Abstract: Nowadays, natural cosmetics have become more popular and acceptable to consumers than the chemically synthesized ones. In this study, we have developed a new formulation for gel-based lipstick by using the mixture of Longan honey and natural color extracts from Sappan wood (Caesalpinia sappan L.) and Roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.). The final products were analyzed for their physical and antioxidant properties. The new formulated lipstick showed good antioxidantproperties ranging from IC 50 0.25±0.12 to 5.12±0.24 mg/ml when tested by using DPPH radical scavenging method. Stability test was also conducted by several heating and cooling cycles. The physical characters (i.e. viscosity and pH) were also examined and recorded. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications.
