To add to the list of what you need..is basic math skills. To interpret a formulation or calculate your end products have cost you to make you will find the basic calculations on the Q & A page.
Q.S. – quantity sufficient – this is the amount applicable to how much you want to use.
Using preservatives – When you are making products for reselling you will more than likely have to use a preservative. We supply 3 different preservatives: Kemaben, Euxyl and potassium sorbate. You will find the usage amounts when you view the product under speciality chemicals. I dont give recommendations as you need to make the decision once you have read the information you require on the product.
Important : BEFORE MAKING BIG BATCHES OF PRODUCTS ALWAYS MAKE SMALL TEST BATCHES FIRST. THE RECIPES AND FORMULATIONS ARE GUIDELINES. RESULTS CAN VARY WITH ADDITIVES, SKILL LEVEL, CLIMATE, INCORRECT MEASURING.
