Make the most of your organic beauty routine by carefully following these recommendations:

  • Always patch test your homemade product or ingredients for 48 hours before applying a larger amount to the skin, hair or face.

  • Maintain a clean environment for preparing your homemade beauty products and follow sanitization guidelines to prevent the presence of impurities, mold, and other problems. It is especially important to follow sanitization guidelines if your product contains water and won’t be used immediately.

  • Thoroughly wash hands before beginning or wear disposable gloves

  • Carefully clean utensils and containers before beginning

  1. As it’s almost impossible to know the likely expiration date of homemade skincare products, one of the best tips we can give you is to produce small amounts.

  2. You must measure your ingredients, both liquids and solids, by weight using a digital scale.

  3. Not only is it great fun to choose gorgeous packaging for your homemade skincare, but the right container can also help keep your formula safe and stable for longer.

  4. Is there water in your formulation? Is it likely that water will be introduced into your homemade skincare product during its use? Then add a preservative system!

  5. When making your own cosmetics, some ingredients such as certain carrier oils can be used at 100 per cent concentration. However, many other ingredients have strict dosage recommendations. For example, when you’re working with essential oils you should respect dermal limits.
