We specially designed our 100% natural lip balms to nourish, protect, and moisturize your lips. Here are the ingredients we chose and why we chose them:
Coconut oil is known as a “super oil” that’s full of vitamin E, works as a terrific moisturizer, and contains fatty acids that are wonderful for your skin. In winter, it also insulates your lips from the cold.
Beeswax is thicker than apricot kernel oil, so instead of absorbing quickly, it stays on the surface of your lips as a protective barrier while still allowing your skin to breathe (unlike petroleum products, which suffocate your skin). It’s also anti-bacterial to help cuts heal faster and anti-inflammatory to soothe painful lips. As an extra benefit, beeswax makes lip balm firm, so it won’t melt in your purse.
Apricot Kernel Oil
Light and quickly absorbed into the skin, apricot kernel oil is rich in omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, which make it an excellent moisturizer.
Avocado oil is a little pricey, but worth it. Full of antioxidants like vitamins A and E, it helps heal skin damaged by sunlight. It also makes your lips supple and gives lip balm a soft, spreadable feel.
We do not use any artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Instead, our lip balms are pleasantly flavored with 100% natural essential oils, which also have skin benefits. Don’t worry; none of our essential oils are phototoxic (making your skin sensitive to sunlight).
