10:00 am - 12:30 pm
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, 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.
It is fun and interesting to learn about the ingredients, how they work together, and to have a product that is just right for you. You will be making product that is the same quality they are selling a few ounces in the mall for over $80 – This will help you learn to evaluate the quality of ingredients in store bought lotions and soaps as well.
Instruction and all materials. You’ll leave with 16 ounces of lotion created by you, and a recipe the instructor will help you design, again just for you. You will also get a list of some of the suppliers from which you can purchase ingredients.
You should bring…
A cooking pan that will hold at least 4 cups, a whisk and a scraper spatula. These items will all have the ingredients for lotion, so please don’t bring your favorite food-cooking equipment!
