The Study on the Development and Processing Transfer of Lip Balm Products from Virgin Coconut Oil: A Case Study


The purpose of this research was aimed to study the development and processing transfer of lip balm products from virgin coconut oil by herbal producing group of the Sibedsok sub-district, Banpho district, Chachoengsao province, Thailand. Their physical properties and stability test at various storage conditions were performed. The results showed that all of the formulations (8 formulas) were stable under tested conditions. The formula that contained only virgin coconut oil was selected by 6 volunteers of 20 volunteers, which were considered from the physical properties: texture, color and smelling. The selected formula was then evaluated from satisfaction of 30 volunteers, and compared with lip balm containing mineral oil. It was found that most of volunteers were more satisfied in the physical property of lip balm containing virgin coconut oil. Results of the sensation test showed that the lip balm containing virgin coconut oil was also found to be softer, more moisturizing and smoothing to the lip. Moreover, it was easier to apply and spread on lip with positively long-lasting effect. All volunteers felt that their lip were soft and moisturized without any allergy or irritation after they applied continuously.
