Serums are designed to be high-performance products that are formulated to target specific skin concerns. They often do this with the use of a ‘hero’ or star ingredient—an ingredient that is literally the star of the show, the superhero of your product that delivers...
It’s no secret that serums can be versatile, amazing, powerhouse products that help with skin concerns commonly associated with aging skin, but that’s not all that they can do! Our complex and often contentious relationship with aging means we sometimes don’t treat...

Caring for your scalp is such an important part of a haircare routine, but it’s often overlooked. Even if they lather up well and you get a good scrub, shampoos are washed off quickly, and conditioners are rarely applied to the scalp. But treatments designed for scalp...
Making haircare products isn’t as intimidating, or as complex, as you might think. It just requires an understanding of ingredients, formulation best practices, and how the hair and scalp function. When you break it down, and apply some hands-on training, you can...
Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient methodology for healing and wellness, and it’s centered around the unity of body, mind, and spirit. It’s primarily based on ancient Indian writings which outline the medical philosophy for the mostly plant-based treatment of a variety...
The wonderful thing about making your own haircare products is that you get to customize them to suit your exact needs. If you’re relatively new to product formulation, you might not be aware of just how customized your products can be. But even if you’ve started to...

“Now I’ve completed the Certificate in Making Natural Skincare Products, I really want to say a BIG thank you for teaching me this knowledge! I continued experimenting with my own products, such as a serum oil for congested oily skin and blocked pores. The results are bombastic! Only one overnight application and next morning the blackheads and whiteheads were easily removed! My oil massage works great, especially for the joints, and it healed cramped and numb muscles.
I recommend the Certificate in Making Natural Skincare Products with the School of Natural Skincare for those who want to learn how to make their own skincare products. You can sign up at any time and it really sets you up for a bright future with your own skincare business!”

Liv Henrich, New Zealand
“I had my eye on this course for over a year. I was choosing between this course and two others. I decided to start with another one, and to be honest I made a huge mistake – I should have gotten this one from the beginning because it is SO detailed and gives you everything you need to become a great formulator! It is mapped out in such a way that is so easy to understand and you are excited to keep going. The course helped me to really grasp the information and take it in. Maybe there are other people out there deciding between courses… don’t go with the others! You will end up frustrated like I was. This course is the one you want… trust me!”
Tamara Hinds, Canada
“The course has revolutionised my life! My skin is so much healthier and full of life. You are truly an inspiration!”
