Almost everyone suffers from dry, chapped lips – and it seems like no matter what time of year, they can occur any time! Dry and chapped lips are often caused by two main factors: weather conditions and dehydration. Both hot and dry weather can cause our lips to lose their natural moisture. And whether we are in summer or winter, our lips get heavily affected. Because the skin on our lips lack oil glands, they won’t produce protective oil on their own. Therefore, we need to use nourishing oils, such as almond oil, coconut oil, and vitamin E oil. With the addition of an occlusive agent such as cocoa butter, you can nourish your lips back to their healthy, plump state and ensure your lips stay hydrated throughout the day without the need of constantly reapplying the product.
Our Lip Butters and Why They Are Special
We’re all used to seeing small tubes of lip balm at the checkout counter. Many of us even pick one up to refill our stash. But in the rush of our daily lives, we tend to glance over the ingredients and realize that what goes on our lips is important! After all, we’ve all put on a good layer of lip balm and proceeded to eat our lunch- where did all that lip balm go? (the answer is inside of you). So it’s important for us to pay as much attention as to what goes into our bodies as we do to what we put on our bodies.
Overt Organics lip butters are made of a blend of organic sweet almond oil, organic coconut oil, and organic cocoa seed butter. This combination delivers an intense hydration to your lips without the waxy or grainy feeling. With the addition of candelilla wax and vitamin E oil, our lip butters continue to hydrate your lips far after you’ve applied it! The key ingredient of our lip butter, however, is our full spectrum hemp extract – or our CBD. The CBD that we use in our lip butter contains essential cannabinoids, vitamins, and minerals that all continuously nourish the delicate skin around your lips promoting a healthy and glowing skin. The antioxidants and organic fatty acids help boost lip health.
While other lip balms and chapsticks on the market contain questionable ingredients such as parabens, mineral oils, and synthetic colors and dyes, our product is 100% vegan, comprised of primarily organic ingredients. By using ingredients that our body is already familiar with, we can avoid harmful side effects of using unnecessary chemicals.
It’s extremely important for us to take great care of our lips since damaged lips can leave us vulnerable to infections and illnesses. By using products such as our lip butter, you can ensure that your lips will remain plump, hydrated, and heathy!
