The workshop was informative and easy-to-follow, carried out in a fun relaxing environment.  I've also learned how to formulate my own natural products that work best for my skin.

Hi, I’m Afriyie Donkor a natural cosmetic formulator, an author, a consultant and the woman behind Make Your Own Skincare. I’m on a mission to help skinprenuers just like you build awesome skin care brands, to create on trend products that sell.


You’re on this website so chances are you’ve caught the skin care bug like I did over 15 years ago. You’ve probably been making beauty products for friends and family and have been told on more than one occasion, “You should sell this full time.”


Keep reading if this is you!

Why hire me or take my advice?

I started a successful business 15 years ago formulating and selling natural, organic skincare products. Fast forward 15 years I am now teaching other people how to be a success in the cosmetic industry.


As a skin care business consultant, brand consultant, and a qualified coach (CIPD Diploma). I am not just another business coach. I eat, breathe and sleep natural beauty. I am so excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to start your own successful business.


Nothing makes me happier than talking all things natural beauty and helping my clients find their “aha” moment. I walk the walk and believe that what I put on my body matters to my health and environment. I still supply my products to beauty stores and spas, and my bathroom is full of potions and lotions sent to me by my clients!
