|Have you ever used a lip balms and wondered why your lips keep requiring more. Your lips are tingling ...What you'll discover will be shocking. You just assume everything on the market is safe and harmless. But there are actually several harmful ingredients that you want to avoid when choosing an effective lip balm, including ...|
> Petroleum Jelly / Petrolatum Some lip balms containing 100% petroleum jelly, an oil byproduct that may contain carcinogens (depending on the company's refining process) and cause allergic reactions. It also suffocates your lips rather than moisturizes. Though the product might feel soothing upon application, petroleum jelly is water-repellant and seals your pores so moisture can't get in or out. Despite approved as "safe" by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Petrolatum is not a product you want to include in your natural skin routine when there are so many better alternatives.
> Mineral Oil Like Petrolatum, mineral oil coats your skin with a plastic-like layer and prevents it from breathing. When used repeatedly, it also can cause more severe problems as it's derived from petroleum and may contain cancer-causing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). This can cause the skin to age prematurely. Is that something you want to put on your lips daily?
> Phenol is an ingredient used to kill bacteria growth, so it's included in many skincare products. But this chemical has also been shown to cause skin irritation, kidney and liver damage and even nervous system damage when absorbed through the skin regularly.
When you see it listed on lip balm ingredients — or any other skincare product for that matter — skip it.
> Other Chemicals, colors & fragrances Avoid any lip balms with artificial colors (D&C red no. 6, yellow no. 10, etc.), synthetic fragrances or other harmful chemicals.
>>>>> So, what should you look for in a safe lip balm ?
Choose products with naturally hydrating ingredients like beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, olive oil or cocoa butter. These ingredients work in harmony with your skin to sooth and hydrate while allowing your pores to breathe. If you're unsure about a specific ingredient on the label (i.e. you can't pronounce it), do a little research to make sure it's a healthy choice for your skin.
