Storing Homemade Yogurt Facial Mask?

I'm planning on making yogurt facial masks to sell, but I'm not really sure how to store it and or if it'll go bad after so long. All of the other ingredients that I'm using can be kept at room temperature, but the plain yogurt is throwing me off on how to go about it.

The yogurt mask will need to be refrigerated. Usually a week shelf life but if it smells bad, I'd toss it.

You can sell the facial mask mixture in a glass container.

Yogurt spoils. I would suggest it be refrigerated.

Wishing you lots of luck with your new venture! How exciting!

I suggest that you contact your local heath department or department of health and talk to them before you proceed. While you are not using a food product as food, it is a product that can spoil and could cause issues with a client if not handled properly. They can give you all the info you need to make sure you are following the law/ordinances/standards needed for such a venture.

You can find them in Google with your town name + department of health or DOH.

I would also suggest, if you haven't already, talk to your local Small Business Development Center and work with them to help you get your business off the ground.

Most of their services are free or low cost (paid by tax money). This link will get you to where you can find a local office.

Lots of good wishes to you!!

Will you be selling to local shops? If so, many of those will have refrigeration so that might be an option.

  • Different cities have different laws/restrictions for selling "anything" so be sure you are working within the restrictions.

  • Some items can be sold online but I do not believe this fits that category.
  • Yogurt cannot remain at room temperature for much more than 2 hours so you may have to find an ingredient to use instead/in-place of yogurt.
  • The US Department of Health & Human Services states you should throw out yogurt if it's been out at room for more than 2 hours.
  • Other health sites state: do not leave yogurt at room temperature for longer than two hours or one hour if the temperature is 90 degrees F or above. If left unrefrigerated longer, bacteria can start to grow.
  • I have read other opinions that say you can leave it out longer (up to 6 hours) but I would not feel safe with that figure.
  • I believe if it harmful to eat then it would probably be harmful to use on your skin.

so another option is to sell your product as is without the yogurt but advertise is as "JUST ADD YOGHURT!" That way I see you avoiding the difficulty here found
