Once you learn how to make your own lotion, you will never want to use anything else!
Have you ever looked at the label of a lotion bottle and felt completely overwhelmed wondering what it contained? Through this course you’ll learn the truth about ingredients and how to read the labels of moisturizers on the market. Then you’ll learn how easy it is to make all natural lotions (hint…It’s all about the magic of emulsification!), how to choose oils for different skin types and the truth about preservatives in skin care. We’ll discuss all necessary ingredients like emulsifiers, humectants, emollients, as well as standard equipment and supplies needed to get started.
You will leave with 16 ounces of lotion, created by you, and a recipe we will create specifically for you. You will also learn about some of the trusted suppliers to purchase ingredients from.
Students to bring:
- A cooking pan that will hold at least 4 cups, a whisk, a scraper spatula and a 16 oz jar (wide mouth canning work best) to take your creation home with you.
