Useful DIY recipes for making a variety of chemical free skincare products. The author has her own skincare line, but this wasn't promoting them. It contained actual ingredient lists, with individual essential oils listed rather than proprietary blends.

Green Beauty Recipes by Julie Gabriel, with over 300 recipes, is an excellent reference guide for those seeking more eco-friendly ways of creating and wearing makeup, lotion, fragrances, deodorants, and more. The introduction explains how these recipes are different and what types of alcohols and other materials to use in lieu of rubbing alcohol and other ingredients that are processed or contain artificial ingredients.

The introduction explains how these recipes are different and what types of alcohols and other materials to use in lieu of rubbing alcohol and other ingredients that are processed or contain artificial ingredients.

Another great find of the introduction is how to appropriately conduct a patch test to determine whether you are allergic to a particular compound or ingredient in each recipe. For those with sensitive skin, this will come in handy, especially since many of the recipes include alternatives should they find themselves allergic to a particular material. For those concerned about the shelf life of these products, not to worry because there are natural preservatives can be added to stave off bacteria, fungi, and other toxic elements that can render the products ineffective.

This book comes in handy for sure, if not for myself then for products for my children. Both my four and one year old boys occasionally suffer from unexplained skin rashes, terrible allergies to everything out there you can use to launder/wash or soap.

Julie also conveniently provides the links for her most recommended shops that provide the components to her recipes.

There's a bit of fun chemistry involved - the processes are also thoroughly explained by Julie, as well as information on why she made her decisions of using organic / plant / nature derived components versus buying things at the store.

All in all it's a great resource, and I'll be getting on making some of those baby lotions right away! ...more

Great advice for buying off the shelf organic body products. Interesting recipes that anyone can put together with items from the local pharmacy/health store.

Three stars as the book was lacking in the basics, no shampoo or conditioner recipes. These are staples that i don't think anyone could switch over without.

I skipped quite a few bits.

Some parts were really interesting such as the lists of chemicals to avoid or the one about natural ingredients and their benefits.

A few things I didn't like:

-Lots of repetitions

-The first few chapters were continuously trying to convince me to stop using so many chemicals and switch to a greener lifestyle - I'm already convinced! I've picked up the book and read this far - no need to go on

-Ingredients that were supposed to be 'found in your kitchen' definitely aren't I skipped quite a few bits.

Overall though, an interesting read that had some really good bits. ...more

Like the first book of this series, there is some good info in this book. Unfortunately, it was not well edited. There are many wrong word choices, some recipes with descriptions that clearly do not fit the recipe (mentioning of ingredients that aren't a part of the recipe, for example) and some definite formatting issues in the Kindle edition. Not to mention the lack of a clickable table of contents.
