If you like to wear makeup, but are concerned about the chemicals it contains and about animal testing, then you are not alone. Many women are turning to natural products and makeup as an alternative that better suits a healthy lifestyle. We think you look great just the way you are, but if you are going to wear makeup, we want you to be safe. That’s why the experts at HealthCheck Systems are bringing you a series on natural beauty products that you can make yourself in your kitchen.

This recipe for mascara comes from the ebook Eat My Makeup

To make your own mascara, you need a few ingredients which you can get from your local health food store (even the charcoal).

1 tsp coconut oil

1 1/2 tsp beeswax

1 tsp shea butter

4 tsp of aloe vera gel

1-2 capsules of activated charcoal

How to make it:

Put the coconut oil, beeswax shea and aloe vera in a small pot and heat very slowly over a very low heat. Stir continuously until all the ingredients have melted. Now take your pot off the stove and add the charcoal. Stir it really well. Use a funnel to pour the liquid into an old mascara tube. Before you reuse the old mascara tube, make sure you have sterilized it by leaving it in hot water.

If you don’t have a funnel, leave the mascara to cool a little, then pour it into a plastic bag. Cut a small hole in the plastic bag and squeeze the liquid into the mascara tube.

This is a great way to enjoy your makeup without the chemicals!
