Honestly, so many of the DIY lotion recipes found on blogs and YouTube just aren't great. I want to ensure you'll never waste your time, and good ingredients, making a finished product that doesn't feel good on your skin.
Or, worse, make a lotion that is UNSAFE, and a prime environment for mold and bacterial growth, because the recipe you followed was not formulated correctly.
As an esthetician trained in product formulation, I've spent years perfecting my crafting techniques and formulas. And, since I've taught handmade skin care crafting for the last 20+ years, I know exactly where beginning crafters are most likely to get tripped up.
My simple crafting methods and skin-nourishing recipes were born out of these years of experience.
I will get you started off right, making lotion that is SAFE and incredibly GOOD for your skin (and feels good too!)
Hi, friend! I'm Angela Palmer, esthetician and DIY skin care educator. Since 2001, I've taught thousands of women, just like you, how to craft their own farm-fresh, simple, wholesome handmade skin care. I can't wait for you to join us.
I'm super excited to show you how to make your own moisturizing, fast absorbing, better-than-store-bought body lotion. You'll be thrilled at the amazing, professional quality body lotion that you can easily create in your own kitchen. So, enroll now and I'll see you inside the course!
By enrolling in the course, you get:
This course is held completely online and digitally. Nothing will be shipped.
Not at all. This course is completely online and self-paced. You can sign in at any time, and work through the lessons as quickly or slowly as you like. There are no due dates, and no homework… just the fun stuff!
While the vast majority of the ingredients we will be working with in this course are all natural, the finished lotions are not 100% natural strictly speaking. To get an effective, non-greasy, pro-quality product we utilize emulsifying wax. While this ingredient is naturally derived, and made from vegetable sources, it is not considered 100% natural.
We also use a synthetic, paraben-free, preservative at a very low percent (under 0.5%). This is vital to ensure a SAFE product that won't grow mold or bacteria. Natural preservatives are very fussy to work with, especially for beginning crafters. Because I want you to be successful as a beginning crafter, we will not be discussing all-natural preservative options in this course. (All-natural preservation options would be an entire course itself--maybe a subject for an upcoming course. 😉)
Even with these synthetic ingredients, your finished lotion will be approximately 95% natural. Much better than store-bought lotions!
Once you enroll, you will have lifetime access to the course. Plus, any time I update the course in the future, you’ll get access to that too.
We have 2 ways to connect! Within each module throughout the course is an 'Ask Angela' section where you can privately post questions or ask for help. Your questions come directly to me, and I'll personally answer via email.
