Cosmetics – Useful Links

[Qui trovate la versione italiana di questo articolo]

If you have read my articles about DIY cosmetics, you probably wonder where to get additional information about theory, more formulas and where to buy stuff.

Many online resources are already mentioned and linked in all my posts, but I thought it could be a good idea to collect them all in the same place, such that you can always find them.

There are a lot more: these are only the ones I know and I ordered from (or I know people who did). If you know of any other reliable supplier, feel free to contact me and tell me about them!

Packaging suppliers

You can find packaging material for your cosmetics in alla the websites linked above. Aroma Zone is one of the best equipped in this regard.

In addition, I like to use glass jars and bottles for my cosmetics, that I buy in shops that sell glass jars and packaging for jams.
