Course Description

This course is for anyone who is tired of paying a fortune for skincare products that are not necessarily getting the results promised by marketeers. It is also for people worried about the suspect preservatives that go into your beauty products.

If you create your own skincare, not only can you trust the ingredients that go into it, but you can save a lot money and you get to personally customise products to suit your own skin.

In this course we will learn how to make:

  • A beautiful rich cleanser that is also a gentle make up remover.
  • Some lovely refreshing toner that cleans and opens up your pores.
  • A moisturiser that can be adapted to suit your preference and skin needs.

    We will be using lots of butters and waxes and floral waters all teamed together some beautiful smelling essential oils. I buy my ingredients online and have saved so much money when compared with the products I used to buy straight from the shelf. You don't need a lot of equipment, the only new thing I have bought in terms of equipment is a set of digital scales that cost me £8, the rest is all are pots, dishes and utensils that I already had in the cupboard.
  • The course consists of video modules. Also included are PDFs for your shopping list, recipes and references to books and websites I use.

    Although I have recipes to follow, I encourage students to adjust recipes to suit your own skin needs and tastes. For example, I love lavender but I appreciate not everyone does, therefore I have made alternative suggestions. Once you have completed this course, you will have a good foundation to personalise your skincare routine to suit you.

    Learning about natural skincare for me, led me to be generally more healthy. I can honestly say I am much more in tune with my body holistically and what it needs when I'm feeling low. I really hope others can benefit in this way too.

    You could complete this course in a day or spread the time it takes you to feel comfortable in making each product.

    What are the requirements?

    • No prior knowledge needed, suited for absolute newbies to homemade skincare. If you do know a bit about aromatherapy then you will already know scents and the different properties of essential oils you want to use for your skincare, therefore can apply this knowledge from the beginning of the course. But is by no means essential!

    What am I going to get from this course?

    • By the end of this course you know what it takes to make and use your own inexpensive, natural, 3 step skincare routine.
    • You will also understand how to make skincare to suit your preference.

    What is the target audience?

    • Anyone who has an interest

    Instructor Biography

    Rochelle Maas, Natural Skincare Enthusiast

    I first became interested in making my own skincare in 2008 after becoming disillusioned by the whole cosmetic industry. I didn't feel the expensive products I was buying were at all living up to what was promised on the bottle. I was also reading more and more about harmful chemicals and preservatives that are included in various products and it left me feeling confused about what I was putting on my skin.

    I then went onto study aromatherapy and homemade natural skincare and found it was not only liberating knowing exactly what was in my skincare, but I was also saving a lot of money and most importantly it was working for my skin!

    Being so passionate about my new found hobby and wanting to take it further, I studied and experimented more. I gave much thought about producing my own skincare line to sell, but kept coming back to the same conclusion.That was the reason making your own skincare with these amazing natural ingredients is so good is that they don't have preservatives in them, therefore are fresh and don't have a particularly long shelf life. I would have had to have added preservatives of some sort in order to make them viable to sell. Which in my opinion, beats the point!

    Therefore I decided I would make it my mission to save anyone in the same boat as I was in many years ago from; the chemicals on their skin, the money from their pockets and the disatisfaction of buying beauty products off the shelf that don't work.

    Tailoring your own skincare to suit yourself is so satisfying, I hope to share my passion with others too.
