Cosmetic bases are base toiletries which you can tailor to produce your own personalised products
The bases can be used alone for sensitive skin, but the special formulation ensures you can add essential oils, carrier oils and other cosmetic ingredients to produce products for your own particular skin type, indulgence or commonly for resale as your own brand or use in treatments.
Customers purchasing cosmetic bases range from home enthusiasts making their families skincare naturally, therapists making products for their clients or Spas using our bases to create treatments and aftersales products.
Ethically we encourage the use of essential oils, vegetable based oils and other natural ingredients for blending in our cosmetic bases, however you are not limited to using just these, you can also use synthetic fragrances, colourings and ingredients.
