Life Cycle
of a

Castor oil: Grown from the castor bean
Beeswax: Collected from honeycombs in a beehive
Silica: Comes from sand and quartz
Candelilla wax: Grown from the leaves of candelilla shrub
Plastic: Comes from crude oil and natural gas
Raw Materials:
•First, the raw ingredients for the lipstick are melted and mixed—separately because of the different types of ingredients used. One mixture contains the solvents, a second contains the oils, and a third contains the fats and waxy materials. These are heated in separate stainless steel or ceramic containers.
•That and liquid oils are mixed with pigments
•After pigment mass if prepared, it’s agitated, poured into tubing molds, cooled, and separated from the molds.

•Plastic- Crude oil mixed with natural gas and chemicals in a processing plant
•Silica- Sand/quartz is refined
•Castor oil- extracted from castor beans
•Candelilla wax- Leaves crushed, oil extracted
•Beeswax- extract the honey, cut off the wax caps from each honeycomb cell with an uncapping knife or machine
Material Processing
•Packaged in tubes (made from plastic)
•Tubes are individually placed in a cardboard box
•Once lipsticks are packaged, they are put in insulated bags to keep them from melting and put in boxes to be transported.

The different finishes are amplified, amplified crème, cremesheen, frost, glaze, lustre, matte, and satin. Cost 15.00 each. They can last about 2 years
MAC has a program called
Back2MAC. After you use 6
lipsticks, you can take it the empty packaging and get a free lipstick. That way, the packaging can be melted down and made into more packaging, not dumped in a landfill.
People don't reuse lipsticks because that's unsanitary.
Most people just throw away the empty lipstick tubes. The empty lipstick tubes go to a landfill, but because they are plastic, they don't disinigrate. This is really bad for the environment having all of that waste sitting in a landfill.
