Ready to take an in-depth exploration into natural skincare? Learn how to create your own body creams and lotions in this hands-on workshop with Marla Bosworth.

Students will explore a wide range of ingredients to incorporate into their own best-selling, signature products or to simply make for themselves and others. This workshop is also intended for students who are already making creams and lotions and are struggling with creating a formula that works for them.

In this easy-to-follow class, Marla will show students how to tailor skincare products to their concerns as well as those concerns of customers and clients using clean, cruelty-free ingredients. Are your creams and lotions too greasy, not absorbing into the skin? Unsure which preservatives to use and how much? Struggling with the viscosity (thickness or thinness) of your formula and unsure how to tweak it to your liking? Come get all your questions answered and start making creams and lotions like a pro!

This class is perfect for beginners, indie beauty entrepreneurs, aromatherapists, herbalists, and anyone wanting to make moisturizers. You will make an 8-ounce body cream and an 8-ounce body lotion using essential oils. Marla will discuss common skincare concerns and pinpoint ingredients that address those needs.

When class is done, you will have two clean skincare products made by you and all the information you need to keep making more.
