Formula: 88502

Phase Ingredients % Quantity
A1 titanium paste 4 0,32 gr
A1 brown 23 oxide, cosmetic pigment 2 0,16 gr (1 x PINCH spoon)
A1 pink 80 mica, cosmetic pigment 7 0,56 gr (3 x TAD spoon)

A2 candelilla wax 9 0,72 gr
B vitamin E 0,4 1 drop
B aromatic strawberry extract 2 6 drops

Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:

Add half of the vanilla oil, and the rest of the phase A1 ingredients to a heat-resistant glass. Mix well until a homogeneous paste is obtained.

Add the rest of the vanilla oil and the ingredients of phase A2. Place in a water bath until the waxes have completely melted. It is advisable to use a thermometer to make sure that the carnauba wax is melted (requires approximately 80°C), otherwise the viscosity of the lipstick will be affected.

Remove from the heat source and quickly add the ingredients of phase B. Stir vigorously and then pour quickly into the mold and leave to solidify until the next day. Remove the lipstick from the mold and mount it in the lipstick container (see clip below). Details on how to work with the mold can also be found in its sheet click here.

An emollient, protective lipstick, delicate pink, pearly, with a pleasant aroma given by vanilla oil, cocoa butter and the natural strawberry aroma. 

Options and explanations:

  • instead of the recommended pigments, other pigments may be used depending on the desired color; matte pigments color more intensely compared to pearly pigments
  • titanium paste ensures optimal dispersion of pigments and provides coating power; it is possible to replace it with titanium dioxide + castor oil in equal proportions, provided that it is difficult to make at home a dispersion as fine as that of prefabricated paste; it is also possible to replace the titanium paste with zinc oxide + castor oil in equal proportions, in which case the coating power of the lipstick will be slightly lower and the texture may be slightly coarser; these replacements require a mortar with a pestle
  • vanilla oil can be replaced with another heat-resistant vegetable oil, provided that it contributes to the aroma of the lipstick; almond, apricot kernel, sesame, macadamia or aloe vera oil can be used
  • we do not recommend replacing the waxes used with other types of wax
  • instead of cocoa butter you can use an equally hard butter (murumuru for example, but this is a butter that gives a drier feeling on the lips, which would not be desirable) or you can use shea butter, in which case the percentage of candelilla wax should be increased to about 11% by decreasing the percentage of vanilla oil accordingly
  • instead of the proposed aromatic extract, another one can be used, for example: pineapple, melon, apricot or coconut
