How to make lipstick at home?
Making homemade lipstick is easy. Product quality largely depends on the choice of solid oil, which is the base substance of lipstick. The most popular in cosmetology are cocoa, shea, mango and coconut oils. Each of the substances has a number of useful properties.
Cocoa butter is saturated with oleic fatty acids, thanks to which it retains moisture, perfectly regenerates the skin epidermis and smoothes skin defects. In addition, an additional bonus is the pleasant smell of chocolate.
The substance has a pronounced nutty aroma and perfectly smoothes the skin, slowing down the aging process. Shea butter is best used for dry, sensitive skin.
Mango oil moisturizes the skin, providing good absorption of nutrients. It has a subtle smell of ripe mango.
