How To Produce Balm

HOW TO PRODUCE BALM: Balm is a general term for cream/liquid we rub to heal or soothe the skin.


The balm is a cream we use to heal or soothe our skin. One of my major reason(s) of joining NAIRAPEN is to share my Cosmetic products Production experience with young minds. To help as many as possible with Cosmetic production skills. The aim has been defeated by learning from me without practicing what you learned. Please practice, because practice makes perfect, and follow me for you to get other production skills as I drop them.


For accident-free and quality product production, adhere to these measures.

1. Make sure you are properly kitted before going into production

2. Make sure your measurements are accurate

3. Never inhale any chemicals directly into the nose

4. Don't allow children into your production hall.

5. Don't entertain play of any kind in your production hall

6. Make sure all walkways are free from object obstruction

7. Follow me for more Production tips
