We’ve wanted to introduce you to Pascale from Blue Labelle for a long time, as she was one of Formula Botanica’s first ever students back in 2013!

Back in those days we only had a few dozen students and all of our course materials were sent by email. Things have changed dramatically at Formula Botanica since those days. Since that time Pascale has also seen her lovely business continue to blossom so we’re really excited to chat to Pascale in this interview.

If you're a green beauty blogger, it's not always easy to know which questions to ask artisan brands when they want to work with you. Are their formulations safe? Do they comply with the law? Are they working with ingredients you would want to use on your skin?

In our latest blog post, we worked together with our friend Sarita Coren at The Hub of Clean Living to come up with the 7 questions all green beauty bloggers should ask artisan brands about their formulations.

What do you think? Do you agree with these questions?

In our latest blog post, we speak to Nicky Lamba from NESARA by Nicky. She is based in Pune in India and we had the huge pleasure of meeting Nicky when she attended our 2016 live Formula Botanica student conference in London last year.

Nicky aspires to extract the best from nature’s vast repertoire to create fresh and pure formulations. She also wants to embed the principles of Ayurveda in her business. Be inspired by Nicky and learn more about this new Indian natural skincare business.

Many of our students come to Formula Botanica asking about beeswax emulsions. ​If you follow DIY recipes online, then I'm sure you've come across beeswax 'emulsions' before - blends that contain oil, water, and beeswax to create creams or lotions. But do these emulsions actually work?

After years of telling people that beeswax is not an emulsifier, we decided to put this statement to the test. We located four of the most popular beeswax emulsions on the internet, which our Cosmetic Chemist Elham then prepared and put through stability testing in the lab.

​Read our latest blog to see whether our beeswax 'emulsions' withstood all the different tests that Elham put them through... You might be surprised by the results.
