Troubleshooting This Product:
Natural products vary in viscosity from batch to batch. The normal viscosity of our body scrub at room temperature is that of a thick paste. This product is emulsified to help reduce separation and leakage. However, temperature fluctuations both in transit to you as well as in your home or storefront will affect the viscosity of this product. To adjust the product viscosity to your preference review the following handling tips:
- Product is too stiff/thick: This issue is most common in colder temperatures since UPS and USPS do not use temperature controlled vehicles. Often times, the product will become less stiff as it adjusts to room temperature. Allow product to sit overnight at room temperature before attempting any adjustments. You can adjust the viscosity of the product by adding a small amount of one of the base oils (sunflower oil, rice bran oil or jojoba oil) combined with an equal amount of Polysorbate 80. The more oil/polysorbate blend that is added, the "looser" the product will become. Do not attempt to heat the base in a microwave or on a stove top as this can render the preservative ineffective.
- Product is too runny/thin or has oil settling on top: This issue is most common in warmer temperatures since UPS and USPS do not use temperature controlled vehicles. Often times, the product will become more stiff as it adjusts to room temperature. Allow product to sit overnight at room temperature before attempting any adjustments. You can adjust the viscosity of the product by adding additional salt. We recommend using Dendritic Salt as it is highly absorbant. The more salt that is added, the "stiffer" the product will become. Do not attempt to cool in a refrigerator or freeze the base as this can render the preservative ineffective.
