Hi, We are a startup in Africa wanting to produce lipsticks using your products. I would like to get some buying advice. From what I can understand we need to purchase the Lipstick Base. Then we just need to mix it with the Lip Powder. Is that correct? Or is something else needed? Do we need to also purchase the taste/smells separately? And then we need the Mold Release, where can I find this item? For making Lipgloss, do I use the same Lipstick Base or another base? Then I will mix it with the Lip Liquid and not the Lip Powder? And will I also need the taste/smell here? Thanks for your support. br, Anders Nielsen
There are many different types of lip products. This lipstick base is suitable for making a STICK lipstick which will have a creamy texture.
You can find more information about how to make a lipstick, generally at this location: https://howtomakecosmetics.com/pages/lipstick-quick-start. In particular, watch the embedded video at that page.
Tastes and smells would be purchased separately, yes. We do not sell those at this site.
A Mold Release is any kind of oil that will help the hardened stick release from the mold. You could use olive oil, silicone oil, coconut oil. We sell Dimethicone 100 which would be recommended for that use.
To make a soft, buttery lipgloss that goes into a pot, you could purchase our Lip Gloss Base or you could simply add some oil, such as Castor Oil to the Lip Stick base to make it softer.
Most lipsticks are colored with a blend of pigments, dyes and micas. You may also find further information in our Knowledge Base. You will find that at our website, right hand side where the tab says "get help".
If it is oil and wax base only do you need a preservative
A lot of people feel that if a product has no water phase it is not necessary to use a preservative. And, this product as wel sell it also does not contain a preservative. We have many customers who make a lip product from it and do not add a preservation system.
Having said that, if you are making a finished product for sale to consumers, a preservation system is a good idea. Once the product is in use, introduced to the mucous membranes of the lips and touched by fingertips, etc., bacteria may be introduced in a limited way.
Adding a preservative to your finished products for resale is just good manufacturing practice.
