Guar gum and lamesoft

Hello I have this simple shampoo formula 

Warer 60%
Aloe Vera 10%
Glycerin 5%
Panthenol 2%

DSL mild 10% (disodium laureth sulfosuccinate)
Cocoamiropropyl betaine 10%

Guar gum 1%
Citric acid

I get a nice and viscous texture but if I try to add lamesoft even at 1% my texture gets thin and clamps. You think that guar gum does not work with gums?

    Which Lamesoft are you referring to - there is more than one grade and they are all different
    TM Benz for instance is a nice pearl concentrate
    PO65 is the material that gives a 24 hour moisturising claim if you use enough

  •  Sorry you are right, Coco-Glucoside (and) Glyceryl Oleate

    PO 65 Then
  • Can you help? Is it just the nature of gums that are not compatible ?
