Our Lip Balms are made in small batches using a beautiful blend of natural oils and butter to replenish moisture to your lips! You don't need a lot of ingredients in your lip balms, you just need ones that work.

Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Rice Bran Oil, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Zinc Oxide, Sweetener, and flavoring.

  • Sweet Almond Oil - softens lips, helps prevent chapped lips, and helps keep lips moisturized. Vit E present in the oil helps to keep lips healthy and protects them from UV rays. Also rich in fatty acids which help to retain moisture and heal chapped lips.
  • Beeswax - naturally hydrating and increases essential moisture. Helps to retain natural skin moisture. Moisturizing – Beeswax contains natural emulsifiers that help retain moisture, making it a great ingredient for dry, chapped lips. Protects lips from UV rays – Much like how sunblock protects your skin, beeswax can protect your lips from harmful UV rays. Protective – Beeswax contains antibacterial elements that are great for protecting sensitive skin. Natural – No parabens, added chemicals, or alcohol that could be irritating to the skin.
  • Rice Bran Oil - rich in Vitamin E and fatty acids. Rice bran oil is able to deeply penetrate into skin's layers, nourishing it from within, making your skin very soft and velvety.
  • Castor Oil - adds gloss and soothes chapped lips. Rich in the monounsaturated fatty acid ricinoleic acid, a known humectant. Humectants help retain skin moisture by preventing water loss through the outer layer of your skin.
  • Shea Butter -  hydrates lips and helps your lips hold on to moisture and helps to heal chapped lips. Let's run through the vitamins that help to lubricate your lips, which will make you want to make sure that shea butter in your lip balm. Vitamin A prevents dryness in the first place and is soothing to sore lips. Vitamin E lubricates the lips and is also soothing. Vitamin F is a moisture sealer. Vitamin K stops and prevents bleeding. Bleeding! Yes, that's the worst part of chapped, dry lips. When our lips reach this stage, we know that vital moisture and nourishment is desperately needed. And thankfully, all of these vitamins are found in shea butter, which is known to seal in the moisture and keep it there. As shea butter is highly emollient, this means that it is excellent at preventing dryness. It penetrates the skin deeply and contains 60% fat, such as oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linolenic acids. Essential fatty acids are needed for the production of collagen, which is the building blocks of the vitality and structure of our skin. It's also anti-inflammatory and anti-aging, so for lips, this is good news for keeping our lips plump and smooth. Sore lips can be soothed by the anti-inflammatory properties of shea butter and the nutrition that will penetrate the lips to keep them healthy.
  • Coconut Oil - melts easily with moisturizing benefits. Coconut oil protects your skin. The barrier created by coconut oil blocks bacteria and irritants from causing more damage. This is especially helpful if your lips have an open sore that is exposed to air. The lauric acid in coconut oil has nourishing properties that seep into your skin. Some coconut oils absorb quickly, providing moisture to heal dry, chapped lips.
  • Zinc Oxide - just like your skin, your lips are sensitive to the sun, and too much sun can cause them to chap. Helps to block UV rays.
