Not all information given by the owner is correct. Requests of how to obtain insurance for public use of the products was negated and referral to their Facebook Page given for further information

I watched two recent webinars which F.B. was holding to promote their Entrepreneur qualification and the Diploma. In the latter case, the director stated she had 5 of the following persons employed at her company. A herbalist Persons trained in the pharmaceutical business, and professional formulaters. These were not her exact words, but implied her employment of experts, pharmacists and professionally qualified cosmetic formulators. During both webinars, there was constant reference to the number of people who had signed up with a number clock for registrations ticking in the background during the one webinar.. This woman employs highly skilled and good body language technique, with maximum pressure sales strategies, using immense positivity, to generate business to people whom she cleverly persuades that they cannot miss the amazing opportunity to enrol. .

User's recommendation: Not recommended unless for personal or small business use.

Dissatisfied with how Formula Botanica does business

Update by user Jul 07, 2021

You cannot prepare for your module with materials you need to purchase until they let you open it. This causes a bunch of wasted time in the course curriculum trying to obtain products needed to formulate.

Original review updated by user Jul 07, 2021
i paid for their course up front with a one time payment. Because of reasons beyond my control, I couldn't complete the course in a timely manner. They gave me an extension, which was impossible for me to complete since I hadn't really started the courses in the first place. Nevertheless, I thought since the program was paid in full, I should have been able to at least download and keep all course materials for self-study, but I couldn't. I was completely locked out of the website. Therefore, I feel ripped off.

User's recommendation: Don't waste your hard earned money.

Terrible

If you take the Formula Botanica course and you try to pass yourself off as an “international lecturer” or “organic skincare authority” in the company of professional cosmetics formulators, you will soon feel embarrassed and stupid by your lack of knowledge. The tutors and directors are not chemists. Their diploma is not “credible” and anyone who claims they are a graduate of that “class” - good luck - the “diploma” means nothing but that you paid a few thousand dollars

Formula Botanica

I've been to a workshop from a licensed Formula Botanica tutor, who apparently did all the courses they have to offer. It was terrible, she was not even able to answer simple questions, the skin care products and ingredients were nothing more than blending essential oils together (anyone can do that, you don't need to go to a workshop) and you can buy much better cosmetics off the shelf. We made a face masque and a serum, but they were both very basic and I doubt people would pay money to buy them.I think Formula Botanica should actually be teaching aromatherapy courses, not a cosmetic chemistry school. A few of the people at the workshop seemed to like it, but they hadn't ever made any skin products before, they didn't seem to know much. For the people who had some previous experience, it was a big let down. It was quite embarrassing to listen to some of the statements the tutor was making, and some of the answers to various questions. I won't be going to anymore Formula Botanica workshops and I certainly won't be doing any courses at the Formula Botanica School.

I agree - Formula Botanica relies on beginners who don't know any better.

Formula Botanica is a program written by beginners, for beginners. Lorraine Dallmeier claims that the Formula Botanica course can turn you into an “organic skincare expert formulator and international lecturer”, “an organic skincare authority, entrepreneur and...

Today is Tuesday 28 September 2021. I have been reading a lot of that and it could very well be good information.

I have listened to her speak and not sure of a few things. Never the less, this is a free class and I will finish it. I have spent monies on ingredients and you are right about timing. How can you take a class without the items you need.

Tomorrow will be the last class and I still have not received it all. I have also asked a question about timing, do I need to wait two days like Larraine has done or can I mix all in the same day.

And the question stared a few days ago and I have been bounced around. I figure in the time it takes to send me to a new address they could have answered yes or no.
