Organic Skincare Formulation
I have a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation and will teach you how to make your natural skincare products at home. Only organic and natural ingredients are used, nothing artificial. We will be making anhydrous products which means no water will be used therefore eliminating the need for preservatives and emulsions. We will be using organic oils and butters to make a range of products suitable for all skin types. You will learn about the different oils and butters available, the beautiful blends of Essential oils and their suitability and benefits to the skin.
In this workshop you will make at least 3 organic skin care products which will include a moisturiser, and 2 more products such as: a cream cleanser, a lip balm, a facial or a body oil, a body butter, a massage oil, a nail and cuticle oil, a hair oil etc. All ingredients will be posted to you 1st class in plenty of time for the workshop.

I was on this course last week. It was a great experience, and I'm really pleased with the end products. I'd never done anything like this before, but Rose took us through the process in very clear steps, making it fun and accessible for beginners!
I received a package with the ingredients a few days beforehand, with a list of basic kitchen utensils that would be needed. All the packaging is sustainable, and Rose was really informative about the ingredients, and answered all our questions during the workshop.
I'm really happy with the end products (bath melts and body butter). They're lovely to use, and it's great to know that they're cruelty free and organic. Would definitely recommend!
Response from Organik Orangutan:Hi Fohla thank you for your lovely review. So glad you enjoyed the workshop and your finished products. Hope to see you again on another workshop. Take care. Rosie x
Took this online course on Friday. It was such a diverting, practical and fun course. I learnt such a lot about different oils and butters. Rosie sent all the organic ingredients and some equipment several days before. You just need a few basic kitchen utensils to hand. It worked brilliantly on zoom. The participants could see each other and Rosie, who came across loud and clear, taking us through each step calmly and expertly. By the end of the two hours, that flew by, I had a jar of gorgeous Lemongrass and Bergamot body butter and 10 body/bath melts. I highly recommend this course. It's a lovely thing to do with family and friends that we can't see at the moment too. I felt really connected to them.
Response from Organik Orangutan:Thank you for your lovely review Madeleine, glad you enjoyed the workshop and the products you made. Hope to see you on another workshop. Take care Rosie x
Fascinating and fun online organic skincare workshop this morning with Rosie from Organik Orangutan - all ethical, organic and cruelty free. We made a lush body butter with the kit she posts out to you (in sustainable packaging) including all the ingredients and your chosen essential oil scent. You just need everyday kitchen equipment and you're away. Very enjoyable mix of chemistry and cosmetics! Rosie is a brilliant engaging teacher and very patient with all our questions. I highly recommend this workshop and I'm definitely going to sign up for another one :)
Response from Organik Orangutan:Thank you for your lovely review Sheila hope to see you on another workshop :) x
I did the course with Rose and found it very good.

It was informative and creative and I really enjoyed myself plus the end product!
Response from Organik Orangutan:Thank you Antonia, really pleased you enjoyed it and hope you enjoy the products you made. Rosie :)
