Why Organic & Natural For Dry Lips?

People always question why I recommend natural and/or organic lip balm for dry lips. The short answer is that organic lip balms have higher quality moisturizers. Regular lip balms have ingredients such as petrolatum or wax derivatives, which are derived from petroleum (fossil fuels). Even scarier, if you wear lip balm every day you are going to eat over five pounds of it every year, just through normal use. When you wear lip balm, even if you don't intend to eat it, you are going to ingest some of it because it is on your lips. So why not use something that is truly edible and free from fossil fuel derived ingredients?

Hurraw! Organic Lip Balm Review

Hurraw! lip balm has important moisturizers like sweet almond oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, cocoa seed butter, olive oil, and natural flavorings from fruit extracts. Flavors include everything from green tea and chai spice to black cherry and orange. Their lip balms are all raw and organic, with all ingredients cold-pressed for best quality.

Hurraw! is a privately owned company, which was started by a few individuals who just wanted to craft a great lip balm for personal use. Their balms were so incredible that they became a huge hit and started their own company. Hurraw! balms can now be found in American Apparel stores across the nation. They are made in Montana, and the lip balm tubes with their unique oval shape are made in Minnesota.

I have used this lip balm since 2011 and it is great. It's never sticky or gooey, and goes on nice and smooth. Your lips will be totally restored after a day's use if your lips are mildly dry. If your lips are very damaged, you will get relief right away but it will take at least one day to heal.

What are Cold-Pressed Ingredients?

Cold-pressed ingredients are washed and pressed at room temperature, without heat or unnecessary chemical additives such as hexane to draw out the oils. Since all Hurraw! ingredients are organic, there is no need to process them with chemical additives, which are typically used to remove insecticides that were used to grow the ingredients.

Cold-pressed ingredients retain their valuable skin-soothing properties, which is why it is so important to look for skin care products that have cold-pressed and organic ingredients. They are your best defense for dry, chapped and peeling lips!

Soaptopia Gimme Lip Balm Review

Soaptopia lip balms are handcrafted in Mar Vista, California. Their lip balms deliver all-natural tasty nutrition for your lips! Ingredients include wild crafted shea butter, cocoa butter, wild crafted beeswax, hempseed, carrot, avocado and macadamia nut oils, coconut oil, aloe vera, jojoba, Vitamin E, and real fruit extracts. It's like food for your lips!

I have been using Soaptopia lip balm for a few months now, and it is just as good as Hurraw! balm. I love the Orange and Grapefruit flavors. They make a great Coconut flavor too.

Gimme Lip also comes in a great peppermint flavor for the holidays, with fun holiday themed packaging. I especially love the extra-large lip balm tube, because it's fun. In this case, bigger is better! It's just that much easier to find it in your purse or pocket!

Dr. Bronner's Organic Lip Balm Review

Dr. Bronner's Organic Lip Balm Review

Dr. Bronner's lip balm ingredients are all organic. Their balms contain beeswax, organic jojoba oil, avocado oil, and hemp oil for great moisturization. The beeswax that is used is free from petrochemical derived ingredients, which is better for your skin.

They have four versions, including unscented lip balm (Naked), Peppermint, Orange Ginger, and Lemon Lime. For people that want unscented lip balm, Dr. Bronner's is a great choice. My favorite so far is the peppermint.

Honest Company Organic Lip Balm

Honest Company Lip Balm

Last but not least, my final favorite lip balm is Honest Company Lip Balm. It is certified organic and does not do any animal testing. It contains quality ingredients such as natural beeswax, coconut oil, vanilla oil, orange oil, olive fruit oil, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, jojoba seed oil, aloe, non-GMO vitamin E, tamanu oil, and rosehip oil.

Honest Lip Balm is a family owned business that focuses on eco-friendly, affordable products for children and their families.

Conclusion

I hope you enjoyed this list! I wholeheartedly recommend any one of these products since I have used them myself. I suffered for dry lips for a long time, not knowing which products were best. I kept buying the same stuff from drug stores but then I did a little research. I hope this article will save you time and help your lips to stay beautiful and healthy!

What is your favorite lip balm?

      I have tried so many lip balms I couldn't begin to list them all. The Somaluxe Lip Rescue beats every one hands down and I purchase this regularly - I am never without it. It is long lasting, smells good, is full of natural ingredients, your lips are left feeling smooth, moisturised and healthy for hours after application.

      Helpful list! I am going to have to check out Dr Bronner's chapstick. I think organic chapsticks like these last longer than the cheap stuff you buy at the store. Right now I am loving MoreNature's beeswax lip balm in organic citrus! My friend gave it to me as a gift and it tastes so great! http://www.morenature.com/beeswax-lip-balm.html

      interesting hub, you are right organic lip balms are far better than those derived by petroleum ones. Voted up..

      Thanks for your ideas! I read that petroleum also inhibits the skin (as well as the lips) to "breathe" as well as to release toxins. I will definitely go for a change to any things organic and natural. Up and useful. :)

      Hi carlaleon, thanks for your comment! I've looked up Buddha Balm and I will look forward to trying it next. Soaptopia is actually a locally owned shop run by the owner in Mar Vista, California, while Hurraw! is run by the owners in the small town of Whitefish, Montana. Glad to support small business whenever I can.

      You missed Buddha Balm the best lip balm I have ever used. Dr. Bronners is pretty good, but it looks like you focused on the companies with the best pr or something b/c Buddha Balm seriously puts all those to shame.
