How I Know How Much Flavor to Use

Knowing how much flavor to put into the lip balm is really important and there's a method to it.

Anytime you buy an ingredient that can be used for making cosmetics, it comes with usage guidelines that tell you the maximum amount that's safe to use. So knowing and respecting that limit for flavors is the first step, but there's a bit more to it than that. Just because a certain amount is safe to use doesn't mean we need to put that much in. I like to test it and get a feel for how potent a flavor is, and from there, I lower the percentage that we use.

Actually, that's a fun fact! Our recipes are all based on percentages, and we weigh everything out in grams as opposed to measuring things out in cups and teaspoons.
