You'll LOVE our courses if...

You are fascinated by the medicinal power of plants; as foods, as herbs and as phytochemicals. You understand that health issues - including skin problems - can be prevented and healed using natural health methods. 

You probably work as a practitioner in one of these ares:
  • Health coaching
  • Functional Nutrition
  • Skincare formulation
  • Face Yoga 
  • Facials
  • Esthetics or beauty therapy
  • Dermatology
  • Detox

Or maybe your field is food creation and you want to run a juice bar or detox retreat.

Unlike many people in the holistic health scene you've got well developed critical thinking skills and you want to ensure that what you learn is proven scientifically. You need evidence-based training that can be holistically applied. 

Why study with us?

We do things differently

No opinions, no misinformation, no mainstream views.

Pure distilled science curated for over 20 years (and ongoing). Star Khechara tracks down every crumb of research around a food, a nutrient, a skin issue so my students have the ‘Rolls Royce’ of training.

Also, we are more than a school - this is a REVOLUTION - we are training our students to push the boundaries of skin nutrition and offer revolutionary interventions to their clients. Interventions that actually work. Our students are with us for life and can always ask for help and support. Unlike other nutrition schools we give our graduates extensive practitioner kits with ready-made client materials so they never have to sweat over designing a meal plan or make another PDF. It’s all done for them.

And finally we are different in that we dare to step out of the mainstream skin nutrition world that is all about selling supplements and collagen, we teach wholefood plant-based nutrition. We are in fact the worlds first accredited skin nutrition school and the worlds first plant-based skin nutrition school. We are not here to conform to what everyone else is doing, we are here to disrupt the skin nutrition world and arm our students with the weapons of science so they can truly heal their clients skin.

If you're looking at other skin nutrition courses and they're NOT pushing plant-foods, fruit and phytochemicals as the solution - they're not truly evidence-based because the future of skin-health is a plant-based diet


The future of skin-nutrition and cellular rejuvenation is plant-based. Phytochemicals and antioxidants are the hot topic when it comes to every single degenerative disease you can imagine and where are these potent chemicals found? IN PLANTS!

Plants aren't just food they're powerful medicine; beauty medicine.

There are compounds in fruits that change the way your genes work. There are phytochemicals that can kill cancer cells. There are antioxidants that can prevent sun damage and activators in berries that can cause the release of 'youth proteins' in the body. 
Plant-based foods are rich in bioactive compounds, including vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, polyphenols, and phenolic acids, which can contribute to oxidant defence, lower inflammation, and promote structural support of the skin... Collectively, the evidence to date suggests a promising future for plant-based dietary interventions that promote skin barrier health and function

I really love your modules. Being a nutrition scientist, I really appreciate that everything you teach has a sound scientific base. Beauty nutrition is such an exciting approach to talk about healthy nutrition from a completely new and attractive perspective.

Star Khechara

Skincare formulator and beauty author turned skin-nutrition nerd, Star distilled her 20+ years of skin-health knowledge into the world’s first international accredited skin-nutrition school to teach skin therapists, facialists, face yoga practitioners and estheticians how to feed the skin from within for cellular-level rejuvenation and vibrant beauty.

EdTech Ninja Superhero
Jodie Lopez is a self-confessed geek and proud of it. Having won a number of awards for her use of technology across the curriculum as a primary school teacher, Jodie wanted to help more schools and edtech businesses to get tech right for everyone in education - pupils, parents, teachers and school leaders. 

 She is now a freelance consultant and founder of lovEdtech. Jodie supports schools with using technology on any budget, as well as helping edtech businesses with everything from marketing to customer journeys and product development. 


As a teenager Star Khechara suffered badly with excruciating eczema and nothing from the Doctor or chemist  ever worked. Star had to do her own research into medicinal plants then created her own plant-medicine diet and skincare products using herbs with other natural ingredients.

Her own holistic methods worked and that kickstarted her career as the author of The Holistic Beauty Book, followed by launching Formula Botanica (skincare formulation school) and now Skin Nutrition Institute.

With mountains of science now proving that medicinal plants and a plant-based diet can both treat and prevent skin disorders, Star wants to end the suffering of others and help people experience vibrant health at the cellular level.

Her mission is to train thousands of practitioners so that anyone that needs help has a holistic skin-health practitioner in their neighbourhood.

SNI graduates are the holistic skin-health doctors of tomorrow
