Beauty Must Have: Lip Balm

Whether it's summer, winter, autumn or spring lip balm is an absolute beauty must-have! 

When it comes to buying lip balm, natural & organic lip balms are always the best choice. 
So why choose natural? Well, most cheap commercial lip balms are full of nasties like mineral oil, chemical additives, preservatives and petrolatum (which is made from crude oil - yuck!).  

You can still moisturise and nourish your dry lips, while also being friendly to the environment with these eco-friendly natural lip balms.

BURT'S BEES  Get naturally soft, healthy lips. 100% Natural. 

Give your lips the soothing feeling they deserve. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. We've even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle. Take your pick of an old-fashioned yellow tin or a recycled plastic tube. No wonder it's their most popular product.

Key Ingredient - Beeswax: 
A natural wax made by bees in the cell walls of honeycombs, this substance is a natural emulsifier used in cosmetics. It adds a wonderful natural smell and color to products and helps to seal and protect the skin when used in moisturising formulas. 

Burt's Bees does NOT conduct product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals. A few of their products contain ingredients derived from animals such as beeswax, royal jelly, milk and carmine.

ECO LIPS  Experience the difference with Eco Lips.

Their SPF Lip Balm is perfect for the eco-chicks who love sand, surf and the great outdoors. It contains aloe leaf extract to protect lips under the harshest conditions. 

The hero product is their Gold USDA Certified Organic Lip Balm made with the finest certified organic jojoba oil. The ultimate lip moisturiser, enriched with vitamin A & E and made with organic sunflower oil and organic beeswax, this lip balm is unflavoured.  

For the Vegan Vixens, Eco Lips created a Bee Free Vegan Lip Balm made of candelilla wax, organic jojoba oil, vitamin E & organic cocoa butter to leave your lips incredibly soft and supple. It's like a vacation for your lips! (cruelty-free, gluten free, organic & vegan)
