Do You Know What Is In Your Lip Balm?

I'm super excited to let you all know that medik8 has released their first ever lip balm. They have named this new and advanced product “Munity.” Munity does not rely on petroleum as a base, like a majority of lip balms. Medik8 have worked to create a lip balm that is petroleum free by replacing the main ingredient with squalene. Squalene helps to balance oil production, providing just enough moisture to the lips. Its powerful anti-aging properties will also help the skin age gracefully as well as providing anti-inflammatory benefits to help with skin conditions or compromised lips. Did you know that … 

Petroleum jelly can cause skin congestion, so you must be careful with it getting on the skin tissue around the lips. 

Petroleum works by creating a protective barrier between your skin and the elements. It helps to seal the moisture in but acts as a barrier to stop moisture from getting out. This means moisture from the air can’t get in so your lips can become dry and take longer to heal. Therefore, it is good temporary fix but doesn’t help to improve the texture of the lips long-term.   

This is where Medik8’s NEW Alternative Lip Balm comes in … 

Its Squalene based!

As you apply this product to your lips, the balm like texture slowly melts into an oil, providing antioxidant protection, anti-inflammatory benefits and anti-aging properties keeping the lips looking healthy and hydrated. 

The 3 main active ingredients you will see is, Sea Buckthorn Oil, which contains anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Hyaluronic Acid, which holds 1000 times its own weight in water, providing ultimate hydration and Glycerin, which is natural humectant as draws moisturise from the atmosphere to hydrate the lips.

You will also love the smell of the refreshing scents from the Lemongrass oil, which helps to fight off free radicals that damage our cells and helps to soothes our lips. Spearmint leaf oil which has a relaxing scent and contains anti-fungal properties and the Mandarin peel oil that has antiseptic benefits which is ideal for any cuts and bruises but also helps improve circulation in the lips. 

We can’t wait for you to try medik8s NEW lip balm, as it slowly melts away onto your lips!
