    Posted by Anonymous on April 6, 2016 at 8:38 am


    I am interested in creating a body scrub that with exfoliate as well as moisturize. 
    My end goal is to create a product to launch through a start up company in South Africa. 
    I would like help with the formulation as well as some manufacturing process tips in the beginning. The plan being, to outsource the manufacturing ASAP (once financially viable)
    But for testing and sampling I hope to create the product myself. - With your help that is.
    Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from someone soon :)
    I’m sure I’ve left out some pertinent points please feel free to ask.
    Also, feel free to contact me via email.
    Many thanks for your time,

    And if you are an individual the bad news is that you can’t have an account there. It has to be a company/firm account.

    @Perry, didn’t we have an arrangement with UL Prospector to give all our forum members access?

    @Bobzchemist - Yes. If you use “Chemists Corner” as your employer, they should approve you without a website.

    Note: you can’t get samples sent to a home address.

    They won’t register with a personal id, my current id is my company’s and consequently I am restricted to much of the site. Occupational hazard!!!!
