Our courses promote the use of natural ingredients where possible, however where there is a synthetic ingredient that we feel gives a more professional finish to a product we will include those too.  

Whilst we don't specifically focus on organic ingredients should you wish to substitute an ingredient - for example coconut oil for its organic version, you are completely at liberty to do so.


Online tests, course assignment (including product review) and certificate are included in the course fee.  Email support from your tutor is available for 6 months from the date of purchase. 

After purchasing this course you will be sent an email with download links, please read the email carefully prior to opening the documentation as it contains important information about document access.
