Cosmetics as a High School Science Project

Recently, I had a Mom from Florida call to order our mineral makeup kit for her daughter. The daughter wanted to explain the making of cosmetics in a science exhibit for her school. Brilliant!

In addition to selling them the kit, I immediately directed them to this very excellent, non-commerical website about pigments, Pigments Through The Ages:

This site has lots of pretty pictures and easy-to-read historical info about pigments but it also drills down into fascinatnig details on chemical structure and manufacture.

The sister sites include Causes of Color and Color, Vision and Art, both wonderful sites for your budding scientist/artist.
