We use a Proprietary Sunflower Seed oil blended with Vitamin E as an ingredient because like other oils , can retain moisture in the lips and skin. It may also provide a protective barrier that moisturizes and protects the lips. Sunflower seed oil also contains appreciable quantities of Vitamins A, D, and E.
Coconut Oil is a unique substance, a plant based oil that is solid and white at room temperature but melts into a clear oil with just a couple of degrees of heat. Coconut oil contains saturated fats, but most of these are the form of medium chain triglycerides, short segments of healthy fats that the body loves. Coconut oil is very good at hydrating the skin and lips. It sinks in deep, conditions, moisturizes, and softens the skin and lips. Coconut oil naturally clears away dirt, grime, and dead skin cells. It even has some antibacterial properties, killing off harmful bacteria. Coconut oil is the all in one natural solution to all your skin and lip problems. It soothes, speeds healing, softens and protects against sun damage. It also acts as an anti-oxidant to prevent cellular aging.
Beeswax is a natural wax produced in the bee hive of honey bees. The wax is formed by the worker bees. It is estimated that bees collectively fly 150,000 miles , roughly six times around the earth to yield one pound of beeswax. Beeswax has superior properties to similar barrier creams (usually mineral oil based creams such as petroleum jelly) when used as a base for products such as lip balm.
Vitamin E has sometimes been described as the “lightening rod” of the cell, allowing reactive molecules to strike the cell, like lightening, without causing damage. The “lightening rod” function of Vitamin E is particularly apparent in the case of skin and lips, since Vitamin E directly protects the skin from ultraviolet radiation (also called UV light). In numerous research studies, Vitamin E applied topically to the skin and lips has been shown to prevent UV damage.
