The Powerful, Natural Ingredients in Vegan Lip Balm Explained

Are you looking to understand what's behind the softening, hydrating effects of your favourite vegan lip balm? Whether your skincare obsessed or simply trying to keep your lips from cracking, we've broken down the key ingredients found in our premium lip balms that shape the More Than Lips brand. Discover their healing properties and why they're essential in your daily lip care regimen.

Coconut Oil for Deep Hydration

Coconut oil has moisture-sealing properties due to lauric acid being present which creates a protective barrier. This barrier locks in moisture keeping the lips hydrated and preventing them from drying and cracking, unlike cheaper alternatives that provide temporary relief but lack long-term benefits. 

Specialized Ingredients for Enhanced Protection

From your daily morning Starbucks fix to the endless hours of chit-chatting with your best friends, your lips need to be able to withstand it all! We go the extra mile by swapping generic wax blends with specialized ingredients like candela wax and red raspberry seed oil for proper protection and care. Candela Wax forms a shield against harsh environmental aggressors ensuring your lips remain guarded and pampered with every application, while also enhancing the balm's luxurious texture. In addition, Red Raspberry Seed Oil is a potent antioxidant-rich ingredient known for its natural sun protection and anti-aging properties. 

A Touch of Softness with Shea Butter

Shea butter is another hero ingredient, beloved for its rich concentration of vitamins such as Vitamin A, E & F, as well as fatty acids, which are crucial for nourishing and rejuvenating the lips. Unlike synthetic emollients, it forms a breathable barrier that moisturizes and protects the lips, helping to heal and prevent chapping.

Essential Oils for an Elevated Sensory Experience

Finally, 100% organic, grade A essential oils are added for their delightful scents and additional therapeutic benefits. Options like peppermint can invigorate the senses and provide a natural plumping effect, while others, like vanilla or citrus, can elevate the mood and offer mild antibacterial benefits.

Choosing the Right Lip Balm

When selecting a lip balm, it's important to consider not just the flavour or scent but the synergy of ingredients that are created to elevate your day-to-day because did you know on average, people only spend 15 minutes a day on health-related self-care?

By choosing a well-formulated lip balm like ours is a gentle reminder that self-care can offer more than just superficial effects; it can provide deep nourishment, environmental protection, and healing support for the skin.
