You will need to buy cosmetic ingredients to create your own organic cosmetic formulations. We provide a handy supplier guide in your course materials, with close to 300 global suppliers - crowd-sourced from our student community.
We estimate that you should budget to spend about 50% of your course fees again on ingredients. Purchasing ingredients can get quite addictive too, so we recommend setting yourself a strict budget! :)
If you live in a part of the world where there are not many ingredients suppliers (e.g. parts of Africa, South America, Asia) then you may also need to be prepared to import certain natural ingredients.
