Make Your Own Holistic Skincare Products

Do you read the contents on your favourite skincare product and wonder what they all are, especially the long chemical names? Do you wonder if they do your body any harm? Do you object to paying ‘big companies big money’ for products that only cost them pennies? Have you considered making your own products and then done nothing more because you ‘don’t have the time’, or ‘don’t know how’?

If the answer to any of the above is ‘yes’ then this course is designed for you; you will learn the basics of making products, what all the words mean, and the ingredients you need to design your own personalised skincare. At the end of this course, you will have all the information you need to design and produce hand made, with natural ingredients, personalised, beautifully packaged products, tailored to your needs or those of your clients.
