PDF Includes: Five Formulas, FAQ & Troubleshooting section, Ingredient & Tweaking Information section and an Ingredient Suppliers section.
Difficulty: Before purchasing this pdf you should have basic knowledge of the ingredients required. You should be familiar with good manufacturing practices and understand how to read a formula and follow basic formulating processes. You should be able to work with grams and percentages and have your own basic knowledge of preservatives. While this PDF is simple to follow, it doesn’t come with instructional photographs or videos as I felt they were unnecessary. If you can’t follow a formula without visual aids, you may not want to purchase this PDF.

It’s difficult for me to give you a solid idea of how much these formulas will cost you to make as the price of raw materials varies so much between suppliers and countries and also whether you buy small or in bulk. I can, however give you a rough idea. If you were to purchase your ingredients in Australia in small amounts (1kg – 5kg size) then the ingredient cost of the formulas above will be roughly $5.50 to $7.00 aud per kilogram. Buy in bulk and make in large batches and the overall cost of your product will reduce.
Note: the above price estimates are for raw material cost alone. They don’t take into account labour or packaging costs. You will need to work those out yourself. I sell a handy pricing sheet if you don’t know where to begin pricing your products!
