Natural & Organic Lip Balm Ideas For Protecting Your Lips Against Harsh Dry Winter Weather

Winter weather with its cold temperatures and wind can have a dry, cracking, and even bleeding effect on lips.

An interesting fact is that your lips are the only part of your skin that doesn’t have oil glands to produce moisture, making your lips very prone to drying. Also, aging is a factor.

The older you get, the more prone your lips are to chapping, so you need to take care of them.

As always, you have a ton of options for what you can do to prevent or alleviate dry, chapped lips, but some options are healthier than others.

Lip balms are a great remedy for this, but like everything else, you always want to find the healthiest, most nourishing, and least toxic product that will benefit you.

Today, there are a lot of great options for natural and organic lip balms in stores and online. I found three really great options that I wanted to share. They’re from: Alba Botanica, Badger, and Purple Prairie Botanicals.

Alba Botanica

Alba Botanica is a really great brand for finding products that are 100 percent vegetarian, combining natural and organic certified ingredients, with no animal testing. The products also contain no meat or by-products from animal testing.

My favorite line of lip balm from Alba is the Un-Petroleum series, which comes in flavors: cherry, tangerine, and vanilla.

These lip balms have an SPF 18, as well as contain nourishing and moisturizing ingredients including vitamin E, jojoba oil, caster seed oil, beeswax, lanolin, evening primrose oil, and olive oil.

Another great thing about Alba products are their non-toxic formulations. They are made without all of the following: parabens, phthalates, artificial colors, propylene glycol, aluminum, mineral oil, petrolatum, oxybenzone, PABA, nano-particles, DEA, MEA or TEA, PEGs and PEG derivatives, ethoxylated ingredients associated with 1,4 dioxane, formaldehyde donors, and GMOs.
