Hurraw! SPF 15 Sun Balm Lip Balm
We love the Sun. It's amazing. We believe limited, smart exposure is actually pretty o.k. for the skin.
But for those long exposure times, our SPF 15 Sun Balm will give your lips the extra protection they need.
It glides on silky smooth *(and virtually clear) like our regular balms but we formulated it to be extra thick and creamy for longer staying power
while out in those shining rays! Juicy Tangerine, calming Roman Chamomile and a hint of Vanilla make it nourishing and calming for your lips.
Packed full of amazing cold pressed oils to moisturize, protect and heal.
Red Raspberry Seed oil: Exceptionally high in tocopherols, this lovely oil nourishes the lips, is anti-inflammatory and proven to help in the absorbance of the Sun's rays.
Sea Buckthorn oil: Super rich and off the charts in essential fatty acids, carotenes, tocopherols, and phytosterols which are great for healing sun-damaged lips.
Pomegranate Seed oil: Deeply penetrating and an anti-oxidant powerhouse; remarkable for the outer epidermal layer of the lips.
Here's the deal with Zinc Oxide. We use non nano Zinc Oxide in our Sun Balm. Zinc Oxide is the only all natural, broad spectrum (blocks both UVA and UVB) sun screen available today. Zinc Oxide is a mineral. It protects your lips by sitting on top of them and thus, provides a physical barrier against UVA and UVB rays. It actually deflects the rays away from the skin to prevent any harm. For adequate protection it must be applied often.
*You really only need one or two swipes of Sun balm for protection, many swipes will indeed give your lips a white tint.
Be sure to apply it often for protection and to keep that physical zinc barrier alive and well.
As an interesting side note, to get our SPF 15 factor verified, our balm was laboratory tested on...Humans!
Super smooth, not draggy, not sticky, not sweet, not too glossy, not too smelly, never grainy, long lasting; plus it holds up to being in a back jeans pocket all day without melting!
Hurraw! Balm contains certified organic, raw, cold pressed and centrifuged extracted, nut/seed oils and butters that
have been processed below 118F degrees and are still chocked full of their essential nutrients and enzymes. Although more expensive, the quality of raw oils and butters is superb and you'll feel the difference!

First few weeks I used this I was barely getting any product onto my lips at all, it was solid, dragging on my lips without transferring. It is a bit better now, maybe it was too cold? However I find the smell really strong and slightly unpleasant, and it's not particularly moisturising. I would still try other lip balms by this brand, but maybe more scented ones.
