Not everyone needs lip balm (just hydrate by drinking water and avoiding to omuch alcohol and don’t lick your lips too often or scrub peeling skin). Most lip balms are made with petroleum (petrol) or beeswax (not vegan).
Battle Green Lip Balms are sold in paper push-up tubes or tubes or metal tins, your choice. In five scents, each chunky tin is built to last and made with cocoa butter and jojoba oil. Choose from mandarin, rose, lime, peppermint or vanilla.
Avoid aromatherapy oils (and hibiscus) for pregnancy/nursing or affected medical conditions. Avoid shea butter for latex allergies. Keep lip balms away from pets due to cocoa butter, essential oils and zinc/titanium oxide (also found in natural sun creams – don’t let them lick your skin till it’s washed off!)
Cold sores are contagious so don’t go kissing anyone (especially not babies, this can lead to serious neonatal herpes).
vegan sea buckthorn lip balm
This sea buckthorn lip balm is also in a cardboard tube, using the healing power of a Nordic berry with the orange from beta-carotene. Rich in omega acids, the oil is cold-pressed from a remote area of Russia and unscented, but a natural berry scent.
