  • What is the most moisturising ingredient you can put in lipstick?

    Posted by Lauralala on October 23, 2022 at 2:54 am

    Coco caprylate and sunflower lecithin are glide and creamy ingredients in my lipstick but I’m struggling on getting my lipstick moisturising enough. 
    Upping sunflower lecithin makes it creamier but not moldable. 
    Please list me with some great moisturising ingredients. (Natural and naturally derived only).
    And will vegetable glycerine help?

    You could look at these ingredients:

    EndiMoist® 3OS from Coast Southwest


    Hyacolor™ Bloomage Biotechnology Corp., Ltd.


    EndiMoist® OS  from Coast Southwest

    I think they are exactly what you are looking for @@Lauralala .

    Post your formula.  There is no other way to tell.

    Safest way is to add butters. Go with Shea butter (1-4%) and cocoa butter (1-2%). Make sure these butters are cosmetic/edible grade.

    You can also try Lexfeel shine. I know you’re looking for naturally derived chemicals, however if you are prepared to add glycerine (which i personally wouldn’t suggest using in lipsticks) why not go for propylene glycol dibenzoate (Lexfeel shine) This product imparts gloss and moisturizes your lips.
