Anything you put on your lips ends up in your mouth. Even the skin of our lips will absorb 90% of any product we apply to them. This means all the chemicals, toxins, synthetics and animal-derived ingredients from your favorite lip balm are invading your body.
So if you wouldn't eat it, you shouldn't use it.
Most lip balms have toxic chemicals like Parabens, Petroleum (yes, a refined version of gasoline), Phenol, Menthol, Salicylic Acid, Fragrances, Propylene Glycol, & Alcohol, which can cause hormonal disruption, eczema, dry skin, melanoma, and breakouts.
Even the “natural” brands use chemicals in their lip balm manufacturing.
Common animal ingredients used in more natural lip balm are beeswax and lanolin, which is the grease from sheep’s wool - a grim thought.
Finding a quality Vegan lip balm is hard. You might find yourself at the checkout when some natural lip balms catch your eye. Eagerly, you look at the ingredients hoping they match your values...only to be disappointed again.
It shouldn’t be this difficult. And you shouldn't have to pay through the nose to make a positive impact.
At Dignity Coconuts, we are committed to being ethical, affordable and impactful.
