About the Course
Would you like to learn how to make your own skincare with all-natural ingredients?
It’s time to take control over what goes onto your skin and decide which beneficial ingredients (many of which you will find in your kitchen) you would like to indulge your skin with. All the products we make will be preservative free which means they are made without water and as such they are completely natural.
With a hands-on practical approach, you will make a selection of skincare products to take home with you. You will learn to make these products for a fraction of the price of the major skincare brands and by making your own you will reduce your carbon footprint. Better for you and better for the planet!
Many of us are making the move away from conventional products and want to avoid the use of synthetic chemicals on our skin.
So why not take the first step in your journey to a green lifestyle and learn to make your own skincare?

I have attended all of Ruth's courses and they are all excellent. The skincare course has provided me with the basics to make my own items. So much easier to go and experience the process with other people than to watch a youtube video.
Waiting for your next course Ruth!

A really lovely way to spend the day. There was a mixture of people on the course, from those who wanted to include the skincare in their business plans, to my friend and I who are just natural skincare enthusiasts and who fancied trying to make it ourselves. It was well taught and good fun. We made bath bombs, lip balm, body butter and cleansing balm.

Since attending the course I have enjoyed using all my products and am keen to try making them at home! Thanks Ruth!
