David Suzuki is taking aim at the cosmetics industry for the toxic ingredients found in common cosmetic products. This week the David Suzuki Foundation released their report on toxic chemicals in personal care products. The report discusses the findings of an online survey conducted earlier this year in which participants were asked to inspect ingredient lists for twelve sets of potentially harmful chemicals used as ingredients in cosmetics.
Let Jan show you healthy alternatives to the toxic chemicals that are present in most mainstream cosmetics. Why risk long-term health problems or allow these chemicals to dry and damage your skin? In comparison, natural makeup nourishes your skin whilst enhancing your looks.
In this fun and practical workshop, you'll learn how to make your own natural lipstick, lipgloss, mascara, and eye and lip pencils.
Imagine the pleasure of wearing makeup crafted specifically to enhance your features. Imagine the satisfaction of making your cosmetics. Imagine the security of knowing you're applying healthy substances onto your skin.
Turn these skills into an enjoyable hobby, as you create cosmetics for family and friends, giving them unique and treasured gifts. This could even be the start of a business opportunity if you want to turn craft into cash.
