Here are the last of the Visual Ingredients posters I’m planning to make. Here’s Chanel No. 5 and a cheap (but also popular) deodorant as well just for the comparison’s sake. Enjoy!
More book reviews coming soon. At the beginning of the year, I set a goal of reading and reviewing 104 books in 2013… I’ve read 87 so far, and the reviews are either uploaded or queued. That leaves me with 17 books and 13 days in which to read them!
This image is one of three “Visual Ingredients” images that I’m making. The aim is to reinvigorate bewildering shampoo labels and get people thinking about everyday Chemistry.
One day, I’ll hire a programmer to get this entire process automated. You’ll be able to search for any product, and then see its ingredients visualised on a poster like this—on demand. What do you think?
And one more thing: does anyone know what a “polyparaben” is?
What do those ingredients on the back of the shampoo bottle mean?
This graphic might give you some clues. In some cases, I’ve replaced the name on the bottle with a name that’s more commonly-used by chemists on this chart. All ingredients are in the same order as on the bottle—top to bottom, then left to right. Enjoy!
