After you find a reference formula, the next step you would want to take is adding more ingredients. Maybe substitute ingredients for what you have. In this post, I will tell you how to do that. This skill is a fundamental concept that you need to know how to do. This skill comes right after learning how to scale formulations, which you can learn here. (Link)
What do I need to know?
This is the last post in my DIY Cosmetics for Beginners series! I can't believe that it is ending!?!? It feels like I started it yesterday. Anyway, in this post we are going to be talking about water-based cosmetics. Most of this post is going to be a review from previous posts. This was meant to happen, as I wanted to give the beginners the skills and knowledge to follow along with the formulations that I create. I am going to include how do all the math for conversions and scaling up and down. Don't worry all you will need is a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. You may need to erase, as mistake do happen. So, time for review!
This is part five out of my eight-part series on DIY Cosmetics For Beginners. In this post we are going to be talking about preservatives, antioxidants, fragrance oils, and essential oils. This is going to be a long post. So, I recommend grabbing a notebook to write some of this down.
You are at your own risk when making anything from this blog. I am not liable for any mishaps that may occur. I do my best to include everything in the procedure so, that accident are less likely occur!
