URGENT- Lip Balm too soft
I am working on a vegan lip balm that is being poured hot into a mold and once cool, transferred to a stick like a lipstick.
The formula that has worked so far is -
Oil - 73.8% (Carrier is Sweet Almond Oil)
Candelilla wax - 15%
Flavor - 5%
Shea Butter - 1%
Cocoa Butter - 5%
Vit E- 0.2%
It has worked in the smaller mold trays that I have (5-10 at a time) but once I tried it in the larger trays (75 at a time) I noticed it was breaking a lot more during the molding process and also once someone tried using it on the lips.
I am very confused because the smaller runs are all good with very few that are breaking during demolding.
Any advice on what needs to be done? Does the formula need to be reworked? Or is there a process mistake I am making?
