How do you make lip balm with Vaseline?

Is beeswax good for lip balm?
Beeswax is perhaps the most essential ingredient in our lip balms. Most lip balms contain artificial and petroleum based chemicals to moisturize, but the use of beeswax instead actually seals that moisture inside your skin, keeping your lips moisturized for the long term.

What wax is best for lip balm?
The most popular plant-based wax for lip balms is carnauba wax. Carnauba wax is used to thicken the lip balm and provide a glossy finish. Lanolin and paraffin are other popular waxes found in lip balms because of their softening properties.
What can you use instead of beeswax for lip balm?

How long does homemade lip balm last?
A. If you do not use any water based products your lip balm should last for a good 6 months plus. There is no one size fits all with this answer as it depends on the ingredients you are using.
Does homemade lip balm expire?
Lip balm does expire, but there isn’t a “one time fits all” expiration date. When it comes to lip balms containing sunscreens and skin protectants (i.e. zinc oxide or titanium dioxide), both ChapStik and Burt’s Bees recommend tossing the balms after one year.
