These two books have now been in print for 14 years, and are the first "go to" books for home crafters of DIY skin care in Australia, and recommended in workshops by many teachers across the country. This offer saves you $10.00 when purchasing both titles at once.
You'll be in control of what you put into your products, and of course what you leave out!
Making Your Own Moisturisers: If you just want a simple recipe to follow, you can do just that, or you can gain a deeper understanding of how to make moisturisers and the ingredients used, as well as lotions, cleansers, scrubs and lip balm. We make it easy to tweak our formulas so that they meet your specific preferences.
Bubble Bubble Oil and Confusion: Offers basic information on surfactants and their uses, how surfactants actually clean, basic chemistry (if you wish to know!), anatomy of the hair, moisturising hair ingredients, how pH affects the hair and skin, preservation, overviews on each surfactant, how to build a shampoo, hair conditioner and foamy formulas as well as equipment required, scenting, formulating, adding fragrance, adjusting thickness and lather and so much more.
By making your own skin and hair care products, you can decide which ingredients you will include, and which you won't! We know this can feel a little daunting - but dive on in, you'll never regret it!
