Why Jojoba Beads?
We at Essentials By Catalina are constantly innovating and rethinking ways of doing things. Regular sugar based lip scrubs are fine but can be harsh if used often. I have found myself with puffy sore lips after priming my lips for lipstick all day and night long. Many beauty routines call for using a lip scrub before applying lipstick or stain for a smoother finish.
So as you can see, even sugar can be harsh on your lips, leaving microscopic tears on the skin.
However jojoba beads are sphere shaped and smooth, ideal for sensitive skin like thin layer on the lips. It can be great for those who want a gentle, daily lip exfoliant.
This recipe will vary depending on the flavoring you will be using. The preferred flavor will be oil based, however you can use water soluble flavor. If you are planning to use a water based flavor then you may need Poly 80.
Here is the recipe we used, feel free to use whichever butters or oils you would like. Use our batch calculator to customize this recipe to tailor your needs.
