Lip Balm/Lipstick Making Class

(1 hour; can be added on to any other class)

Learn how to make your own lip balm & lipstick in this hands-on class!  This class is for those who want to learn how to make & customize their own products and stop buying commercial, store-bought ones that are laden with harmful additives, including unnecessary chemicals, preservatives, petroleum by-products, etc.

Make your own creamy lip products with a tried-and-true recipe using 100% natural ingredients, including beeswax and other moisturizing oils & butters (some have natural SPF or sun protection).   

We'll cover the following:

  • The materials & ingredients needed and where to get them (I provide a suppliers' list as part of the class handout)
  • How to adjust the recipe, if desired, based on your personal preferences (e.g. the texture or consistency) 
  • How to choose & work with preservatives, which are provided in the class
  • How to choose & work with colorants to create a lipstick (lip-safe mica powders, which are provided in the class)
  • How to safely work with essential oils* & avoid phototoxicity, which occurs when UV rays interact with a substance you've applied on your skin, resulting in a bad sunburn, blistering, premature aging and can increase the risk of skin cancer

Then you'll make the only lip products you'll ever want to use again! ...and with no harmful ingredients.  You'll go home with 5 tubes and a thorough, detailed instructional handout, including the ingredients needed/recipe and a list of materials/equipment & online suppliers.  All handouts are emailed as PDFs after the class.

* Important Note: Everything is provided in the class, as well as some snacks & tea.  However, fragrances are no longer offered because continual exposure causes the teacher allergies, but feel free to bring your own fragrances to class to add to your products.  They will be discussed in class.
