Summer Peach Lip Balm


I love peaches. As a kid my mom always had peaches in the house. Whether we had bottled them ourselves or they were fresh sitting on the counter in their fuzzy glory, we always had peaches. I remember making smoothies with peaches, yogurt, ice and maybe an orange or apple. I can’t tell you how many times I was caught answering the door with a peach smoothie mustache! My poor mother! How about we make a peach lip balm so we get that yummy taste without embarrassing our mothers? I think that sounds like a great idea! Let’s head to the test kitchen. 

I wanted to play around with our new Peach Kernel Oil in this formulation. I was pleasantly surprised to discover how light the oil was in texture, think Coconut Oil Fractions or Squalane. It really is that light! I thought it was just dreamy. It also left a soft velvety feel to my skin. No complaints here!

I also used Hydrogenated Soybean Oil in this formulation. I wanted the creamy feel that Hydrogenated Soybean Oil gives. If you want a creamy feel but a firmer lip balm, I would try using the High Melt Point Shea Butter. That will firm this formulation up considerably while keeping the texture creamy.

I enjoyed the finished lip balm. It was really light in color, something that was unintentional on my part but I really liked that. Most of my lip balms are yellow or darker in color. I think I choose a lot of oils that are darker in color. I liked the different and lighter color that was a result. This lip balm had some smooth glide while feeling light on the lips. Perfect for those who are looking for a light lip balm. There was also a light, natural looking, dare I say shine, to the lips.
