About the Course

Mild, Natural, Organic, Sulfate-free, Silicone-free Haircare

Study anytime, anywhere, at your own pace, and grow your own successful business!

Learn to make mild natural organic haircare products, including various types of shampoo, conditioner, and hair serum for any hair type (straight, wavy, thick, fine, curly, coily, textured) the SAFE and CORRECT way with this online homestudy course.

This online diploma does not have a venue/location because it is conducted over the Internet. As long as you have Internet access you can do the course on your computer, tablet or phone from anywhere in the world at your own pace.

Why we created this course :
The increasing consumer demand for natural and organic personal care products has changed the dynamic of the cosmetic industry. Companies are now forced to change their formulations to be naturally compliant, and numerous brands with natural or organic claims are surfacing every day.

Unfortunately research and development has not yet caught up with the growing demand and the Internet is now flooded with unreliable tips, recipes, and courses that do not offer sound and practical information on how to formulate a stable natural product. This trend is even more prevalent in natural haircare formulation due to the highly complex nature and chemistry of surfactants.

This course is for you if :
1. You want to understand how to PROFESSIONALLY formulate mild, natural, organic, sulfate and silicone-free hair products for different hair types including straight, wavy, curly, coily, textured, thick, and fine.
2. You have a basic knowledge on formulation and making products.
3. You want to study anytime, anywhere, at your own pace.
4. You want to understand what "natural" and "organic" means in haircare formulation.
5. You want to know how to make a stable formula with high performing ingredients and effective natural preservatives.

Why learn with us :
1. This course is the result of years of experience and knowledge from key expert hair formulation chemists.
2. Our experts tested hundreds of ingredients and selected for this course, only the top performing.
3. We tested these ingredients in scientific formulas and compared their performance against their synthetic alternatives.
4. We interviewed all major ingredient manufacturers like BASF, Dow Corning, Evonik. Stepan, etc to get the most up to date information in the market.
5. We also did several trial runs of this course offline to gather feedback from participants and offer you the best organic haircare formulation diploma in the market.
6. Unlike some course providers we are not affiliated with a certain ingredient supplier and thus have an unbiased view of ingredients and have only picked those which perform the best and are easy to use.
7. This course will arm you with the practical knowledge to make a full range of mild, stable, high-functioning, truly natural and organic haircare line. We are the only course provider that will enable you to tailor the mildness of your product.
8. Support from discussion group of over 13,000 members : as we are co-admins of a formulation discussion group which has over 13,000 members you will not only have our expert haircare chemist's support but that of other highly experienced and knowledgeable chemists and formulators and in addition, microbiologists.

I went in wondering if I would learn anything but I surprised myself.. I learned so much! And I took home three natural products that I created in class. Christine is a wonderful instructor and I am looking forward to level 2!

Christine is a very detailed and organised instructor. Her explanations are easy to understand and she is very knowledgeable and equipped to answer different questions. The best part of her class was that everyone got to make something. Fabulous class, love all the recipes, and would definitely recommend to others!

Learned loads - really great class. Now feeling confident I can make a decent shampoo and conditioner for my difficult hair. Price was a bargain and location was ideal for me - right by Angel tube.

I am hooked on making my own shampoo and conditioner now! I have always wanted to try to do them myself and the course provided a lot of useful information plus tips and tricks on how to customize the recipes to fit different types of hair. The trainers were very knowledgeable and helpful.

- - #6905

I wanted to try making my own natural shampoo and conditioner to tame my hair and I learned so much about my hair. And it was so much fun making everything myself and I'm still using the products at home. The instructors know lots and help you throughout the class.
