to phase A/B under high shear stirring and mix until all waxes are melted and a smooth, glossy, homogenous emulsion forms.
4. Allow mixture to cool under low shear stirring until <40⁰C. Add phase D and stir through under low shear until homogenous.
5. Allow to cool <25⁰C. Check/adjust final pH to 5.5 - 6. Full viscosity will be achieved the next day; do not evaluate on the day you make it. Cover and allow to set overnight; then give a final stir the next day before packing off.
