Measuring ingredients with a digital pocket scale
DISCLAIMER:Any statements about products sold by BulkActives have not been evaluated by the FDA. Products sold by BulkActives are not intended to be used as nutritional supplements. Products sold by BulkActives are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
DIY skin care is not rocket science, but at the same time we do need to take care with measurements.
Just like using too much, or too little, yeast can ruin a loaf of bread, so can too much or too little of an ingredient ruin your product, make the product ineffective, OR even too acidic or alkaline.
For a long time we have supplied a limited 'teaspoon' measurement table, because some customers insisted on this info.
No longer, we have now removed this table, and instead will sell high quality digital pocket scales at a VERY competitive price.
The price is low because we WANT you to put away those spoons and start weighing your ingredients.
We will also edit our recipes and remove ALL references to teaspoon measurements.
Calulation for less than 100% actives.
Just take the amount of active you desire and divide it by the amount in the active to give the total amount needed.
DMAE B. = 37% active
You want 5% total of DMAE B 37% in a base.
Just remove the % signs and divide the amount wanted by the amount in the active
Then just multiply by 100
You will need to use 13.5% of DMAE B to make a 5% DMAE B in a base.
So you use 13.5% in you calculations to get 5% DMAE B.
