Plant based make-up

Lise

It feels like I just barely got started developing plant-based make-up, but looking back over my notes reveals this has been ongoing for almost 5 years.

Plant colorants are quite demanding to work with and can be incredibly tricky, but offer benefits I’d love to incorporate.

So, while the work of cracking the code of plant-color-stability continues, I thought I’d share this recent batch of foundation and blush sticks with you.

Progress?

Yes indeed.

More work ahead?

Yes indeed.

More to come…

All Natural Bourbon Vanilla Flavor

Lise

Here is a peek at a lip balm I keep getting requests for: all-natural bourbon vanilla. This is a relatively simple lip balm formula with handcrafted vanilla-infused oil. The flavor and scent are all natural and luxuriously delicious and probably what makes my clients, friends and family keep asking for more.

If you want to try making your own vanilla-infused oil, there is a free how-to on the main blog right here.

The Art of Stacking Soap

Lise

Handcrafted soap is something to treasure - a labor of love by artisans who cares about the materials, method and outcome of every bar they make.

I am lucky to know several makers of cold process soap. Every time I have been gifted with a bar, I cannot bear throwing the last bit away and will ‘glue’ it to a new bar. This has developed into what I have dubbed artful soap stacking. One doesn’t just attach a random new bar, one carefully selects the next bar, considering color and textures. The result: an aesthetically pleasing ‘soap stack’.

Sun Powered Oil Infusion

Lise

This is a peek at the windowsill in my lab where a few oil infusions are underway. Even though there are several oil infusion methods that will all produce successful results, I tend to return to this, my favorite method: sun infusion.

Hardcore sun infusion fans believe the gentle power of a slow infusion utilizing sunlight creates the most potent and vibrant end product. And although I am not sure science has looked into this (or even has anything to say about it), I tend to agree.

I find it inherently satisfying to ‘greet’ my infusions every morning during the daily agitation and monitor how the mixture is coming along.

When an infusion is ready for straining, it usually lets you know.

From Balm to Ointment

Lise

This soothing balm is so soft and unctuous, some might call it an ointment. Depending on how the ingredients are proportioned, this products can be made super soft (as shown here) or solid enough to be poured into tubes.

I developed this formula for the course: Essential Formulation, oil-based products and aqueous sprays that is open for enrollment at Tisserand Institute until June 30th.
