When was the last time you read a label on a product you use often? If you haven’t done it in a while, you should.
Even products that you think are better for you often contain mystery ingredients. Why? If something is suppose to be natural you should understand what the ingredients are.
Admittedly, some ingredients are written in their scientific terms. That might make them look like they are a synthetic and/or man-made ingredient when it’s really not. For example – butyrospermum parkii is another name for Shea Butter and rubus idaeus is another name for raspberry.
I think these natural ingredients should be listed using words we are familiar with (such as shea butter). I’m just saying…
I try and use the most natural products possible – both on my person (bath and body products) and at home (cleaning products, the foods that we eat…). It’s not always easy, but I do try and read labels and make better choices for me and my family.
One of our favorite brands, ChapStick, has a line of natural lip butters worth checking out.
We’re long time fans of ChapStick. I’ve been using the lip balms since I was a young girl. My husband too. In fact, my husband is NEVER (and I do mean that literally) without Cherry ChapStick. For Christmas I usually stuff his stocking with Cherry ChapStick – enough to last him an entire year (or more). It might sound like a lame gift idea, but he loves it. He keeps one in his pocket, in his wardrobe, in his car and at his desk at work. That’s the reason why he has such soft, kissable lips.
ChapStick sent me some of their all natural lip butters to try out for myself, as well as some “sweet” treats in the form of fresh fruit. Just like ChapStick’s 100% Natural Lip Butters , fresh fruit is also all natural.
If you follow me on Instagram (SheScribes) you might have seen the photo I took of one of the ChapStick All Natural Lip Butters with some farm fresh blueberries.
Sadly, I can’t find the photo I snapped of a ChapStick’s 100% Natural Lip Butters with some AMAZING cherries from The Fruit Company. For the life of me I can’t find it and I know I have it on my computer somewhere.
ChapStick’s 100% Natural Lip Butters are made from ingredients that most people can understand (and appreciate).
Take for example the Green Mint Tea variety. Here is the product label.
As you can see, it’s made with a lot of natural ingredients (given in their scientific names). There are a few ingredients I don’t really understand (tocopheryl acetate) but I looked it up. It’s another name for Vitamin E.
I think it would be easier for things to be written in the common names we know they by.
ChapStick’s 100% Natural Lip Butters are available in three different flavor/varieties – Green Tea Mint, Pink Grapefruit and Sweet Papaya. Pink Grapefruit it my favorite.
The lip butters have a nice, mild taste to them. They are not overly sweet or candy like. I’m not a fan of candy like lip products. I don’t like having that taste on my lips all day long. I like the more natural, subtle taste of these lip butters.
The lip butters work wonderfully. They keep your lips soft, smooth and hydrated.
With the cooler weather upon us, my skin tends to try out very bad. My lips will split and crack open when they get too dry (especially the corners of my lips/mouth). That is why is super important for me to keep products on hand that I can use to prevent that from happening. ChapStick’s 100% Natural Lip Butters are a great choice.
