Package-free, preservative-free, eco-friendly, easy to transport and use, solid cosmetics have it all. They can now be purchased in specialty stores, sometimes at a premium price, but they can also be made at home, inexpensively and in just a few minutes. In this third book, Sylvie Fortin, the pioneer of home cosmetics in Quebec, offers us 50 recipes for face and body care products: toothpastes, deodorants, shampoos, hair masks, shaving soaps, bath time products, in addition to 30 ultra-simple recipes of minute cosmetics that can be prepared in a flash for immediate use. Solid non-toxic cosmetics consist of a few common, mostly local ingredients and since they contain no water, they can be kept for a long time without the addition of preservatives.
