Beachy Lip Balm Recipe

Isn't this a cute lip balm? I think it is. This reminds me of a beach ball hence the name Beachy Lip Balm. It is in an unique container which gives the round shape. Well, I happened to see this recipe for this Beachy Lip Balm from a site that I follow called DIY Skincare (Do It Yourself Skincare). DIY Skincare happens to be the company blog for Bath Body Supply in Ohio.

In this project, it calls for the person to purchase a Natural Lip Balm Base (For Sticks) from Bath Body Supply. The ingredients in this particular product are Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil (and) Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol (and) Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil (and) Beeswax (and) Hydrogenated Castor Oil (and) Glycine Soja (Soybean) Lipids (and) Lauryl Laurate (and) Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax (and) Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax. Some of you maybe concerned with Lauryl Laurate ingredient in this base and wonder if you can subsitute your own lip balm recipe. Now I am not sure about that, but since this ingredient has Carnauba and Candelilla Waxes instead of beeswax your recipe should have those two waxes instead. You can give it a try and see how it works. Just let us know how it turned out.
