How Did I Come Up with My Formula?

Experimentation is how my lip balm formula came to be. 

The first time I ever made lip balm, it was with a recipe that I found online and I had fun making different ones with different ingredients to see which ones I liked the best. I also did a lot of research to learn what the ingredients do to a cosmetic formulation and I experimented some more based on what I found. Anytime I ran into something I wanted to tweak, I'd spend a lot of time researching and testing different ingredients and methods for making my product.
