DIY Eco Cosmetics

This video shows you how to make several beauty products from natural ingredients: skin balm, hairspray for men, sugar scrub. You may find the recipe sizes to be a problem.

Donít they have a freezer in their kitchen?

If it is all too much trouble, at the end they suggest several kinds of packaged cosmetics from organic, socially-minded companies.
