What Do You Get When You Mix Crayons With Coconut Oil?
Have you ever wondered how cosmetics are made? Leave it to a teenager to make it simple and easy to develop. Apparently, crayons are made up of non-pigments and waxes. Seriously, how many times have you seen a child stick a crayon up their nose or in their mouth? Typically, a parent will panic, but one need not get too excited about it unless the swallowed crayon causes a child to choke. Crayons are completely safe, and a child will not die if a crayon is ingested.
In general, wax is not poisonous. If a child eats a small amount of crayon, the wax will pass through the child’s system without causing a problem. Source
