Scaling up my gel/wax formula
I have a working formula for my hair gel/wax product which I am very happy with. In fact, I’ve had nothing but fantastic hair days while testing it 🙂
The LOI for my 4 OZ product is:
- Mineral oil
Now that I’ve acquired an overhead stirrer/mixer, I am ready to scale up and produce larger batches in order to share product samples. Can anyone share any insight into scaling up and where I might have issues? Is there a rule for scaling back certain ingredients as increase the number of batches in one cook? I’m nervous about that because I don’t want to waste ingredients.
I already know that I will have to be quick with my hot pour, as I need to fill multiple containers before it cools and is no longer fluid. I almost wonder if there is a beaker with a spigot at the bottom which would allow me to pour while it’s still on a hot plate at pouring temperature.
thanks for any advice,
