Like all our Lip Balms, we made our SPF 15 Balm to be edible as well as moisturising and conditioning for the skin. We all want soft and healthy lips without having to eat petroleum jelly or UV Filters.
For our SPF 15 Lip Balm we simply added non-nano Zinc Oxide to our list of natural moisturising oils to make this one of the most natural SPF lip balms ever. We hope you and your lips enjoy!

|Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil||High in the types of fatty acids needed for troubled skin.|
|Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil||Jojoba Oil is one of the most moisturising skin care oils around and is one of our all-time favourite moisturising oils. It is light and sinks into the skin easily. Curiously, Jojoba Oil is actually a liquid wax. It is also very non comedogenic meaning that it does not clog the pores. It makes for a good conditioner too. It helps keep the hair shaft smooth and soft. Most hair conditioners use silicone to coat the hair (cyclomethicone or dimethicone), however Jojoba Oil is much more natural and moisturising and doesn’t cause so much build-up.|
|Zinc Oxide||The most natural sun protection barrier. There is a lot we would like to say about sunscreens but cannot. We strongly encourage people to start researching the ingredients in the sunscreen they choose and what the actual benefits may be.|
|Beeswax||An edible way to help turn products from a cream into a balm.|
|Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)||A rich moisturising butter which, in our opinion, is a great alternative to Lanolin.|
|Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E)||We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Natural Vitamin E has up to twice the bioavailability of synthetic forms. Vitamin E has antioxidant action as well as free radical scavenger properties. Abundant assortments of researchers from diversified medical fields have theorized that this can slow the aging process. (Sources: Skin Pharmacology and Applied Skin Physiology, November-December 2001, and Free Radical Biology and Medicine, October 1999).|
|Hydrolyzed Candelilla Wax||A protective wax that also helps the balm be nice and firm.|
|Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Fruit Extract||Strawberry Fruit Extract. That’s it!|
|Allantoin||Comfrey Root has long been known as a healing plant. Allantoin was identified as the part of the plant that performed this function and it has since been synthesised to make it more concentrated and effective. So the allantoin we use is the pure ingredient. Allantoin has been termed a cell proliferant in texts such as the "United States Dispensatory". It is said to clean away dead tissue, hastening the growth of new healthy tissue. Allantoin has been also termed a counter irritant. Allantoin produces its desirable effects by promoting and speeding up the healthy, natural processes of the body. It helps the skin to help itself. It is also promoted as preventing lines and wrinkles by assisting skin repair.|
|Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax||A protective wax that also helps the balm be nice and firm.|
