Our new and improved Lip Balm Base features Castor wax jelly to deliver intense moisture to dry lips. Made with beeswax in combination with vitamin and nutrient rich oils, it adds a soft shine to lips. As a lanolin-alternative, Castor wax jelly enriches the emolliating properties of this robust formula. Botanical extracts and various natural raw materials can be added to customize each product.
Usage: Please refer to recipes for the exact percentage of botanical extracts and natural ingredients that need to be added to the base. Exceeding the amount may destabilize the bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel, or the rate of absorption.

Rating: Love how creamy and moisturizing the lip balm base is. It doesn't wash off easily and has strong staying power. To get a firmer lip balm, I usually melt the base with a small bit of beeswax or candelilla wax to get it a little firmer for the lip balm tube. It's a trial and error with the wax as you don't want the lip balm too hard. The base also mixes well with mica colors, doesn't drag or bleed, and works amazing straight out of the jar as a cuticle cream. Definitely worth restocking. Thanks, NDA!

Rating: Great product but it would be very helpful if NDA gave instructions on how to firm it up for tubes and give the amounts of flavoring to add. I had to do quite a lot of experimenting and wanted a product. The other reviews were helpful as they gave me some guidelines for adding beeswax. I tried a 50/50 ratio of raw cocoa butter and added 3-4 gms beeswax to 50 gms of this mixture.
Rating: I am giving this product a 10 STARS * * * * * * * * * *.
This lip balm base is creamy and applies on lips easily and stays on hours after application. It gives your lips a nice soft feeling and not greasy at all! I blend with 100% Organic Essential Oils or your Lip Balm Flavors for a finished product that I believe is better than those on the market. Also makes a great cuticle salve and solid perfume. PLEASE keep this product on your shelves.
Rating: I used to create my lip balms from scratch, but then I decided to try this base. I will never make a lip balm from scratch again! This is a time saver and it is sooooo nice and smooth! Makes your lips extremely soft! I also just started ordering my supplies from here, so far, I am impressed to the hilts with everything I have purchased! Excellent company and excellent products!
Rating: This wonderful formula is so smooth and lasts a long time on your lips. It is very easy to create custom colours with micas and oxides. As mentioned by another reviewer, a little beeswax will firm it up, but it works well in tubes as is, especially after addition of micas and oxides. You can get rid of all the drying lipsticks full of all kinds of nasties. This balm will do it all!

Rating: My clients love this lip balm! I also offer it as a free sample to new clients and they keep coming back for more!
Rating: I've used this balm for some times and I have only praises. I mix it with cocoa butter and mint EO to make an "after eight" balm, and I add zinc powder to make it safe for the sun. This balm is so easy to work with, you can make it with your kids!

Rating: I used it in equal parts with Shea Butter (also from NDA...where else?!) + EOs - what a lovely combo! It worked well to store in a small lip balm pot/tin.
Wish I'd tried it sooner what with all those years of using petroleum jelly.......never again!
By:Radhika, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 29-Aug-2006
Rating: O...M...G! This lip balm is da BOMB! lol! Is a little soft for tubes but just add 2g of white beeswax pellets/50g base and it's perfect! The beeswax doesn't make much of a difference to the already-perfect formula- it just stiffens it up a bit. Thanx, NDA!....again.

Rating: I just made some lip balms with some EO in little tins... excellent.
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Aug-2010
Rating: Definitely too soft a base for lip balm tubes... probably great for pots and tins! Holds eo scents well!
Rating: We got our product but we dont really have any idea of what to do with it.. Do we melt it? and what oils would we add to it?? EO? FO? We love all the others products we have got through ND and cant wait to get our lip balms made!! If anyone could help that would be great!!
Rating: First experience ever with lip balm was with this product. Five starts for ease of use, quality of base. Impressed!

Rating: There is a lot of ease to the use of this product, better than any base I have tried before. I use is as a natural product or zip it up with flavours and scents, my customers love the chocolate covered strawberry I developed! Kids love the cotton candy and bubblegum ones. Good going ND, love your products.
Rating: Fantastic, great base wonderful feel and doesn't wear off in a hurry! Great with colour and flavour.
