Some people are ditching chemicals in favor of a more natural, food-based approach to cosmetics.
Walnuts, tomatoes, poppy seeds and green apples-- All those fruits and veggies you put on your plate are ending up in tubes and jars as cosmetics and beauty aides.
Cosmetics and beauty care products that have a petroleum base or are made with other chemicals are a multi-million dollar business, and a majority of people still use them. But, more and more people are using beauty care products in a jar or tube made from things you can find on your kitchen table.
While these botanically based products are environmentlly friendly, in most cases, they are more expensive than chemically based cosmetics.
