Hi Blue,

I do not know much about lotions. A web search for “lotion” just seems to yield different brands of lotion to purchase and a band called “Lotion.” Do you get different results?

What were your thoughts on what you were trying to accomplish with the lotion in the project? Namely what is being measured, hypotheses, etc? You could work on those with your team And I’ll help any way I can.

So glad you're interested in undertaking a science project. Be sure to read all the info available on ScienceBuddy - including tips on choosing a project. To save you trouble down the road, be aware that product testing projects aren't looked upon so highly, the investigation on how lotions work sounds great although 1. are you going to have the resources to find some solid answers, such as molecular technology? 2. I'm sure those companies know exactly how lotions work, this info might be easily available online too. Think these issues over, I'll be on AIM: HScienceGuy if you ever want additional science project help. Good luck with your project,
