    Perry,
    “How to Create a Starting Formula” was another good video. I found it very interesting. I have used the tips such as the ones found in your video and especially your white paper. I’ve duplicated many off the shelf products like lip balms, and topical analgesics, for my employer. Thanks again!

    Looking forward to a video on formulating creams since they seem to be the more difficult to produce consistently.
    Thanks again!

      Thanks! We don’t have a cream formula video planned at the moment but we do teach how to create cream formulas in our course.

    Thanks Perry for the info….I have been doing exactly what your video’s suggest, creating a spreadsheet of a LOI and researching percentages of the ingredients that are typically used in formulas. I also contact raw material ingredient companies to get assistance on what percentage they would recommend ingredients in. It’s great to get close to a benchmark product! Thanks again…..

    I am interested in your course. However my products are naturally derived. Would it be better for me to take your natural cosmetic formulating course, or do I need to take this course first either way? I look forward to your answer and when the appropriate course for me will be available.

    Questions re LOI: For ingredients that are 1% or less, may I list them in any order I wish? If I have two or more ingredients at the same %, may I line them up in any order I think best?
    Thank you for your time and effort.

    I need to add a preservative to my formulation. How do I know if it will be compatible with the rest of my ingredients ?

    Q, Do you heat the water and oil based material separately and mix together at 70 degrees or heat it all in the water until melted? Thanks in advance.
