This cosmetic formula worksheet is simple to fill out and you can quickly write down your formula and adjust it. It’s a great worksheet to get you started and understand how to create a cosmetic formula. A formula should always be in percentages. The percentage column needs to equal 100%. The amount column total is the size of your batch.
Of course you can always create the formula in Excel and easily adjust the formula in Excel.

  • Thank you very for your person experience on this journey of formulating product I really appreciate . will definitely enrol for next intake.

  • I saw the movie and it was inspiring, I care for my daughter’s hair using various products trying to find the one that will support growth and length retention. I recently started using ayurvedic herbs, and I’d like to learn how to formulate incorporating them. Does your course cater to that please?

    • That is great you are into herbs and pay attention caring for your daughter’s hair. I have used ayurvedic herbs for many years. Ayurvedic herbs for the hair have been traditionally used for a long time and I draw on that knowledge and infuse into formulations. The course has a lesson on herbs. We cover Ayurvedic herbs for hair during that lesson on the live call.

  • I love Jane Carter’s products, and I love the fact that you are inspired by Madam C.J. Walker! I am so inspired by her story as well. I have read all of the biographies of her life, and I recently saw a film inspired by her life on Netflix called “Self Made.” Its an excellent movie. I don’t have a crystal clear idea as to what kind of natural hair care formulations that I want to create, I just know I want to create something. I am still forming ideas in my mind and heart. I look forward to starting the course on Natural Hair formulations in 2021!

    • I also watched Self Made on Netflix. I was so surprised and happy to see it available. I don’t think anyone ever has a crystal clear idea of the business or formulations they want to create. You just need an idea and then build on it. It will keep evolving until you have clarity. I would love to have you in the course.
