The use of lipstick has a profound cultural impact, and its safety and dietary guidelines are of utmost importance to ensure public health. Conventional lipsticks often contain toxic metals through colorants, posing risks such as allergies, dermatitis, lip darkening, and dryness, and even potential carcinogenic effects. To address these concerns, our study aimed to formulate and evaluate a herbal lipstick using edible colorants, specifically nanoparticles derived from black mulberry and pale catechu. The glamourholic combination of lip balm and lipstick was formulated with natural ingredients including beeswax, butter, olive oil, castor oil, and vanilla essence. Various parameters such as color, texture, pH, melting point, breaking point, softening point, surface anomalies, perfume aging, and stability were assessed and compared to commercially available standard formulations. The results demonstrated that the formulated herbal lipstick met industry standards and exhibited favorable properties. Encouragingly, the use of natural edible colorants emerged as the most viable option for developing herbal lipsticks. This innovative approach holds promise for enhancing safety, minimizing toxicity risks, and providing consumers with a healthier alternative. The findings from this study contribute to the development of herbal lipsticks that prioritize public health while maintaining the aesthetic and social benefits associated with lipstick usage.
