  • Soya wax

    Can the soya wax used for making candles also be used for making things like lip and hand balms or is it totally different?

      For salves/lip balms, generally soy wax isn't the best wax to use - not a great skin feel compared to other cosmetic waxes.

      Beeswax or a vegan wax like candelilla could be used instead. Here's a recipe for lip balm - http://makingskincare.com/how-to-mak...nd-lotion-bar/

      If you would like to turn the above recipe into a salve, you can use half the amount of wax and add that amount onto the liquid oils.

        Thanks very much for your reply. I think I'll probably have a go with beeswax or candellila wax.
