The primary purpose of lip balm is to provide a protective layer on the surface of your lips to seal-in moisture and protect them from the elements. Because the skin on your lips is so thin, it is vulnerable to dry air, cold temperatures, and wind. Skin dryness tends to show up there first.
There are many, many lip balms on the market, as you already know. You are faced with dozens of brands promising everything from simple waxing over to moisturizing and nourishing to plumping and retexturizing.
First our Lip Balm is handmade with only pure and natural ingredients. These include soothing beeswax, rich herbal butters like shea, cocoa, and aloe, and protecting and healing oils like rose hip, grape seed, and vitamin E.
Also you can be confident that you will never find questionable preservatives like parabens, corrosive cleaning agents like sulfates, or phthalates used to increase the flexibility in plastics. You can find these in other lip balms, toothpaste, tanning lotion, shaving gels, industrial cleaners, and shampoo! They are not needed, not natural, and clinically questionable so why put them on so important, thin, and vulnerable a part of your body, your lips! You will never find them in our Lip Balm.
Here are some of the ingredients you will find and why we use them to care for, protect, and heal your lips. For a complete list of the ingredients, please click here for our Cool Mint Lip Balm and here for our Orange Lip Balm.
