Natural Naked Moisture Riche Lip Gloss Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen


2 measured Tablespoons beeswax
1/2 ounce (by weight) cocoa butter
1/2 ounce (by weight) shea butter
1/2 ounce (by weight) hemp seed butter (or additional 1/2 oz. shea butter and 1 teaspoon hemp seed oil)
1 measured Tablespoon avocado oil
1 measured Tablespoon wheat germ oil
1 ml vitamin E oil
1 ml jojoba oil


Large Glass Pyrex Measuring Cup
Microwave (or double boiler)
Digital scale
10 – 1/4 oz. plastic jars with lids
glass dropper or 3ml Graduated Plastic Transfer Pipettes


You will need a digital scale to weigh out the butters.

In a double boiler or microwave, start by melting your solid ingredients first starting with the beeswax. Measure out the beeswax using a Tablespoon measurement and add to the glass measuring cup. Melt on reduced power in the microwave.

Weigh out the cocoa butter and once the beeswax is mostly melted through, add the cocoa butter and continue heating until melted completely.

Next, weigh out the hemp and shea butters, then stir in your butters and mix well. Heat for an additional 30 seconds if needed, then measure out the avocado and wheat germ oils and stir in with the butters and beeswax

Finally, use a pipette to measure out the jojoba and vitamin E oils and stir into the lip gloss mixture. Slowly pour the liquid lip gloss into lip gloss pots and allow to cool completely. Then tightly screw on the cap and store in a cool, dry location.


To use, simply apply to lips. Also great for those troubled spots on skin such as cracked hands or patches of eczema.

Why Avocado Oil?

Avocado oil contains high amounts of Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E as well as amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids. It is often used to treat skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and other skin ailments and is highly recommended to those with sensitive skin, problem skin and other irritations that require vitamin rich oil.

Why Wheat Germ Oil?

Wheat Germ oil is a natural source of Vitamin E, A, D, proteins, Lecithin, and Squalene and is often applied externally for numerous irritations including roughness of the skin, cracking, chaffing and to help reverse the effects of wrinkling.

Why Jojoba Oil?

Jojoba oil is readily absorbed by skin as it’s properties are similar to our skin’s own sebum.

Why Vitamin E?

Vitamin E helps to prevent rancidity in cosmetics and it acts as an anti-oxidant in creams, lotions, and cosmetics.

Why Hemp Seed Oil?

Hemp seed oil offers its healing and regenerative properties. It is a source of complete protein and contains all twenty know amino acids as well as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, and E.

Why Shea Butter?

Shea butter forms a breathable, water-resistant film and is highly prized for its moisturizing properties.

Why Cocoa Butter?

Cocoa butter adds a rich, creamy, and thick consistency to lotions, soaps, creams, and toiletry items and helps to reduce dryness and improve skin elasticity.

    Thnks for the great recipe. I was wondering what a vegan alternative to beeswax could be?

      Sub half the amount of beeswax for carnauba wax.

    Hey Rebecca! I made this naked and also with a combination of oil infused with annatto seed and alkanet root. Both glosses ended up having white spots all over them which I am assuming is the beeswax. Why is this happening?

      Temperature fluctuations. It happens to my products with beeswax when they get too warm and then re-solidify pretty much only in the summer.
