Vintage: This item is vintage so will show superficial signs of age and wear
Organic Beeswax (for beeswax balm): A natural emollient that keeps the skin soft. An occlusive which creates a layer on the skin that slows down transepidermal water loss (TEWL). This protective barrier will not only keep that area of skin highly moisturised but it will protect the skin from external damaging agents - hence why beeswax is a perfect ingredient for a lip balm. Over many hours, the beeswax will naturally wear off allowing normal skin function so does not block the pores like petrochemicals do.
Candelilla Wax (for vegan balm): This plant-based wax has wonderful protective properties to create barriers between the skin and harsh environmental stressors. Allows skin to breathe, unlike petroleum based balms, so will further aid hydration, smoothing and softening of the lips.
Organic Shea Butter: A superb emollient and is excellent for deeply moisturising and smoothing the skin so excellent for dry lips. Protective and healing, especially for dry and chapped skin as it contains phytosterols which stimulate the basal layer of the dermis to regenerate and repair skin cells.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil: This oil is excellent to lock in moisture into the skin as it actively slows down Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) as it has a similar composition to our skin’s natural sebum. Really helps to hydrate and soften the skin so superb for dry and chapped lips. Added extra in that its packed with anti oxidants too.
