Purely cosmetic

27th January 2006 at 00:00
The Bare Facts website aims to give pupils an interactive introduction to the science behind popular cosmetics and toiletry products, including why we use them, what they are made from, and how they work. The site also encourages students to look at the design, manufacture and marketing of cosmetic products and toiletries. It is aimed at key stage 3, but the site may also be applicable to lower-ability KS4 pupils. Under the Teacher's Notes section there are fact sheets, ideas for activities and worksheets, as well as links to other useful websites covering cosmetic products such as make-up, deodorant, hair products and toothpaste.
