Vaseline 200 dl
Paraffin 200 dl
Ozokerite 25 dl

The material is first melted together and the perfume is added during cooling. The pomade is used to prevent the lips from popping. If the price allows it, it is recommended to replace part of the petroleum products with lanolin, olive oil and cocoa butter. By grinding a few percent fine zinc oxide with the mixture, the material becomes whiter and the pomade has a healing effect on inflamed lips.

The oil is first melted with the waxes. The insoluble dye is finely ground with the oil, the soluble dye is simply dissolved upon melting.
The properties of such lipsticks can be changed by changing the ratio of oil and wax. In addition, the insoluble pigments work differently than the oil-soluble dyes. In addition, a coloring agent is sometimes added, which is water-soluble, such as tartrasine and ponceau.

Lipstick (kissproof)

Recipe (early 1920's)
Yellow vaseline 91 dl
White ceresin 17 dl
Paraffin 6 dl
Ozokerite 6 dl
Carnauba wax 42 dl
Sweet almond oil 20 dl
Paraffin oil 33 dl
Color powder approx.40 dl
Color Fixator P&S 48 dl
The carnauba wax is melted. The other waxes and fats are first melted together, after which the carnauba wax is added to the other fats. Half of the mass is now mixed with the color powder and ground very finely on a roller machine until no more dots can be found with the magnifying glass. Then the second half of the fats are added and the entire mass is heated on a water bath.

Meanwhile, the fixer for lipsticks has also been melted on a water bath and the melted fixer is now added to the entire mass. The mass is allowed to cool with steady stirring to prevent color from settling on the bottom. The still semi-liquid mass is perfumed and poured into cold moulds. The lipstick is absolutely "kissproof"
