How much glycerin in lip gloss


Recommended Posts

This could work as a lava-type gloss, as it won't be uniformly mixed. Glycerin is water-soluble, so it won't stay mixed with your oils. I've used glycerin in lip gloss at a very small percentage, and threw in a bit of lanolin to help it stay emulsified. Though technically with that method it is only suspended, and runs a big chance of the glycerin separating out eventually. You might want to consider using food-grade stearic acid or a polymer to help hold it together, if a uniform product is your goal. Don't be bummed about that gallon - glycerin lasts a long time, and you can use it in lotion, hair products, lube, etc.
