My passion for skincare formulation grew, and intensified with the advent of the internet during my years of research. Due to tremendous disinformation, and myths ablaze on the internet, I was not always able to cross check and confirm important data and details. Sadly the internet created gaps in knowledge, as there was no solid learning foundation and/or platform, and/or reliable educational support. Then there were the millennials whose intentions started out clean and green, but, sadly caused more harm than good with green washing, fear mongering and diy videos following improper formulations, ingredients that did not work well together in a synergistic blend, and incorrect methods of manufacture.
I decided to take to the study books yet again, and I am thrilled to have graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Organic Cosmetic Science, Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation, and Tutor Training Program. I also hold certificates in Natural Cosmetic Preservation, Cosmetic Stability Testing, Organic Anti-Ageing Skincare, Facial Masque Therapy, Chocolate Spa Therapy and Beauty Technology.
Yes……I’m a Beauty Therapist turned Advanced Vegan Organic Cosmetic Science Formulator, and savouring every minute of it. It has taken me a while to reach this point, but I am finally here, and I am absolutely ecstatic. I Work while I Play, and I Play while I Work, a fine Juxtaposition of Artful Science and Nature.
