Formulating on a budget: Equipment
If you are just starting out on making your own body products and you are trying to stick to your budget, I do not blame. Purchasing ingredients and equipment can be overwhelming. If you want to get an idea of what is important in what equipment you should purchase, I would advise you to read the article on Point of Interest's site titled Formulating on a budget: Equipment. The author has a couple of different links that you should take a look at so you can determine what you really need to buy right away.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
