Hello! curious to know what would be good to add to create a sunscreen lip balm. – Missy
There are a lot of different ingredients that you can incorporate into a lip balm to give it some protection against the sun. Certain Carrier Oils, like Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Oat Oil, and Yangu Oil, can aid in sun protection. Additives like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide can also be added to increase the protection.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to determine the real SPF for your lip balm without the help of a professional lab, and you can’t market SPF products without a special license to do so, but adding ingredients like these should certainly contribute to a safer formula for use in the sun.
