With the increase in skin care awareness we have started taking special care of our body regardless of our age. And for that we have started using different skin care, face care, hand, palm and even foot care products, but what about the cutest part of your face?? Your lips. Lips are the part of your body grabbing the most attention of everyone with its charm. If not taken proper care of, your lips can become dull, dry and cracked.

Many of us love using lip balms.Especially those that come with nice scents and delicious flavor. You love the way they keep your lips smooth, soft and moisturized especially during cold nights. But do you know what your favorite lip balms may contain?

There are many lip balms available in the market filled with chemicals, artificial colour, petroleum, soy, and cheap fillers which looks good and may even make your lips look nice initially, but over time they can damage your lips.

 

Some of these  lip balms consider only the beauty aspect, ignoring the health benefits and soft character of the skin on lips. Such products, gradually, will damage the natural color, softness and glow of the lips.

Whether you wish it or not  the lip balms always end up in your mouth. So if we use chemical filled lip balms, then indirectly we are consuming chemicals, which is obviously harmful for us!!

So do you love your lips? Then why take the risk?

What you need to be aware of is that not all lip balms are the same. As lips are very much sensitive it needs try to use an  Organic or Natural Lip Balm. These are one of the best lip balms for your lips. Make sure that you go for ones that are labeled organic or at least all-natural.

Below are the Top 5 Organic Lip Balm benefits:- 

no-harsh-chemicals

  1. Chemical-Free Beauty:Traditional lip balms might contain primarily synthetic ingredients such as petrochemicals and manufactured ingredients for coloring, fragrance and therapeutic benefits. Organic lip balms use strictly natural ingredients to provide color and promote softness and moisture. For example, many organic lip balms include ingredients such as beeswax, cocoa butter, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

2.Cruelty-Free Beauty:In addition, many organic lip balm manufacturers are committed to creating only products that don’t harm animals and that are ideal for people who practice a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. They don’t use any ingredients derived from or tested on animals, and they don’t conduct any animal testing themselves.

eco-friendly

3.Eco-Friendly Beauty: Non-organic lip balms sometimes contain ingredients that can harm the environment, either through how they’re derived or how they’re manufactured. Many of these balms, for example, contain petroleum-based products, which is obtained by drilling into the earth. They may also contain synthetic products that are manufactured and may produce byproducts that can damage the environment. Organic lip balms, however, contain natural components that often have far less impact on air, water, and soil.
