Skincare Training manual
The Shirley Price passion is to help the customers of Professional Aromatherapists feel and look great, every day. Shirley Price provides a first class collection of pure organic and naturally sourced Skin Care products. Most importantly, the passion Professional Aromatherapists
demonstrate for our products and the possibilities they provide sets Professional Aromatherapy Skincare apart every day.

Our commitment is also to provide Natural Beauty - paraben-free, innovative base formulas with beneficial botanical ingredients where possible — for proven, healthy-looking and naturally radiant skin. We work with suppliers to maintain a progressive range. We are proud that for 37 years our plant oils have been regarded as setting the standard of quality by which plant oils are judged.
Our aim is radiant beauty.

So whether your customers are seeking to simply cleanse, tone and moisturise or to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Shirley Price Aromatherapy Skin Care products offer nature’s finest ingredients.
Easy-to-Use and Easy-to-Share
At Shirley Price, our Therapists are our most valuable gift. Sp has trained over 6000 professional aromatherapists who work in a variety of settings from healthcare to first class wellness spas. It’s important that we not only provide leading, innovative
products, but also support the needs of thousands of our Therapists, who are working to make their dreams come true.
Time is precious to everyone, so it is also important that our products are not just easy to use, but that they’re also
easy to share. In this guide, you will learn about our advanced skin care formulas, plus simple routines, tips and the
knowledge you need to make sharing easy.
At Shirley Price Aromatherapy we believe that beauty is more than skin deep; we believe it
starts with a deeper understanding of health and stress, and the problems which can lead to unwanted skin conditions.
The Shirley Price Classic and Natural ranges are a highly therapeutic and specialised group of products, with each one
containing true essential oils specially blended to revitalise the skin.
The products improve the skin and rejuvenate any complexion, due not only to the quality of the creams themselves,
but also to the careful choice of true essential oils. Essential oils can be absorbed via the dermis through to the
growing cellular layer and into the bloodstream. As a result, the Shirley Price range can help ease many skin problems.
Supplemented with expert advice from a therapist, the products can be used to help conditions ranging from
supersensitive to dull lifeless skin along with acne, psoriasis and eczema.
You wont be surprised to hear us say that consistency and simplicity is the key to a successful skincare regime.
Cleanse, treat and moisturise—three simple steps and a few minutes every morning and night—to keep skin looking
and feeling great.
1. Cleanse It’s very important to cleanse and exfoliate—morning and night—to eliminate surface debris and
flaky skin. To remove build-up, use our Exfoliating Facial Cleanser.
2. Treat. Once your skin is fresh and clean, the next step is to treat it. This can mean everything from toning to
reducing the appearance of pore size and wrinkles to firming and smoothing the skin. With the Mannatech LIFT
line, you can treat your skin 24/7. For day, use Multiphase Serum to tighten. For evening, use Night Repair Crème
to replenish and age defy.
3. Moisturise After cleansing and treating, it’s time to hydrate. Nourish your skin, protect it and reset
the clock by moisturising, day and night. Use our Day Cream, Night Cream and Body Lotion for naturally
soft, youthful skin all over.
Skincare – knowing your stuff
At Shirley Price we have made our reputation through education and mutual effort. A little knowledge is not enough. Shirley Price therapists have a commitment to lifelong learning
Know your Skin types
Sensitive skin: People with sensitive skin need to be careful to choose products with the
minimum of synthetic ingredients, avoiding products containing perfume, lanolin, mineral oil
and sometimes soap. However, a person with sensitive skin may have oily skin or dry skin
and should choose products suitable for that skin type, ensuring that the range of products is
pure and natural. All Shirley Price Aromatherapy products are formulated with sensitive
skins in mind.
Normal skin: A normal skin is neither too oily nor too dry - it is clear, radiant, smooth and
rare! Aromatherapy skin care helps maintain a good complexion by keeping the blood
circulation active and restoring the natural moisture balance.
Oily skin: This skin type can have open pores and is prone to spots. However, it usually
maintains its suppleness for longer than other skin types and may appear to age more slowly.
Essential oils can do much to help normalise the production of oil from the sebaceous glands.
Dry skin: Dry skin is a common problem and can actually be due to a lack of fluid intake.
Other causes are by lost moisture, or insufficient oil production. An effective moisturiser will
replace the moisture lost, while essential oils will normalise the production of natural oil.
Mature skin: Essential oils are excellent for helping to preserve the youthful appearance of
the skin and also for rejuvenating mature skin as certain essential oils help the regeneration of
new skin cells. They also have preservation properties and help to prevent the appearance of
lines and wrinkles.
Eczema: Eczema, in the main, is hereditary but is aggravated by stress, diet and
environmental pollutants. It can be treated very well with the correct essential oils and
specific skin care.
Combination skin: Usually one skin type predominates so that this is the one to treat. If the
skin is clearly divided into oily and dry areas treat these areas separately with the correct
masque or masques.
We guide but you decide which products are going to be the most useful to your client.
The Classic range offers a solution to all skin care requirements with the added properties of aromatherapy oils
to enhance and refresh the skin.
