A few benefits of this gorgeous lip balm
Castor oil is beneficial for your lips because the fatty acids retain the moisture on your skin and prevent it from drying. Castor oil acts as a natural barrier which prevents the water from escaping from our skin and lips thus preventing our skin from getting dried out.
Rice bran wax is used as an ingredient for cosmetics. Rice Bran Wax helps moisturise the skin and prevents moisture to evaporate out of the skin.
Jojoba Oil contains many essential fatty acids, powerful antioxidants and vitamins. Jojoba Oil is naturally gentle and non-irritating, making it perfect for basically every skin type; it balances oily skin, soothes sensitive skin and hydrates dry skin.
Hemp seed oil helps the skin stay more moisturised, containing a high concentration of essential fatty acids, vitamin E and amino acids. These compounds give this oil both soothing and antioxidant properties which can assist in the natural repair of the skin’s barrier, making it stronger and better at retaining valuable moisture.
Certified Organic Peppermint Oil helps to repair cracked lips, and this is the reason why this oil is an active ingredient in chapsticks and lip glosses. The oil has a soothing effect (because of menthol that's present in it), and so can be used on chapped lips as it will give a cooling and refreshing effect on the skin.
Instead of using potentially hazardous preservatives in their lip balms, Seed & Sprout use tocopherol (vitamin E) to keep the formulas fresh.
