Keeping your lips moist and hydrated is important especially in the winter months. Unfortunately many lip balm products are chock full of harsh chemicals and ingredients that are not good for the lips, or the body. Being applied so close to the mouth, ingesting unwanted chemicals with lip balms is very easy to do. As lips are very small parts of the body, we often overlook the importance of making sure our lip products are safe to use.
Many popular brands, such as ChapStick, are formulated with synthetic preservatives known as parabens. Parabens have been linked to cancers and reproductive health issues. The ultra-sticky consistency of many lip balm products is mainly due to petroleum. This chemical may seem like it is highly moisturizing, but it actually suffocates the skin causing it to become drier once the petroleum is removed. Dirt and dead skin cells can also become trapped on the lips.
Evolution of Smooth Lip Balms are 99% all natural and are formulated with a base of natural oils, such as olive, coconut and jojoba. Not to mention they are made without parabens and petroleum. They are suitable to use on small children and babies. EOS balms also contain vitamins that help restore the skin over time with repeated use.
EOS balms come in many different varieties, such as Sweet Mint, Vanilla Mint and Coconut Milk. They have a mild, sweet taste as they are made with stevia and natural flavors. They are available in their signature sphere shape, and in stick form. These wonderful lip balm can be purchased at most drug stores and major retailers such as Target and Walmart. The products can be also ordered online on Amazon and thru https://evolutionofsmooth.ca/.
In conclusion, if you do not want it inside of your body, avoid putting it on your lips. It is best to chose alternative products with all natural ingredients that you can feel good about using.
