Cleanse, moisturize, nourish your skin or hair … Most of the basics of hygiene and care for the face, body and hair are easy to do since there are neutral bases (to customize, but you can also use them pure) and turnkey kits. 

Shampoos, shower gels, make-up removers, micellar waters, face or body creams and scrubs, lip balms, face or hair masks, hand and foot creams… to customize as you wish (active ingredients, perfumes, textures…). 

As for the kits, they allow you to be a little more “the craftsman of one’s beauty” by offering all the equipment necessary for the preparation of your treatment : essential oils, vegetable oils, packaging, graduated pipette, to make a product that will last six months. You can also test the finished product (most DIY brands offer it) before investing in the kit. 

Products that are more complex to produce (as a general rule, those which require at least two phases and a cooking time) require patience and rigor, in particular concerning the rules of hygiene and conservation. You can’t improvise yourself as a formulator so easily! But ultimately, you will obtain at little cost a product adapted to your needs, to the season and to your desires, the composition of which you will have rigorously controlled.
