Your bathroom is swamped with personal care products, creating a lot of rubbish?
Marion has your back!
TAKE A COURSE WITH US TO SWAP FOR DIY NATURAL AND ZERO-WASTE TOILETRIES!
Experience how simple & cost-effective it can be to make your own personal care products, that are not only healthy but also kind to the planet.
Get a hands-on experience in creating your own products with natural ingredients like coconut oil, aloe vera, tumeric, essential oils, baking soda, etc.
DIY natural and zero-waste toiletries are…
better for your health
What we put on our bodies affects our health as much as what we put in them. Commercial personal care products are full of synthetic chemicals and preservatives. It’s estimated that about 60% of what we put on our bodies is absorbed into our bloodstream. If it makes sense to avoid chemicals in your food, why not do the same with your toiletries?
lighter for your wallet
If your kitchen is already stocked with organic oils, herbs, and other healthy ingredients, you probably have everything you need to give DIY troiletries a try. And you may discover that homemade products are not only a healthier alternative to those chemical- and preservative-doused brands dominating the bodycare market, but they’re more cost-effective and fun, too.
friendlier to the planet
By focusing on making zero waste swaps whenever you can – whether it’s in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry room or on-the-go, you’ll be helping to keep plastic out of the oceans and reducing the amount of garbage in landfills and incinerators. Less demand for stuff = lower pollution and fewer greenhouse gasses – and we know this planet needs our help with this!

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF THE PRODUCTS I WILL MAKE?
Our products have an expected shelf life of 6 months to 1 year if kept closed. Store your products in non humid conditions to keep them at their best.
We use Vitamin E oil as a natural antioxidant to prevent oils and butters to go rancid too fast and thus extend our products’ shelf life.
We don’t use any preservatives in our products since they are anhydrous (containing no water).
I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, IS THIS WORKSHOP SUITABLE?
Ingredients used are all toxic chemicals free (SLS, paraben, etc.) and we use 100% pure and natural essential oils. We will perform an essential oil tolerance test on your skin prior to the beginning of the workshop.
IS THIS WORKSHOP SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
Crafting places for this workshop are suitable for ages 12 years and over.
However, you may attend with children under this age to accompany you.
IS THE WORKSHOP VEGAN FRIENDLY?
Some of the products we make contain beeswax and thus are not vegan friendly.
But if you’re interested in learning, you can join the workshop, offer the products to a non-vegan friend, and make them again at home with vegetable wax (candelilla wax for example).
DO ANY OF THE PRODUCTS/INGREDIENTS CONTAIN PALM OIL?
No, none of our formulations contain palm oil.
