Baking soda is the chemical compound which very often is used for cooking, cleaning or in toothpaste. However, did you know that you could use this ingredient for cosmetic purposes, as well?
“It was 1846 when Dr. Austin Church and John Dwight start to manufacture and sell the compound that today we know as baking soda. By the 1860s, baking soda was included in some published cookbooks but was still primarily known as a cooking additive. However, by the 1920s, its versatility was expanded on and by 1930s it was widely advertised as a “proven medical agent”.
When it comes to cosmetics, the baking soda is the perfect replacement for all the expensive skin care products that are not quite efficient and that also contain chemicals that could cause side-effects. The baking soda is effective as a treatment of rashes and acne.
