Is it safe to make lip balm with crayons?
Although our products are nontoxic, we do not recommend using them to make eyeliner, lipstick or other makeup, and strongly discourage their use in this manner. Because they were never meant to be used as makeup, our colored pencils or crayons have not been tested in the same way and should not be used as a cosmetic.
How do you make colored lip balm?
- Melt beeswax and cocoa butter in a double boiler. (I use a glass Pyrex® mixing bowl in a saucepan of boiling water.)
- Once melted, add the infused sweet almond oil.
- Stir well.
- Remove from heat carefully (it will be hot!).
- Pour into lip balm tins or tubes.
- Allow to cool completely and then cap.
Can we use crayons on lips?
Just because a crayon is not toxic if a child accidentally ingests it, does not automatically mean it is safe to use on the lips over time. Also, crayons are not intended to be ingested or used on the lips, so crayon manufacturers have no need to use approved FDA colorants for lip products.
Are crayons safe?
Crayons are quite safe. Crayons are generally made from wax and coloring. The ingredients are considered non-toxic and most cases will not require medical attention. However, if a crayon is eaten, it may cause an upset stomach.
