The Event

"60% of what our bodies absorb is through our skin. We spend huge amounts on beauty products that put toxins into our bodies. If we wouldn’t eat it, why are we OK with putting it on our skin? Join me to discover the secrets of making your own non-toxic, homemade cosmetics so pure you can eat them! Perfect for gifts ideas or simply to indulge yourself." Anne Quinn, Medical Herbalist and Workshop Host in Natural Skin Care 

The class will include:

  • Learning what commercial cosmetics are made from and why to avoid them
  • The basics of making chemical-free beauty products that won’t irritate your skin, and the best natural ingredients, oils, waxes and herbs to use
  • How to care for your individual skin type
  • How to make your own effective natural cosmetics using soothing, nourishing ingredients, including a vitamin C facial serum, a shampoo, a face cream and a lip balm.
  • Recipes and samples for each product made on the day, plus lots of tips and extra recipes to help you start making your own products at home
  • A delicious organic plant based lunch

Anne has been running natural skin care workshops in London for many years for organisations such as The Soap Kitchen, Baldwin’s the herbalists, and King Henry’s Walk Garden. Originally the owner of a successful photographic business for 20 years in London's West End, Anne attended a soap making workshop in 2008 and was hooked! Anne then went on to study herbal medicine at Middlesex University and became a Medical Herbalist in 2103. Anne has a wealth of experience formulating cosmetics using natural, organic ingredients.
