Firm and Glossy Lip Balm

Introduction

We have added several new butters, waxes and oils to our catalog. With these new additions we wanted to put together a recipe for a new lip balm! We think this is a smooth, buttery lip balm with no grainy feel or odd texture.

This was made on the blog on May 25th 2010.

Ingredients

    9 grams Candelilla Wax
    8 grams Carnauba Wax
    5 grams Tamanu Oil
    10 grams Avocado Butter
    10 grams Mango Butter
    14 grams White Cocoa Butter
    10 grams Emu Oil
    10 grams Castor Oil
    12 grams Shea Oil
    12 grams Apricot Kernel Oil
    1 gram Vitamin E Acetate
    6 grams Grape Flavor Oil

Equipment

    Scale with at least 1 gram readability
    Glass Beaker or Pyrex container
    Spoon
    Transfer Pipettes (droppers)
    Microwave
    1/3 oz Lip Tins or
    Lip Balm Tubes or
    Lip Balm Jars

Instructions

Using the scale, weigh all ingredients except flavor oil into a glass beaker or Pyrex container. Melt ingredients in microwave on high for 30 second intervals. Once the mixture is completely melted add the flavor oil. Stir using the pipette. Using the transfer pipettes (droppers), fill your choice of container. Allow to firm before capping. The mixture will completely firm in about 10 minutes, if you have normal room temperatures. If mixture starts to set up inside the beaker, melt it in the microwave again.

Comments

This is a firm yet smooth lip balm with no graininess. If you want to add a different flavor, be sure to check the Flavor Oil section of our catalog for recommendations.

Yield

approximately 18 Lip Balm Tubes, or 9 Lip Balm Jars, or 7 1/3 oz Lip Tins
