Mat Husin, Norazlin (2015) Development of engkabang fats lipstick with protective properties. Masters thesis, Universiti Putra Malaysia.


Development of halal lipstick cosmetics is gaining consumer attention with the growing of halal product industry worldwide. Protection properties such as moisturizing, antioxidant, sunscreen and microbial protection are required to prevent and improve lips condition whereas the used colour from the lipstick products beautify the lips. The purpose of this research is to prepare optimum lipstick formulation with protection properties containing engkabang fats and various ingredients from halal sources. The effect of engkabang fats as new solid ingredient and moisturizing component in lipstick formulation was studied. Preparation of engkabang fats lipstick formulation was carried out by mixing the melted waxes, oils, colorants and protection properties homogeneously, before being moulded into lipstick mould and cooled at - 18°C to -20°C. The physico-chemical characterization of lipstick such as texture analysis, melting point, pH, colour intensity, stability studies, antioxidant scavenging assay, UV screening and moisture content of the formulation were determined. The safety evaluation of lipsticks was carried out by antimicrobial diffusion and skin irritancy assay. Lipstick formulations containing engkabang fats gave better results on texture analysis, melting point and moisture content value as compared to lipstick formulations without engkabang fats. Engkabang fats lipstick with additives formulations containing protection properties showed efficacy value similar to commercial lipsticks in the market which was used as reference samples.
