SK2: From crafter to entrepreneur: Making and selling your own organic skincare products to the public, Tutbury Village Hall, Sunday, 11. August 2019

Are you interested in aromatherapy and organic skincare?
Would you like to know more about how you can safely use essential oils at home? Or maybe you would like to learn how to make your own organic skincare products?
We have a range of workshops suitable from absolute beginners to experienced aromatherapists and skincare entrepreneurs. Learn how to design and make your organic own skincare products or take the next step into turning your passion into an organic Indie brand.
Pop over and learn all about us!  
SK2: From crafter to entrepreneur: Making and selling your own organic skincare products to the public is a more advanced workshop, developed for those who are considering turning their hobby into a business or who would like to know about the legal requirements of making their skincare products available to the public.
Once you have learned the basics of making skincare products, you may well become hooked! If you would like to take your knowledge and skills to another level, either for yourself and family or to start a business, this workshop is for you. We will explore how to keep up-to-date with new ingredients, trends and research, and importantly, new legislation.
We will share our ideas of what we think makes a good product and how to provide exemplary customer service, whether we are planning to open an e-commerce site or sell at craft fayres. Selling cosmetics and skincare products to the public can be a minefield for the unwary, and we will discuss the legal requirements, both UK and EU legislation and selling to the worldwide market.
At the end of the day, you will have learned:

What the UK and EU legal requirements are for selling skincare to the public;

How to prepare records to comply with current UK and EU legislation;

How to keep your knowledge up-to-date;

How to identify ethical considerations for your business;

Tips and ideas for developing new and exciting products.

You will also receive:

A certificate of attendance;

A guidance pack;

A Purely Skincare gift.

Ideally, you will have some knowledge of aromatherapy and/or skincare to make the best of this workshop, such as AT1: Introduction to aromatherapy, SK1: An introduction to making your own organic skincare products or another form of learning or experience.
It is ideal for aromatherapists and massage therapists who would like to extend their practice by selling their own products to the public, or for anyone who loves making their own skincare products and would like to start their own Indie brand.  You can receive 5 CPD points with the FHT for attending the workshop, and you can gain further points by using the experience to, for example, write a reflective piece of work relating to your practice, a case study, or a business or marketing plan. Please check with your own professional body to check how many CPD points you will be eligible for.

SK2: From crafter to entrepreneur: Making and selling your own products to the public covers the necessary information you need to be able to manufacture and sell organic skincare products in the UK and EU. However, there are important considerations and legal requirements for selling products to the public, so you will need to understand adhere to these regulations. Although it seems daunting, we will support you on your journey to your new Indie brand!

We will provide all the equipment and ingredients you will need for the day. We have small tables to work on and there are ample chairs for resting or sitting chatting at break times.
A notepad and pen will be useful. Although we will be providing materials for you to take home, it is always a good idea to jot down a few notes to remind yourself what, how or why you did something!
You are welcome to bring a packed lunch, or you can visit one of our local cafes. We will provide refreshments, so please let us know if you have any allergies, intolerances or dislikes.
