I absolutely love making homemade cosmetics, I guess I’m a bit spoiled and I don’t like the store brand cosmetics because of preservatives they use. All of the ingredients I use in homemade cosmetics has to be organic, that’s how you will get the full benefits of them ( there is no cutting corners here ;) )
