Description

Many people want better control of what goes on and into their bodies. Vegans have a tougher task of finding suitable products because many commercial ones are tested on animals. This course empowers you to make some simple cosmetics using ingredients that are readily available in grocery stores or drug stores. We have videos and a lot of supplemental materials that I hope you peruse. The course should not take very long to complete as it's meant to build beginner confidence before the next series of videos comes out.

Who is the target audience?
  • Crafty people
  • Vegans wanting to making sure their cosmetics are cruelty free
  • People concerned about what's in their cosmetics

Chemist

I have been making cosmetics since 2005 to help my sister and me deal with the dry Alberta climate. Since then I have sold some of my creations in my business called Lotions and Potions. My university degree in chemistry, which helps a lot when I try to formulate new products. My live classes have been covered in the Edmonton Journal and on local tv.
