I’m so excited! I just designed the curriculum for an Advanced Lotionmaking Class at Otion. It’s so new that you can’t even sign up for the class yet but I’m bursting with excitement (yes, I’m a geek) and couldn’t wait to share it with you. Plus, if you see any major holes in the subject matter, I trust you tell me.
Advanced Lotion Class: Have you mastered the basics of lotiomaking and you’re ready to take it to the next level? In this class, we’ll go over how to design your own recipe from scratch using %s, test several emulsion systems and briefly cover ingredients (cosmeceuticals) to turn your lotion into an anti-acne or anti-aging product. Finally, we’ll discuss the rules the FDA sets on making claims about your lotion or crème.
Class is $35
Students will leave with samples of crèmes and lotions from the class.
May 2nd, Saturday, 2 p.m. at Otion (in Bellingham, Washington)
Note: I’ll be teaching a similar class for the SoapGuild Conference this yearbut it is a shorter class and will probably not get to cover cosmeceuticals.
