Candy Corn Lip Balm Day 2 1


Today we are going to be working on changing the formula to firm up the lip balm. I am going to try to achieve this by taking out the Hemp Butter and using White Cocoa Butter instead. Part of my problem is that there are too many soft oils in this formulation. White Cocoa Butter is a brittle fixed oil at room temperature and this should help the formulation.

Instructions
Carefully weigh all ingredients in a microwave-safe container into 2 separate 100 gram batches except for the Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil and the Lip Balm Colors. One batch will be colored orange and one batch will be colored white. Stir between short bursts in the microwave. To make orange lip balm add small amounts of Coral Lip Balm Color and Yellow Lip Balm Color until the desired color is achieved. Stir well. To make white lip balm add a small amount of White Lip Balm Color into the melted 100 gram batch. Stir well. Add the Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil into each batch. Stir well. Pour the white lip balm mixture into lip tubes first, being careful to fill only half of the lip balm tube. Fill the other half of the lip tubes with the orange lip balm mixture. Cap with a yellow cap.

This formulation is an improvement but it is still too soft. You may have noticed that I used Coral and Yellow Lip Balm Color today and this gave a more vibrant, brilliant orange color. Using Ruby and Yellow Lip Balm Color creates a softer orange. Who would have thought? I was careful to heat the mixture thoroughly and this time I did not get fractionation. Tomorrow I will tweak the formula again to get a firmer balm that is appropriate for lip tubes.

    These are so cute, and will be perfect as handouts at the office Halloween get-together – as opposed to more candy!
