Skin Perfection's DIY Divas; Karen and Tonia, walk you through the necessary steps to prepare your work area and tools for lotion making. Always wear proper attire and maintain a clean workstation. Follow these simple steps to help you stay compliant with good manufacturing practices. Whether you are a large or small company or just making gifts for friends and family, proper sanitation is necessary.
First, put on the proper attire, a lab coat, and a hair net if necessary. Then wash your hands with soap and water. Put on disposable gloves. Now spray your work area with a disinfectant cleaner. Wipe the surface clean and let air dry. Next, sanitize the tools that you will need to make your skincare products. You will need a Pyrex glass measuring cup with a lip, spatula, funnel, hand stick blender. Take each item and spray them with a sanitizer. Let air dry.
Now you are ready to start creating your skincare formulations. Below is some additional information on the supplies that you will need.

Other items you may want to consider using:
Airless bottles are relatively new and very beneficial. Their primary purpose is to keep contaminants and bacteria out. Airless bottles use an airless system and do not use a pump with a long stem. The accumulator uses a pressure system that lifts the product to the top. Filling bottles are quick and easy with the right tools. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you fill our airless bottles fast.
Airless bottles are meant to be filled full. The top line located on the lip indicates where the pump will come in contact with the product. If the bottle is not filled up correctly, then it may not work. You could also get an air pocket, which may shift and cause the container not to dispense at different times.
Unscrew the lid and place it to the side. Place your stainless steel funnel into the neck of the bottle. Pour in your lotion. That's it. If your formula does not smoothly flow down the spout, you may need to adjust the funnel so you get airflow. You can also gently tap the bottle on a towel that is placed on a hard surface. This is an excellent trick for thicker creams.
Do you need your handmade products to last longer than a few days? Radish Root Ferment is a revolutionary all-natural preservative system or antimicrobial that can prolong the shelf-life of your skincare. Radish Root is also beneficial for those who would like to stay away from traditional synthetic preservatives due to skin sensitivities and allergies.About Skin Perfection
