A significant trend is noticed, where many teenagers and mature women alike are returning to the kitchen-cupboard and herbal ingredients for skincare. So no fear of parabens or any allergy causing elements.

I do not know anyone in my age group ( I'm 21) who would turn to the kitchen cupboard for skincare. We would much rather buy the nice packaging

I've recently been trying Uniquely Natural hair products. The conditioner says it's silicone free, but the shampoo doesn't say anything about that. I also love the smeall of them. But unfortunately I've found that I was getting little blisters on my scalp and an itchy scalp after just one day. So I've tried switching to an anti-dandruff shampoo (not all natural) and still using the conditioner. Seems better. I'll give the shampoo another go before making a definite judgment on it.

I recently discovered the Embalm Skincare range. They are using 100% natural ingredients in there skincare range. Even the preservative is natural.
I've fallen in love with the 2-in-1 Cleanser & Toner which leaves my skin literally glowing all day. Check it out
They are also on Twitter, giving skincare and skinfood tips.

I like the herbal skincare idea to the point I am studying Aromatherapy and hope to make products for sale in my Massage and Beauty Studio. And of course, products like Natio are based on aromatherapy and there are the mineral make-ups with out any additives.

Your comment about the yoghurt facial prompted me to ask about it. Do you just apply yoghurt (presume it is the natural one) cold straight from the refrigerator and how long do you leave it on? I have combination mature skin.

I think you should go for Bunnings for all your plants, I got some beautiful Banksias and Acacias for my mother's grave. =)

I really recommend MOOGOO products, they have a website & a facebook page.
The company is based in QLD.
There are so many positive testimonials listed.
The products are safe for all ages, including children & babies.
Also for eczema, dermatitis & psoriasis.

Thanks for the information on Moogoo. I had a look at it on the Internet and I am very interested in it as I have psoriasis on my scalp. As it is a natural product I think it should be great as the testimonials are fabulous. I can't wait to try it!

I know myself that I'm going out of my way these days to search for natural/organic skincare products. I'm sick if all the crap they put in skincare and also sick of some of the major brands still testing their products and ingredients on animals. We should be way past that point. I've done a few home made masks, using honey, oats, raw sugar. And the cold teabags for the eyes (that's a real winner).

That's true as women are now waking up to themselves and go for natural whenever they can. I use Skin So Soft by Avon for after show moisturiser, make-up remover, to soften cuticles, massage oil for tired muscles. It has many other uses - insect repellent (used it at a barbie and everyone borrowed it to keep the mossies away).removing paint from hands, clean vinyl dashboard of my car, I have 1.5 A4 pages of uses and I certainly get my moneys worth from this product.

There are so many terrific books available (not to mention what you can find online) with information on how to make your own skincare products. Much of it is very, very simple, and best of all, no petro-chemicals, artificial colours, flavours or additives. Check out "The Fragrant Pharmacy" Valerie Ann Worwood or "The Book of Natural Beauty" Anita Guyton. Coconut Oil makes a fantastic pre-shower rub, make-up remover, and hair treatment.

But then again i love the convenience of going to the store picking up my moisturiser and bobs ur uncle ur on to the next job for the day.Catch twenty two if u ask me.
