Lip Balm Ingredient Information

beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter

Extra virgin coconut oil:

Virgin coconut oil has not been refined, so the nourishing fatty acid content retains its.rejuvinating, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. Coconut oil is an emollient, meaning it traps moisture in.  It also provides a glossy shine.

Shea butter:

Naturally extracted from the shea nut, shea butter has been used for centuries as a cosmetic ingredient. It contains vitamins A and E, providing some natural protection from UV rays. It acts as an antioxidant, softener, and is non-comedogenic.  It holds in moisture and creates a protective seal on the lips.  It’s often used as a  primer for lip stick,

Beeswax:

Harvested from out own hives, the beeswax in our lip balms is sustainable. It protects from UV rays, locks in moisture, and contains small amounts of natural antimicrobial agents. It provides a barrier of protection while still allowing lips to breathe.

Jojoba oil:

Contains vitamin B, E, and minerals like copper and zinc.  It provides great slip and shine in lip balm

Lanolin:

Natural sheep lanolin contains cholesterol and esters from fatty acids, and closely resembles sebum produced by human oil glands. It protects against weather and gives lips a  smooth texture. It is a soothing, natural wax.  Collecting lanolin from sheep causes no harm to the animal.

Vit E:

Naturally helps preserve the oils in the lip balm by preventing oxidation. It boosts circulation, promotes cell regeneration, and repairs free radical damage

Vanilla CO2:  The only true way to add real vanilla to an oil based product, it is very concentrated and as close to a vanilla essential oil as you can get. It has a mellow, sweet and smooth scent.

Peppermint and birch: natural disinfectants and bright energizing minty scent.

Tangerine, lemon, and lime essential oils: relaxing and mood lifting scents.  Do not apply this balm directly before sun exposure, as a slight phototoxicity may occur.
