Recipe: Hydrate & Protect Primer

by | published

This all-natural, silicone-free recipe is a lightweight, multitasking primer perfect for dry to normal skin!

Mushroom extracts keep the skin cool and calm while our all-natural rainforest plum gel locks in moisture and smooths skin to keep it nourished and hydrated all day. 

Primers without silicones are a sought after product because they help keep dry skin hydrated without clogging pores. 

The materials to make 30, 1.7oz primers will cost less than $250 and we suggest a retail price of at least $20 ($600 total sales!).
