Your lips deserve to be pampered with naturally softening products too! As with all of our products, we use the best plant-derived oils and butters to help solve the worst of your lip problems! Our Lip Balms are not water-based, so they will not dry out your lips. They contain NO animal products-if you are allergic to wool and didn't know lanolin is made from sheep wool, you would be causing more harm than good using products labeled natural that contain lanolin!! They help soothe chapped lips and are sweetened with diabetic-friendly, naturally no-calorie stevia! Your Lip Balm will melt if left in a hot place too long. Try to avoid leaving them in your vehicle, but if they do melt, simply place in a cool place or in the refrigerator until solidified.
