Booming demand for cosmetics has resulted in steady increase in the sale of substandard products in the market. Most of them are severely commercial and lack natural touch. Spurious cosmetics use harmful ingredients and cause allergies, discolouration, texture alteration or permanent damage to the skin and hair. Increased usage and unregulated production of cosmetics has led to steep rise in side effects suffered by the consumers.
The GCCI women’s wing organized a half day workshop on natural cosmetics at the convention hall conducted by Dr. Gauri Bobhate, a homeopathic doctor and cosmetologist by profession. She demonstrated how to make their own skincare products like handmade soaps, lip balm, exfoliating scrubs, shampoos, various types of masks suited for every skin type, hand and body creams and many more organic beauty products from naturally available ingredients.
Earlier, Dr Jennifer Kamat, chairperson, GCCI women wing, welcomed the participants, Fauzia Khan, member, WW Committee, spoke on basic skin care and FDA Licensing Requirements while, member Sonali Nagvenkar, proposed the vote of thanks. The workshop was supported by The Saraswat Cooperative Bank and Shree Sainath Jewellers and was attended by around 60 participants. Asha Arondekar, member, WW committee, compered the program.
