DIY Skincare Workshop: Natural Deodorant & Facial Oil (Jun 13th)



1247 Dundas Street West, Toronto, Canada.


Ever been curious about the ingredients in your natural products? Overwhelmed with all the misinformation about "toxic" ingredients? Or just tired of switching between products without understanding how they work, and unsure of what all these "free-from" claims are about?

It's time to turn curiosity into knowledge at our latest DIY Natural Deodorant & Facial Oil workshop! At Make This Universe, we want to make the science of skincare more accessible by walking you through how to formulate your very own product, starting with DIY Natural Deodorant and ending with a totally customized oil-based Facial Serum! 

What you get:

Wether you're looking for a zero waste, plastic-free, unscented or vegan natural skincare, our curated selection of 100% naturally-derived ingredients will allow you to create a truly custom Deodorant, followed by a facial oil targeted to your skin's needs.

At our June 13th workshop, our founder will be guiding the class through our flexible professionally-formulated recipe, explaining each of our vegan and cruelty free ingredients, followed by an intro to basic perfumery to add your own signature scent to your natural deodorant!

You'll be walking away with 2 oz. natural deodorant formulated for you, as well as our not-so-secret recipe to use and tweak at home.

As a two product workshop, after your deodorant begins to set up, you'll have the chance to custom create a 30ml facial oil. 

Usually valued at over $30, you'll get to craft a serum from a choice of 10 different premium botanical oils, targeted towards your skin's unique needs. Whether you're looking for something moisturizing, clarifying, balancing or age defying, we have something for every body.
