There has been a lot of alarm raised about the ingredients found in commercial beauty products. Many of them include ingredients that cause cancer, pollute the earth and that are just plain bad for us to use. This doesn’t concern me with products I make myself, because I know exactly what’s in it – often times I can eat the final product. Concerned about the products you’re using now? Check out Skin Deep, a database that lets you know exactly what’s in that jar of firming skin cream.
