You want to offer your clients professional-grade products that contain potent natural ingredients.

The only problem is…you’re not a formulator, herbalist, or chemist. Where the heck do you start?

You love the idea of selling high-end botanical skincare products in your practice or online, but you’re busy seeing clients and running your business. You don’t have the time to go get a science degree or sit at your computer for HOURS trying to sort through DIY recipes and research all the legalities of creating and selling your own products. You also don’t have the time to do it all yourself and wear all the hats.

It’s overwhelming!

What if you could gain the skills you need to create products that are safe AND effective, learn what you need to about business and legal, AND get the support and resources to launch your first botanical skincare product… in less than 6 months?

Which of these little voices has been in your head, holding you back from going for your dream?

Problem #1: “I wish it wasn’t so complicated to formulate and preserve skincare without hiring an expensive consultant or needing a fully equipped laboratory, and I DEFINITELY don’t want the FDA knocking at my door.

Problem #2: “I’ve heard absolute horror stories about DIY skincare growing mold, or containing allergens that cause horrible skin reactions and I’m really worried that that could happen to my clients (and me) since I don’t know what I’m doing.”

Problem #3: “I’m busy enough as it is, and already don’t make enough money with the services I currently offer. Should I REALLY be starting a new skincare line now, with the limited resources I have?

Hi, I’m Rachael–your teacher!​

My mission is to help passionate, holistic skincare pros like you create a THRIVING business and help your clients get results faster that last longer, by offering your OWN professional herbal skincare line, and customized skincare products.

I saw the power of herbal skincare after my acne disappeared once I formulated my own products, customized to what MY skin needed, and adopted a healthy lifestyle.

I had spent thousands of dollars and wasted YEARS of my life suffering when useless products, dermatologist appointments, and medications failed to clear my acne.

My own customized herbal skincare is what got the job done.

When I first started, and saw how many companies use toxic chemicals in their products, it blew my mind that the industry was so unregulated.

Big cosmetics brands sell products for generic skin types, instead of focusing on our individual needs.

So I was determined to prove there’s a better way. A way to design effective products for real people – not skin types.

So I created Create Your Skincare to be the ONLY course you need to learn skincare formulation and the business strategies to create your own signature skincare line that WORKS and SELLS.

Andrea de la Fuente, Piedra Caliza

“Create Your Skincare Pro was more than I expected, I truly recommend it. It helped me not only with my formulations, but with my business and mindset. It was very organized, complete, and well-paced so I could experiment with the formulas. Thanks Rachael for being so patient and answering all my questions!”

Andrea de la Fuente, Piedra Caliza

What if you could create quality non-toxic products + have a thriving biz that’ll provide you with…


Create Your Skincare Pro®

The ONLY online custom skincare formulation program specifically designed for skincare and wellness pros

decorative filigree

Get formulation and business skills in ONE COURSE

It takes expert knowledge, practical skills, AND business strategies to create a professional herbal skincare line that WORKS and actually SELLS

This is your opportunity to get expert knowledge on skincare formulation, ingredients, emulsification and product preservation.

Gain practical skills to create products yourself OR have them professionally manufactured.

Learn business strategies that will turn your passion into a profitable profession–all from a licensed skincare pro who’s already trialed and errored this, and created a successful business out of custom, herbal skincare.

It’s time to make your dream skincare line real.

Create Your Skincare Pro gives you everything you need to understand how to choose the right ingredients; formulate products that you can customize for anyone or scale up into a signature line, and build a thriving brand–in just six months.

Here’s what you get inside Create Your Skincare Pro:

Level 1: Foundations of Boutique Skincare Design

In this level, you’ll get to know your ingredients and supplies, and learn foundational skincare formulation and business basics. These products are the perfect transition from theory to practice.

By the end of Level 1, you will feel like a badass boutique skincare designer because you’ll have created two simple cleansers, a toner, and a serum. You will be confident in your ability to do this. You will also have started structuring your business and branding, and if you ever wondered how you’d ever have time for this, don’t you worry–by the end of Level 1, you will feel like an expert in time management!

Level 2: Elements of Herbal Preparations, Regulations, and Profitability

Have you been worried about the legalities and regulatory considerations involved with creating your own skincare line? Or wondered how to source the best ingredients without breaking the bank, and how to make sure you price your products correctly?

Well that’s exactly what you’ll learn in Level 2! You’ll learn about ingredient sourcing, and how to know if something is high quality or not. You’ll learn about herbalism, aromatherapy, and how to create your own extracts. You’ll also identify your ideal customer, and know how to price your products profitably. By the end of Level 2, you’ll know how to create decadent balms, butters, and whipped souffles, and feel confident about how to create and market your products compliantly.

Level 3: Demystify Natural Emulsions, Preservation, and Product Testing

I’m gonna be honest with you. There’s a reason why so many clean skincare lines only have oil-based cleansers, serums, and moisturizers. It’s because so many inexperienced formulators get freaked out about emulsifiers, preservatives, and testing for pH and microbes, that they just don’t bother including them in their lines. And then their customers miss out on the amazing benefits and textures you can only get from creating emulsions and gels!

Well, I’m putting a stop to that in Level 3, because I’m going to teach you how to create emulsions that are stable (meaning the oil and water won’t separate), safe (meaning they won’t grow funky bacteria, mold, or yeast), and effective! By the end of Level 3, you’ll know how to create luxurious and versatile herbal creams, lotions, and gels. You’ll also know how to emulsify, preserve, and test your products properly. You’ll learn to assess and track your business wherever it’s at, and get a crash course into your website, brand image, messaging, and communication, so you can feel confident (and not have to worry about over-paying) when working with copywriters, web developers, and designers.

Level 4: Refine Your Skincare Line and Your Business

Worried that the products you create won’t be professional enough–or effective enough–to be used in spa treatments and sold at high-end salons, spas, and stores? Have you been wondering how you’ll scale up your production from your kitchen to a manufacturer, and get your products out to more people than just your current clients?

Worry no more, because, by the end of Level 4, you’ll formulate masks, spot treatments, exfoliants, additional herbal preparations, and learn how to color your products naturally so that your skincare line offers everything–and more–that the professional lines offer for both treatments and retail. You’ll also refine your business plan and turn your ideas into an eye-tantalizing brand, and learn organizational strategies to manage your time and money as effectively as possible. You’ll also have clarity on your manufacturing and distribution options so that you won’t have to be afraid of what to do when your operation outgrows your kitchen! You will be confident that you’re doing what’s best for your business so you can be successful.

Dr. Ellerie Nagy, ND, L.Ac , Dr. Ellerie Beauty Medicine & Self-Care Rituals

As someone who is committed to holistic skincare, high quality clean ingredients, and has a big vision, I knew I needed help from a seasoned professional. I’ve had friends gift me handmade skincare gifts which have gone moldy and rancid. Gross! I needed someone with the same holistic values and knew could teach me non-toxic methods of preservation. When deciding to become a Create Your Skincare Pro Master Intensive student, I knew it was a commitment. It’s been worth every penny. Her course has so much information! That part alone is amazing–after all she has been teaching this course for years before the pandemic. As a Pro Master Intensive student, I have weekly calls with her. Rachael has been there every step of the process for me. She never ceases to impress me with not only her knowledge of formulating skincare but also her knowledge of sourcing quality ingredients, her business savvy, marketing and media knowledge, and her knowledge of EWG standards, Made Safe, and the other clean certifications. If you’re wanting to start making skincare for clients or launching a new skincare business, Rachael Pontillo goes above and beyond to help bring your dreams to reality.

Vicki Parra, LE

“The Create Your Skincare Pro Master Intensive is just that-intense! It’s a good type of intense though. It will help you launch your products much quicker than if you were formulating on your own. Rachael’s knowledge of ingredients and how to combine them for the max results is unparalleled. I was able to get my products out there quicker than I thought was possible with her help. I have a level of confidence in my products that I would not have had without her help. Not only do my clients have high expectations, I do as well. My products have to be able to deliver the results we both expect. With Rachael’s help, I can build formulations that are able to deliver the results my clients are looking for. Custom skincare is one of the hardest things to do as formulations are constantly evolving. Rachael’s help allowed me to build my brand in months versus years it would have taken me on my own.”

Neda Lodato Create Your Skincare Student

“I benefited so much from this experience. I gained so much more confidence in my abilities as a skincare formulator and also learned to formulate many new products. I didn’t realize there were so many different ways to formulate a cleanser! The support from Rachael was rather impressive. I felt supported and encouraged every step of the way. I was surprised by how fast she responded to all the questions I had. There is so much valuable material in this course. I know I will keep revisiting this course again and again. Thank you again Rachael!”

So, What’s Your Investment?

Here’s the thing. You could do this on your own. You could piece together other formulation and business classes. You could hire a consultant.

And you could be totally OK with wasting away in Googleville, spending 2X the money on random classes, spending $45000+ for a consultant to formulate just ONE product for you (and that doesn’t include ingredients, packaging, labels, design, manufacturing, packing, fulfillment, etc).

Or you can get a COMPLETE formulation and business education in one course, for a fraction of that cost.

Abby Mason Create Your Skincare Student
“I was blown away at how easy Rachael makes it for her students to create skincare, she lays everything out with detailed, easy-to-follow steps. One of my favorite things about the program is that Rachael is so hands on. Anytime there is a question posted to our Facebook group, she is right on it with a response. She truly cares about spreading the message that amazing skincare is all about learning what ingredients work for your unique skin and that you can make incredible products on your own. I feel like I have launched a spa experience right in my own home. I cannot recommend this program enough! Anyone who is fed up with trying to find ways (usually with expensive treatments and products) to have beautiful skin, needs to look no further. This course has you covered! ”

Check Out Some of Our Successful Create Your Skincare Pro Alumni:

“I solved my own skin issues and started my line!”

“After my mother’s leukemia diagnosis led my family towards a more holistic lifestyle, and my own struggles with finding the right skincare for my eczema and blemishes, I knew I had to take matters into my own hands. Through Create Your Skincare Pro, I was not only able to find the solution for my own skin issues, but I also developed a strong passion for organic, unrefined ingredients, which became the foundation for my skincare line.”

–Tasha Hetke, LE, founder of Native2Nature Skin Care

“Aestheticians should learn formulation.”

“I was an ingredient geek but only from what I could find on the Internet. I wanted to learn more. I didn’t just want to buy products from someone else, stick them in a jar, and sell them. My biggest concern was being able to understand what I was asking for in a product. You really need to understand the ingredients. The conversations, the charts, and the tools Rachael provided really gave me the ability to create synergistic blends that work well and get results.”

–Richard Merrill, LE, Richard Merrill Consulting

“I wanted to learn advanced formulation.”

“Mass-marketed products are made very quickly with a machine and an hourly worker who’s just there to pick up a paycheck. When artisans work on their products, it’s about the love in their hands. It’s about the intention. I’ve taken some courses where I felt like I had to have a PhD in cosmetic chemistry to learn, but Rachael makes it very approachable.”

–Jennifer Devlin-Waller, LE, Celtic Complexions Luxury Artisan Skincare

“I now offer custom skincare to my clients.”

“Rachael, you are my all-time favorite mentor, instructor, and business friend because you allowed me to take what you have taught, and use it in my own unique way to support women’s skin and health. And you didn’t mind me being ‘outside the box!’ Thank you!”

–Kymberly Keniston-Pond, Clinical Aromatherapist, Author, founder of Kymberly’s Beauty Bar

Got Questions? Here Are Some Answers:

When does the course start?

We offer a rolling enrollment with the option to go at your own pace, or follow our live schedule during the school year. Our live calls run from September and through June to give you time to learn, practice and implement. We take a month-long winter-break so you can continue to implement or have a break too.

Do you teach us how to create products from scratch or do you use premade bases?

All products you’ll learn to make and sell in Create Your Skincare Pro are made from scratch.

Will I learn how to make products to treat specific skin conditions like acne, rosacea, melasma, etc?

While many of the natural ingredients we use in have years of anecdotal and clinical evidence of efficacy against specific conditions, we do not claim that the products we teach prevent or treat any illness, condition, or disease. It is illegal to claim that a an ingredient or cosmetic that is not also FDA-approved as a drug can prevent, treat, or cure a disorder or disease.

Will I learn how to make sunscreen?

No. Sunscreen ingredients—even natural mineral ones—are regulated as drugs by the FDA. We only teach products that fall under the FDA’s definition of cosmetics in Create Your Skincare.

What happens if I can’t make the live calls?

No worries! I’ll record all the VIP calls and you’ll have access to those recordings for 6 months. You can ask your questions ahead of time and I’ll answer them during the calls or in our private student group.

Do I need to buy ingredients and supplies?

Yes you do if you are a Pro Essentials or Pro VIP student. You’ll get a shopping list for what’s needed to make the products in each level of the course, so you know exactly what to buy. I’ll give you recommendations for my favorite places to get your ingredients, plus you’ll get exclusive student discounts to some of my favorite suppliers. If you are a Pro Master Intensive student in the US, I will provide you with a starter kit of ingredients and supplies.

Can’t I just look up recipes online?

Sure you can—but this course is about way more than just the recipes. Looking up recipes online is time consuming, and you never know if the recipes will actually be right for your skin or for the person you’re making products for, or if the person who wrote those recipes actually understands the skin, ingredients, formulation, safety, and testing. In Create Your Skincare Pro, you’ll not only learn the master formulae, but you’ll also learn how to choose the right ingredients for different skin combinations AND how to make changes to the texture, consistency, fragrance, etc. to create customized products. You’ll learn how to actually formulate with intention with my proven methodologies, rather than just following recipes.

I work with clients who have allergies and very sensitive skin - what if they react to the ingredients?

You will learn to formulate using ingredients that are specific to the individual needs of your clients and ideal customers. However, reactions are always possible, so if you or your client have a known allergy like tree nuts or a specific botanical ingredient, we’ll work together to simply select an alternative ingredient that makes sense for the person, and for that particular formulation. If you have specific ingredient questions or concerns, please contact me.

How long do I have access to the course?

You have lifetime access to the downloadable and video curriculum in Levels 1-4, the Bonus Module, Webinar Library, and the Create Your Skincare Alumni Facebook group for life. Pro VIP and Pro Master Intensive students have access to the weekly live calls and their recordings for 6 months. After that time, if you would like to continue to have access to the weekly live calls and their recordings, you may purchase another 6 months of access for a reduced rate. If you are a CYS Pro VIP or Pro Master Intensive student, you also have lifetime access to the Advanced Skin Sequencing® Course.

If I change my mind, can I get a refund?

You have three (3) days following your enrollment to change your mind, cancel your enrollment, and receive a full refund for Create Your Skincare Pro. Since this is an online course, you’ll receive instant access to the Create Your Skincare Homeroom, private Facebook group, and course downloads. Because these materials are delivered digitally, refunds aren’t possible after the initial three days. I know you’re going to love this course and I’ve made great efforts to structure it in a way that ensures your enjoyment and success. Because I want you to be successful in Create Your Skincare, there’s a TON of support available from me before, during, and even after the course–plus you’ll have lifetime access to the course materials and the Alumni Facebook group.

Do you guarantee results for my skin or business?

Though Create Your Skincare Pro teaches information that may be used to improve the appearance of one’s skin; as well as earn or increase income, we offer no guarantee for skin results and what we teach is for educational purposes only. It is not intended to diagnose, prevent, or treat any disease or condition of the skin. It is not a substitute for medical advice or treatment from a licensed physician or healthcare provider. We also cannot guarantee any earning potential, nor are we responsible for lost income. All students are solely responsible for their own skin results, education, income, and career advancement.

Do I need to live in the US to take the course?

No, but I can best support students from the United States and Canada in Create Your Skincare Pro. If you are outside of the US, please be aware that there might be certain limitations to consider. Though most of my preferred suppliers are in the US, some ship internationally and I can also connect you with other international suppliers outside the US if need be. It is important to note though that the course is taught in English, and all calls happen in Eastern Time. Also, any material taught about cosmetic regulation and compliance is primarily taught according to US FDA regulations. If you are an international student, you are responsible and required to obtain ingredients and supplies for the course, and while we can provide some guidance, we cannot be responsible for providing ingredient sourcing internationally. You are also 100% responsible to follow the national and local laws of the country in which you manufacture, as well as the countries in which you sell your products.

Will I receive continuing education hours or credits of a certification upon course completion?

There isn’t currently a single “official” organization that oversees and accredits online courses like Create Your Skincare. There are several distance learning organizations that offer their own accreditations for online courses in general, but they are not necessarily industry-specific and therefore do not guarantee that a course has high quality content. However, all Create Your Skincare Pro VIP and Pro Master Intensive students have the option to become certified as a Boutique Skincare Designer and also earn their Advanced Skin Sequencing® certification upon completion of the main Create Your Skincare Pro course, passing parts 1 and 2 of the exams, and meeting all certification requirements.

Is this course for people who just want to make products at home or is it for professionals who want to create products for their clients and/or existing product lines?

Create Your Skincare Pro is primarily for licensed aestheticians, health coaches, or other beauty and wellness professionals who work with skincare customers or clients in some manner. We also welcome and support skincare entrepreneurs and individuals who are in this to start or grow a skincare business.

Kim Handy - Create Your Skincare Testimonial

I signed up for Create Your Skincare because I wanted to get professional and high quality knowledge that I could use in creating my own skincare as well as for my clients. Before Create Your Skincare, I was really frustrated because I had taken skincare formulation courses in the past, but for some reason I did not have the confidence I needed to move forward with creating custom products for myself and others. I have never trusted the DIY recipes on beauty blogs and YouTube and I did not want to be a recipe follower. I wanted to create high-end and high performing products and I wanted to learn from a real expert.

Ultimately, I trusted Rachael to provide this information to me and she definitely delivered. I learned so much in this course. I would recommend this course to anyone who does not have a chemist or science background, like me. I was not intimidated by the course at all and it was not difficult to understand. I have gained the confidence as a professional skincare formulator that I was looking for. Now I sell my products to the public.”
