In her book, Jan Berry, has added all the ingredients. The emulsifying waxes, the preservatives, and tons of infos about both and other products that ARE necessary in all creams and lotions recipes. In too many books, they don't put them in their recipes, yet.. after few days only, bacterias and their friends are inviting themselves in the product. So why putting ourselves in a risky recipe challenge and others as well (if offering creams and lotions to family and friends or .. even selling them ! ).
She has done a very extensive tutorial on tests she has done with many different products like emulsifying waxes and preservatives. The document is in her blog (the nerdyfarmwife.com)
A very extensive book that has put others close to the 'to give box' in my case.
Absolutely love this woman's book AND her blog. Highly reccomend this to the stay at home moms that make their own products! Simplifies EVERYTHING, breaks down EVERYTHING for you, in easy to follow text, well organized and put together. Absolutely love this book. My favourite "recipe" book right now. Just a taste- learn to make your own soaps, dry shampoos, cleaning products, facial cleansers, even pet friendly products and treats, bug bite and outdoor products, the list goes on and on. This book should be in every woman's bathroom, kitchen, and living room.
Great images, very good instructions, well explained! A great variety of homemade products, great for those who want to live a zero waste life ;) the only thing I am kind of discouraged about these recipes is the wantity if ingredients you have to make youself, because they cannot be found in stores, so it takes a lot of preparation beforehand.
J'adore ce livre. J'ai essayé plusieurs recettes et je ne suis jamais déçue. Bien qu'il soit en anglais, il est facile à suivre, avec des recettes simples et plusieurs idée pour personnaliser la recette. Il y a aussi de l'information sur les différentes propriétés des ingrédients utilisés. Personellement je l'adore.
