Before beginning my attempt to make my own cosmetics and makeup from scratch, I pay a visit to Azteca Color in Oaxaca City, Mexico to learn how to raise and harvest the cochineal bug.
These little bugs produce carminic acid, a common red dye used in cloth dying, food coloring, and makeup.

Thanks to in Oaxaca for their help making this video!

|| ABOUT ||
Today, getting what you need is as easy as a trip to the store. From food to clothing, energy, medicine, and so much more, Andy George will discover what it takes to make everything from scratch. His mission is to understand the complex processes of manufacturing that is often taken for granted and do it all himself. Each week he’s traveling the world to bypass the modern supply chain in order to harvest raw materials straight from the source. Along the way, he’s answering the questions you never thought to ask.
