Lotion making 101 is a comprehensive four to six hour class* that teaches you how to make your very own lotion beginning with you learning how to formulate a lotion tailored to you and your skin requirements. This course is completely hands on, as you make the lotion under direction of the instructor.  Basic math skills are pertinent to success in this class.  (*Note:  The class can take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours depending on the number in the class and other factors.  Please keep this in mind when registering).  

 

The course will cover the following topics:

  • How to formulate your own recipe from scratch (you actually do this with Randi in the class, twice, with the ability to use most of Creations from Eden's products).  **Please note ALL formulas will require a preservative, this is NOT an option.**
  • ​Converting your recipe from percentages to grams and the basics of formulating your very own recipes (using a calculator).  
  • How incorporating different ingredients into your lotion affects the outcome (*you get to choose the ingredients to your skin type and preferences).  
  • The basics of emulsions and how to create a stable one.  
  • The importance of properly preserving your formula and the math behind using the appropriate amount in your formula.

 

Upon completion of the course you will go home with two separate completed recipes (four 8 oz bottles of lotion) and a handy customized workbook to help you recall the information you learned in class. 

 

All materials and supplies are provided in the class and we supply a workbook for you to take notes and work out your formulations.
