Meet Sabine Schroeder, creator of Spa in a Jar, Australia 


Sabine has completed our Diploma in Natural Skincare Formulation and our Certificate in Preservative-Free Face Mask & Cleanser Formulation. She sells her quirky brand, Spa in a Jar, in stores and markets in Queensland, Australia.

After her corporate job left her burnt out and seriously ill, Sabine refocused her energy on her passion for making a difference in the world. She now lives her dream life passionately developing delicious natural, organic and vegan skin and health care products that truly have an impact and make a difference.

We catch up with her and see how her business is flourishing, and how studying with us helped her achieve her dream.



What difficulties or struggles did you have before you started the Diploma in Natural Skincare Formulation? What challenges were you facing?

I found it really hard to calculate formulations properly and price my products right for working with retailers.


Why did you decide to take the Diploma in Natural Skincare Formulation?

To gain a solid foundation in formulating and to ensure the safety and suitability of my products when introduced to the market.


How have the courses you have taken helped you develop you own range of products? What can you do now that you couldn’t before?

I can now formulate properly. I feel much more secure in taking the right steps, at the right time, in the right way, backed up by science.


What was most useful and enjoyable about the course?

I love it! It’s just perfect! I loved the practical side and all the detail included. Every section is useful to me and inspires me to explore, to learn more and to feel empowered.

I am so grateful to be able to learn from the combined experiences of the School of Natural Skincare team and for your generosity and support!
