Our lips are among the most sensitive areas of the body and have been perceived as one of the ultimate symbols of beauty for centuries. Lips are particularly vulnerable because the skin is so thin, and thus they are often the first to present signs of dryness. External factors like dry air, cold temperature and wind can all draw moisture away from the skin. Further, cold sores (herpes simplex virus) often show on lips during outbreaks.
Common lip balms usually contain allergenic ingredients like beewax, lanolin (from sheep), paraffin or pertroleum jelly from hydrocarbons. While all of the above ingredients seal moisture in our skin (occlusive characteristics), they have potentially undesirable side effects and are either from non-renewable resources or from animals.
Biovera’s new organic lip balm features a unique and highly effective blend of all-organic and vegetarian ingredients. Cocao butter is an elegant, smooth occlusive ingredient. It feels pleasant and not too rich, yet it seals moisture in your lips. Sunflower seed wax supports the protective characteristics of cocoa butter well and is suitable for the most sensitive skin. Aloe vera barbadensis gel aids the skin’s healing process (eg. from cold sores) and attracts moisture to the skin (nature’s most powerful humectant). Natural vitamins a and e provide powerful protection against free radicals and harmful uv rays, while peppermint oil lends our organic lip balm a fresh and pleasant feel. Last we use almond oil for its moisturizing properties and smooth non-greasy feel. It is rich in vitamins a and e and supports the immune funtion of the skin.
