What you'll learn in this skin care class:

Come deepen your knowledge of healing plants used in powerful skincare products. Learn how to infuse herbs and wildcrafted plants to incorporate into skincare products. You'll receive a valuable class handout, recipes that are made in class, and sage advice from indie beauty cosmetic formulator, Marla Bosworth. 

Students will learn to customize their own herbal skincare products. We will be using natural ingredients including botanicals, organic butters, plant oils and essential oils. 

Want to get started selling bath and body products or looking for new products to add to an existing line? These are some of the most high-margin, popular and loved products by our customers!

This class is taught by Marla Bosworth of Back Porch Soap Company. She will share from her 22 years of formulating plant-based skincare products. You'll learn the essentials of formulating products made in class as well as the healing properties of plant carrier oils, herbs and wildcrafted botanicals. Students will learn how to ethically and sustainably harvest wildcrafted botanicals and where to purchase.

These healing body treatments are wonderful products for personal use, gifts or to sell. You'll take home a full-size of all three products made in class and recipes to easily make more at home. 

This is also a great class for massage therapists, spa owners, bath and body company owners, and anyone who wants to make incredibly good-for-your-body products. No prior experience necessary.

We will cover the essentials of formulating the products made in class as well as the healing properties of plant oils, herbs and other botanicals. As a class we'll make a batch of luscious body butters - whipped up nice and light! Body butters are wonderful for massages and for dry skin. They are made differently than creams and lotions and do not contain water, instead only skin-loving butters and nutrient-rich plant oils. You'll love the price markup on these products if you make natural skincare to sell. If you don't have a business, you'll love the money saving benefit of making your own bodycare products.

We will discuss the best packaging options for each product we make this evening as well as how to properly label your indie beauty products.

Next, we'll make a batch of body balms as we work with healing, infused herbs.

This is a hands-on class. If you have an existing bath and body business, you'll love how these products boast great markups. You can cross-sell these with the rest of your line to your customers.

We'll be making two of Marla's bestselling products and students will take home the following:

Organic Whipped Herbal Body Butter
Organic Herbal Body Balm

Reviewed by Anonymous on 7/30/2019
Very knowledgeable. Teacher is experienced and has a lot of info to share. Class was a lil disorganized and I wish I did more hands on things that involved working with my hands instead of watching. Other than that, I loved the products I created and use them at home.
