1. Why DIY?

If you’re like me, you love to play with beauty products. Masks, lotions, hair stylers, cosmetics—if it promises to make me look pretty, I can’t wait to get my hands on it! In the last few years, though, I’ve become painfully aware of both the incredible expense of beauty products and the list of scary-sounding ingredients printed on their labels. What the heck is methylparaben? Disodium cocoamphodiacetate? Cocamidopropyl betaine? I wasn’t always sure exactly what these science-y terms meant, but I knew that my skin—my body’s largest organ—was absorbing the bad stuff I smeared onto it along with the good. I started thinking, OK, these products are making my outsides look better, but what about my insides?

So I did some research. A LOT of research. And, when I was finished, my findings inspired me to prowl through the house to collect most of my synthetic chemical-laden beauty products and toss them straight into the trash.

According to the Environmental Working Group’s Cosmetic Database, the beauty and grooming products that we use everyday, on basically every part of our body, contain some 10,500 chemical ingredients. Some of these synthetic ingredients are known carcinogens, some are toxic to our reproductive systems, and some are known to disrupt our endocrine systems. For example, the chemicals found in many antibacterial soaps and cleansers are proven to be toxic and carcinogenic and to disrupt your skin’s own natural, healthy bacteria, which increases the risk of serious illness and infection. A common foaming agent called diethanolamine is known to act as a carcinogen. Many, many grooming products contain formaldehyde, a preservative so nasty it’s been banned by the European Union. Synthetic fragrances are not only irritating to skin but also carcinogenic and toxic to hormones and reproductive organs. Propylene glycol is found in thousands of beauty products and also happens to be the active ingredient in antifreeze. Sulfates, common in shampoos, body washes, and face washes, irritate the skin and eyes and can cause harm to the kidney, liver, and nervous system. Those are just a few of the dangerous chemicals marring the very potions in which we cover ourselves every single day. There are too many others to mention, plus thousands of other synthetic ingredients which haven’t even been tested for safety. Yikes!

And can we talk about the money for a minute? It’s estimated that the average American family spends $2,000 every year on grooming products. Even a drugstore facial lotion, at which many beauty buffs turn up their well-moisturized noses, will run you fifteen or twenty bucks. A bottle of body lotion? Ten bucks. And don’t get me started on shampoos, hair conditioners, body washes, face washes—you’re
