Skincare & Soaps 101 with Emilie Toups

Thursday, October 6, 2022

Warren County Fairgrounds

Front Royal, Virginia



Ready to tackle cleaning up your skincare, soaps, and personal care products? Learn to read ingredients on labels and what to avoid as well as what ingredients to look for and how to make products yourself. Ever wonder what the ingredients’ actual purpose is in the products and what makes products work well? Learn to break down the ingredients lists and read labels like a pro. Experience learning how to take ingredients you already have in your kitchens and pantries and create products you and your family can use on a daily basis. 

Does this sound like something you and your family will need? Founder and creator of Toups and Co Organics, Emilie Toups, will show you step by step how to make personal care products that function and will not impart toxins into you or your family’s bodies.

Using certified organic ingredients we will make soap, tallow balms, dry shampoo, and other products in the make-and-take workshop.

COST: $185
CLASS SIZE: Unlimited
WHAT’S INCLUDED: 1 make-and-take product
