There are so many reasons I love making body products. One of which is to know exactly what I put in my product and keep myself away from toxic chemicals, like endocrine disruptors. You would be surprised to know that a lot of the products we use on a daily basis contain ingredients that have been linked to all sorts of health issues, from allergies to cancer.
therefore, learning to make your own products is a great way to save money, but the best part is that you know what’s exactly in the products you make.
If you like; you can use organic ingredients and stick to ingredients that you know are not harmful for you nor your children.
Which is why I will be teaching you how to make Lavender And Vanilla Hand Moisturizer today. I hope you try this out for personal or commercial purpose.
So, What Is A Moisturizer?
A moisturizer is any substance that moisturizes your skin. It adds moisture to your skin and helps to keep it in there.
More-so, it may interest you to know that a Moisturizer does a lot of awesome things for your skin, including protecting it from the elements and rehydrating it so it looks and feels healthy. There are, however, different types of moisturizer for different parts of your body. Your facial moisturizer is designed specifically for the harsh conditions your face deals with on a daily basis, while your eye cream is designed for the thinner and more delicate skin around your eyes. Both face and eye creams are usually water-based so they do not clog your pores. But your hand moisturizer , on the other hand, can sometimes be oil-based; as it need to work on areas of your body that take more abuse (like your hands and feet).
