Quench Night Lip Balm
Quench Night Lip Balm is an ultra-moisturizing, mild lip balm. It can be used before bed time for overnight moisturizing as you sleep. My wife keeps a tin at her bedside table and applies it right before bedtime. Trust me, it works great!

Sunflower seed oil: We use a proprietary sunflower seed oil blended with vitamin E. Like other oils , it can retain moisture in the skin and lips. It may also provide a protective barrier that protects the lips. Sunflower seed oil also contains appreciable quantities of vitamins A, D, and E.
Coconut oil: Coconut oil is a unique substance. It is a plant based oil that is solid and white at room temperature. But melts into a clear oil with just a few of degrees of heat. Coconut oil contains saturated fats. Most of these are in the form of medium chain triglycerides, short segments of healthy fats that the body loves.

Beeswax: Beeswax is a natural wax produced in the bee hives 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 world to yield one pound of beeswax. Beeswax has superior attributes to barrier creams (usually mineral oil based) when used as a base for products such as our Quench Night Lip Balm.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E has sometimes been described as the “lightening rod” of the cell because it allows 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 the skin and lips. 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 reduce (UV) light damage.
Peppermint essential oil: The Peppermint Essential oil contained in B & G Organics Quench Night Lip balm is known both for its warming and cooling properties.
