GREEN CHEMISTRY WORKSHOP AT IBC KILIS


The number of artificial chemical substances produced by chemists is over 12 million. Every week, around 6,000 new chemicals are discovered and added to this list. While these substances make daily life easier, they also threaten people and nature with the environmental and health hazards they create.

On 24-25/07/2019, International Blue Crescent Humanitarian Relief and Development Foundation, in collaboration with the Green Chemistry Workshop, which produces solutions to eliminate the problems posed by chemicals in every area of life, facilitated a workshop titled “Non-Toxic Cleaning Products and Natural Personal Care Products”

The workshop, which consisted of two sessions, was facilitated by Chemist Fatih Küçükuysal Chairman of Holistic Health and Ecology Association and was attended by 30 women beneficiaries. The aim of the workshop is to learn the damages of chemical cleaning products sold in the market, to understand the benefits of ecosystem for humanity, to learn the possible damages of personal care products sold in the market and to learn to produce the products used at home in a practical, economic and ecological way.

On the first day of the workshop titled “ Non-toxic cleaning materials”, the beneficiaries learnt how to make eco-friendly soap(  bar shaped, liquid and semi-fluid), dish washer detergents, washing machine detergents, multi-surface cleaning products, drain opening detergents, and room spray air fresheners.

On the second day of the workshop, the beneficiaries learnt to make moisturizing and repairing cream, shampoo,  hair moisturizing cream, face and body masks, deodorants, toothpaste, natural lipstick, rouge, foundation cream, foundation and tonic cream.

The products prepared by the chemist were given out  to the beneficiaries as a thank you gesture from the trainer for their participation. The beneficiaries stated that they apply what they learnt and make their own natural products at home as they are more economical and healthy.
