The Lab at Formula Botanica is a membership site, designed to help indie beauty formulators and entrepreneurs to keep up with their Continuing Professional Development, or CPD.
Through monthly training modules, our exclusive members-only community receive VIP training in organic formulation, botanical ingredient research and beauty entrepreneurship. The Lab at Formula Botanica welcomes all formulators, researchers and entrepreneurs, of any ability, who all want to change their lives through green beauty.
Our members-only platform was created to complement our award-winning online courses. Where you will learn from the Formula Botanica team, as well as our regular special guest speakers. In addition to great content, The Lab is also an online members’ hub, where you’ll connect with the best in the industry.
Here’s what you get access through The Lab:
Each month we deliver a bundle of content to the Lab dashboard for members, this bundle of content is called a Mini Lab. Mini Labs are in-depth training modules on specialised topics covering advanced natural cosmetic formulation, innovative ingredients and beauty industry trends and business skills.
You can work through the Mini Lab content at your own pace and enjoy our videos, worksheets and fun quizzes. Members can access Mini Labs from previous months, therefore, if you want to go back and revisit a topic, you can.
Each of our monthly Mini Labs is accredited by the CPD Certification Service UK, and will provide you with a CPD certificate and an exclusive Mini Lab Badge, which you can use to demonstrate your continuing professional development.
You can proudly display your badges and certificates on your social media channels, website, LinkedIn profile, curriculum vitae or resumé, or you can create a CPD portfolio for yourself, compiling all your CPD certificates.
Our Lab Libraries are packed full of information to help you as a formulator and entrepreneur. Whether it is detailed research on natural ingredients, formulations for all levels of experience or useful equipment reviews, you will find it all in the Lab Libraries.
As a Lab member you will have access to exclusive interviews and live Q&A’s with experts in the organic and indie beauty space. We want you to be inspired by the best in the industry and we bring them here to you in the Lab.
Lab CPD Passport
All your earned badges and certificates are added to your personal CPD Passport, which all Lab members have access to. We have dozens of Mini Labs to date, and you can retrospectively earn badges and certificates for all past Mini-Labs.
