Body Cream Production - A Business Idea

Making body cream - a business idea
I don't think there is anybody who does not use body cream at any point in time or the other. If at all there is any, then there are minority. What I'm trying to drive at is that there is huge market for anyone who cares to venture into the production of body cream, in his journey to attain financial freedom through establishing his/her business. If you long to have additional sources of income, then I suggest this business is worth your consideration.

Body Cream Production Process

The oil emulsifiers and other oil soluble components are mixed and heated in a covered container to 75 degrees centigrade. The water soluble components like alkaline and preservatives are mixed with required quantity of water and heated in a covered container to 75 degrees also. The oil soluble components are labeled A while the water soluble components are labeled B. Both components should be maintained at 75 degrees. Component B is slowly added to component A.

Observe that the rate of addition and the air entrapment is properly done because the dispersed phase is critically important in the efficiency of emulsification. In order to avoid the entrapment of air, cooling should be done gradually and with continuous stirring to ensure homogeneity. After cooling to between 30 - 40 degrees, the solution will be homogenized to form cream.

Economic Viability of Body Cream Production

Owing to the effect of weather on our skin and innate desire of  human to remain beautiful and presentable, there is a very strong desire to take care of the skin through the use of cosmetics, especially women. Various forms of cosmetics are a must for every home. Cosmetic is daily or hourly consumable. This business venture could be embarked on with about thirty thousand naira (N50,000 at the time of writing this article). The return on investment could be about 100% annually.

Target Market

The best way to market your product as a starteer is to go for house to house marketing. Also word of mouth advertising is very powerful. Don't be shy to market your product anywhere at anytime. You can go to students hostels/dormitory, barracks, supermarkets and stores, cosmetic shops, salons, etc. Just market your good anywhere you deem it fit.
