Light Coconut Lip Oil

I love light, treatment style lip oils. They are perfect for when your lips are super dry and water just isn’t cutting it. Light lip oils are not heavy or tacky. They are great for chapped lip because they allow the lips to slide over each other instead of catching. Doesn’t that sound great? Let’s head off to the kitchen!I started this formulation with Aloe Butter. It has a dreamy texture and a lower melt point allowing for light, smooth gliding during and after application. The Aloe Butter also prevents this formulation from being so liquid it leaks out of the Doe Foot Pen.

Next I used Macadamia Nut Oil. This is a light to medium weight oil. Popular in massages, it adds nice glide without feeling overwhelmingly heavy.

At this point, I still needed something a little more solid to keep it from leaking all over the place. Cocoa Butter is a perfect choice, especially considering it will melt on the skin! I chose to use Deodorized Cocoa Butter so it would not interfere with any flavors I might choose to use.

My formulation was still to high in liquid oils so I added Beeswax. This does two major things in this formulation. First, it keeps it viscous enough to stay in the pen and second, once applied, it gives a protective coating to the lips. This makes it perfect for dry and/or cracked lips.

Lastly, I used Vitamin E Acetate. Vitamin E Acetate is an anti-oxident. It prevents your oils from oxidizing or in the case of a lip product, tasting funny. Vitamin E Acetate is a wonderful product to use, particularly if you are using oils with a shorter shelf life.
