Why Natural Organic Lips Balms Are So Beneficial

When it comes to skincare, nothing beats organic. Whether it’s face cream, moisturiser or lip balm, organic products are usually much kinder to the skin and produce better results.

Here we’ll touch on the ingredients you can expect to find in an organic lip balm, how they improve the skin and why in most cases organic beats non-organic hands down!

What Ingredients Are Found In natural & organic Lip Balms?

In truth, the ingredients found in an organic lip balm may differ from one brand to the next so it’s pretty much impossible to cover them all! However, these are the ingredients we use in our lip balms, to give you an idea of what you can expect to find.

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is one of the most commonly-found ingredients in organic lip balms, and for good reason. Derived from cocoa beans, this nutrient-packed butter is rich in antioxidants and has incredible moisturising properties

By forming a protective barrier on your lips, cocoa butter will prevent moisture loss and keep them soft and supple. Cocoa butter also has a subtly sweet taste which makes it perfect for applying to the lips! 


Calendula is another ingredient that’s known for its skin-soothing benefits. A flowering plant that’s native to the Mediterranean region, calendula has been used for its medicinal and cosmetic properties for centuries.

This ingredient is used in lip balms as it helps alleviate chapped and irritated lips, making it an ideal choice for sensitive skin.

Kokum Butter

Derived from the seeds of the kokum tree, kokum butter is a natural emollient that’s not only an excellent moisturiser but is also loaded with essential fatty acids. It's an exceptional 

Kokum butter hydrates and rejuvenates dry and damaged lips, helping lock in moisture and preventing your lips from drying out in harsh weather conditions, making it perfect for applying in winter.


Avocado oil is a nutrient-rich oil that’s prized for its ability to provide nourishment to the skin on our lips. 

Avocado oil contains vitamins, essential fatty acids and bucket-loads of antioxidants that promote overall lip health and help shield your lips from harmful UV rays. This makes it a great choice for those hot sunny days!

Why Choose Natural Lip Balms 

If you’re on the lookout for a lip balm, there are a number of reasons why organic options are usually the best.

Firstly, natural organic lip balms are free from synthetic chemicals and artificial additives that may harm your lips in the long run. By choosing organic, you protect your lips from unnecessary exposure to toxins and irritants.

If you’re concerned about GMO ingredients, organic products side step these so you can use your lip balm safe in the knowledge you're avoiding the potential risk associated with genetically modified crops.

As well as being kinder to the skin, organic lip balms are often crafted with sustainability in mind. The cultivation of organic ingredients typically involves eco-friendly practices that make them gentler on the environment, as well as on your lips!

When you opt for one of the organic lip balm brands, these are more likely to adhere to cruelty-free principles. Having said that, this isn’t always the case, so be sure to check their credentials if this is important to you as, sadly, simply having the word “organic” doesn’t always mean the products are cruelty-free.

So that’s how an organic lip balm can be beneficial for the skin. If you’re keen to try one for yourself, we have a range of options to choose from. All of our natural balms are made with the ingredients listed above, and you can be sure they contain no animal products and none of them are tested on animals.
