Here's another sneak peek at my first skincare products created years ago check 12 posts back for another sneak peek. My initial products were not perfect, but they were beautiful, delicious, a joy to use and made with love. I was so excited.
Then my friends and family kept asking for more and I realized that I really love making skincare and I set out to learn everything I could and that continues today Lol. My passion caught fire at that moment.
So what inspired me to take it to the next level? The more I learned, the more I loved it. I felt that my first products were already making a difference for my entourage who loved them and with their support I set myself to study professional skincare formulation.
There is a difference between DIY, repeating recipes found online and learning the do's and don'ts of skincare formulation.
For example, ingredients knowledge and their ratio is important. Understanding the science of the skin and how actives work is also important. Knowing how to formulate and make safe products that are properly preserved is also another skill I needed to master. I wanted to know exactly what I was doing so I could offer clean, effective products that are amazing to use and based on sound technical knowledge.
So I took @Formulabotanica International Organic Skincare Entrepreneur program.
This included training in:
1) Basic skincare formulation
2) Advanced skincare formulation
3) Organic Anti-aging skincare
4) Facial masque therapy
5) Natural cosmetic preservation
6) Stability testing
7) Chocolate Spa products
I look back and realize how far I have come. Training with Formula Botanica gave me the confidence and skills to formulate exquisite skin treats that promote glow and radiance. When you have a drean and a vision, go for it.
Don't aim for perfection right away. Learn from your initial vision. Thrive to improve. Trust yourself and go ahead and create magic. You will be so proud of you in the end.
