"The best business course I have attended. Explained clearly what is required with examples and practical exercises in order that you can practise yourself. Course is set at an adequate pace not rushed through. Visual information as well as verbal together with clear written notes to take away with you. Explains the cosmetic products information requirements which is the most daunting part of setting up a soap and cosmetic business. Everyone was able to ask questions, small classes. I recommend this course to everyone as some courses do not provide sufficient information and you can leave with learning very little."  Paulette

"This is a great one day course for anyone thinking of setting up a soap/cosmetic business. Ruth has been there, done it and bought the T-shirt and so is able to pass on her first hand knowledge and experience, which she does patiently and clearly. There are very useful handouts available and practical exercises to help consolidate the information. I found the day to be fun, innovative and inspiring and I fully recommend it. Many thanks Ruth."  Maz

"A very informative and enjoyable day at the Soap and Cosmetics Business Course. I would definitely recommend Ruth's course if you are considering going into business, she has plenty of experience and knowledge of steps to take. Ruth gave comprehensive information in varying formats including practicals, leaving me feeling confident and well equipped for the next stage. Thank you Ruth." Lesley
