I am often asked if it is really possible to create excellent skincare (or even skincare that is ‘good enough’) with a bare minimum of ingredients. My answer is always the same: yes, it is.
There is, of course, a little more to it than that, but here are the headlines:
Working with quality ingredients gives you a far better chance of acheiving a quality end result.
Knowing and understanding the ingredients you are working with allows you to tweak, change, customize and make substitutions.
Yes, there is a lot of trial and testing, research and study involved, but if you are working with something you are passionate about, all of that is a labor of love and excellence becomes a natural result.
