“I see, but even then, thank you.” [Ryouma]
“So, Ryouma-kun. What kind of experiment are you going to be doing now?” [Elize]
When the madam asked me that, I gathered my thoughts first then answered.
“Right… I know I got all of these ingredients gathered here so luxuriously like this, but I’ll only be using 7 types of oil plus another which I’ll be preparing later using the dante seeds. As for the perfumed oil, I want to go with just a few exemplary ones.” [Ryouma]
“Are you sure?” [Elize]
“Yes. Perfumed oils can get complicated with the amount and the mixing, so today I just want to get a feel for when I add mumitou and oil to the perfumed oil. It’ll be a huge help to have as many people as possible cooperating with me, so I’ll be assuming that everyone gathered here is a customer. As such, I want to know their thoughts and find out if there’s anything they would like to request after using the products.” [Ryouma]
I know I told them to work with me in my experiments, but I’m actually a beginner when it comes to beauty products.
I barely have any experience in it to count as a beginner, so unless I can find out what the customers want, I won’t be able to sell anything. This is basic.
“I want to hear their thoughts on the ingredients and why—” [Ryouma]
While I was talking, I noticed that the few young girls in the group were anxiously saying that the work seemed difficult while looking in my direction.
“—Right. Just saying something along the lines of ‘wanting a moisturizer because one’s skin dries easily’ will be enough. There’s no need to think of too many things and try to explain. So long as the maids honestly say what they want and everything is recorded on a piece of paper, that will do.” [Ryouma]
I’ll use the findings from the opinions of the experiment to decide the future development of my beauty products.
“Thank you for explaining, Takebayashi-sama. …The three people over there! If there’s something you don’t understand, stop eavesdropping and ask! Even if you don’t know if it’s okay to ask, you should still ask!” [Riviola]
“O-Our deepest apologies!” [Three Girls]
“Good grief… My apologies on behalf of these undisciplined children.” [Riviola]
“Well, it would be too tiring if they were so unreserved right from the start. I won’t tell you how to teach them, but please do keep the questions in moderation so I don’t tire out too quickly.” [Ryouma]
I will be just using 8 types of oil and three types of perfumed oil, but even just that is enough to create 24 combinations, so it will still take considerable time to make the samples and test them all. It is said that the feel of the product can change even with the size of the sugar grain, so I want to try even the finely ground grain.
It was in this way that I took my first step in making the sugar scrub a success!
…I never thought it would turn out into such a big thing, though.
Tl Note:This is not long enough, so there will be another part posted. Just big enough to make a normal release size.
