Natural Lotion Making Seminar

Join Jen from The Eco Well in this 2 hour seminar about lotion making. In this seminar, we’ll cover water-based lotions, surfactants and emulsification, and preservation. We’ll review all of the varying ingredients you can use to emulsify and preserve your products, from ecocert natural ingredients (which we’ll be using) to synthetics. At the end of the seminar, we’ll make one lotion as a group which everyone will be able to customize with different essential oils. This seminar is suitable for anyone wanting a good base to start making their own lotion. If you’re a bit more advanced, for example if your a manufacturer, we would be happy to go into further detail with you and answer any of your questions :).

Natural Perfumery Intensive Seminar

Join Jen from The Eco Well in an intensive seminar focused on fragrance. In this 2 hour seminar, we’ll take you through all the different types of perfumery products and how they’re made, how we choose fragrances as consumers and how perfumers will storytell through their formulations, how fragrances are layered in a perfume and different aroma families. We’ll also talk about sustainability in fragrances and important things you should know, as well as the history of the perfumery industry. Our discussion will be focussed on natural fragrances, including essential oils and absolutes, although we will also touch on synthetics and their pros and cons. Throughout the event, you’ll get to smell different single aromas and blends, where you’ll get to try to pick out the fragrant notes. Before you leave, you’ll get to make your own custom perfume to take home. After this seminar, you can be sure you'll have a good base for your understanding of natural perfumery. This workshop would also be perfect if you're an essential oil enthusiast and would like a high level breakdown on the subject. Manufacturers are also welcome. PS, we love questions! If you have any, be sure to bring them along :).

The cost of this workshop includes 1 natural perfume that you'll get to make yourself, a perfumery booklet by The Eco Well, and coffee or tea. We suggest bringing a pen and notepad if you’d like to take notes. Limited tickets, get em’ while they last.

Natural Facial Care Seminar

In this seminar, we’ll cover the biology of your skin as it relates to cosmetics, formulating products at a suitable pH and why that’s important, effective natural ingredients that you can use in your facial care, and more. We’ll be making two products in this seminar: a toner and a simple cleanser. We’ll cover how to make these two products, surfactants, preservation and solubilizers. The ingredients that we’ll be using in this seminar will be all EcoCert natural ingredients, but we’ll cover all of the ingredient options for the formulas and why they may be used as well as why we prefer EcoCert ingredients. This seminar is suitable for anyone wanting a good base to start making their own cleansers and facial products.
