I began making my own skincare products over 24 years ago and have never looked back. Over those years I have discovered what works and what doesn’t when it comes to making a good stable lotions and creams.
There are parts of a good recipe you can change and parts that need to be left alone.
We will work with thickeners, emulsifiers, emollients, preservatives, hydrosols and special ingredients that can make your formula extra unique.
This course introduces you to the wonderful world of skin care and you’ll be able to make both lotions and creams to suit your personal needs.
Whether it’s for yourself, or a special person including the babies in your life, you will never need to buy another chemical filled “natural”cream or lotion again.
You will know every ingredient that is going into your creation and you will know why it is in there.
A good lotion can change your skin for the better.
All the ingredients we use are natural and have a specific purpose for your lotion!
Lip balm made without petroleum ingredients are difficult to find. You will be making your very own with natural ingredients. You can choose from either vegan wax or beeswax.
The foot balm is extra soothing and skin softening. scrub, you can choose essential oils that are perfect for fighting fungus and bacteria.
