Lip Balm for cylinders / tins / pots

image of someone applying lip balm with cocoa butter

Stage 1: (heat until melted)
22% Cocoa Butter
20% Beeswax
12% Soya Wax

Stage 2: (room temperature)
14% White Poppy Seed Oil
14% Tomato Seed Oil
7% Meadowfoam Oil
7% Baobab Oil
3.7% Ecosilk
0.3% Aroma Flavour
100% Total

Method:

Break Cocoa Butter and Beeswax into small pieces and melt with Soya Wax in a Bain Marie. When fully melted, take off the heat and cool slightly. Add stage 2 ingredients and stir until fully incorporated. Allow to cool. Begin to set up your containers and gently reheat the mixture in a Bain Marie. It only needs to be soft enough to pour into containers. We have found this method helps the Aroma to incorporate fully into the lip balm base. Fill containers and date and label.

Please check the IFRA limits for Lip Balms (IFRA Class 1) for the individual Aroma Flavours as they may be different to the 0.3% we have included in our recipe. If they can be used at a higher percentage you may increase the amount of Aroma Flavour and decrease the amount of EcoSilk accordingly but do check that your changes still total 100%.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“You will need to experiment to see what works best for you. Increasing the percentage of liquid ingredients may make the lip balm too soft whereas increasing the percentage of cocoa butter may make it too firm. Perhaps try a combination of both liquid ingredients and cocoa butter to compensate for the lower amount of wax used.”

if you wanted to use candelilla wax which is usually used at 50% of beeswax, would you make up the difference from all other ingredients to make up to 100% or just use difference to increase cocoa butter?
