YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO LEARN. This mid-July, I had a chance to join this 3 days workshop by Skin Dewi. It’s a local skincare brand, and the owner, Dewi Kauw guided us (like about 20 of us in each workshop) throughout those three days.
So, what did I learn over those 3 days? Pretty much a lot! See my pics below to see what I’ve done throughout the workshop.
Cleansing Oil. Yes, now I know how to actually formulate and make one. Check out that tiny weight scaler that I got to bring home. Cute, yes?
Personally, not a fan of ingredients with butter in it, but it is nice to know how they rawly look like. That cocoa butter on the right looks like white chocolate coins, don’t you think?
I have to admit, body butter was the hardest to make. Need some hand power to whisk them to perfection.
But I did it, my way! So proud of myself when I put the body butter inside these cute jars that look like Tatcha packaging. So gonna keep the jars!
The easiest to make: Lip Balm. Seriously, it was just mixing this and that, melt and pour inside the container. Voila, done!
And it was such a satisfaction when my formulation meet the PH 5 standard. I felt like a real chemist (LOL).
Learning about how to make emulsion. Not as hard as I thought. But, if you asked me, will I do my own skincare formula from now on, now that I’ve learned those things? The answer is: probably NOT (lol). But it’s super awesome to understand the ingredients and formulating stuffs (I felt like I was back in my high school days doing chemistry class).
At the end of the workshop, we were given the certificate from Skin Dewi. And we’ve got to go home with those ingredients left from the workshop. So yeah, maybe I will try to make my own facial mask if I had the time. Anyway, I felt blessed to be able to join this workshop, to learn about stuffs that I actually passionate about and met new friends along the way.
Here’s me with Dewi Kauw, the owner of Skin Dewi.
