We often overlook protecting our lips whenever we walk out the door, but we can’t neglect the damages that the sun can do to our lips. When lips are not protected from the sun, there are many negative repercussions. Lips become dry and chapped, collagen formation gets damaged and our lips lose elasticity, and in severe cases nonmelanoma cancers can even from.
Our lips do not contain melanin, which is the pigment in our skin that helps block out the sun’s UV rays. Without melanin, our lips are more susceptible to be burned and form basal and squamous cell carcinomas. To prevent these effects, many doctors recommend wearing a lip product with SPF and to reapply frequently to ensure that your lips are being protected at all times.
Our new SPF 15 Lip Balm is completely 100% natural and is a base of lip softening coconut and avocado oils. While nourishing your lips, our lip balms also shield the sun’s UV rays so you can have soft kissable lips that are protected from harm.
