Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book - combines informative & very in depth information about what to avoid in cosmetics, beauty & body care products; there's a reference section where you can look up ingredients to check out how safe they are (by no mean an exhaustive list); it recommends a few off the shelf products BUT the main attraction to me was the huge section of DIY recipes.

Many natural or green books have featured recipes before, but in my experience they've been for nothing more exciting than bath oils or an oil/salt body scrub! This amazing book covers everything from top to toe - hair volumisers, sunscreen, self tanner, cuticle softner, all of which can be made at home with a few ingredients - a fantastic idea, considering the price tags on some natural beauty products. There are even recipes inspired by not-so-green cult items (such as Eve Lom cleansing balm) but without the chemical nasties or hefty price tag, along with really clear step by step instructions.

This book is jam packed full of interesting & useful information and is great value for money in my opinion; I can see mself using the recipe section time & time again. Would recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in saving money on beauty products, not just those who want to go 'green'.

The only slight niggle (and my reason for awarding 4 rather than 5 stars) is the 'where to buy' section at the back is very much targeted at readers in the USA; but an excellent purchase all the same.

I became fascinated with natural products after using a natural shampoo that revolutionised my hair. I bought this book because it doesn't just tell you what you should be using - it also tells you why you shouldn't use many of the chemicals that are in 90% of our cosmetics and toiletries. It made a very interesting read and has convinced me that I should pay much more attention to what is going onto my skin as it all ends up absorbed into the body.
The recipes are excellent and I like the fact that it recommends ready made products, because it is hard work making everything yourself. I've tried out many of the suggested products and find them mostly fantastic.
My only slight complaint (and, as with the other reviewer, the reason I haven't given it 5 stars) is that it is an american book and therefore gives almost totally american stores in the "Where to buy" section. Not all the ingredients are easy to lay your hands on - so an edition with british references would make this book impossible to beat.

This book totally changed my beauty-rituals and helped to understand what I want to put on my face and in my body in general, and how to help the sking to regenerate and prosper itself, instead of depending on chemicals!
Besides the very scientific side and good explanations of the industry and ingredients, it gives you very down-to-earth advices, diy tips and also good websites for further reading and for green cosmetics shopping.
I ordered and read it nearly a year ago, but I still flip through once in a while for some beauty advice. Definitely this one is a keeper!!

Format: Paperback
I was given this as a Christmas present. It has lots of great information and the recipes appear good. However, there are a few instances where the pages aren't in order ie it goes from page 320 to page 329 and then page 336 to page 321 which makes it very confusing reading.

This book is amazing. I wish everybody would read it. There's loads of information in it and very well written. It just amazes me how much we don't know about the stuff we actually put on ourselves daily. If you're hesitating about buying this book, don't. It is an essential one. and not only for you but for your whole family. All I can say is get the book and spread the world: Go Green!
