• As far as possible, avoid the usage of metallic based utensils while preparing cosmetics. Enamel or Pyrex bowls are a safe bet.
• Wooden spatulas are recommended.
• Do not use direct flame to heat oils and waxes. Employ the double boiling method to melt oils and waxes.
• Mix ingredients well while preparing creams. Always beat until the mixture is cool.
• Do not use perfumes in beauty preparations unless absolutely necessary. Certain skin types do not respond favorably to perfumes.
• Ideally, make what yogi require for immediate use. If you have a wee bit more, store it in the refrigerator and use it
• Avoid large-scale production of recipes.
• Avoid the usage of preservatives.
However, if you insist on a longer shelf life for your cosmetics.
Use Nipagin-M. Seven to eight drops of Nipagin-M may be stirred into the water contents of your beauty recipe, while heating.
• Use clean glass jars to store preparation.
• Butter paper may be used on the mouth of the jar before screwing on the cover.
• Record the ingredients and the date of purchase in your beauty diary
• Review and dump all old stock of ingredients.
• Label jars with the name of the preparation and the date you concocted it.
