Allergic To The Chemicals In Your Lip Balm?

Here Are Some Natural Alternatives To Chemical Filled Lip Balms

The list below references lip balms containing mainly natural ingredients. You won’t find artificial Fragrance, synthetic preservatives such as parabens or chemical UV filters like benzophenone here. Here are some alternatives if you are allergic to some of the chemicals used in lip balms. Keep in mind even natural products contain allergens such as propolis or essential oils. If essential oils and botanical extracts irritate your skin, it may be helpful to find a lip balm with just the basic ingredients such as a carrier oil and wax. As a reminder, it is possible for anyone to develop sensitization to any ingredient, even if you’ve never had a problem with it in the past. Testing a small area on your skin, or in this case, your lips is always recommended and always read ingredient labels along with contacting manufacturers if you have a known allergy.
