When we send our batches off for micro testing prior to release, they actually challenge the preservative. It's called enrichment testing, where they introduce bacteria to see if it grows. That said, if you are adding fragrance, extracts, etc at less than 10% you will be fine. If you are adding clays, or other types of material, you want to make certain they are clean and/or irradiated to kill any bacteria before adding. If you are uncertain then it cannot hurt to add more preservative, especially to a product in a jar where fingers are dipping in multiple times.
Adding Oils: You can easily mix a variety of oils such as Coconut, Jojoba, Avocado, Hemp, Argan and more in to our Hydra-M Advanced Mineral Face Mask. Just add anywhere from 0.1% up to 10%; just remember, the more oil you add the greasier and runnier your mask will become. Adding a standard of 1% oils will minimally affect the consistency while still providing added benefits to the skin.
Adding Clays: This base already contains a high percentage of Kaolin Clay but we understand that you may choose to make your product unique by adding more. Add anywhere from 1% up to 20% of additional clays such as Bentonite Clay, Rose Clay, Activated Charcoal or Green Clay; just remember, the more clay you add, the harder and drier your mask will become. Always make a small sample first and make sure you record exact percentages of your additions so you can easily duplicate your formula once you achieve the consistency you like.
Adding Extracts: We recommend adding liquid botanical extracts rather than powder to prevent clumping. You can add from 0.1% to 5%, keeping in mind that adding liquid ingredients to the base will ultimately make your final product more liquid.
The possibilities with our Hydra-M Advanced Mineral Face Mask are endless with the addition of a multitude of beneficial additions, so don’t be afraid to experiment with it. Again, when experimenting with different additives and combinations, always work in small sample batches. Should your mask become too liquid, you can add more clay to thicken and dry it out. Alternatively, if you add too much additional clay and your mask becomes too dry, you can add liquid additives and/or oils or extracts to turn it a little more liquid. You can mix the base and the additives in a bowl using a spatula or in a kitchen mixer. Always remember to start on slow speed.

What should I sell it for?As with any other products this depends on your packaging and marketing savvy. This product is comparable to high end salon quality products which sell for hundreds of dollars per gallon. It all depends on what you add to it and how you market it. On the lower end we have seen products like this sell for $16.00 for an 8oz jar, that's $2.00 an ounce. On the higher end, take a look at products like Skinceuticals. Their similar product is Kaolin based with added Bentonite Clay and it sells for $123.00 for 8 ounces that's $15.00 an ounce.
