3 Ingredients to Avoid in Lip Balms and Chapstick

  1. Alcohol is a drying ingredient…I have zero clue why it would be in a lip balm.
  2. Peppermint and Menthol feel great, but they will dry your lips out.
  3. Salicylic acid is a great exfoliant prior to applying your lip balm, but not great for hydrating and healing.
