i was browsing through bath an beauty, thinking, Wouldnt it be great to have a board specifically for items that were 100% or at least very close to natural/organic? im guessing it would be just for beauty, maybe dog treats, because most crafts on here you dont eat. or at least not my earrings. heh.

there are many reasons, for one, health. im an avid believer if you cant pronounce methylaceficlorrate( fake example word), chances are those bad chemicals are bad for your. like commercially bought eyeliner( except MN state), and lipstick, do you want mercury or lead sinking into your skin??? lye for one is very bad, and i realize alot of people cant avoid this one some things you just cant.some people are allergic to these bad things too, not skin skin reactions either.. my mom is HIGHLY sensitive to chemicals, skin AND smelling them....i wont go on and on, theres a really good link in my sig, school concerns, you can visit if wanted.

it would just be nice to have, i realize alot of the posts are natural, and ive gotten some great recipes. this is just an idea.. you could post recipes for makeup, skin care, hair care, natural cleaners, deodorant, soaps, and more..

thanks for reading guys.

I don't really think there is enough traffic on the Bath & Beauty boards to warrant another board. Most of the stuff on there is pretty natural, I know for myself that's why I started making my own soaps and lotions and lip balms.

Also I don't think your idea of lye being "bad for you" is correct. First of all, it is natural, second of all, there is not any lye in finished soap if you've done it correctly.

Maybe we could start a thread for natural stuff to keep it all in once place?  Also I think you would have to decide what your definition of natural is. I personally do not ever make anything with petroleum products because I think they are terrible on your skin, but petroleum jelly (vaseline) occurs "naturally" on the sides of oil rigs.

100% natural is awesome, but even something you hand make that is, say only 80% natural is going to be way better for you than a comprabable mass produced product.   Grin

it wouldnt have to be in bath and beauty persay, just a all natural thread.. i just think it cut down on alot of wasted time/excitement. lye is corrisive, and maybe if you do it right, there may not be lye in it, but some people may not be that good. Thats pretty cool that you try not to use petroleum..also if pet. jelly occurs naturally on oil rigs, it may start out as natural but it could still absorb the oil. and yes, 80% is better. if more people would detox, you wouldnt have to be so careful too, i still wear eyeliner alot, i know its not the best but i do drink teas and stuff. which, all natural recipes could be a part of the thread too. i do like alot of the recipes i find but get bummed when i cant do something because harmful odors it may cause.. thanks alot for reading

i'd like it, or maybe if links were flagged if they had chemical components?
for me the problem is 2-fold, i have trouble finding many of the substances at reasonable prices (and don't talk to me about international shipping) but my second and more important problem is that my skin takes offense to a lot of stuff, which is one reason why i'm not trying to use as much all natural as i can
making my own (very simple, but effective) lip balms and moisturisers has already done me heaps of good (and they've proved popular with family and friends who've tried them)

thanks selnith!! im not sure about the flagging, mare mare is right about the 80% being better.. your skin could be very chemical sensitive, my moms is. shes even odor sensitive!

I definitely see how this is very beneficial, but I'm not sure if there would be enough entries on a board like that to really be a board... most people would put it with the non natural things of their topic But I could defnitely see a special kind of label or symbol for an item which is mostly natural

if there was an all natural board, im sure people would post there for it to not get moved by a moderator..and i know i could come up with alot of posts. even just using vinegar as a window washing fluid would be all natural..its a lot simpler than one would believe, and alot of people are turning to all green.
