The beeswax in Mountain Sky lip balms essentially creates a protective barrier that prevents your lip moisture from escaping. Normally moisture evaporates through the surface of your lips, especially on dry, cold, windy days, or sunny summer days.
To prevent chapped lips:
1. Do not excessively lick your lips. Added sweeteners to lip balms cause people to lick their lips more which can add to the problem of chapped lips. Mountain Sky does not add any sweeteners to our lip balms.
2. Essential oils such as camphor, lavender and mint can dry lips and cause cracking. Mountain Sky only uses natural flavors that do not cause cracking or lip irritation. We do not add essential oils in our lip balms, as essential oils can dry your lips.
We have carefully formulated our lip balm ingredients to act as a protector and softener for your lips.
We add the following ingredients that we believe can naturally protect your lips from harsh environmental exposures.
