Hi, I live in a great area of Australia and my focus in on natural nutrition and skin and body products. I create natural toothpastes, deodorant, insect repellents, organic skin care and spa body products. I have a keen interest in real food, detox programs and healthy weight loss. My 10 grandchildren think I'm cool . . because I make fun stuff with them. This is an area I haven't dabbled in for a long time, so I appreciative your collective experience. If I can assist any of you with my knowledge I am happy to do so. Cheers to the pleasures of being healthy and happy. Carol

Wow . . what a wealth of information, Thank you Aaronut. Great research. I will need to consider all this and apply to the task. It seems what lose in one sense you gain in another. I enjoy your input, smile.

actually, I can imagine more dramas with setting points and sugars and more with confectionery than making cosmetics

well i was thinking about the cohesiveness so seems like thats not too big an issue if i play with your recommendations of gelatine and agar. I have access to professional colours and fruit flavours and love the idea of experimenting with real fruit juice concentrates or purees. I will need to have some hands on with xylitol too. Thank you for your interest and support Aaronut
