Title: Newbie say's Hello
Post by: Safi on July 01, 2013, 09:56:43 AM
Hello everyone!

I am currently experimenting with making my own skin care creams, this all started with my teenage daughters acne getting worse. I'm happy to say it has vastly improved with the cream I made & this has really helped boost her confidence! :D ( sulky teenager finally coming out of her shell)

I'm hoping to sell this to the public at some stage.  I would very much appreciate any help support offered & would love to hear how you guys got started.

Welcome Safi - congratulations on sorting the teenage problem.

The EU regs re cosmetics are changing in a few days and at first glance seem really complex; stick with this group, make more posts then you'll see some more boards. An extremely helpful Safety Asessor posts here.

hello and welcome from me... I had very spotty skin, even into my mid thirties... I could have probably collected enough oil from my face in a week to make a guest bar of soap. If I knew back then what I know now  :clueless:

Hello & welcome Safi.  Another 'creamer' here although I'm a soaper too.  Congrats on creating a formula that works for your daughter.

Hi Saffi!

You are very welcome here. Yes, there is a tonne of info here! Better than any book I ever bought! Also the info here is correct which is one of the major issues in some books out there. Having our own soaping chemist is a bonus here for sure. You must be so proud of yourself for making a cream that helped your daughter! She also must be thrilled too.

Like your avatar by the way  ;D

Hi Tanya,

Thank you! I'm really enjoying myself at the moment & what a relief to finally find a source of info you can rely on. My daughter
is very happy, her skin has almost completely cleared. Her acne had got so bad & she had so many black heads! A face mask I made turned out to be a great black head remover! ( happy accident). Her friends have noticed her skin clearing up & she is a happy bunny at the moment.

Silly question but what is the Avatar?

Hi Safi

Nice to meet you.  I am so pleased that your formulations are working so well.  I find that a clay mask helps when I have a break out (something I learnt as a newbie here!)

I am pretty sure avatar means your picture you have uploaded to your profile.  Have fun  :buttrf:

edited to amend my dodgy spelling!

Thank you Tanya,

There is still so much to learn & get my head around the terminology. I don't even know where to begin with SA so will be picking many brains on here.  I'm just relieved for my daughter, something that is helping her, there was a point where she didn't want to leave the house.

Thanks for liking my Avatar (my eye) ;D xx
