Lip balms are universally and perennially popular, whether to keep lips smooth in winter, or to protect against sun damage in summer. Solving for feature or texture challenges with natural or synthetic ingredients can be challenging, but Koster Keunen has the formula expertise to support all of your lip protection aspirations.
With lip balm, the first decision is the one that drives all those that come after. What form should your balm take: stick, pot, or squeezable? Which feature means the most to you and your customers? Are you aiming for sustainable, natural, vegan, or is cost-effectiveness the principal concern?
With answers to those questions in hand, it is much easier to consider formulation options that meet your requirements, while leaving the door open for the addition of color and sun protection in many systems.
