pigments settling

How much mixing is enough? I notice that pigment seems to stick to the sidewalls of resin bottle over time...I use a (glass) stick to mix as much of this back into the bottle but it at least appears to be a variable that may be affecting some prints.

I know the resin companies want the pigments to be stable in the resin and are in fact working on this...But if there is a variable that might be affecting some prints slightly Ive got to wonder if its this?

I've just been shaking the bottle by hand (1-2 minutes, pretty vigorously if it's sat for several days). I've not been stirring.
