CREST Bronze Award – typically 10 hours of project work
Make and test bath bombs
You‟ll need two things for this project:
First, you‟ll need a recipe for homemade bath bombs. You can often find recipes on the internet by doing a simple search (try typing “homemade bath bomb” into a search engine”). You may also be able to find the recipes in books in the library.
Second, you‟ll need a mould to make your bath bomb the right shape. You could buy one, recycle something, or make your own.
CREST Silver Award – typically 30 hours of project work
Make and test your own lipstick or lip gloss
First things first, find a lipstick recipe. These are readily available if you have a look on the internet (try typing “homemade lipstick” into a search engine). This not only gives you the recipes, it also has an online shop for all the ingredients.
CREST Gold Award – typically 70+ hours of project work
Investigate the properties of lipstick
In this project you will investigate the ingredients of lipsticks. You will work out why lipsticks are certain colours, and work out how to change the consistency of lipstick, controlling it‟s "spreadability‟.
