We really want to know some stuff about lip gloss. We have it for a topic in our science fair, and we'd really like to win. So if anybody has any information on lip gloss, please post it. And you can send any kind of information that you think will help, we just really need something to help us out.

Contact a couple of the companies, either by phone (most companies will offer an 800 number) or by email. If you have time, a written letter will work as well and when they respond you'll have the response in writing so to speak! (02/26/2005)
Check into the ingredients in several big name lip glosses. For example; Carmex, which a lot of people use, contains salicylic acid which is actually a drying agent, so it really dries out your lips which just makes you use more. You can do a poll to find out what the favorite lip gloss is (collect data). What exactly are you trying to find out about lip gloss? What is the point you are trying to make with your presentation? Keep those things in mind, and you will do great. (02/27/2005)
Until very recently, I'm talking a couple years tops and some still do this, major cosmetic companies purchased whale blubber from the fisherman who hunted them. What for? They would strain the fat and use it as the moisturizing and solidifying ingredient in lip products. So you and I were rubbing a dead animal's fat on our mouths. SICK! Put that in your project. And make sure you only buy products that are animal product and testing free. (02/27/2005)

Have you ever actually looked up the ingredients? Lip gloss is mostly made of different waxes and flavoring. Although the lip gloss from Elf cosmetics main ingredient can be lethal in large doses. Pretty interesting. (02/11/2008)
Whale products are not used in cosmetics anymore. Most everything is created in a lab. (03/24/2008)
I made my lip gloss out of honey, shortening, and food coloring. (06/28/2008)
