This hands-on class is for those who want to learn how to make & customize their own lotion and stop buying store-bought, manufactured lotions that are laden with chemicals, toxins and alcohol. Natural lotion is made with natural oils, butters & other skin-nourishing ingredients like aloe vera; there are no chemicals and nothing that will dry out your skin, so you only need to use a small amount to fully moisturize your skin. You will notice that your skin will become softer & more moisturized over time by switching to natural lotion. We'll cover the following: - the differences between manufactured lotions & natural, homemade ones, including why certain chemicals are added to manufactured lotions & how they are harmful - how to use an online, ingredient checker at ewg.org; this website allows you to check the potential toxicity of ingredients (natural & synthetic) found in personal-care products - the different types of natural lotions and their pros & cons, including how to work with preservatives and make a sunscreen or bug-repellent lotion - the materials needed & where to get them, as well as the lotion recipe and how to adjust it based on your personal preferences - making & customizing your lotion (what I call water-based lotion) with the ingredients that work best for your skin type (e.g. jojoba oil for sensitive skin, coconut milk for dry/damaged skin, lavender essential oil for acne-prone skin) In this class, an informational, ingredient chart is provided so that you can choose the ingredients & customize your lotion based on your skin-care needs. You'll go home with 8 fl oz of lotion, the ingredient chart and a thorough, detailed instructional handout, including all of the information that we'll cover & a list of suppliers. Everything is provided in the class, as well as some snacks & tea. This class lasts about 1 hour & 45 minutes and is available for up to 2 people. Face/body wash (+$30), bath bombs (+$25) & lip balm (+$20) can be added on to any class; each adds about 30-60 minutes, depending on the product. Each product can be customized with the ingredients of your choice, based on your fragrance preference &/or skin-care needs. Contact Lindsay if interested and if you have any questions. What makes Lindsay's DIY (Do-It-Yourself) classes unique? Much more goes into making natural, personal care products than you might think. It's a science! So it is very important that you understand why you are doing something, not just how to do something. Each class begins with discussing the science behind making the product, why certain ingredients are needed & formulating recipes, which is often the hardest part. Then it's time for the hands-on part, making the product with me as your guide. My goals are for you to have fun learning something new & making your product, and that you leave the class with a solid, knowledge foundation that you can build upon.
