Solid Lip Gloss Recipe
Most commercial lip glosses contain petroleum-based ingredients which may not be the ideal thing you want to be putting on your mouth.
Making your own lip gloss means you can use great natural oils and butters that not only provide the lovely looking gloss you want, but will actually moisturize your lips and help to prevent and repair damage.
This recipe can also be customized with food-grade flavoring, or micas to add color and shimmer.
