It’s crazy to think that one women may ingest more than four pounds of lipstick in her lifetime, and that’s not even from wearing it every day!
However the bigger concern is that many mainstream lipsticks are composed of synthetic oils, petroleum waxes and artifical colours from coal tar dyes, which can cause skin irriations and allergies.
Lipsticks are also often preserved with paragons and synthetic fragrances.
So now that you know what to watch out for, what should be found within your favourite lippy is a good question.
Beeswax or olive oil is the answer, and these ingredients should be found in replacement of petroleum wax and synthetic oils.
But why is oil important?
Well, that shine and glide on application that you love about your lippy comes from its oil.
Equally botanical oils such as castor, chamomile, jojoba, olive and sunflower oils as well as Vitamin E, which protect the lips against UVA rays give them their moisture and that is why these ingredients should be found in your favourite lip products, just as they are in our own Lip Bomb Glossy Lacquer Stains.
So don’t wast any time wearing and consuming lip products that are bad for you when you can easily invest in a long lasting, vibrant and healthy lippy today!
