HELP with toothpaste manufacturing

I work in a small laboratory and I am developing new toothpaste formulation. For this I need a vacuum mixing equipment, which I don't have. Anyone have any idea how to do it? with laboratory implements? 
thankyou so much!

    unless you want toothpaste like blancmange, a vacuum mixer is essential

  • I ask if we can think of any "homemade" way of doing it on a small scale, since I have low economic resources and time.

    Vaccum it afterwards... works with creams might work with toothpaste (given enough time). Probably something like THAT???

    @Pharma believe me, it doesn't - once air is in toothpaste, it stays there forever

  • Anyone knows how much vacuum psi is required in the mixer?
