Have you heard about clean beauty? Other names – some with slightly different definitions – include eco-beauty, sustainable, or green beauty products. Essentially, the products are void of toxins, fillers, harmful chemicals, or any other ingredients that don’t have the health of the consumer and planet as a top priority. Many clean beauty products also aren’t tested on animals and may be vegan, but be sure to double-check ingredient lists and look for the “Beauty Without Bunnies” stamp on the label if this is important to you. Switching to clean beauty products, or at least starting to incorporate some into your beauty regime, is good for you, others, and the planet and all its creatures. There are quite a few options in the market for clean lip products, so why not start there and give clean beauty a chance?
Balm: Lipfuel by Kosas
Lipfuel is ultra-hydrating and perfect whether you’re in a dry office or hitting the slopes. One of the main ingredients is hyaluronic acid – a substance your body makes naturally – to help your lips retain moisture. Konjac root is used to create a gel-like barrier that locks in moisture, while other ingredients like vitamin E help nourish and soothe lips, no matter the weather. This balm comes in clear as well as two pink-tinted options. It’s also gluten-free, so those who are celiac or have sensitivities to gluten can safely use this balm.
