Embark on a journey around the world and learn everything I know about plant oils from 20 + years of research, experimenting and hands on work product development and formulation.
The sheer number of plants that give us oils is staggering - check your grocery store next time and look for everything with a seed, from oatmeal to pomegranates.
Each plant imparts its own imprint on the oil pressed from its seeds, from the fatty acid makeup to antioxidants and other plant compounds.
Lipids Decoded will give you the full range of skills you need to create anhydrous skincare formulas! Anhydrous skincare is growing in popularity and for good reason. When you work with just lipids and carrier oils your formulas are naturally shelf stable so you can make gentle, preservative free skincare. Anhydrous oil combinations are naturally shelf stable (it is water and oil mixed that creates the breeding ground for bacteria) but there are lipids and methods that will extend the shelf life of oil blends and formulas even further! We will go into this more in module 5.
I absolutely love the info in the courses, Susan starts you out with a solid foundation of information about the chemical make up of the oils and why you use oils based on that information. She uses visual aids such as pie charts to assist in the breakdown of the chemical composition. I have found the information to be valuable and have often referred to the information when formulating.
You will get videos, clickable slide lessons and downloadable slides for offline study. Plus, 14 weeks of email support and live calls where you can get questions answered or just come to listen in. (The calls are recorded for all students).
While I am often asked about course hours I hesitate to put a time stamp on the course! I encourage you instead to work at YOUR pace. Some people pick up the chemistry, others (my self included) need time to experience, experiment and study for the concepts to take root.
Lipids Decoded includes over 100 individual oil profiles and reference materials for ongoing study. When you enroll in Lipids Decoded you have permanent access to the course and all updated future updates and editions! (no upgrade fees).
Once you complete the course modules and and turn in a 'final assignment' (it's fun I promise!) I'll have your Certificate of Completion ready for you.

"I completed the Lipids Decoded course in 2017. I found this course full of great information and in depth facts about many of the different carrier oils. I also bought the book 'Power of the Seed' which is great! With the course and book, it has inspired me to buy many carrier oils which I test and mix at home now. I just love them on my skin! I understand the fatty acid profiles and by looking at these can tell what the oil will feel like and how it will penetrate the skin. I just love this information and would one day love to work with the oils I make. I will always remain a part of the Lipids Decoded community! Thanks Susan!"
I am a french pharmacist and have studied in several universities in France. Your (Susan's) knowledge about the lipid world is incredible. I have learned a lot with pleasure. I use your knowledge every day at work. I thank you a lot for all !!! Best regards from France.

All joking aside, this course is such a magnificent work of art in its depth, breath, visual beauty, and top notch narration, that it was difficult for me to come up with the words to describe how impressed that I was and am with it.

I love studying with Susan. She has created groundbreaking material that is fun to learn. Her work has been critical to me to uncover my special passion using lipids in combination with other additions to a multitude of topical preparations.
If you’re serious about developing your skills with carrier oil selection or even more complex Lipid based products, Susan Parker’s workshops and materials can’t be beat!!!
Finished - I just finished the course, and I want to say thank you soooooo much, Susan. You've put together a stellar course. I read the book a while back and this course just added to the knowledge I obtained from that book. I have really enjoyed the course and will be taking some of your other courses in the future for sure.
Not only will l be here to support you in your educational journey along with your fellow students, the oils are here for you too!
I learn from the oils every day and as you get to know them they become friends. With the oils at your fingertips, your options for creating, crafting and refining everything from luxurious facial oils to infused herbal balms, are limitless.
I invite you to join me,

PS: Since 2017 I have been partnering with my daughter Olivia to bring these courses, research projects and programs to you and the rest of the lipid world.
