A. Hello, my name is Morgan Powell
B. Capture the attention of your Judges.
C. For my project, I decided to make different types of organic beauty or skincare products. So one problem in today’s society is that women, and sometimes men, are often using beauty and skincare products that contain harsh chemicals that are actually doing more damage than repair. Did you know that chemicals are more likely to absorb into your bloodstream through your skin than if you were to ingest them? It’s causing multiple health and skin problems. Women are using these products thinking that it’s going to help them when in reality it’s just making it worse. For example, almost every female I know is using or has used Bath and Bodyworks lotion or perfume. What people don’t realize, however, is that the fragrance used in those products contain phthalates which are linked to birth defects, infertility, and sometimes even cancer. They also contain a chemical called dimethacone, which is known to cause irritation and inflammation on the skin. So basically, these products are doing the exact opposite of what they say they can do you for you. In my paper I stated that most popular makeup brands are using harsh chemicals that cause women to age faster and get break out on the face.
A. For my product, I have brought in some skincare products that I made myself using natural ingredients that you can find in stores, or on the internet. The process was fun but a little difficult at the same time. I had some trouble finding some of the ingredients just because a lot of stores don’t sell them. I had to order some things online. So the first thing I made was a lip balm made of beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, and some essential oil. It was actually pretty easy to make except for the fact that I had to make it twice because I had bought the wrong shea butter and it completely messed up the whole thing. So after I did some more research on it, I found 100% raw shea butter and it worked perfectly.
B. I had a large learning stretch while doing this project. I learned so much about what different oils can do for you skin and your health. Coconut oil is great for your hair. It helps your hair become stronger and grow faster. Almond oil has vitamin A content which can help prevent future acne when applied to the face. I also learned a lot about the importance of essential oils. Not only are they better for you than artificial fragrances, but they can help with your mental health by relaxing your nerves. For example, most spas use aroma therapy to help with the calming process. Lavender is one of the more popular essential oil scents that people are using just because it has an amazing calming effect. I used essential oils in all of my products because they’re organic and better for the skin, and they actually smell better than the artificial fragrances that are used in normal products.
C. Now that my product is completed, I feel more accomplished and proud because I put in a lot of effort and worked hard to make it.
A. I learned that procrastinating really isn’t an option when it comes to big projects like this. It took a lot of time and work and I’m glad that I took the time to do it because it was actually a fun process. At first, I thought I wanted to pursue a career in the beauty and makeup industry, but now I see that it might not be the career for me. I am still deciding on what I want to do after school.
B. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful night.
