I am not a Cosmetic Chemist, but I am interested in making my own lipstick/balm. Here is a list of ingredients I have been playing around with so far and found a pretty decent consistency: Beeswax, jojoba oil, coconut oil, castor oil, Vitamin E oil, and peppermint oil.
(I use dyes and different ratios of these when making lipstick). I am just wondering if adding more ingredients, such as shea butter or coco butter would make the product more conditioning? Also, is there an oil I should add to make it even better? Grape seed oil? Neem oil? Almond oil?!
Sorry for the layman's terms, Chemists
Thanks for reading!
