TOPICS: Product Development

I love finding new suppliers. I also love it when my fave suppliers add little extras to my order - like a sample of oil or butter, or, in this case, an airless container.
Above: some new airless containers filled with a formula I am tweaking.
The contents? My latest batch of cucumber day & night serum. This batch is with a new emulsifier that is - so far - both easy and fun to work with.
But we're going to look at the packaging today. And I'm really interested in your input.

Getting to know raw ingredients is always a pleasure, and the star butter in this product has been no exception. After liking everything kpangnan butter had to offer in a lotion bar, I decided to do a simple whipped body butter – just to test this butter out in a different type of formula.
The texture turned out so light, creamy, and non-greasy that I have been using this buttery-smooth frappé everywhere from face to feet since the first batch. What started out as an ingredient test grew into a new product.
Suddenly, a scent was being composed, labels were being designed and a few testers were being contacted.
I didn't plan this product. It really just happened.

Contrary to dermabrasion (which requires a professional dermatologist), microdermabrasion literally 'skims the surface' and can be done either by you or by a professional. It can even be done effectively with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen cupboard.
Today, we're going to do our own microdermabrasion. The best part? It's hardly going to cost a thing! The worst part? It comes with a few precautionary warnings.

If you've been reading this blog a while, you know I am on a never-ending, die-hard quest for quality, classy-looking cosmetics and make-up containers of all kinds.
Considering the laughably low order-placing capabilities LisaLise has, my requirements are ridiculously lofty.
There is logic behind the madness – even though perfection may not be attained, there's always the chance of getting pretty darn close.
