  • Beginner’s Question About Home Mixer Equipment

    Posted by katerinak on May 25, 2020 at 1:57 am

    Hi all!

    I’m looking to get started making small batches of skincare (just for personal use at this stage) at home and have been hunting around for equipment!

    I’ve read in a few places that stick/immersion blenders aren’t recommended as they introduce too much air into the product (especially in small batches).

    This might be very silly but would it be possible to use a milkshake maker in place of an overhead cosmetic mixer? Stirrer head pictured.

    If not what else can you guys recommend for small batches of 30-100g?

    Many thanks!
