The lip balms can be created by a class as a group, but preferably this lesson is done with the class divided into 5-6 groups, each with a different target market assigned. When using this classroom size kit, just separate out your packages of pre-weighed ingredients into six groups so each group has the ingredients to make one Basic Batch.

The Classroom Kit has the most potential for profit, and can provide over $500 profit per kit when all 300 lip balms are sold. The Classroom Kit will also save you time by providing 6 lip balm filling trays for 6 teams to make 300 lip balms simultaneously, rather than waiting for each batch of 50 to cool. Perfect for school fundraisers! Your cost per lip balm will be $1.15 – $1.25.

Notes for our teachers

  • Flavoring Oils: The Classroom Size Lip Balm Kit will come with 6 drams of random flavors. The Single Kit or Refill Lip Balm Kit will each come with 1 dram of a random flavor of our oils. Our oils are food-safe flavoring oils. We recommend starting off with about ½ tsp. in our Single Kit batch (50 lip balms) and adding more if a stronger flavor is desired. The 1 dram bottle will yield 0.75 tsp. Some of the flavorings will be stronger than others, so experiment to find the amount you prefer.
  • Zinc Oxide: This particular zinc oxide is non-nano, which means the particles are large enough not to be absorbed by the skin. Because of this, it is less likely to irritate or cause allergic reactions. It sits on top of the skin and reflects both UVA and UVB light.

Single & Refill Kits

The Single Batch Kit has all the ingredients necessary to make 50 lip balms, including a lip balm filling tray. These trays are very handy for filling your lip balms easily, quickly and with less mess and waste of product. The kit will come with 1 dram of a random flavor of our oils.

Purchase a Refill Kit when your supplies have run low and continue to run this fundraiser for many years to come! One refill kit provides the ingredients needed to make 50 lip balms but does not include the filling tray. Please keep in mind that, while the lip balms may be made without using the filling tray, the project will take considerably longer and more product will be wasted in the process. The kit will come with 1 dram of a random flavor of our oils.
