There are many damaging chemicals in commercial hair care products since the industry is less supervised than skincare.
We will be making natural less harmful products for your hair as well as your face and body.
If you get stuck, need more information or want to post a question or comment, you’ll find a students only conversation on the bottom of every page in the course. I’ll personally answer your questions.
In this course, all natural ingredients are used to benefit and nourish your skin and hair.
You’ll be making a dry shampoo that is the same formula that we created for our wholesale accounts, then daily and weekly conditioner. You’ll also be making a hair mask that feeds you hair the vitamins it needs to feel and look healthy.
We will never use petroleum based ingredients in this class and no harsh chemicals, fillers or synthetic preservatives.
Face masks are a great way to pull out impurities from your skin and these will be customized to your preference.
Facial and body scrubs are important for removing dead skin cells from the surface of your face and body. These dead skin cells leave your skin looking dull if they are not removed.
What you'll learn
Who this course is for
Here are just a few things you'll learn
Oily or Acne Prone Face Mask
This mask works very well for cleansing your skin but does not strip the skin of moisture like so many oil control masks can.
Dry Shampoo and Body/Face Powder
This dry shampoo is a very versatile product that can add an extra day or 2 of wear-ability onto your hair style without needing to wash it. The powders absorb the oil and adds a little texture and body to your hair. This product can also be used as a face powder and a body powder.
Goji Berry Body Scrub
Goji Berries are very high in antioxidants, B vitamins and Vitamin E. This makes it a perfect addition for a body scrub. The small seeds of the Goji berries are great for exfoliation.
Meet The Teacher
I’m Rene Whitlock.
I’m the founder of Soap Making School.
We are going on to our 12th year on line and the program has grown faster than I dreamed.
Soap Making is my passion. since I began in 1997.
I’ve been teaching for a good chunk of that time, starting with friends and other Soap Makers.
I’ve been teaching larger groups for over 23 years. It’s been a blast and it has inspired me to make videos showing what I teach in my live classes. My curious nature has allowed me to push myself into experimenting with many soap making methods that I’ve not seen before.
I like to look for a more logical simplified method for making soap. If I can’t find one then I will invent one. If it works out, it becomes the new method that I use and over time it becomes the norm.
I spent a big chunk of my time during my learning process asking the question why. Why would someone want to complicate something that can be simple? We support Palm oil free soap making and sponsor orphaned Orangutans through Orangutan Foundation International
Hope to see you in the class!
