I have been making skin-care cosmetics by myself since I read "The Cosmetics That Stupid People Use".
It's Japanese book..It talks about "synthetic surfactant " in cosmetics.
It was scary...dangerous to skin.
So I stoped using brand-name cosmetics anymore and threw away all of them.
I still do makeup though...but skincare is important.
My sister is a big fan of my handmade lotion and creme! (*^-^*)
