Nourishing and protective lip balm

Formula: FM11231

Phase Ingredients for ~15 ml % Quantity
A cocoa butter 40 6 ml (5,5 gr)
A sesame oil 44 6,6 ml (6,1 gr)
A carnauba wax 3 0,4 gr
B glycerin, vegetable 5 0,8 ml (0,9 gr)
B honey 5 0,8 ml (1 gr)
B red 77 mica, cosmetic pigment 2 0,3 gr /or a little more
C orange essential oil 1 3-5 drops

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

Transfer the ingredients from phase A to a heat-resistant container and heat in a water bath to 80°C. After melting the container is removed from the heat source (the composition must be clear, translucent). It is important to respect the indicated temperature, otherwise the carnauba wax will not perform its function.

The composition is left to cool to body temperature, it can be placed in a bowl with cold water to accelerate the cooling process. Now add the ingredients from phase B one by one, stirring vigorously after each one.

Finally add the essential oil and mix again. The resulting composition is transferred to the dedicated container, sealed and left until the next day to finalize the consistency.

The result is a solid lip balm that, when applied, melts easily in contact with the lips. For those who prefer a softer composition, reduce the volume of cocoa butter and increase the volume of sesame oil proportionally.

The pigment can be dosed according to your preferences and can be replaced with another color. If the balm is used in the summer, the orange essential oil will be replaced with an aromatic extract or can be removed from the recipe.
