Our courses are accredited, in-depth, multimedia courses that provide a start-to-finish journey in a particular area of the formulation. They have fixed curriculums that are structured to build your theoretical and practical knowledge of making and formulating natural and organic skincare or haircare products as you advance sequentially through the materials.
The Natural Cosmetic Formulation Club (‘the Club’) is a place for green beauty enthusiasts who want to enhance and diversify their skills and grow as a formulator. It has been designed to give its members a flexible, affordable approach to expanding their skills and knowledge.
Being a member of the Club will help you to:
- Continually build on and improve your formulation skills through fun classes and courses.
- Expand the range of products you can make.
- Learn new lab skills and techniques.
- Access professional lab reports like Preservative Efficacy Testing.
- Stay up to date with new ingredients and trends.
- Be supported by a community of like-minded formulators and our Cosmetic Scientists.
The key difference between the Club and our courses is that you as a member have more control over your learning journey. From month to month, you can ‘pick and choose your learning material, thanks to the Club’s credit system.
