Leanne Simcock is a 41-year-old mother of two from Melbourne, Australia who has always been interested in healthcare, particularly skincare. She holds a bachelor’s degree in health science in natural medicine and currently works in administration at a hospital. 

Leanne’s passion for natural skincare led her to try and make her own products over ten years ago, but she struggled to get them right. “I started looking up recipes in books and online and I started trying to make products, and I just found I was having a lot of problems with products separating and being too oily,” she explained.

Despite her early struggles, Leanne persisted in her desire to create her own skincare products, and eventually stumbled upon the School of Natural Skincare in 2015. “I came across the School of Natural Skincare, and that was when I first enrolled in the first couple of courses, which back then was the Beautiful Body Care course and the Facial Skincare course,” she recalls. She then enrolled onto the School’s Certificate in Making Natural Skincare Products and Diploma in Natural Skincare Formulation online courses.

Leanne had been searching for comprehensive training in natural cosmetics for months when she came across the School of Natural Skincare. She was immediately drawn to the school’s program, which covered everything from the basics of natural cosmetics to advanced formulation techniques. She was impressed by the experienced instructors and the hands-on training that the school offered. Leanne knew that this was the perfect place for her to learn and grow.

Finally, Leanne had found the formula to create products that looked and felt as they were intended. “I just really loved it and I finally had the formula of how to make products that actually look like they were supposed to,” she said.

Leanne’s background in natural medicine meant that she was already aware of the potentially harmful chemicals in conventional skincare products. “I know a lot about chemicals in products and the crazy things that they put in. So I really love organic ingredients and am really mindful of what I put on my skin,” she explained. 

Despite her knowledge, it was the School of Natural Skincare that gave her the skills to create effective and safe natural products. “I realized that I really needed to do a proper course in learning how to formulate products,” she said.

Transformative Experience at the School of Natural Skincare

Leanne’s experience at the School of Natural Skincare was transformative. She was thrilled to be surrounded by knowledgeable and experienced instructors who provided her with invaluable feedback and support throughout her training. The hands-on training and practice gave her the confidence to create her own line of natural face creams, lotions, and balms.

“Studying at the School of Natural Skincare was an incredible experience,” Leanne says. “I learned so much from the instructors and gained invaluable experience from the hands-on training. It was amazing to see my skills grow and to gain the confidence I needed to launch my own business.”

Launching a Successful Natural Cosmetics Business

With the skills and knowledge she gained from the School of Natural Skincare, Leanne is in the process of launching her own business with a line of natural skincare products. She is planning to market her products to individuals seeking natural and sustainable skincare options, and the response in her research has so far been overwhelmingly positive. Those who have tried her products (essentially, her first customers) appreciate the high-quality ingredients and the attention to detail that went into each product.

“Starting my own business is a dream come true,” Leanne says. “I am finally able to turn my passion for natural cosmetics into a profitable venture, and I owe it all to the School of Natural Skincare. The training and support I received there were instrumental in my success.”

Thanks to her studies, Leanne has been able to turn her passion for natural cosmetics into what very well could be a successful business. “I have my own business now, and I make all my own products, and I sell them,” she explained. Leanne’s experience at the School of Natural Skincare has allowed her to create products that are safe, effective, and aesthetically pleasing. “It’s just been amazing, like the difference that it’s made,” she said.

Leanne’s story is an inspiring example of how a passion for natural cosmetics can be turned into a successful career with the right education and training. Thanks to her studies at the School of Natural Skincare, Leanne has been able to achieve her goals and make a positive impact in the world of skincare.

Goals for the Future

Leanne has big plans for the future. She wants to expand her business and create new and innovative natural cosmetics products. She is excited about the possibilities and is confident that she can continue to grow and thrive in the industry.

“I’m so grateful for the training and support I received at the School of Natural Skincare,” Leanne says. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without their help. I can’t wait to see what the future holds and to continue creating natural cosmetics products that make a difference in people’s lives.”

The Power of Passion and Importance of Comprehensive Training

Leanne’s success story is a testament to the power of passion and the importance of comprehensive training. The School of Natural Skincare provided her with the skills, knowledge, and support she needed to turn her passion into a profitable business.

The School of Natural Skincare played an instrumental role in Leanne’s success. Before discovering the school, Leanne struggled to find the resources and guidance she needed to create high-quality natural cosmetics products. After completing the program at the school, she is now in a position to be able to launch a successful business and pursue her passion for natural cosmetics. 

Leanne is grateful for the training she received and excited for what the future holds. As she looks to expand her business and create new products, she knows that the skills she learned at the School of Natural Skincare will be invaluable.
