The skin on our lips is not like the skin on our hands, legs, arms, back and stomach. It doesn’t have that extra layer of protection. Even though our lips are on the outside of our body they are a lot more like skin on the inside, so we need to make sure we nourish them, especially if we spend a lot of time in the sun or in artificial cooling and heating.
Essentially Audrey Lip Balm was designed because I (Angela, owner and maker) have terrible lips. I think I destroyed them during the glitter Lip Smacker era in the late 90s. After years of needing everything from prescription lip care, I developed this recipe to help my lips without all of the nasties.
Nourishing ingredients like Shea Butter that gives a nourishing coating to your lips, coconut oil to assist with absorption and candelilla wax to ensure it sticks around on your lips and gives them that beautiful shine. This is an all-natural, plant based, vegan formula that will suit any lip type. With three different flavours, repairing (the original for those in need of some lovin’), peppermint and the new kid on the block green mandarin.
For those of you in the know, that may be concerned about citrus and the sun, do not despair! Green mandarin is the only citrus oil that does not make your skin more photosensitive. Because green mandarin is from the immature unripened fruit, it doesn’t cause the same issues with the sun as it’s fully ripened sister does (red mandarin). So enjoy 🙂
