Green Daily has some very interesting links for the ladies who visit here, especially links to recipes for two ingredient cosmetics: http://www.greendaily.com/2009/01/31/queen-of-green-has-great-tips/ Of course, in countries like India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka etc there is an old tradition of making cosmetics from ingredients that are available in the bazaars at home. Some people like Shahnaz Hussain make hundreds of millions of dollars from bottling and selling them. There can't be anything better, though, than making what you can at home. It would cost less, would be more environmentally friendly because the energy required to bottle and ship the stuff would be saved and, best of all, it would be something that you could have the satisfaction of making yourself.
Here's to all you beautiful ladies and your handsome partners!
