Why is homemade skin care important?
Because a lot of skin care products are skin-irritating
Take SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate). Although it often causes skin irritation and is potentially carcinogenic, it is still found in many skin care products and toothpaste.
Why is it used? Because it is cheap and because it foams. It is the world upside down. Skin care products that do exactly the opposite of what you buy them for.
Yet it is often the reality.

Tropical rainforest is being cut down and exchanged for palm oil plantations.
If only these were the only problem ingredients:
Because you forgot about parabens, artificial fragrances, Triclosan, Phthalates, Polyethylene Glycol, Formaldehyde, Benzophenone, Aminophenol, Diaminobenzene, Phenylenediamine.
And the list goes on.
They are often ingredients that are added to make something last longer, prevent bacterial growth, make a product more spreadable
or make it foam more.
They are never added because they are good for your skin. They are often harmful to your skin and hormonal balance, harmful to nature and sometimes carcinogenic.

200 different names.
