Before the workshop I reach out to you to offer a list of product to choose from. Here are some examples of what you can do: lipstick, lip balm, anti-aging face cream, body lotion, shampoo bar, natural deodorant and more. The list is constantly evolving! Please be mindful that in order for the workshop to go smoothly, I can only offer products which I am currently doing and will be unable to create a new tailored product just for you. As part of every workshop you get to do 1 products of your choice. Part 1: Overview We get around the table and I introduce you to the ingredients, a quick overview of why we are using them and what their role and benefits are. We go over the fabrication process and your work station. We make sure you are comfortable with the recipe. This part takes roughly 15 min. Part 2: Hands on! Step by step you create your batch by following the recipe. I am available to supervise and help you as you get familiar with it. This takes around 1 hour. A note on packaging: if you are making a lip balm, lipstick or a cream you are welcome to bring your own jars and tubes to refill them. This is encouraged to reduce plastic consumption. You don't have any? Not a problem, I will supply you some.
I have been making my own cosmetics since 2018 and teaching them in workshops since 2019. I am deeply passionate about skin care and cosmetics. To promote sustainability, I gave myself the challenge to create products with the highest amount of healthy and locally sourced ingredients. Croatia has tremendous raw products that can be used as cosmetic base: immortelle, lavender and olive oils are among my favorites. These are some of the products you can do as part of the experience: natural deodorant, shower jelly body wash, non-sticky body lotion, unique shade lipstick, sea salt body scrub. I am currently completing a professional course which will complement the knowledge I already accumulated. My guilty pleasure is to spend a full day making new enhanced recipes to develop brand new products which we can do together during the workshop.
