Have you always wanted to create your own skincare and/or cosmetic line? It’s not as easy as you think. First, you have to pour in thousands of dollars to a contract manufacturer that can make small volume for you. If you want a couple of products in your line, you’ll have to invest more money. And you must learn a couple of things regarding the chemicals and ingredients that go into your formula. You could always rely on a base formula and tweak it to your liking, but where’s the innovation in that? Sounds like too much trouble? Well, now you can experiment and work with your own cosmetic lab in your own home at a fraction of the cost!
Rowenta Naturalis just announced the new release of a DIY appliance that enables consumers to create their own balm, cream, and basically an entire skincare line. First obvious problem is the amount of money you would need to buy the raw materials for your brew. However, in smaller scale, those shouldn’t cost too much and a lot are super cheap (looking at you shea butter). For EUR 199.99 (roughly $245 USD), you can mix and start creating your own skincare line to sell (probably on Etsy and/or local Farmers’ Markets at first, and then the world!!!!) This is really exciting because it’s like a home chemistry set, except I won’t be blowing things up and making a big mess out of my kitchen. Now I don’t need to ruin any more microwaves and I can keep the kitchen strictly for cooking food. I bet all you professional make-up artists and DIYers are dying to get one of these. If and when I get mine, I’ll definitely post some creations here!
