Cosmetic Chemistry for Kids

Cosmetic Chemistry for Kids

Presented by: Katie Barry (Lynnwood, WA)

A family-friendly, hands-on, kid-powered, and educational project creating cosmetics using basic chemistry and simple household ingredients. Kids, teens, and parents will enjoy making lip balm, perfume, and bath salts. Participants will learn how chemistry creates spa items that don’t cost as much as store bought products. This exhibit will be run by teen girls who enjoy doing DIY projects and experimenting. (With parental supervision, of course!)
