For my senior project I created my own natural cosmetics. Over the summer I traveled to the smallest of the Hawaiian Islands, Kauai, to meet a women named Stephanie who is an expert on natural healing. She took me around the island and helped me find and gather the best ingredients nature has to offer. We formulated three products: a papaya seed facial exfoliate, a sun repair facial mask and anti aging facial oil. All the products were made with all natural ingredients and preservatives. I chose to make natural cosmetics for my senior project because I believe that eliminating harmful chemicals from the body is the key to living a healthy life. After I made my products I created a pamphlet with an ingredient index and a description of each product that I made.
