What wax can you use 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.

How can I make my lip balm thicker?
Generally speaking, you need to use roughly 15-20% beeswax to 25-30% butter and 45-50% oil. The more butter and wax you use, the thicker or ‘sturdier’ your lip balm will be. This is good if you want your lip balm to stay on for quite a while. It will also be ‘creamier’, which is how we like it!
Which butter is best for lip balm?
Shea Butter: Soft and creamy, shea butter adds a mild firmness to lip products. Shea butter melts on contact with the skin, making it a popular choice for lip products. Shea butter is a great substitute for avocado butter.
Is beeswax better than soy wax?
Candle Life: Because beeswax is a much denser material than soy wax, beeswax candles should burn for a longer amount of time than soy candles. Mixing soy wax with paraffin to make the material denser doesn’t help, since paraffin burns quickly, too.
Is soy wax safe for skin?
By using soy oil rather than traditional waxes, such as paraffin or beeswax, the candle is safe and comfortable to use on your skin. The all-natural ingredients are safe for the skin and can be used all over the body. Recommended use for anywhere you would apply other beauty products.
Can you sell homemade lip balm?
Cosmetic products and ingredients do not need FDA premarket approval. So you can create lip balm and sell it without getting an OK from the government. However, the FDA can enforce action against products on the market that don’t comply with the laws mentioned in their guidelines.
Is paraffin wax safe for lip balm?
Any stick with Cera Microcristallina, Hydrogenated Microcrystalline Wax, or Caresin should not make its way into your pocket. Instead, go for lip balms made from vegetable oils and fats or beeswax.  Mineral oils include paraffinum liquidum, petrolatum, microcrystalline wax or paraffin.
Can I use soy candle wax as lotion?
The wax in soy candles is made from the oil of soybeans rather than the typical paraffin wax in most candles. After you burn a soy candle and let it cool a bit, you can use the softened wax as a moisturizer.
