PREFACE

GREEN COSMETICS – BIO CARE FROM NATURE

Welcome to the world of Green Cosmetics! If you’re looking for 100% natural care without preservatives or additives then this is for you. As the name promises, Green Cosmetics are really green: natural, fresh, and wholesome. Green Cosmetics are life in harmony with nature, with no animal experiments or added chemicals, less consumption, more self-sufficiency, and a clean environment. Green biocare with a clear conscience!

What are cosmetics? We dont want to boast but the term cosmetics derives from the whole cosmos. The ancient Greek expression kósmos means order and stands for the harmonic structure of the universe. From that kosmitiké tekhné, the art of decorating, evolved. In this book – as with the ancient Greeks – beauty and order come to form a unity. Here cosmetics mean beauty in tune with nature. For pure care. For healthy nutrition for the skin. For easy recipes. For gentle products as pure as nature herself.

All good reasons, therefore, to produce your own Green Cosmetics! This book contains 130 natural alternatives to commercial products, all of them nourishing, biological, and homemade. The benefits are obvious: you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin and you invigorate yourself with healthy, natural care. Enjoy discovering Green Cosmetics and enjoy naturally nourished skin!

GREEN COSMETICS: FOOD FOR THE SKIN

OUR SKIN EATS, TOO

Healthy, organic and fresh foods are a normal part of people’s lives nowadays, making natural skin care a meaningful next step for anyone preferring fresh over processed, as both nutrition and cosmetics are absorbed into the body. Our skin consumes also; its food is the cosmetic products we apply. It is common sense to choose one’s cosmetics with the same care as one’s food.

Since time immemorial and with good reason the ingredients of innumerable cosmetic products have been garnered from kitchens and gardens, food that’s well tolerated and effective on your skin. Strawberries tighten the skin; parsley clears the skin’s pores, and cucumber moisturizes it. Flour exfoliates; whey cleans; salt deodorizes, and medicinal clay increases the skin’s suppleness. The active ingredients of age-old and well-tried remedies come from kitchen and garden.
