Ingredient Purpose
Helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil The organic sunflower oil in Juteux is a natural and very healthy way to produce moisturizing emollients for lips. … While helping to smooth and prevent wrinkles on lips. At the same time antioxidant properties of organic sunflower oil can help in preventing premature signs of aging.
 Cera alba (beeswax, cire d’abeille) Beeswax is perhaps the most essential ingredient in our lip balms. This is because it contains natural moisturizers that lock in moisture from the air and help keep the skin looking firm and plump.
Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil The primary benefit of coconut oil is its moisturizing effects. This makes it ideal for chapped lips. Your lips are particularly sensitive to moisture loss because the skin is thin, and they’re exposed to the elements more so than other parts of your skin.
Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil Castor oil is commonly used as an ingredient in skin care products, including lip balms and lipsticks. It’s rich in the monounsaturated fatty acid ricinoleic acid, a known humectant. Because of these qualities, castor oil can be applied to lips and skin, either on its own or as an ingredient, to promote hydration.
lanolin Lanolin is a waxy substance that is secreted by the oil glands of sheep, like this fella below. It is used in lip balms such as the cult favorite Lanolins because of its highly emollient properties and ability to prevent water loss. For those who aren’t sensitive, lanolin can be great.
Aroma (flavor)* The majority of fragrances in Burt’s Bees products are natural, composed of proprietary blends of essential oils and natural extracts. Some of our heritage and other products contain partially synthetic fragrances.
 Punica granatum (pomegranate) seed oil Pomegranate seed oil may be especially helpful for those who suffer from acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
tocopherol Its powerful antioxidant abilities make it a favorite ingredient for soothing inflammation and redness, whether as part of a soothing lip balm or a hydrating hand cream.
officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract The tingly sensation of the classic, peppermint-infused Beeswax Lip Balm was unlike anything I had tried before, and immediately I was hooked. Speaking of peppermint, the original flavor basically acts as a breath mint (not the edible kind, of course).
Glycine soja (soybean) oil While Huda Beauty utilizes soybean oil in their lip gloss, soybean oil can be found in a variety of other products, such as skin cleansers, eye makeup and suntan products.
Canola oil (huile de colza) Although natural brand, Burt’s Bees, is currently home to the world’s biggest selling lip balm, it’s propped up by brands such as Carmex, Blistex and Chapstick, all of which rely on ingredients such as petroleum jelly. … Made from 100 per cent pure petroleum jelly, one pot is sold every 39 seconds worldwide.
 carmine We use carmine in some Burt’s Bees lip products because it is a natural alternative to synthetic colorants, which can be derived from non-renewable fossil fuels. Carmine is a natural extract that has been used since Ancient Egyptian times for its red pigment.
Benzyl salicylate Benzyl salicylate is often used as a fragrance enhancer or fragrance fixative and as such has no direct beneficial impact on the skin. However, when applied topically, benzyl salicylate can cause negative reactions, even in small amounts can cause an allergic skin reaction2
cinnamal This is the first Burt’s Bees lip balm I’ve ever owned, and it’s pretty satisfactory. It’s hydrating, nourishing, and gives your lips a smooth, pink tint.
citral Nourishes lips and delights the senses with a burst of sweet, tropical flavor.
eugenol Classic ChapStick has camphor, while ChapStick Medicated and Carmex have both camphor and menthol. Burt’s Bees has neither, but it does have lanolin, which can cause negative reactions in some people.
geraniol The pleasant flavor of geraniol makes it a useful ingredient for lip care products, such as lip gloss and lip balm. Geraniol can also function as an effective plant-based insect repellent. Studies have proven geraniol to be effective in repelling mosquitoes.
hydroxy citronella Hydroxy citronellal is a synthetic fragrance that is widely used in many cosmetics and hygiene products such as deodorants, soaps, antiseptics, and other household items. It has the smell of lilac, lily, and lily of the valley.
