Pomades, Creams and Powders

About this Course

It's never been a better time to be a beauty entrepreneur. According to market research firm Euromonitor International, the beauty industry in the Middle East and Africa was estimated at about $20.4 billion in 2011. Of this figure, South Africa alone represented $3.9 billion; Nigeria and Kenya are second and third among sub-Saharan nations, with Kenya’s market totaling more than $260 million.

In today’s world, cosmetics have become a very basic need. Everyone, including poor people, will go out of their way to enhance the way they look, feel and smell.

Besides helping us with our personal hygiene, cosmetics have become vital to our self-esteem and largely determine how other people treat us and our ability to influence them.

It’s not a surprise that beauty and skin care products are the fastest selling items in Africa after food!

In this course, you wil be learning how to make pomades, creams and powders. Each of these is taught through a comprehensive and well-detailed video presented in a professional manner.


All materials and components required to make these items are explained in detail as well as the market names used when purchasing the raw materials used in making them. 

I believe that at the end of this course you will be confident and motivated to tap into this ever growing market of the cosmetics industry.
