      It started with a harmless quest for perfect wash-and-go hair. Every girl wants it, and Siobhan O'Connor and Alexandra Spunt finally found it in a fancy salon treatment. They were thrilled … until they discovered that the magic ingredient was formaldehyde.

      Shocked, O'Connor and Spunt left no bottle unturned. If it went on their body (and thus, was absorbed into their skin and bloodstream), they researched it. As it turns out, many of those unpronounceable ingredients in your self-tanner and leave-in conditioner are not regulated and the “natural” on your face wash doesn't mean what you think it does.

      Now, with the help of top scientists, dermatologists, and makeup artists, the authors share their compelling findings and the easy way to detoxify your beauty regimen. No More Dirty Looks also reveals the safest, most effective products on the market and time-tested home recipes. Finally, you don't need to sacrifice health for beauty … because coming clean is the best look yet.

      There are only three essential ingredients required to create luxurious, soothing soaps: water, olive oil and caustic soda. Olive oil, the most beneficial oil for your health, is the primary ingredient. In cosmetics, it has been used since ancient times because of its virtues for glowing hair and skin. Rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins, it has the added benefit of being available virtually everywhere.

      A number of wonderful extra ingredients customize and create a personal soap: beeswax, cocoa butter, clay, kaolin, seaweed, goat milk, egg yolks, and others. Some ingredients give the soap hardness (beeswax), softness (honey) or more foam (cocoa butter) for greater cleansing ability.

      Because using soap is such a sensory experience, a comprehensive section covers essential oils that create the air of perpetual breeze of that good soaps possess. With this information, you can create the perfect scent. The recipes feature essential oils of the highest purity that are added to the soap right before it is placed in molds.

      Easy step-by-step preparation techniques produce luxurious soaps such as:

      • Sandalwood Soap, Kiwi Soap, Chocolate Soap, Wheat Germ Soap, Green Tea Soap, Cedar Soap, Echinacea Soap, Lavender Soap, Marshmallow Soap, Lemon Soap, Rose Hip Soap, Marigold Soap, Coconut Soap, Vanilla Soap, Seaweed Soap, Oat Soap, Clay Soap, Mung Bean Soap, After Eight Soap, Beach Sand Soap

      This fascinating history of soap and its ingredients with therapeutic recommendations is informative and fun to read. The comprehensive recipes with preparation, utensil and ingredient tips guide the reader to create better-than-store-bought quality soaps at home.

      In Missing Microbes, Dr. Martin J. Blaser invites us into the wilds of the human microbiome, where for hundreds of thousands of years bacterial and human cells have existed in a peaceful symbiosis that is responsible for the equilibrium and health of our bodies. Now this invisible Eden is under assault from our overreliance on medical advances including antibiotics and caesarian sections, threatening the extinction of our irreplaceable microbes and leading to severe health consequences. Taking us into the lab to recount his groundbreaking studies, Blaser not only provides elegant support for his theory, he guides us to what we can do to avoid even more catastrophic health problems in the future.
