If you require a specific recipe or instructions to make a moisturiser or cream from scratch, we recommend purchasing a make your own Luxury Moisturiser from Scratch Kit instead of the starter pack.
We recommend starting with the included preservative as it is versatile and easy to use (and Paraben free). However, there is an option to Upgrade to Geogard Ultra (plus pH strips & Citric Acid). Please bear in mind that some experience is required if you wish to use a natural preservative system, which includes controlling the pH with Citric Acid (This is explained in the book or info flier included with the product).
There are several Upgrade Options that you can select below:
Upgrade 1: Add a Thermometer - essential for making your own moisturisers and lotions
Upgrade 2: Add a Starter Pack Of Cosmetic Containers and Tubes and Thermometer
Upgrade 3: Switch preservative to Nipaguard SCE, Citric Acid and pH Strips
Upgrade 4: Add Making Your Own Moisturisers Book
This pack does not contain formulas or recipes, ingredients only.
