Warm apple cider in steaming mugs, cinnamon wafting through the air, cooling temperatures, leaf peeping (should you be so lucky as to live in a deciduously-blessed area), and a mad dash towards the holidays. Yup, fall has most definitely arrived. So why are we talking about next spring? Well, May 20, 2014 marks the start of our wildly popular 3-day (3 ½ if you come in early for pre-conference seminars) Annual Conference in Tucson, Arizona. And the early-early bird special expires in the next month. Being of the mind that discounts are good, we don’t want the potential craziness of the next few months to prevent you from taking advantage of discounted conference rates (that may cause wailing and gnashing of teeth and nobody wants to be responsible for that or the clean-up).
To that end, take a break from the body butter whipping, soapmaking, packaging, and paperwork to check out a few of the speakers you’ll see at the 2014 conference. We’re proud to welcome speakers covering ground ranging from soapmaking to business topics. Today, we’re highlighting a few of the speakers covering cosmetic topics in Tucson next spring.
First up, Holly Port, Bath Fizzy Queen of Lotion Bar Cafe, who is ‘da bomb’, will show YOU how to keep bath fizzy production from getting you down in Mastering the Bath Bomb.
What might you need after a dip in the tub? How about a luscious whipped butter? Marla Bosworth, CEO and President of Back Porch Soap Company, will show you how to make butters minus the meltdown and more in Formulating Fantastic Body Scrubs & Whipped Butters.
A good scrub and butter calls for a little sensory pampering with some eau de cologne. Or perhaps you just need a killer essential oil blend for your next product. Lori Nova Endres, founder and co-owner of The Nova Studio, LLC will make sure you and your customers smell good in Making Natural Perfume & Cologne 101.
Finally, we are excited to introduce Christy Rose, owner and creative director of KBShimmer Bath and Body. Indie nail polish is exploding in popularity; Christy will give you a peek of the industry in Nailing New Trends: An Intro to Handmade Nail Polish.
