FAQ's

How do I receive the diploma?

You must take and complete all the lessons in the course and pass the final. After these requirements are met, you will receive your diploma certificate online. You can print and frame this huge mile-stone and accomplishment.

When I receive access to the course?

You will receive access to the course and course training materials immediately after full payment is made.

Will I be able to start my own hair or skin care line after completion of the course?

Yes, you will learn everything needed to know to make and formulate skin or hair care products. Our students go on to create successful skin and hair care lines.

What is the Self-Study Course and the Mentored Session? What is the difference?

1. The online course: formulas, course material, videos, and manuals are the same. The course can be accessed at any time.

2. You will receive the same Diploma once the course requirements are met (course modules and lessons are completed, course quizzes are completed, and the final exam is passed).

3. The 8-week Mentored Session is once a year. During these 8 weeks, you will receive course emails that will guide you through the course, give instructions, tips, and assignments. It is up to each student to follow the guide or not. You will also be mentored by Joan Morais. This means you will get the opportunity to participate in Live Q+A Sessions through the 8 week session. During the Live Q+A, you can get your questions answered. You can also ask questions inside the course. 

4. If you enroll in the Self-study, you can start the course early. Some students wish to start now versus waiting for the next mentored session. A benefit of starting early will provide more time to prepare questions to get the most out of the Live Q+A Sessions with Joan Morais.

How long is the course?

The Mentored sessions are 8 weeks long. You will receive Lifetime Course Access, a benefit of taking our course so you can complete the course at any time.

What skill level is required? Can I start as a beginner?

Yes, you can start as a beginner with no prior knowledge. The Diploma Certification Courses teach in-depth on how to make and formulate products. Our students range from beginner, intermediate and advanced. Many students want to start a natural hair and skin care line and many students have a line they want to improve the products, add new products or take over the control of the manufacturing.

Will I be able to make safe products for the market?

The course contains information, instructions, and guidance for making safe, stable and effective products for the market including pre-market testing. Implementing GMP and pre-market testing allows you to produce safe, stable and effective products.

Are there set times I need to participate in the Course? Is there a schedule?

Each week, you will receive an email which will guide you through the mentored course. If you want to complete the course in 8 weeks, it is best to go by the course schedule and review the modules on the schedule. Each student has control over when and how they want to take the course. You can work ahead, or take longer to complete. You will have Lifetime Course Access to the course. The 7 Live Q+A Sessions are scheduled and recorded. If you cannot make a Live Q+A Session and have questions, you can send these in through email prior. Joan will address these questions on the call and you can listen to the recording afterwards. A one-on-one consultation with Joan is available to purchase with the course. She offers this option to Pro Course students only.

I live in another country, how can I find resources and raw materials?

The course provides many resources in other countries. We have students take our courses from all over the world. We select ingredients that are usually easily sourced. You can also research raw material and cosmetic ingredient suppliers in your area and check other countries to see who will ship to you. The course mentor, Joan Morais, will work closely with her students and can provide you with substitutions if needed.

Will I receive course materials?

The course material is a training manual that is available as a download in your course account. We recommend you save the download to your computer.

Will I learn to formulate?

Yes, you will learn to formulate and make natural formulations. The course lessons are in-depth for training in formulating and making natural hair and skin care products.

Do you use preservatives in water-based formulations?

Yes, preservatives are crucial in water-based formulations. A formulation containing water with no preservative is like yogurt, unrefrigerated, and hoping it won’t become contaminated with bacteria, yeast and mold. The yogurt will be unsafe to consume. Formulations are expected to be safe and unadulterated for consumers. The preservatives used in the formulations are approved by Ecocert, COSMOS. We also use natural preservatives from renewable sources such as plants and educate on these preservatives and using these preservatives in formulation. 

What ingredients are used in your formulations?

The formulations use high quality raw materials/ ingredients that have been selected carefully that are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. The ingredients include plant-based, green, clean, organic, renewable, bio-based, biodegradable and sustainable. Most of the main ingredients in the formulations can be sourced from many countries with cosmetic ingredient suppliers. We do not have a listing of the ingredients as there are options for the student depending on the country they are sourcing the ingredients.

What equipment do I need?

The Equipment Lesson has 4 Levels:

  • Level 1: Kitchen Equipment — For those starting out and small production
  • Level 2: Lab Equipment — For formulating and small production
  • Level 3: Medium Batch Production — For batch sizes around 42 pounds, 5 gallons. 19 liters
  • Level 4: Manufacturing Lab Equipment — Expensive lab equipment and manufacturing equipment for large batch production

We leave it up to each student to decide on what equipment to purchase and on what scale they want to start making products. Common kitchen equipment can be used or lab equipment. We recommend you learn the material in the course before purchasing equipment. You will learn about many equipment options and resources in the course.

    I have just completed the Pro Natural Skin Care Formulation course and I cannot give it enough praise. I’m a rookie when it comes to formulating. I have learned much more than I ever thought I would. Joan is a very knowledgeable, generous, kind hearted teacher and you can feel it in the course. I’m so excited to start formulating and putting in practice everything I’ve learned the past 8 weeks. I highly recommend this course.

  5. Ocean (verified owner)

    I finished the Professional Natural Skincare Product Making Course and I have learned so much! I know understand why certain types of ingredients go together and why certain ingredients do NOT go together. I have a better understanding of different types preservatives and product stability. I would 100% recommend this program because Joan is very patient, very kind, understanding, and full of knowledge. The lessons are easy to follow and understand. Thank you for making this course.

  6. D.O. (verified owner)

    Would definitely recommend!
    Joan and her team were so helpful during the course and provided us with so much knowledge. Their mission is truly to help and teach us, to respect nature and work with it, not against it, and doing it great! The first two weeks seem overwhelming (if you are a beginner like me), but as you go and Joan provides you with explanations, it is much easier, don’t think about how it is tough, you’ll be good I promise.

  7. Alicia Rainville (verified owner)

    I am very happy with the skin care course. I’m new to the formulation world and at first I thought I was in over my head. However, Joan made me feel reassured and was very encouraging along the way. The class is organized wonderfully and the weekly Zoom meetings were a great help. Now I feel very confident and knowledgable. I’m looking forward to trying my hand at some of the amazing preparations Joan taught us. My only complaint is that I cannot decide which amazing formula to try first (haha!).

  8. Joann Mitchell (verified owner)

    I’m so happy that I chose to take Joan’s course! I had it narrowed down to 3 courses to choose from and I feel I made the perfect choice. She shared so much information and I now feel very confident in making my own products! My biggest worry was how to add preservatives correctly, but Joan covered all of that information in detail. I’m also hoping to take the hair course soon. Thank you so much for sharing all of your wisdom, Joan!

  9. LisaC (verified owner)

    I am so happy that I found this school! I can’t imagine another that could compare. In taking the Pro Natural Hair Care class, I have learned so much about natural/sustainable ingredients and continue to gain confidence in formulating. My family and friends have been so happy with what I have been able to formulate. My hair thanks me every day. :). There is so much information provided and it is thoroughly covered in all the videos and live Q&A’s. Joan is also a wonderful instructor. Her caring and passion for the subject as well as her students, comes through in tenfold. All questions asked are answered and if she doesn’t know, she finds out. I highly recommend this class and any that Joan offers in future!

  10. Karishma (verified owner)

    This is an excellent opportunity to learn about plant-sourced cosmetic ingredients and formulation. Joan is kind, gentle, warm and patient. Her knowledge is encyclopedia-cal and her passion for formulation comes through in every interaction. I cannot thank her enough for this wonderfully structured course. Look no further.

  11. Wendy Butvila (verified owner)

    I could not fault this course. It was so well structured. I have NOT had a single formulation failure with Joan’s methods and have learnt so much. I have the confidence to alter base formulations to personalise them or to reinvent them for a specific need. I loved everything about this course. Informative, factual, excellent resources and sound practical tips and tricks!

  12. Kevin Troy

    I would just like to say how amazing this course is – it is packed full of the most incredibly useful information, not to mention the formulations! Everything is clear and concise, and with videos for every single thing you can imagine.

    Joan is such a lovely person – her kindness and expertise radiate in every interaction. Michelle is also so lovely – I can’t speak highly enough of all that I have learnt already, and look forward to having this course by my side forever!

  16. Jane P (verified owner)

    Skin care course was the first one I took with Joan. Great and comprehensive course by a professional trainer. Joan does such an amazing job and explains steps clearly. Further, she provides the resources needed to start formulating. Being able to make natural products for my family and friends has been awesome. I highly recommend this course . Thank you Joan!

  17. Tami G.

    I would not be where I am today without Joan’s courses and private 1:1 consulting. By formulating my own skincare collection I saved thousands of dollars that would have gone to a lab to do the R&D and I may not own the formula in the end. The foundation I got from this course allowed me to feel confident working with different ingredients. Once you know the building blocks of a serum or moisturizer, you have the tools to literally create award winning formulas. Joan is humble and kind and such a wealth of knowledge. Sing up for this course, you will not be disappointed.

  18. Natasha Williams (verified owner)

    I am so happy I decided to take Joan’s skin course before starting my skincare line. Joan was very helpful and informative. I really enjoyed the live classes and loved that I could ask Joan questions outside of the live classes. Being new to formulating and learning about ingredients and the process of formulating can be very overwhelming, so I am happy that I have access to the material for life.

    Joan Morais is an amazing instructor. I started my business during the beginning of covid and I just wanted proper training to run a business and to learn more about natural skin care formulations. This is the best decision I have made for myself and brand. She gives you all the tools to make an effective formulation, but she provides you information about tools, equipments and other amazing essential oils to use to make consistent and effective products. Furthermore she introduces to other essential oils that I never heard before joining this class. In addition she teaches you good manufacturing practices. I encourage everyone to join her class. I am looking forward to joining her monthly subscription class soon.

    Joan is so systematic with the way she does things and her advice and tips are so relevant and useful. The notes are so comprehensive and she has put so much thought into it for her students that she would even put the supplier list next to each ingredient! There is also a life time access to the course so I can go back to the notes, videos etc anytime without having to worry about losing access after finishing the course. I also find her very knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. I also love the fact that it’s a plant based course!!

    This is one of the best decision i have ever taken. I got couple of classes on the internet to choose from but i went for Joan class and i will say its the best decision.

If you are trying to choose out of your bunch of choices of where to learn please choice Joan and i promise you will not regret it. Thanks joan. Much love from Temi

    I’m in the process of taking Joan’s course and it’s been informative thus far. She gives feedback when needed and breaks things down.

    Joan is very helpful and informative. I really enjoyed the LIVE classes, and I am thankful that my questions were answered. When I first started the class it seemed overwhelming, but about after Module 2 my questions got answered and my understanding became clear. I really, truly really :), enjoyed every bit of learning and growing. Joan is also very encouraging. It was worth the time and hard work in completing this course. I will, definitely, have another review in the near future as my business continues to progress.

One of my favorite things about this class was sitting on a live q&a and watching Joan put a formulation together. It was so helpful. I am looking forward to continuing on my formulation journey. Thank you Joan!

    Very detailed course

    This course was very detailed and informative. There is so much information that I went through this entire course 4 times. Each time I did I picked up more valuable info. Joan is a very caring person, evident in the amount of material and the way she presents this course. The mentored session let’s you ask anything you need to know to be a success. I highly recommend this course to anyone serious about creating there own skin care line. I give it an A+

    The Professional Natural Skin Care Making Course was definitely worth the investment. I was introduced to so many new raw ingredients, formulas and ideas. I look forward to incorporating all of this knowledge into my product line. Thank you!!

    The Natural Skin Care Course by Joan Morais more than exceeded my expectations of how to formulate natural and organic products for the skin. She provides an abundance of information, and explains each step concisely. I have much to learn, and have gleaned much from her wealth of knowledge in this area. I am excited to jump in and start creating my own products and hopefully someday launch my own skin care line. A million thanks! ~Denise

    I have enjoyed this course offered by Joan Morais immensely. Its quite thorough and informative. I love the fact that I can work at my own pace and will have lifetime access to this course. Joan has done a good job by covering everything that I would need to start my business.

    I will continue experimenting on making these products as I embark on launching my cosmetic on-line store.

    Joans DIY Soap recipes, I absolutely love and hoping to take her Hair Care course in the future.

    Thank you Joan and God bless you.

    If you are searching for a great course to make your own natural formulation then this is the place for you. I love the fact that Joan is knowledgable about more than just natural cosmetic formulation, she is also an aromatherapist, an herbalist, all-natural-things-lover with holistic and various of experiences/certifications under her belt, so when she is teaching she uses her own interpretation to add extra "sparkle" from her personal experience to the mix.

    Joan was always available to answer question, she cares and want success for her students. She empowers and really teaches from the heart.
    You can tell this course was made with love as she is super passionate about what she does and it could be seen from the way she teaches and makes herself available to all her students.
    I am forever grateful for the knowledge I have received and I will definitely take more of Joan’s courses in the future.

    I had been searching for a comprehensive skin care course, and all of the others did not impress me. When I discovered Joan’s course, it had everything I was looking for and then some. Her background and experience as an aromatherapist, herbalist, and formulator was exactly that of a mentor with whom I wanted to study.

    The course material is very well structured and organized, the accompanying module videos help clarify each procedure in the process, and we are encouraged to customize the formulations to make them our own. As someone with a scientific background, I appreciate and admire Joan’s precision and attention to detail.

    Joan answers every question without reservation. I have had instructors of introductory courses who limit the information they tell you. It seems they don’t want to reveal all of their “secrets.” Joan is very generous and an open book. She is willing to share everything she has learned and experienced over her many years of formulating. I can’t thank her enough for answering my myriad of specific questions. She is very patient, kind, and caring—a gem in her own right.

    Thank you, Joan! Your passion, commitment, and dedication are apparent and truly an inspiration. I feel very blessed to have connected with you, and am very grateful for everything you have taught us and for sharing your joy with us.

    This is one of the best courses I’ve taken in skincare. First because it’s simple to understand and there are so many recipes to experiment with and learn about the choices one has in making Natural skincare products . The one on one time with Joan was invaluable . Ashe so much to share , this course is truely just touching the surface of what’s to know . I really look forward to practicing what I’ve learned and I actually know now I can go back to more complicated courses I enrolled in and understand them better because of the foundation Joan has set for me .

    Joan is an exceptional teacher who is constantly making her formulas even better. She explains in detail the reasons she uses certain ingredients, shows how they work, why they work in a formula and how to make the formula your own.

    I have taken all of Joan’s courses and value every one because I was at different points in the learning curve and as I grew her courses met my needs. I am really happy I have the chance to go back and review the videos because it is Joan I learn from, not a manual. She has so much knowledge that she shares as the video is playing.

    I would love to have another chance to learn from Joan and if I am fortunate to I will. Joan inspired me to begin my own business and although it is hard work I want to share how important it is to use healthy ingredients each and every day.

    Thank you Joan for keeping my passion thriving! I hope we can meet for that cup of coffee or tea.
    Maybe we will just have to agree to meet somewhere!

    Live, Love, Laugh

    Joan Morais is a master teacher. Given my great enthusiasm in this subject, I was looking everywhere for the right guidance. Joan is the perfect blend of knowledge and practical instruction. Most importantly, she is Incredibly generous and giving of her time with her students.

    As an esthetician for 20 years, I never thought it possible to create my own product line. Then I started working with a formulator and realized I was completely limited in my input. I didn’t own the recipes (formulas) and didn’t have the creative or intellectual license to make them my own. This was disempowering and I wanted a way to address this barrier.

    I am so grateful I found Joan. Her course provides all the resources that go into making an amazing skincare line. She provides everything you need to make your passion a reality. The world of resources and ethical ingredients are now at my fingertips. There are no words to describe my excitement and immense gratitude for Joan.

    Thank you Joan. My search is over!

    I stumbled upon Joan’s video on youtube while searching for the right mentor for me. After watching one of her videos and listening to her, I immediately knew that my search had ended. Joan came across to me as caring and one who has a passion for what she does. I came to learn that that’s exactly the kind of mentor she truly is. I was very impressed by how generous she is with sharing her knowledge. Her follow ups during the entire course, making sure that I’m not left behind, is an indication of how much she cares about her students. I am so grateful for the wealth of information that she provided me with during and after the Skin Care Course, which I have just completed. Joan, your time and effort that you have invested , in order to enrich my life and the lives of many others like me are highly appreciated. I would recommend this course to anyone who is trying to figure out where to start or which direction to take. After the end of this course, I feel empowered, confident and above all, I feel inspired to share my God-given gifts with the world. Joan, I wish you abundance in all areas of your life and a long happy and joyful life, so you can touch more lives with your gifts. Nyambura

    I have taken the Hair Care Course and was highly impressed with the in-depth and well organized training. I knew that I wanted to develop a full line of products, so I invested in the Natural Skin Care Course as well. Again, highly impressed. There is so much to learn, but it is easily presented in a way that is non-intimidating and fun. Joan is an excellent instructor and I could not be more thankful for this course. I have been wanting to do this for nearly 20 years, but did not know where to go. I am thankful to have found such an amazing resource. It has already enhanced my life in the most positive ways! Thank you Joan. You are truly the best! XO

    I just finished the Professional Natural Skin Care course, and it was fantastic! I learned so much! It was very informative, and I really appreciated being able to watch all the steps from beginning to end of each formulation. What also helped a tremendous amount was Joan’s dedication to detail, and stressing the importance of record keeping, as well as exactly what records need to be kept. At some point Canada and the US will most likely become regulated in the cosmetic industry, and it was a big help to be guided towards running a business in a way as if these countries were already regulated. When that time comes, I feel that I have the tools to be prepared instead of scrambling at the last minute. Thank you Joan! Great course!

    I have enrolled for the 8 weeks guided courses . I am from London and we do have a few courses in UK, so was not to sure if I was not better off doing a course in the UK.
    But it was the best thing I have done . I thoroughly enjoyed the course with a great and the kindest teacher I ever had ( Joan Morais ). The course was well structured and flowing (apologies about my English , I am French living in the UK), clear and to the point . I have enjoyed the Q& A seminars which were really helpful . Joan has been very accessible when needed . I am now more confident in making my own skin care products .
    I can’t thank Joan enough for her great teaching and kindness.
