How to Make Herbal Lipstick?

Aim: To prepare, evaluate and submit herbal lipstick. 

Requirements:  Ice, Lipstick molds, Beaker, Water bath, Scraper, and Lipstick container. 

Chemicals:  Niger oil, Kokum Butter, Beeswax, Ripe fruit powder of shikakai, Turmeric powder,  Strawberry Essence, Lemon juice, and Vanilla essence. 

Formulation Consideration:  Colouring lips is an ancient practice that dates back to the prehistoric period. In present days the use of products has increased and the choice of shades of colors, textures, and lustrous,  have been changed and become wider. This can be observed from the fact that lipstick is marketed in hundreds of shades of color to satisfy the demand for women. Due to various adverse effects of available synthetic preparation, the present work was conceived by us to formulate an herbal lipstick having minimal or no side effects which will extensively use by the women of our communities with great surety and satisfaction. 

Storage: Keep in a cool and dry place.
