Pink Sugar FO in Lip Balm????

  1. I have a customer who would like a Pink Sugar Lip Balm. Would that be safe? If so would I have to sweeten with like Stevia???

    I know others who use FO's for lip balms, your lips are so close to your nose obviously :) that smell and taste are combined. But FO's are synthetic chemicals and they can't be healthy being licked. I would not do this even with an OK, it just doesn't sound good for you. There are so many cotton candy lip balm flavorings I would go with it, bet she doesn't even know it isn't an exact dupe. Vicki

    FO's are not considered safe for using in Lip balms, I also would not do this.. You can get cotton candy flavored lip balm flavoring..
    YOu sometimes have to wonder tho, since we put it on our skin and it absorbs..
    I have read that our mucus membranes absorb easier and faster.. read that somewhere.. don't know where..
