“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!”

The results are bombastic!
“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!”
