With at least one "product making course" per month, our classes are enjoyed by all that attend.

Suitable for all abilities and experience, from those wanting to make cosmetics at home to those wishing to make cosmetics for retail.

After the three days, you will leave with the ability to produce creams, gels, lotions, shower gels, shampoos, conditioners, cleansers and masks and understand the fundamentals of cosmetic manufacture to enhance your confidence.

Our Cosmetic Making Courses are £399 for three days and are held at our training school in Wallington (just 20 minutes by train from Central London)

the Cosmetic Product Making Course, what will I learn?

You will learn how to work with emulsifiers, surfactants, preservatives and oils and make products from creams to conditioners, from shower gel to balms.

Importantly we teach you how to formulate, not just how to make a single product.

On the course you will learn how you take Raw Ingredients and turn them into finished Cosmetic products. You will learn how to make Balms, Creams, Shower Gels, Shampoos, Cleansers, Conditioners, Gels, Exfoliates and the general principle behind every skincare product

Making your products and selling them legally in the UK and Europe

Did you know if you purchase all of the ingredients and base products from Naturallythinking, we can produce the legal paperwork for you to be able to sell your product legally within the UK and EU.

The document (called a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR)) will allow you to do this.

Who is the cosmetic making course suitable for?

The great thing about every course is the diversity of people that attend.

We have complete beginners, those that want to create a business and those who have a keen interest and want to make their own skincare at home.

Our visitors come from across the world. We have had course visitors from Dubai, India, and Europe, and closer to home from our local town.

Everyone is welcome, and the diversity of people, experience and aims creates a happy and wonderful three days.

i learnt so much...

Thank you so much for a wonderful course. I learnt so much on the course, way more than I ever expected. At first I was worried we wouldn't make every product I wanted to understand, but course has taught me not just how to make a specific product but how to formulate cosmetic products and the similarities between a conditioner and a cleanser.

Wonderful environment...

Everything about the course I enjoyed, from the location, to the people and most of all Tom. Tom made time for me in the breaks (and I turned up early one morning) to go through some questions that I had. The entire course has taken me from always buying ready made products to making my own confidently. I never originally attended the course with the intention to sell my products, but I am now definitely thinking of this for the future.

Suvanya, Liverpool

I feel so confident...

Excellent Advice, Excellent Location, Excellent Format and 3 days well spent.

At first I was worried about parting with £399 of my cash, but having attended the course, I can say it is outstanding value. I've had a wonderful time and it I now can extend my range of products to include some creams alongside my oils.

Thanks Tom for all your help and advice.
