    Hello it is me again,

    I now have a question on adding color to my lip balm. When I melt the oils and add the oil soluble lip balm color the color does not mix in very well. It beads on the bottom and conglomerates in the middle.

    Does anyone know what I could be doing wrong? Am I adding too much color? I add just a dot and mix it with a wisk but it still turns out weird.

    Thank you again,
    Catherine Carter

    Catherine,

    What oils are you using? Are you using a flavor oil, if so, what flavor? What color are you using?

    If you can help me answer these questions, I can determine what is the problematic factor here.

    Hi Andee,

    I have been using the Shea Butter and Mango Butter Lip Solutions on the MMS web site. The flavor was peach and the color was the oil soluble orange color. Hopefully that helps.

    Also, if I add the color into the lip balm and then sell it am I breaking any FDA cosmetic laws?

    Thanks,
    Catherine

    Catherine,

    Double check and make sure that the flavor you are using is Peach FLAVOR, and not a fragrance oil. Is it a flavor oil meant for lip balms? Is it our Peach Flavor or from another vendor? Are there any other additives in the lip balm?

    I have seen the beading action of the color that you have described when there is a compatibility issue between ingredients in a lip balm. The color just makes these compatibility issues visible. The incompatibility issues are still there even if you can't see them.

    As to your question about the FDA, as long as the color is lip balm safe, it can be added to a lip balm and then sold. You are not breaking any FDA cosmetic laws as long as you use a lip balm safe colorant.
