Oh the weather outside is frightful, but we can chase away Jack Frost and his windy minions with some great products customized for these colder, winter months. Learn to make and modify formulas using a variety of oils, butters, waxes, emulsifiers, and other ingredients to protect your skin, nails, lips, and hair from all the elements. This version includes concepts combining emollients so you’ll make less greasy, less draggy products, like lip balms and manicure balms, and using rheology modifiers to create thicker, less greasy facial moisturizers.

This e-zine is all about moisture levels in your skin and hair during the cold winter months, and how to combat dryness in both using the recipes and ingredients Susan brings up in this e-Zine. She digs into the details of what causes dryness, what ingredients counteract those effects, and gives great winter-themed recipes for making several products.

Originally published in 2017, this e-zine is now doubled in size with many new formulas.

    This e-Zine is published in English and is not available in any other languages.  This e-Zine is in PDF format and it is sent as a digital download.  It is not available in any other format and not available except as a digital download.

    About the author

    Susan Barclay Nichols lives in the Fraser Valley, B.C., Canada.  She stumbled upon a recipe for bath bombs and became obsessed with creating bath and body products. This is when her extreme interest in chemistry began. 

    In 2009, she started Point of Interest, a bath and body products blog to share her love of creating products. Her favorite hobbies – other than creating bath and body products – include sewing, trivia, criticizing and correcting people’s grammar and spelling, and striving to achieve expert status on bass in Rock Band 3. She lives with her wonderful husband, Raymond and their adorable dog, Sasja.

    Because of the downloadable nature of this product, e-books and e-zines are final sale, and therefore not eligible for a refund.
