Following a number of investigative news reports and high-profile litigations cases, a spotlight has been turned onto the cosmetics and personal care industry and people have been horrified to learn that many of the leading brands contain a vast array of untested chemicals, many of which are even known to cause cancer. Due to lax product testing and labelling laws in the United States of America the companies can get away with creating harmful products, and seem to have no concern for the health, safety and well-being of the general public. It has even been found that products labelled as sensitive or marketed for babies contain cancer causing agents. In order to avoid these unscrupulous companies’ products, natural beauty alternative is becoming more and more popular and some people even going so far as to making their own at home. In fact, it’s very easy, cheap and safe to make products such as Homemade Face Care and hair care. Most recipes don’t require any fancy or exotic ingredients and other than a mixing bowl and maybe a mortar and pestle to grin, no specialist equipment is required.
A great place to find accessible hand, nail, face, skin and hair beauty product recipes is ‘Safe Natural Beauty Tips’, a natural beauty blog. Be sure to check out their many articles on natural beauty, detailing tips and tricks and with recipes for natural shampoo, conditioner, face masks, exfoliators, moisturisers, even nail strengthener.
