Most skin care products are oil-based (ex. lotions, creams, body butters, salves, balms, serums, make-up removers, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, massage products, etc.). Do you make your own cosmetics, bath, body or facial products? If so, how much do you know about the specific oils that you are currently using? Or, if you are still in the process of testing or creating recipes, how do you know which oil(s) to use? The choice of your carrier oils, when formulating, is a critical step in product customization.
Since the beginning of time, and before the cosmetic industry appeared with all its chemicals & additives, OILS were the main cosmetic used to beautify hair, skin, nails & face. When cold pressed & organic, these oils are essential foods to our bodies and our skin, helping prevent cell degeneration & premature skin aging. They are considered "liquid gold" to our health, beauty & wellness.
In this seminar, Alice Duvernell will introduce you to useful, practical & in-depth information about the health & cosmetic qualities of common & more unique precious carrier oils. You'll learn about potential allergens, how to choose the best oils for each skin type, including how to differentiate between nourishing oils /semi-dry oils / dry oils, & also which oils to choose to treat various skin conditions.
Alice will delve into phyto chemistry, explaining what are trans, saturated & unsaturated fats, fatty acids and most importantly what vitamins & essential omegas cold pressed oils contain. Carrier oils are truly magical and their virtues bring beauty both outside & in (to your cosmetic formulations and also your personal diet).
In the last half-hour of this seminar, Alice will share her "Top 10 Amazing Oils" and students will formulate their own 4-ounce custom-made cold pressed organic massage oil. In addition, students will take home handouts that include reference tables & helpful info for formulating.
