Artificial lip balms can include numerous man-made preservatives to make them last longer. Unfortunately, some of these artificial ingredients might be harmful to more sensitive customers. In order to appeal to these sensitive customers, “Hypoallergenic,” “Organic” and “Natural” lip balms have arisen.
Advanced brands are realizing that some of their customers have very sensitive allergies. The “hypoallergenic” lip balm is likely to have ingredients which are less likely to react with your skin. Common allergens include milk, eggs, gluten, nuts and alcohol.
Each nation is different, so the definition of the term “natural” in the beauty industry can vary. In Brasil, “natural” cosmetics might only mean that 5% organic ingredients are used. These organic ingredients might include beeswax, carnauba wax, castor oil, cocoa butter and paraffin – all of which are moisturizing. The University of Sao Paulo noted that Benzoic Acid is a natural preservative and Vitamin E is an antioxidant, popular in lip balms.
Healthy consumers are turning to organic products. The term “organic” means “of living matter.” Thus, organic lip balms do not contain artificial preservatives. During the growing process, pesticides are not used for organic lip balms. In Brasil, at least 95% of the ingredients must be organic, before a product receives this purer designation.
