Breakthrough: Natural Sweet Oil
two years we have been searching for an all natural oil based
sweetener for use in lip balm manufacturing. Until now, saccharin
was about the only option on the market when it came to a
necessary oil based component. We discovered a certain type of
fractionated coconut oil, from a specific region, is naturally
sweet and we are thrilled to carry this product. Fractionated
coconut oil in general does not have a distinctive coconut flavor,
so it does not interfere with flexibility in flavoring. This oil
is sweet, but not so sweet it would cause licking of the lips,
which has been a viable argument for those who prefer no sweetener
Because we love this new all natural oil so much, we have happily
and totally eliminated saccharin based oil sweetener from our
product line. This oil is not to be confused with the standard
fractionated coconut oil we sell on the carrier oil chart.
This is a VERY sweet oil. We
recommend only 5 drops of Mabel's Sweet Oil to four ounces of the oil portion of any lip
balm or jelly recipe for maximum experience. This means only
a few drops will go a very long way. You will want
to experiment with desired amounts as personal taste varies.
Too much oil and it will be way too sweet. For
those who manufacture lip materials, fractionated coconut oil is
what you would list.
of our largest customers actually assisted in this breakthrough
and she makes a wonderful "Rose" lip balm that also includes
powdered rose petals. We just love her products and cannot get
enough of them.
