What's in LipSense Moisturizing Lip Balm?

Talking about what we put in our bodies is just as important as what we put on them, especially on the most sensitive skin on our bodies...our lips. By knowing what is in our products, we can know whether they are good for us or not.

Today, I'm going to talk about the key ingredients and benefits of each, within our LipSense Moisturizing Lip Balm.
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil): used to treat a wide variety of skin problems including bruises, burns, rash, scabies, skin infections, and wounds.

Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa): commonly referred to as Cocoa Butter, this vegetable oil is derived from the seeds of the tropical Cacao tree; it comes as a solid oil which softens the skin and protects it against environmental influences.

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter): considered a plant lipid, it works as a natural moisturizer; oil and fat components of skin prevent moisture evaporation, the lipids work by providing lubrication to the skin’s surface.

Corallina Officinalis (Blue Seaweed): improves the suppleness and the elasticity of skin by stimulating the renewal of damaged skin cells, while moisturizing and soothing the skin.

Algae (Seaweed) Extract: hydrates, protects and softens the skin. It is essential in the penetration of the top layer of the stratum corneum and enhances the skin’s ability to repair itself.

Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract: a skin-conditioning agent used in cosmetics and beauty care products because of its ability to act in oxidative stress and improve skin conditions.

Orchis Morio (Orchid): used as a preparation of emollient products, this powerful anti-oxidant provides free-radical protection and maximum moisturization.

Retinyl Palmitate: also known as Vitamin A, it is fundamental for increasing skin elasticity and thickening of the epidermis and the dermis, especially in RNA synthesis to speed up exfoliation to reveal younger, plumper skin cells which produces new and healthy cells in the skin and the body,

Tocopherol: also known as Vitamin E, it is essential for maintaining the activities of enzymes in the cells and for the formation of red blood cells. Acting as an anti-oxidant, it has been shown to inhibit skin cancer and aid in the healing of skin ailments.

Glucosamine HCL: enhances the body’s ability to manufacture collagen.

Phenoxyethanol: an oily liquid used as a bactericide and topical antiseptic.

Propylene Glycol: an organic compound used as a ‘carrier’ or ‘holder’ of active ingredients that also softens skin.
