Vegan Lip Stain Recipe
Author: Wholesale Supplies Plus
Sunday, January 1, 2017

This natural and vegan lip stain doubles as a moisturizer. Alkanet root powder is infused into the melted butters and oils, which will leave a soft pink color on lips. Coconut oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter and jojoba oil combine to give your lips a supple softness while candellila wax adds the hardness needed to keep the product solid in your purse or pocket.

Recipe Directions

NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  1. Weigh coconut oil, cocoa butter, jojoba oil and shea butter. Place in pan and melt over low heat. 
  2. Scoop 1 tsp. of Alkanet Root Powder into small bath tea bag. Using an iron, seal the open side of the bath tea bag and place into melted oils.
  3. When the oils and butters are melted, remove from the heat source. Allow the alkanet root to steep in the oils for a minimum of 2 hours. (The longer it sits the deeper the color will be.)
  4. When you are done infusing the oils remove and dispose of the tea bag.
  5. Place the pot back on the heat source and add the candellila wax. Continue stirring until wax is fully melted and then remove from heat source.
  6. Add vitamin E and stir well.
  7. When the mixture has cooled to approximately 160°F,  pour into the plastic beaker.
  8. Using the plastic beaker begin filling the tubes. If the product begins to harden you can place the plastic beaker in the microwave to remelt. 
  9. When product has cooled completely, place caps on tubes. Label product accordingly.
