Cosmetics, naturally

I have always thought that it is not a good idea to put chemicals in or on your body and recently I have felt myself wanting more and more to make my own cosmetics without dangerous chemicals. I am also hoping to be able to make make up with colours perfect for me and I’m actually getting very excited about it.

The only drawback is that I live in rural Italy and I haven’t got access to places where I might buy natural pigments suitable for putting on my skin so I’m going to have to do some internet research for suppliers with great prices.

I’ve been making my own soap for some years. I started because normal commercially bought soap irritated my skin, particularly on my hands. My soap is very gentle and moisturising and I use only essential oils to scent it.

My soap is made to order for people who want to buy it and you can buy it at my Etsy shop here , My soap takes a few days to make and it is ready for shipping.

Follow my journey of experimenting to find my perfect cosmetic recipes. I’ll keep you updated here and also on my YouTube channel, Amazingly 50 .

I’m off to do my research. I’ll be back soon!
