I don't know the exact composition of a raw material

Many manufacturers and suppliers of raw materials are concerned about disclosing the exact percentage of each of the ingredients used in their formulation. Many provide a minimum and maximum percentage range, which you will usually find in the Certificate of Analysis (CoA) or section 3 of the Safety Data Sheet (SDS). Ask your supplier if you can sign an non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and be provided with the exact composition of each raw material.

For raw materials which contain more than one ingredient, you will need to enter the function each of the ingredients performs in the raw material composition. Again, check the raw material CoA or specification, or ask your supplier. For single ingredient raw materials, you enter the function within your formula composition rather than in the raw material composition.

To enter a range of percentage concentration for each ingredient in your raw material, enter the values in the min. % and max. % fields.

To enter exact percentages, enter the same value in both the min. % and max. % fields.
