  • Chapstic-I want to make this Chapstic

    Posted by arizona1az420 on November 9, 2016 at 11:16 am

    I’m interested in making a chapstic. Here is a list of ingredients in the chapstic that I really like. Most recipe’s I see online seem pretty simple for creating chapstic. Basically put in pan, heat on stove/microwave and let cool and it’s done. So my question is, what ingredients below would be the most beneficial and allow me to just mix and heat. I want to be able to just buy the ingredients and make myself, but don’t want to have to buy every ingredient listed below, and I don’t need the sunscreen. How can I simplify these ingredients for less, any ideas? Thanks!

    Main ingredients are these below:

    Shea, Mango, and Tucuma Butters

    Active Ingredientss: Dimethicone 2.0% (w/w) Lip protectant
    Octinoxate 6.6% (w/w) Sunscreen
    Oxybenzone 3.0% (w/w) Sunscreen

    Inactive ingredients aloe barbadensis leaf extract, alumina, arachidyl alcohol, arachidyl glucoside, astrocaryum tucuma seed butter, beeswax, behenyl alcohol, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, bis-stearyl dimethicone, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, C10-30 cholesterol/lanosterol esters, cetyl dimethicone, cetyl palmitate, flavors, hydrogenated castor oil, hydrogenated polyisobutene, isopropyl myristate, isostearoyl hydrolyzed silk, jojoba esters, mangifera indica (mango) seed butter, microcrystalline wax, myristyl myristate, octyldodecanol, paraffin, pentaerythrityl tetraethylhexanoate, petrolatum, phenoxyethanol, polyhydroxystearic acid, saccharin, silica, titanium dioxide, tocopheryl acetate
