What are the major components of lipstick?

The raw materials of lipstick include colorants, fillers, waxes, oils, pearlescent agents, flavors and preservatives.

1. Substrate: The main components of the substrate are mainly oil, wax and softener. The base allows the lipstick to set and last.

2. Waxes: Carnauba wax and beeswax are the most commonly used, in addition to carnauba wax and spermaceti. In lipstick, other components are uniformly dispersed in the wax, and the wax and other oil components form a uniform carrier, which acts as a forming agent. The properties of wax (such as melting point range, crystalline state, etc.) have a great influence on the texture, performance, skin feel and stability of the lipstick.

3. Oil esters: including mineral oil, petrolatum and other hydrocarbons, castor oil, lanolin, jojoba oil and other natural source oils.

4. Softener: Softener can increase the ability of color to adhere to the lips, and can also moisturize the mouth. Lip gloss contains more oil and less wax.

5. Colorants: Colorants contain pigments or dyes, which determine the hue of the lipstick. Generally, it can be divided into three categories: organic colorants, mineral pigments and pearlescent pigments. Among them, mineral colorants are the most used colorants.

6. Spices and seasonings: essences can mask the taste of the above-mentioned ingredients.

Some lipsticks with glittering effects also contain pearlescent pigments such as mica and titanium mica.

What should be paid attention to when using lipstick?

Keep the lipstick at room temperature and avoid high temperature in the storage place. The lipstick can be stored for three years before it is opened, and the shelf life is shortened to one to two years due to contact with oxygen after it is opened.
