Ingredients To Die For has had many requests, over the last few months, for ways to make it easier to incorporate new ingredients and to change the batch size of your formulas. We are happy to bring you several "CALCULATORS" that will make the transition from batch sizes as easy as typing in your information.

 

We hope that you will enjoy our new "CALCULATORS" which will make the move from small test batch size, to the larger trial size batch, to the production size batch seem effortless. All you need to do is enter your information into the "CALCULATORS" and let them do the work, giving you consistent results when you have to change your batch size to meet a changing need in production.

 

The ? INGREDIENT PERCENTAGE CALCULATOR? will determine the exact amounts that you'll need of each of your ingredients, based on your batch size. You'll no longer have to guess how much of an ingredient you need to order to make your product. Simple and easy to use. Just enter your ingredients and the percentages, click the "CALCULATE" button, and it will tell you exactly what you need. You'll no longer have to do the math for every formula. Just type in your information and let the calculator take care of it for you. The ? INGREDIENT PERCENTAGE CALCULATOR? can serve two purposes. You can also use this 'CALCULATOR? to determine what percentage each fragrance / essential oil is in your fragrance composition. To do this just enter each oil by drop, or ml., whichever you used when creating your blend and don't enter anything else. Enter 100 into the ?amount? box and click on the "CALCULATE" button. Let's say that you used 32 drops of Lavender, 50 drops of Grapefruit and 18 drops of Frankincense, the ?CALCULATOR? will tell you that your fragrance composition is 50.0% Grapefruit, 32.0% Lavender and 18.0% Frankincense. This will work even if you're suing 100 different essential oils to make up your blend. Then you can pre-make your fragrance and add it to your formula as one ingredient, for ease of formulation and consistency throughout production.

 

The "PERCENTAGE CONVERSION" will determine what the exact percentages are for those formulas that are in amounts only. You will need to convert those amounts to percentages if you want to, easily, change your batch sizes. It will also make it easier for you to make modifications to your formulas when you know what the percentages are for each ingredient. This "CALCULATOR" will not handle all of the possible types of measures that you may be using if you are using a variety of types within the same formula so you will need to use the appropriate "CALCULATOR" to first convert everything, in your formula, to the same type of measurement. Then, once you have calculated the actual percentages you can then use the "INGREDIENT PERCENTAGE CALCULATOR" to determine what you'll need to make your batch.

 

The ?FRAGRANCE ADDITION VOLUME CALCULATOR? will determine the amount of fragrance needed when you add by volume. You can tell it what percentage you want for your formula and it will give you the number of mills or drops to add to you product.

 

As always, we will continue to make improvements, and add additional calculator's as we get feedback from our customers. If there's something that you'd like to see it do, or something it does that annoys you, let us know and we'll add it, or take it away, if we can.
