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 

Therefore, no need to worry when you see what we are up to here – DIY lipstick!  Of course, your pallete is whatever you want it to be as you choose and mix colors to your liking – a sort of lipstick mixologist if you will!
