Formula Botanica provides all of its students with a Global Recommended Supplier Guide, which comes with each course. This guide contains close to 300 global suppliers, which have been recommended by our student community.
We crowd-source this information and update our supplier guide annually in discussion with our students in our online classroom. When a student has a bad experience with a supplier, we will generally remove them from our guide. When a student recommend a supplier, we add them to our guide.
There are many global suppliers of good quality cosmetic ingredients around the world, however certain parts of the world (in particular South America, parts of Africa and certain parts of Asia) still do not have many cosmetic ingredients suppliers. Students in those countries will need to be prepared to import their ingredients.
