Natural Handmade Beauty Products

Natural Handmade Beauty Products More and more consumers today prefer natural and environmentally friendly cosmetics to mass-market beauty products which often contain potentially irritating or harmful synthetic ingredients. No wonder that natural handmade beauty products are becoming increasingly popular. What are the main benefits of such products?

Before the Industrial Revolution, all skin and hair care products were handmade. They were made of natural ingredients such as vegetable and essential oils, herbal infusions, dried herbs, beeswax, etc. Scientific and technological progress made it possible to automate many processes and replace some of the most expensive and/or hard to get natural ingredients with synthetic analogues.

As a result, modern manufacturers offer an impressive selection of beauty products to suit any taste and budget. However, large-scale cosmetic production has its drawbacks. Most large cosmetic manufacturers have to deal with a dilemma: on the one hand, they need to save money on raw materials and packaging to increase their profit; on the other hand, their products need to have the longest shelf life possible so that the whole batch or at least most of it sells out to recoup the costs. So, instead of natural ingredients, a lot of mass-market beauty products are full of cheap synthetic thickeners, stabilisers, fragrances, emulsifiers, colourants, and preservatives.

Natural handmade beauty products are going back to the roots, to where it all began. Such products are released in small batches and don’t need to have a long shelf life. This allows to formulate them without various artificial auxiliary ingredients that provide long-term preservation.

Handmade cosmetics are formulated with all-natural ingredients, such as herbal extracts and distillates (hydrolates), vegetable and essential oils, natural bee products (honey, beeswax, propolis, etc.), milk and dairy products, sea salt, algae, thermal water and mud, natural spices, etc. Such cosmetics are produced using special technologies (for example, low-temperature production), which ensure the preservation of all the useful properties of the raw materials in the finished products.

There are all kinds of handmade beauty products available to consumers, including, but not limited to natural handmade soap bars, facial creams and mousses, shampoos, hair conditioners and masks, lip balms, various scrubs, oil blends, deodorants, toothpastes, make-up, and more. All such products meet certain quality criteria, which ensures that they are safe for human health and the environment.

As we’ve already mentioned above, handmade cosmetics are formulated with natural ingredients and are free of irritating or harmful additives. Besides, such products are environmentally friendly and ethical. They are not tested on animals, and their production doesn’t pollute the environment. Many handmade beauty products are sold in packaging made of biodegradable or recycled materials, which contributes to environmental protection.

Ideally, consumers should make natural handmade cosmetics themselves. However, not everyone is into making DIY cosmetics, a lot of people think that it is too time and effort consuming. Besides, to make high-quality beauty products, you need to know the properties of all ingredients, the rules for combining them in recipes, as well as the rules for storing and using various extracts, oils, and other natural ingredients. As a result, most consumers prefer to buy handmade cosmetics made by reputable brands.
