does your insurance cover you for making your own products?

I would either use a ready mixed non-setting masque suitable for the skin type or mix regular clay ingredients that you would have learnt with at college (calamine, kaolin, magnesium) and add drinking chocolate or cocoa powder in sufficient (not too excessive) quantities to make it smell & look like chocolate. You can't do any harm as long as you carry out a normal consultation.
You can also just mix the drinking choc powder with water to a paste consistency.
* Incidentally this is what a very well known spa uses when they 'run out' of the chocolate body masque in the Chocolate & champagne wrap!

There are literally loads of recipes on t'intenet, most fairly easy, some quite messy.

As has already been mentioned, I'd be inclined to check with your insurance you're covered to mix up your own, especially given the clients are youngsters (worth double checking you're covered for this too actually).

Failing that, buy some in that's already made up & perhaps where you just need to add water or some other liquid :)

Could I ask what the difference would be from an insurance purpose to you mixing choc powder and water at home as suggested above or buying in a branded powder mix and adding water to it please?

Don't do skin stuff so don't really know lol

Not 100% sure from an insurance point of view as each company will probably have their own guidelines as to what you can & can't do. An individual would need to check their policy to see if they were covered or not but assuming they did conventional powder & liquid masks at college there generally shouldn't be an issue.

What I would say the main issue is, as mentioned earlier in the thread, a spa passing off a luxurious chocolate wrap if literally only cocoa powder & water was used! Can't imagine many clients being too chuffed if they knew that!

The advantage a therapist will have with buying a branded product is that the guess work is taken out of the equation. All they need do is add water or some other liquidy product to form the mask. A bit like many of the companies that do algae masks which are a powder mixed with a liquid.

I can't speak for other companies & their ingredients but the chocolate mask that I make has far more to it than just cocoa powder :)

To the OP, my website that has been linked is geared for retail products. Should anyone wish to have trade price lists, they can use the contact form on my website :)

Some of my friends have actually nicknamed me Lindt as I'm now starting to specialise in chocolate face & body treatments plus chocolatey bath & body products.

Good! I'm struggling to keep away from the chocolate as it is without you posting these yummy pics!

It's just cruel!
