    Hey guys,

    I thought I would ask you how do you store leftover/excess of material?
    Let’s say you’ve made a cream, filled all the jars and have some extra product, but not the official jar. Do you have something special? Like airless container or … 

    Just thought it would be good to get some knowledge/ideas from you :)

    We aim to not have excess product from production runs. We calculate our BMRs very carefully, ensuring that the product containers have been calibrated for volume.
    In cases where we have ‘extras” which is usually <10, our customers are usually happy to purchase these.

    We always stored excess product in glass containers.
