Organic Vegan Lip Balm
Natural Lip balms: Lip balms made with all natural ingredients and not petrolatum or BHA or Parabens.
Petrolatum is made from petroleum – yes, what you put in your car – that has been refined. Some refining methods use toxic compounds. If the petroleum jelly becomes contaminated during the manufacturing process, possible Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, which have links to breast cancer, and other carcinogenic agents may get into the jelly. Another concern with petrolatum is that it creates an airtight barrier on the skin which can act as a penetration enhancer. This means absorption of any of the toxic ingredients below will be increased.
Butylated compounds are mainly used as a preservative in lip balms. Health concerns linked to these chemicals include endocrine disruption, organ-system toxicity, developmental and reproductive toxicity, cancer and respiratory irritation.
Natural lip balms are best for lips especially unscented ones like our we use healthy fatty butters.
