This delicious lip balm will nourish and protect your lips with a fresh, summery aroma. Apricot kernel oil is fast and deep absorbing. It is renowned for its plethora of nourishing constituents that facilitate the healing of chapped and dry skin. Mango butter is a soft carrier butter that is fast absorbing and is a great emollient. It is reputed to have wound healing and soothing properties, especially for chapped, damaged, dry or mature skin.
The therapeutic-grade essential oils of lime, carrot seed and clove are chosen for their specific properties making them ideal for lip care. Lime essential oil is said to have antiseptic and antiviral properties. (We use steam-distilled lime essential oil, making it safe to use in sunlight, unlike its cold-pressed counterpart). Carrot seed oil is intensely nourishing and is said to have anti-fungal properties to help protect from cracking the skin in the corners of the mouth. Clove oil is reputed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial anti-aging qualities. It also has been shown to have significant antioxidant properties, which protect from environmental irritants and are anti-aging. Clove oil is also said to naturally plumps the lips.
We use candelilla wax as a binding agent to make the balm firmer and easier to apply. Candelilla wax is also said to be moisturising in its own right and protective against the elements.
All ingredients in this product, with the exception of the natural vitamin E oil and the candelilla wax, are certified-organic. All essential oils are therapeutic-grade. We use fair-trade, certified-organic mango butter. While vitamin E has beneficial properties for skin care in its own right, its antioxidant quality also acts as a natural preservative for purely oil-based skincare products like this. We use vitamin E oil that is 100% natural and produced from GMO-free soybeans.
We hope that in the future we will be able to gain eco-certification for our products, so please support us on our journey, and let us know all your feedback.
