If you are looking for a 100% natural lip balm, then take a look at our list of the best ones below. The reason that we wanted to compile this list is because we have heard from customers how hard it is to find a 100% natural lip balm. This surprised us, as being natural skincare experts, we know that a lip balm is one of the easiest products to make with a completely natural formula.
We have only included 100% natural lip balms in our list, and they are also all petrolatum free. The reason that there is no need to ever have a lip balm that is not 100% natural, is because they do not need to contain water in the formula. This means that they do not need any ingredients to bind the oil and water together to make the thicker consistency, like a cream would. As they do not contain water there is no requirement for a preservative, as it is the water in a cosmetic product that needs preserving. Importantly though, not all natural lip balms are created equally, as there is a huge variation in the quality of natural ingredients, and this includes oils and butters. Some natural ingredients like coconut oil are very cheap, and although coconuts are great for us, coconut oil in skincare can be fatty, greasy and pore clogging.
Just to mention that these lip balms are great to help general common lip issues, like cracking and dryness. But for any actual lip conditions please seek medical advice.
This award-winning lip balm is a sublime treat for lips, even very dry lips. It conditions, plumps, and heals lips with a special blend of the best plant butters and oils that boost with vitamins, nourishment and care. The formula includes shea butter which is rich in oleic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid and palmitic acid. The baobab and argan oil offer superb moisture plus lip loving nutrients and antioxidants, without being greasy. Argan oil is rich in vitamin E to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals, and it also natural includes CoQ10 and plant sterols. Lips are further treated to omega fatty acids and beta carotenes from the baobab oil and an uplift to circulation from the mint, for the ultimate caring lip smoothing plumping formula. This 100% natural lip balm is also cruelty free and made in the UK.
Henne Organics Luxury Lip Balm £19
Although this lip balm is small at only 10ml, it is an expensive option, but described as everyday luxury. It contains everyday ingredients like coconut oil, avocado oil and cocoa butter. It has good reviews, is organic and 100% natural. They say that it nourishes, protects and soothes lips and ensures that only the very best touches lips.
Haeckels Natural Lip Balm £16
This lip balm is described as natural nourishment for lips and a protective formula to help soften dry lips. As with all our lip balms in this list, it contains no silicone or paraffin. Instead the ingredients include beeswax, sunflower oil, seaweed, carrot oil and shea butter.
Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Lip Conditioner £12
The first thing that we should say about this lip balm is that although it is nice and 100% natural, it is on the small side and only 4g. So, the price per ml/g is very high. As the name suggests it contains kiwi oil as well as avocado oil, to condition and defend against seasonal temperature changes and environmental aggressors to promote smooth, supple lips with a plumped appearance. Kiwi oil is said to help skin conditions such as eczema, which can affect lips.
Living Nature Lip Balm £12
This again is quite small at only 10ml, however, is made by a good ethical brand that is from New Zealand, and they base all their products on manuka honey. It also contains castor oil and calendula, so it is soothing to lips and has a glossy finish. Manuka honey is really healing and is made by bees that pollinate the Manuka flower, which is native to New Zealand. It is antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, so these properties make it a good option if your lips are sore and cut.
