Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 2, 2009
Ewa Farjon is a cosmetic chemist who has long been concerned with the safety of commercial cosmetics, and she is now offering cosmetic-making courses that emphasize health as much as glamour and beauty. While there has been growing recognition of the danger of various chemicals in cosmetics and beauty products, Ms. Farjon's extensive training in the cosmetics industry helps her see beyond the obvious risks.
"Most of us know that parabens or Sodium Laureth Sulphate should be avoided, but not many people are aware about 'hidden carcinogens' in cosmetics," she says.
These hidden carcinogens are ingredients that are quite safe on their own, but can easily go into a chemical reaction with other ingredients. All it takes is for the product to sit on a shelf, and the ingredients can react and create a carcinogen. That's why it's important that people learn what ingredients can be safely used together. And this is only a sample of what her students will be taught as they learn to make natural, holistic cosmetics.
The courses start in January 2009 in Chicago (location depends from the amount of students), for detailed information go to http://www.HolisticCosmetics.com, and send an e-mail.
