I began making my own personal hygiene products about a year ago. After I began implementing healthier habits in my life, my personal care products seemed to change too. I had been reading about all the preservatives and synthetic chemicals they add to our stuff and it honestly made me nervous. Ingredients such as aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, and pthalates, were not looking as pretty as some of the companies wanted them to look. The information I gathered in a short time studied allowed me to jump on the hippie bandwagon and make my own stuff. (I recycle too but that is for a later topic).
