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.  




Whilst there are no prerequisites for this course, an understanding of making traditional cold or hot process soaps would be an advantage.
