While state licensing is a good start they do not have the appropriate regulations for health grade sanitation protocols. The reason for this additional training is a higher level of expectation to minimize the chance for infection for both the makeup artist and client. Often government guidelines are basic regulations. Each industry has to adhere to those but can institute more rigorous ones. Example: The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) are government regulations. However, laboratories are accredited by the College of American Pathologists. Laboratories are inspected every two years. These inspections incorporate CLIA plus more comprehensive requirements, especially quality control.

While attending makeup school provides a more formal approach to learning the fundamentals of training and typically includes sanitation, it does not mean you learned “health grade sanitation”. Because most makeup schools are privately owned there is no universal approach to sanitation.

Absolutely! In addition to the application of typical cosmetics, Special FX artists are responsible for the application of additional materials including but not limited to adhesives and prosthetics – all of which should follow health grade sanitation practices.

Sanitation Conversation is the standard in health grade sanitation practices for makeup. The certification is necessary to distinguish those who are Sanitation Specialists and those who are not. We cannot uphold a standard without a framework and criterion in which to meet those standards. By becoming certified you have completed your training and successfully passed your assessment.

The investment is small in comparison to the cost of legal action if a client or employee contracted a virus, fungi or parasite during their makeup application. You have learned how to protect yourself and your client using proper health grade sanitation. You have more knowledge then what is required from the state level. In addition, the certification allows you to provide value to your customer and secure adequate pricing.

Your certification is valid for one year from the completion date of your training unless otherwise noted. The cost of re-certification is $25 and includes training updates and additional resources.

You are not required to purchase the kit bundle. The training and certification is sold separately. The sanitation kit offered is a companion product to the training. It was created for the convenience of the artist and to avoid sourcing all of the products and tools needed to practice health grade sanitation.
