Does anyone know of a fabulous natural moisturiser I can make myself? It has to be vegan so no beeswax, and I don't like just oil. I'm searching the internet for one but I'd love a recommendation. :toothy4:

I don't know about making one your self but I use Earthbound Organics products - they are lovely very reasonably priced and work really well - they even make me look human! :wink:

If you're lookig at making it yourself, you can get Olive Wax instead of beeswax and substitute it. Olive wax is a bit softer and is brilliant in lotions. Its made from Olives (ithink its something left after theoil has been extracted,but don't quote me on it), its a bit more expensive than beeswax, but it is a viable vegan alternative.

try www.fresholi.co.uk for ingredients, and they have a great forum for tips and recipes - tell Helen that i sent you, i'm still alive, just not on the net much...
