Hey there,

I'm Susan M Parker and I am here to guide you in your work with the lipid oils and carriers that make up such a rich and important part of skincare and skincare formulation. 

Since my book Power of the Seed: Your Guide to Oils for Health & Beauty was published in 2014 the world of oils has been growing rapidly. As new oils become available to us, I find there is always more to research. The Lipid Formulators Membership is a place where I can share my new research, formulations I'm working on and more. And we have our monthly Q&A calls which are a lot of fun. 

Plus I get to work with my daughter Olivia every day, as she is a big part of making these programs possible.

The picture here is Olivia and me in Spain in October 2018 when we went over to teach in Madrid and then visit the wild olive relative, Acebuche in Jaen, Spain.
