I'd like to do a project on making soaps using products that will effect the environment in positive ways. I'm thinking of using natural products.
Another idea I had was making chap stick, using natural products.

To do the soaps I was thinking of trying to make it from scratch like ttp://planetgreen.discovery.com/fashion-beauty/homemade-organic-soap.html site suggests as a way to leave out the chemicals that are used because they are the ingredient that harms the environment. Or there's a family run business in Weare, NH that comes to the New Boston Farmer's Markets every weekend, so if I can I'm going to see how they make their soaps to get some ideas for how to make mine.
