Gels - Making a Spot Treatment
According to Susan Barkley of Point of Interest, spot treatments can be an effective way to deliver active ingredients to your skin. She says that you do not want to put a lot of ingredients in it....just the ones you really want to use to help a specific problem on your skin. Of course when you make your spot treatment gel, you do not want to make any claims that the gel can lighten the look of age spots, etc. If you are interested in Susan's recipes, check out her recent entry called Gels - Making a Spot Treatment.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
