johnb

Hello I'm Johnb. I'm very old but have considerable experience in our industry having worked for Unilever, Paterson Zochonis and was Chief Chemist at a French Perfumery House for more than ten years- that's after initially working ten years in scientific research for the UK government. Old, maybe, but my brain still works (even if the body is a bit decrepit) and I hope to be able to make some useful contribution to the group. My expertise is in deodorants and antiperspirants, fragrances, skincare and small molecule topical pharmaceuticals. I have also worked in a number of other areas that involve fragrances including I&I, air fresheners and so on.

    Hi John, 

    I wondered if you could help considering your experience with a beard! 

    I understand I have to be flexible with the "100% natural" and after reading through the forum people get hung up on plant based. 

    Could you help me with a simple formula where I can add my own essential oils, to create a beard and body wash / Shower gel ? 

    I want to keep as close to "Natural" as possible but I know I can use naturally derived ingredients.

    Thanks
