This lip balm is made to speed the repair of dry and chapped lips. Menthol is well-known for its sterilizing effect so this helps prevent infection. Like many of our products, it also has Allantoin which is a repair superstar. Combined with Honey, which is also known for skin repair, this balm has already performed minor miracles on lips. This one has a "lemony tingle" upon application.
What ingredients do you avoid when making a lip balm?
There's lots of things you won't find in these lip balms (or any of our other products) because they were all formulated for family members and close friends. This includes Paraffin and Mineral Oil which derive from petroleum, but are commonly found in most commercial lip products. We don’t think putting the stuff that goes into our cars on our lips is the healthiest thing we can do, especially when everything on the lips eventually gets eaten.
We also don’t use any synthetic preservatives such as Parabens and Phenoxyethanol, although they're pretty common too, including with a few brands that claim to be natural (you know who you are!). We avoid a lot of other things too, way too many to list here.
Cera Alba (Beeswax), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Glycine Soja (Soya Bean) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Allantoin, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Mentha Arvensis (Menthol), Honey.
