A new post that will take no more than 1 minute to read but give you a HUGE difference in your adventurous making!

Have you had a lotion separate into a watery layer and an oily or waxy layer? If you have seen this, then I propose two problems that are most often the reason for calls to our Technical Support team. They are:
