    Formulating sun screen cream/after sun lotion

    So what I'm gathering is, it shouldn't be made. If that's the case why are there so many DIY for making Sunscreen? Also what about an after sun care lotion made with aloe Vera oil, is that even possible either since sunscreen isnt possible as an DIY?

    Thinking about making shaving soap but have questions

    LOL actually I was referring to the comment that aren't related to the subject at all, you know how some ppl will add comments that belong to another thread and go way way off topic that aren't even related to the shaving soap.
