Sonica Veith talks about the health risks posed by dangerous ingredients in skin care products and shares her own tragic story of a health crisis brought on by use of a commercial lotion. She provides a list of toxic ingredients to avoid that are commonly used in commercial skin care products and explains how emulsifiers work and the proper ratio of ingredients in making lotions. She also discusses natural preservatives and antioxidants and explains why freezing and refrigeration are good alternatives.

In easy-to-follow steps, Sonica demonstrates how to make Nourishing Lotion bars and Hair Conditioner and starts by showing how she prepares her own aloe vera juice from fresh aloe leaf.

As a bonus, there’s a demonstration of people trying out the soaps and lotion. Does homemade soap lather as well as commercial products? See for yourself!
