6 good reasons to switch to solid cosmetics
You're probably familiar with liquid cosmetics (soap, makeup remover, toothpaste...). But did you know that many of them can be made in solid form?
Better still, you can even make them yourself at home!
Today, we explain why it's worth taking the plunge...
6 reasons to switch to solid cosmetics
1- Because it's environmentally friendly
Completely zero waste, solid cosmetics require no plastic packaging. Their environmental impact is low.
If made from your vegan and animal-friendly products, your solid cosmetics will be eco-responsible.
Biodegradable, their formulas are more natural.

2- Because it's economical
Solid cosmetics can be reused and last up to 3 times longer than some liquid products!
So, depending on how often you use them, they can be much cheaper than a conventional product.

3- Because you choose their composition yourself
It's sometimes hard to understand what the different ingredients in our conventional products are...
With DIY solid cosmetics, it's up to you to choose the ingredients you want.
It's immediately easier to know what goes into them.
4- Because they can be customized
Have you ever found a product you liked, but it didn't quite fit? One of the advantages of DIY is that we can adapt our skincare products to our needs. Whether you're looking for a gentledeodorant , a shampoo for curly hair or a natural or mint-free toothpaste , DIY cosmetics can meet all these needs.
5- Because it's fun to make your own cosmetics
Whether you're the playful soul of a little chemist or a complete beginner , it's great to be able to create your own personalized skincare products. Plus, it's always rewarding to make something yourself.
Last but not least, it's the perfect way to spend time with your children (preferably choosing recipes that don't use essential oils). It's fun for the little ones as well as the older ones, and it's useful to do.
6- Because it's practical
By storing them in a small metal jar, for example, these products take up very little space. They won't clutter up your bathroom shelves. When traveling, they slip easily into your bag or suitcase. That's one less thing to worry about when you're flying!
What's more, since they're made without water, there's no risk of them spilling. They're easy to store in a tin with an airtight lid.
As you may have read, there are many advantages to turning to the preparation of homemade solid cosmetics.
