Soy Butter Lip Balm 7


Last week, we released Soy Butter and I was so excited to have a new ingredient option for making lip balms. As this is used to help make lip balms that don’t have fractionation issues in the summer, I had to make a lip balm with this fantastic butter. The lip balm has a fantastic light and glossy feel.

We also added a new flavor to our collection yesterday and I had to try it! The Cranberry Flavor is sweet and perfect for anyone who enjoys cranberry sauce.

Collect supplies:
Beeswax
Soy Butter
Cocoa Butter (I used White Cocoa Butter)
Sweet Almond Oil
Flavor Oil of your Choice (I’m using the Cranberry Flavor Oil)
Oil Soluble Lip Color, if desired (I’m using the Ruby Oil Soluble Lip Color)
Lip Balm Containers of your choice
Container for mixing ingredients
Scale
Transfer Pipettes

Recipe for 0.6 ounce of lip balm (Makes 4 regular tubes):
0.12 ounces Beeswax
0.24 ounces Soy Butter
0.06 ounces Cocoa Butter
0.18 ounces Sweet Almond Oil
0.04 to 0.06 ounces Cranberry Flavor Oil

Recipe for 7.8 ounces of lip balm (Makes 52 regular tubes):
1.56 ounces Beeswax
3.12 ounces Soy Butter
0.78 ounces Cocoa Butter
2.34 ounces Sweet Almond Oil
0.312 to .468 ounces Cranberry Flavor Oil

Weigh all ingredients except for the Cranberry Flavor Oil into the container for mixing. Microwave in short bursts until the oils are completely melted. The beeswax and cocoa butter will take the longest to melt, so if you don’t want to wait for those to melt, you can use the Beeswax Prills and chop the cocoa butter into small crumbles. After the oils have been melted, add the flavor oil and color, if desired. Once the flavor has been mixed into the lip balm, you are now ready to fill your lip balm tubes. Don’t be alarmed if the lip balm sets up quickly! I’ve found it is one of the quirks of a Soy Butter lip balm!

We have also added some new fragrances and I will be sending out soap samples of these new fragrances. Don’t worry! I’ll label them with their names!

Enjoy!

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    Gorgeous color! And I bet it tastes great too! I’ve been using cosmetic grade soy wax in some of my lip balms with good response. People really do like the feel and it is supposedly quite beneficial to the skin, so I’m looking forward to trying the soy butter.

    Now I have a small request. My scale doesn’t measure 0.6 oz. I’m wondering, if it isn’t too much trouble, if future formulas could be done in 100 grams? Then it would be easy to size up to my normal batch (25 lip balm tubes) from there.

    THANKS!

    Zany-

    Recipe in grams (Makes 4 tubes)
    3.4 grams Beeswax
    6.8 grams Soy Butter
    1.7 grams Cocoa Butter
    5.1 grams Sweet Almond Oil
    1.13 to 1.7 grams Cranberry Flavor Oil

    I will make a memo to myself to make sure there are versions of the recipes that include grams.

    Enjoy!

    I love using your white lip balm tubes with colored lids. I noticed that they are fitting tighter than they used to, and have a few of them split when I put them on the tubes. The white caps seem to fit much looser. Just thought you might want to know if you didn’t already! I have lots of customers who love my lip butters. 🙂

    The soy butter in this recipe does not seem to be available anymore… can the hydrogenated soy butter be used instead, or will it make the balm fractionate?

      The Soy Butter in this recipe was discontinued. It is the same as Hydrogenated Soybean Oil. The Soy Butter was just processed a little differently. You can use the Hydrogenated Soybean Oil instead without any changes. This oil is not prone to fractionation.

    I was wondering if you could alter the recipe to make 1 oz. I’m sorry for the hassle but I’m not good with measurements Ans want to use this recipe as a base for ear balm for my stretched lobes. Thanks.

      Here is the recipe in percentages.
      20% Beeswax
      40% Soy Butter
      10% Cocoa Butter
      30% Sweet Almond Oil

      For a 1 ounce recipe, it would be the following recipe:
      0.2 ounces Beeswax
      0.4 ounces Soy Butter
      0.1 ounces Cocoa Butter
      0.3 ounces Sweet Almond Oil

      I hope this helps!
