The composition of lipsticks ... let's talk about it!

Gebhard Sophie

3 ... 2 ... 1! Today we are officially launching the recipe for our lipsticks !

After several tests and confirmation from our expert toxicologist, the recipe is ready.

If until now we only offered care and hygiene products for the face, body and hair , we now want to expand the possibilities and offer you to manufacture your make-up . And the Beauty Mix team starts off strong with a range of lipsticks!

Today we give you our new recipe and the advantages of making your own makeup!

What are the lipsticks that we buy made of?

We are all fans, lipstick has its place in a successful makeup routine. To complete an eye make-up or to sublimate your lips, whether nude or bright red, this is THE final touch.

And did you know? 900 million sticks are sold worldwide every year! And you can ingest almost 2kg of lipstick in a lifetime. It is therefore worth checking their composition ...

Do you know exactly what is in your tube?

Usually, a classic lipstick is made up of:

  • Waxes to give consistency. They can be of animal origin (beeswax), vegetable (candellila wax) but are more synthetic or mineral.

  • Vegetable and mineral oils derived from petroleum. But also silicones, liquid fatty alcohols and ether which give shine and which also have a lubricating and slippery power.

  • Vegetable butters, providing the smoothness that lipstick needs

  • Pigments, such as titanium dioxide which is a white pigment used as a food additive but which will be eliminated due to its potential carcinogenic effect, but which is still very present in cosmetics

  • Flavors that are used in food such as vanilla and cocoa

  • From antioxidants to protect the formula like vitamin C also called tocopherol which is natural, from synthetics like the phenolics BHA and BHT ...

The composition is therefore not always clean, and we decided to bring you a better alternative!

Make your own makeup?

Thanks to BeautyMix, you can now make up to seven shades of lipstick, with just 2 pigments! From cherry red to pale pink, through orange, create your lipsticks according to your tastes and outfit of the day! And you can even invent your own shade ...
