The Lip Savors™ flavor collection is here! Lip Savors™ are cosmetic flavor oils designed for use in lip balms, lip glosses, lipsticks, and edible massage oils. These flavor oils are oil soluble, unsweetened, do not use any nut derived oils, are vegan friendly and cruelty free, and are free of gluten and parabens.
The term "flavor oil" is a bit of a misnomer. Flavor oils are really lip-safe fragrances. They smell but do not taste. Flavor oils are used to scent your lips. Commercial products that seem to have a taste actually use a sweetener (commonly aspartame or other sugar substitute). The sweetener tricks your brain into thinking you are tasting the flavor when you are actually smelling it. If you add a sweetener to lip balms, be aware that this will make the user have a tendency to lick their lips, which is drying.
Recommended usage rate is up to 3%. (Multiply your product weight by .03 and the resulting number is the weight of the flavor oil you should add.) When testing the flavor of a product, start with the smallest amount of flavor possible - it is always easy to add more, but impossible to take it away. Flavor oils can be blended to create interesting and fun combinations.
Note: Flavor oil formulations are not required to be listed by individual ingredients. Ingredients that make up a formulation are Federally protected as proprietary formulations by regulating bodies and are considered a protected trade secret by the manufacturer. The word "fragrance" or "flavor" is all that is required to be listed. No other obligations are required by any regulating bodies.
*INCI for ALL flavor oils: flavor
