A question for labgirl or anyone else who can help me

Hi,

I'm studying to be a laboratorist and as an assignment we have to pick a product e.g. a cleanser and make it from scratch.

So I've decided to make cetaphil and was wondering if anyone has an idea on how this product could be made?

Ingredients :

aqua, cetyl alcohol, Propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, stearyl alcohol, methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben.

If you can help me please reply ! Thanks in advance!

I picked cetaphil because it has the fewest ingredients and it seemed like it would be an easy one ? But i have no idea where to start ?
