How I would improve?

When I made the first lip balm, it had so many smell, but it is very comfortable. However, after 1 or 2 month, lip balm is more comfortable.

I will change my recipe that reduce the essential oil and shea butter.

Lip Balm

Ingredient Purpose
Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil The organic sunflower oil in Juteux is a natural and very healthy way to produce moisturizing emollients for lips. … While helping to smooth and prevent wrinkles on lips. At the same time antioxidant properties of organic sunflower oil can help in preventing premature signs of aging.
 Cera alba (beeswax, cire d’abeille) Beeswax is perhaps the most essential ingredient in our lip balms. This is because it contains natural moisturizers that lock in moisture from the air and help keep the skin looking firm and plump.
Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil The primary benefit of coconut oil is its moisturizing effects. This makes it ideal for chapped lips. Your lips are particularly sensitive to moisture loss because the skin is thin, and they’re exposed to the elements more so than other parts of your skin.
Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil Castor oil is commonly used as an ingredient in skin care products, including lip balms and lipsticks. It’s rich in the monounsaturated fatty acid ricinoleic acid, a known humectant. Because of these qualities, castor oil can be applied to lips and skin, either on its own or as an ingredient, to promote hydration.
lanolin Lanolin is a waxy substance that is secreted by the oil glands of sheep, like this fella below. It is used in lip balms such as the cult favorite Lanolins because of its highly emollient properties and ability to prevent water loss. For those who aren’t sensitive, lanolin can be great.
Aroma (flavor)* The majority of fragrances in Burt’s Bees products are natural, composed of proprietary blends of essential oils and natural extracts. Some of our heritage and other products contain partially synthetic fragrances.
 Punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil Pomegranate seed oil may be especially helpful for those who suffer from acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
tocopherol Its powerful antioxidant abilities make it a favorite ingredient for soothing inflammation and redness, whether as part of a soothing lip balm or a hydrating hand cream.
officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract The tingly sensation of the classic, peppermint-infused Beeswax Lip Balm was unlike anything I had tried before, and immediately I was hooked. Speaking of peppermint, the original flavor basically acts as a breath mint (not the edible kind, of course).
Glycine soja (soybean) oil While Huda Beauty utilizes soybean oil in their lip gloss, soybean oil can be found in a variety of other products, such as skin cleansers, eye makeup and suntan products.
Canola oil (huile de colza) Although natural brand, Burt’s Bees, is currently home to the world’s biggest selling lip balm, it’s propped up by brands such as Carmex, Blistex and Chapstick, all of which rely on ingredients such as petroleum jelly. … Made from 100 per cent pure petroleum jelly, one pot is sold every 39 seconds worldwide.
 carmine We use carmine in some Burt’s Bees lip products because it is a natural alternative to synthetic colorants, which can be derived from non-renewable fossil fuels. Carmine is a natural extract that has been used since Ancient Egyptian times for its red pigment.
Benzyl salicylate Benzyl salicylate is often used as a fragrance enhancer or fragrance fixative and as such has no direct beneficial impact on the skin. However, when applied topically, benzyl salicylate can cause negative reactions, even in small amounts can cause an allergic skin reaction2
cinnamal This is the first Burt’s Bees lip balm I’ve ever owned, and it’s pretty satisfactory. It’s hydrating, nourishing, and gives your lips a smooth, pink tint.
citral Nourishes lips and delights the senses with a burst of sweet, tropical flavor.
eugenol Classic ChapStick has camphor, while ChapStick Medicated and Carmex have both camphor and menthol. Burt’s Bees has neither, but it does have lanolin, which can cause negative reactions in some people.
geraniol The pleasant flavor of geraniol makes it a useful ingredient for lip care products, such as lip gloss and lip balm. Geraniol can also function as an effective plant-based insect repellent. Studies have proven geraniol to be effective in repelling mosquitoes.
hydroxy citronella Hydroxy citronellal is a synthetic fragrance that is widely used in many cosmetics and hygiene products such as deodorants, soaps, antiseptics, and other household items. It has the smell of lilac, lily, and lily of the valley.
Limonene linalool

*natural flavor

Linalool is used as a scent in 60% to 80% of perfumed hygiene products and cleaning agents including soaps, detergents, shampoos, and lotions. It exhibits anti-fungal properties. It is also used as a chemical intermediate. One common downstream product of linalool is vitamin E.

Percy Jackson Informational Blog

There is many choose chance of Percy Jackson. But Percy Jackson have many trouble. I should talk about to trouble of Percy Jackson.


In pg.1 “My name is Percy Jackson.

I’m twelve years old. Until a few months ago, I was a boarding student at Yancy Academy, a private school for troubled kids in upstate New York.” I think this is bad education of Percy Jackson.


“See, bad things happen to me on field trips. Like at my fifth-grade school, when we went to the Saratoga battlefield, I had this accident with a Revolutionary War cannon. I wasn’t aiming for the school bus, but of course I got expelled anyway.” This is bad situation of school trips because if in revolutionary War cannon has bomb, he should kill many people then other people surprise and I think they could see Percy was monster, the rebel army or he crazy, and want to do war.


In pg.17 “I started feeling cranky and irritable most of the time. My grades slipped from Ds to Fs. I got into more fights with Nancy Bobofit and her friends. I was sent out into the hallway in almost every class.

Finally, when our English teacher, Mr. Nicoll, asked me for the millionth time why I was too lazy to study for spelling tests, I snapped. I called him an old sot. I wasn’t even sure what it meant, but it sounded good.” This is second time of bad education than before six grades of Percy Jackson. I think if Percy Jackson fight someone, he can’t concentration of test.


I think everything are wrong of education of Percy Jackson because I think he have some curiosity of many weapon that is danger of many people. I think if Percy Jackson want to go to school, before, he has to study of concept, manners or power of Percy Jackson.


“My grades slipped from Ds to Percy Jackson Fs.” In here, I think he need some study tips because he can’t follow study then he need plan, time, discover your study style, review and ask for help because if he can’t do good to study after and after, too. In ask for help, it is something if he doesn’t know or he have curiosity, he asks to teacher, friends or parents. If he can’t hold back of curiosity something, then he should practice of patience.



Percy Jackson and the lightning thief

In Percy Jackson and the lightning thief Percy Jackson is fearful.

On pg.53   Percy Jackson said,” “I can’t go any farther.” and pg.59 “My mother was gone.”

Based on these actions one can infer that on pg.53 “I can’t go any farther.” In here, Percy Jackson was so fearful because Percy Jackson was don’t know where it and no one can help in that situation then he got fear of losing his mom and how to kill Minotaur, but he was using his power then “My legs tensed. I couldn’t jump sideways, so I leaped straight up, kicking off from the creature’s head, using it as a springboard, turning in midair and landing on his neck. How did I do that? I didn’t have time to figure it out,” Percy said. I think He was so surprised that he resolved his fears and used his powers to kill Minotaur.


Based on these actions one can infer that on pg.59 “My mother was gone.” This is fearful to Percy Jackson because “The whole world should be black and cold. Nothing should look beautiful.” he lost mom then I think he knew if he lost his mom, he would feel everything has gone.
