Learn how to make your own natural, vegan friendly lip balm with Victoria from Happy Carrot Skincare! I’ll quickly introduce myself and then we'll get straight into taking an in-depth look at some of the ingredients commonly used in vegan friendly lip balms. Including what they feel like on the skin, where they come from and the combination of the three main types of ingredients: butters, waxes and oils. My favourite ingredients are upcycled so we’ll see plenty of examples of these more sustainable options too! I’ll give you a few pointers of where to source these ingredients too so you’ll be able to carry out the recipe provided. We'll then discuss the equipment you’ll need, most of which you’ll already have in your kitchen and we’ll look at safety too so you’ll understand more about keeping your formulations safe to use. Once you're ready, we'll check out the formula you’ll be making and I'll talk you through the method and everything you'll need to be able to safely make your own lip balms again and again at home! There’s a little bit of troubleshooting too so you can practice the skin. After all, practice makes perfect! Making your own skincare is so much fun and I hope you really enjoy making this beautiful lip balm!
