Food-based Skincare and DIY Food Mask Workshop with SCHMEAR

Food-based Skincare and DIY Food Mask Workshop with SCHMEAR

“At SCHMEAR, our vision is to provide simple, honest, and 100% food-based skincare products that help people feel great in their own skin. We believe the standards we have for the food we consume can also be applicable for personal care products we use on ourselves. After all, if ingredients are not good enough to consume, then why should they be good enough for your skin?”

In this hands-on natural skincare DIY workshop, you’ll have an intro to 100% food-based skincare brand, SCHMEAR Naturals, and their line of natural face masks and oils. You’ll learn about common ingredients found in conventional skincare products and how SCHMEAR is innovating to create products free from synthetic preservatives, emulsifiers and alcohols. We will also be exploring some do and don’ts for DIY using ingredients from your kitchen.

To end off the workshop, we will have a DIY mask making session using some common kitchen ingredients such as avocados, bananas, honey and more. Attendees can use their own mask during the workshop and bring home the leftovers in your provided jar!

Please come prepared

  • A pen to take notes

  • Your inner mad scientist

  • A fresh, clean, ‘mask ready’ face

This workshop is open to ages 12 and up and there are limited seats available!
