The safety and reliability of natural products have triggered the need to produce herbal-based products. The use of herbal cosmetics has become increasingly popular among present-day women. Synthetic coloring agents being used in cosmetics have been found to produce carcinogenic effects. The objective of the present study involved the preparation and evaluation of herbal lipsticks using color matter from natural sources such as carrot, beetroot, turmeric, tomatoes, pomegranate, and cocoa. Different natural ingredients such as beeswax, carnauba wax, vanilla essence, castor oil, white soft paraffin, strawberry essence, vitamin E, lemon juice was used to formulate herbal lipstick. Prepared herbal lipstick was evaluated for different evaluation tests such as color, texture, pH, melting point, breaking point, surface anomalies, aging, and perfume stability.
