Skin, including lips will always need hydration as well as exfoliation. Everyday you wake up, try to exfoliate your lips. Soft old toothbrush or a cheese cloth should work. No chemicals, no additives, just rub it gently. If your lips are dry when you first wake up, put some lip balm on and wait a few minutes before scrubbing off dead skin cells off your lips. High end quality ingredients without the price tag! There is NO water added to this product, which does NOT have the need for preservatives. NO additives, artificial color, chemicals, Sodium Lauryl / Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Myreth Sulfate, Petroleum, Phenoxyethanol or Parabens, Preservatives, Sulfates or Phthalates, synthetic fragrances, Cruelty Free with No animal testing. This is a Vegan lip balm. This is hydrating and long lasting because it does not contain Menthol and Alcohol. This will not make your lips peel as it does not contain Petroleum or any product that is derived from Petroleum (Microcrystalline Wax, Paraffin, etc.). You won't get dermatitis (small white bumps that look like it's filled with liquid over inflamed/irritated skin) which can be caused by jojoba oil, beeswax, calendula, sunflower seed oil and cocoa butter. You won't ingest small amounts of poison, because this does not contain castor oil or castor seed oil. There are no coloring additives, which can irritate skin. This is 100% natural and organic. Just because it is natural and organic does NOT mean this will melt easily. This glides easily on lips and can also be used on elbows, fingers, hands, feet and knees. This will soften hardened skin. This is a Vanilla flavor, so it doesn’t have the properties of what fragrance would have if you would add that to a skin care product (alcohol, etc.). Ingredients: Shea Butter, Kokum Butter, Candelilla Wax, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Vanilla flavor. You will get 3 pieces of lip balm with this order.
