What you put on your lips, and the lips of those people that you love matters. It matters as much as what you eat because your lip products will be licked off and enter your body during the course of a day.
Did you know that many lip care products contain toxic ingredients like lead and chemical allergens like flavors and scents. Even natural versions of flavors and scents can be allergens, causing dry lips and the cycle described as ‘addiction to lip balm’. It is a perfect cycle if you want to sell lots of lip balm but not perfect if you want to help heal chapped lips.
As a dermatologist and mother, and as a consumer that favors organic foods over processed foods, what I recommend for lip care is very specific. I balance my concerns for a product that has food grade safety with my commitment to recommend only hypoallergenic lip care products. This is then filtered by what I know to be effective for protecting and healing delicate lip skin. My natural lip balm is hypoallergenic, for the most sensitive skin. It is made from organic and natural ingredients only AND I have the final product organic certified too. I want you to know you can trust this product. I also want to raise the awareness of how important it is to use only hypoallergenic lip products made from natural ingredients that are safe. The ingredients in my lip balm are unlikely to cause lip allergy for even those people with the most sensitive and reactive skin.
My lip balm is perfect for those people on Accutane (isotretinoin), who have severely chapped lips. It is the perfect lip balm to heal wind chapped lips, to keep lips hydrated when you use tretinoin (Retin A and Renova) and other retinol products, as a night lip therapy to keep lips moist and to use during the day to protect lips from chapping. You can also apply it over lip pencil or lipstick as a lip gloss.
