At Purodem, we specialise in using pure, natural and organic aromatherapy essential oils and raw ingredients to help create bespoke prescription skincare, aromatherapy remedies, as well as to help others to learn how to make their own skin care products.
I have created courses and workshops with the aim of helping both professionals, hobbyists and D.I.Y skincare enthusiasts interested expanding their knowledge and practice. Helping them to branch out into making their own skin and hair care preparations whilst also helping them to reduce the amount of chemicals they use and dispose of into our water systems and landfill on a daily basis.
The inspiration behind Purodem comes from my passion for people, the environment, education and sharing my knowledge and experience of aromatherapy essential oils, formulating with natural ingredients and creating natural, organic skincare.
Whilst working as a beauty therapist I became increasingly aware and concerned about some of the ingredients that I found in the products I was being recommended. Discovering the number of unnatural chemicals in many ‘mainstream’ beauty products, I decided to explore the possibility of making my own range of natural and organic skincare products free of these unnecessary chemicals. Through research, this led me to Aromantic and the teachings of natural skincare by Kolbjorn Borseth. I studied the manufacturing process of making skincare gaining an extensive knowledge into the process, and through further study in the industry how essential oils can be used to help aid the skin in a natural way. I later became a periodic course tutor for Aromantic from 2009 until 2017, teaching courses for them in London & Scotland.
By the time of opening my beauty salon in 2007, Beauty Boo-tique in Frimley Green, Camberley, Surrey, I had developed my own range of natural and organic skincare, Beauty Boo-tique, consisting of cleansers, day & night moisturisers, hand & foot balms and serums used and developed within salon treatments. In 2017, I sold the beauty salon to concentrate on my product range, aromatherapy treatments, and teaching others how to make their own natural products.
Purodem is here for everyone from salon owners venturing into creating their own brand of day or night moisturisers, foot, hand and body creams/butters/masks, and for all aromatherapists, herbalists and beauty professionals wishing to increase revenue and decrease waste, whilst offering loyal clients something wholesome and unique. To home hobbyists, D.I.Y cosmetic enthusiasts and those looking for a career change or enhancement, CPD, crafters, artisans and those looking for a fun and new learning experience day out.
