What you'll learn in this skin care class:

Learn to make your very own highly effective, natural, plant-based, antiaging facial products from scratch in this hands-on, evening intensive workshop on the Upper West Side. Dry skin? Oily skin? Combo or problem skin? We have all skin types covered!

Have you been disappointed with results and ingredients in overpriced antiaging skincare products? In this educational and fun, 3-hour intensive class you will learn how to make your own plant-based, spa-quality, anti-aging skincare products. Marla will share natural and effective ingredients including the best herbs, plant oils, essential oils and other botanical ingredients. She will also explain easy formulation guidelines. By the end of class you will be on your way to making your own skincare products at home to keep your face looking young and revitalized.

In this class we are going to tackle fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, dullness, oiliness, uneven skin tone, pigmentation, loss of firmness, elasticity and more.

They are also amazing for personal use for yourself, friends and family members. These face treatments make an excellent addition to an indie beauty product line. You'll take home samples of all products made in class and recipes to make more at home. 

No prior experience is necessary. This class is taught by Back Porch Soap Company founder, Marla Bosworth. She has been formulating natural skincare products for 21 years. Marla is known for her clear, concise communication and simple instruction as well as her patience and compassion for those on the cosmetic formulation learning path.  This class is intended for beginner through advanced.

This is a plant-based, natural skincare class with products specifically formulated for the face.
Learn how to create new recipes for various skin types. This class is intended for beginners through advanced students.

    • Learn to make powerful skincare treatments for the face.
    • We'll use natural and organic ingredients.
    • Where to purchase ingredients and supplies.
    • How to effectively preserve, and the most natural choices.
    • This is a hands-on class or you can choose to watch.
    • We'll discuss theory of each formula first, then make the product.
    • Sample and discover the best essential oils for blending.
    • How to package, label and sell.
    • You'll take home full-size samples from each formula.

    We will cover the essentials of formulating the products made in class, and options for tweaking the formulas to suit your very own skincare needs. Students will learn where to purchase anti-aging, natural ingredients as well as the healing properties of plant oils, herbs and other botanicals.  You'll love the price markup on these products if you make natural skincare to sell. If you don't have a business, you'll love the money saving benefit of making your own face products.

    We'll be making distinctively different formulations, and students will take home the following that we will make as a class:

    • Hydrating Face Mist (retail value $38+)
    • Regenerating Hyaluronic Cream (retail value $80+)
    • Revitalizing Face Polish (retail value $38+)
    • Firming & Brightening Rejuvenation Serum (retail value $58+)

    Students will receive a detailed class handout that includes instructions, formulas and a valuable list of Marla's favorite places to buy ingredients and supplies.
