Organic Lip Balm for soft, supple, and plump lips!

The best lip balm to moisturize and nourish your lips


Taking care of your lips is a vital step in any self-care routine. While we tend to focus on cleansing and moisturizing our face twice a day, we might sometimes find ourselves neglecting to take care of our lips on a daily basis. If practicing good skin care is already one of your goals, then here’s a gentle reminder to also take care of your lips. After all, who doesn’t love having soft, plumped lips? Read on to know more about the importance of lip balm, why you should use Ancient Living Organic Lip Balm, and how to take care of your lips in this comprehensive guide.

What is a Lip Balm?

Simply put, a lip balm is designed to protect your lips. It also has other benefits like moisturizing and sometimes even brightening your lips to their natural pink state. Lip balm is one of those skin care products that we tend to oversee and just grab and use the first thing we get a hold of without carefully looking at the ingredients and their benefits. It’s also one of those beauty products that we don’t use unless we have chapped, dry lips.  A good lip balm should moisturize dry lips and support overall lip health.

What is a Natural Lip Balm?

A natural lip balm is made with organic and naturally derived ingredients and is often a better choice for those with sensitive lips. It contains nourishing ingredients such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Coconut Oil, and Beeswax. Natural and organic lip balms do not contain any harsh or toxic ingredients which reduces the chance of irritation on your lips.

A Brief History of Lip Balm

Historical evidence shows that even Cleopatra (who was known all over the world as a woman of surpassing beauty) and other pharaohs of Ancient Egypt used beeswax, olive oil, and animal fat as cosmetic ingredients. These natural components were used for both skin and lip care and some of which are still used in modern lip balms even today!

Oddly enough, in the 1800s – A woman by the name of Lydia Maria Child wrote a book called “The American Frugal Housewife” where she recommended using earwax to treat cracked lips! Not only is the mere thought of it repulsive but it is also super unhygienic and we do not recommend anyone to try it.

Later in the 1870s, the basis for modern lip balms was created by Robert Chesebrough who registered the patent for Vaseline in the United States. Over the course of time, lip balsam and chapsticks entered the beauty market and have since evolved to accommodate exotic ingredients, and flavors and there are numerous options to choose from.

What is in a Lip Balm and how does it work?

A lip balm usually contains at least two active ingredients or agents, one being a moisturizing element (also called an emollient or humectant) like petroleum jelly, glycerin, lanolin, or shea butter, and secondly a wax ingredient that helps the formula actually stick to your lips. The lip balm should be easy to spread across your lips and provide lasting protection and moisture.

Regardless of the ingredients used in the formula, most lip balm products work essentially function the same way. When you rub lip balm onto your lips, the ingredients present produce an “occlusive” layer of material. Occlusives are moisturizing agents that work by forming a protective layer on the surface of your skin and creating a barrier to prevent moisture loss. This creates a seal that prevents moisture from escaping the skin of your lips. Since dry air and cold temperatures gradually draw moisture away from your skin, this layer prevents the moisture from escaping in the first place, thus helping to keep your lips hydrated and healthy.

How Often Should You Apply Lip Balm?

Applying a good lip balm whenever necessary is recommended. Many lip balm enthusiasts apply it consistently throughout the day multiple times. We recommend you to use it in the morning once you wake up since chances are your lips are dry or you could apply it post-shower. Reapplying your lip balm post-eating is also important since while eating we tend to gradually lick our lips which could get saliva onto the surface of the lip. This wears down the coating of lip balm and is a sign to reapply it. Putting a little lip balm before bed during your nighttime skincare routine works wonders since it helps prevent your lips from drying out while your sleep.  

In short, apart from these instances apply and reapply lip balsam as and when you feel like it is required. However, be cautious since always using too much lip balm can cause your skin to lose its natural hydration levels, thus making it solely rely on lip balms to help to lock in moisture.
