Make Your Own Natural Beauty Products (IW)
Do you love keeping your complexion looking fresh and healthy? Did you know that many commercial beauty products contain lots of synthetic ingredients?
In this course you will learn about natural ingredients and how to make some of the most popular skincare products at home. Learning to make your own natural products means you know exactly what you are putting on your skin.
Exfoliating scrubs, soothing face masks and nourishing body butters are just some of the cosmetics that can be handmade plus you can customise to suit your skin type and aromatic preference.
You will walk away from this course with a stash of sumptuous goodies and a helpful handbook that will give you the confidence to make the products again on your own.

Meet your teachers:
With over 20 years’ experience in the natural health and cosmetics industries, Polly and Lu love making natural and organic skincare products.
They are passionate about sharing their knowledge with like-minded people who enjoy learning new things, are ready to get involved and want to marvel at their own handmade creations.
Polly and Lu are a dynamic duo who will encourage others to explore the benefits of different ingredients and support them through the process. They understand that everyone has a different skin type and will have personal preferences for a product’s skin feel and scent profile.
Both are mums to young bubs and are advocates for using the most natural ingredients possible to maintain overall health and wellbeing.
As teachers they want to make sure every class is fun, full of laughs and loaded with useful information.
