Dr. Sante Lip Balms with Natural Oils

Dr. Sante Lip Balms with Natural Oils The skin of your lips is very thin and lacks sebaceous glands which produce skin oil. This means that your lips need additional hydration, lubrication, and protection from the environment. The easiest way to keep your lips soft, smooth and supple is to use a lip balm formulated with carrier oils and other natural ingredients. Check out these lip balms with natural oils produced by Dr. Sante.

The skin of your face has up to 16 layers of cells, while the skin of your lips has only three to five cellular levels. In addition, the lip skin does not have sweat glands and has very few sebaceous glands, therefore, it doesn’t have the usual protection layer of sweat and body oils. This means that the lips dry out faster and become chapped more easily when affected by external factors, such as cold temperatures, dry air, harsh winds, ultraviolet radiation, etc.

To moisturise, nourish, and protect your lips, you need to apply a lip balm. It creates a thin, occlusive layer on the lip surface, sealing moisture in the lips and protecting them from external exposure. Lip balm typically contains vegetable oil, waxes (beeswax or carnauba wax), petrolatum, or other occlusive materials to prevent moisture loss that leads to dry, chapped, flaky lips.

Ukrainian beauty brand Dr. Sante has created a collection of lip balms formulated with carrier oils, beeswax, lanolin, and vitamin E (tocopherol). Beeswax and lanolin are responsible for skin protection. They protect the lips from exposure to the harmful effects of the environment. Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a natural antioxidant that neutralises free radicals, as well as stimulates skin regeneration and renewal.

But the most important ingredients that can be found in Dr. Sante lip balms are vegetable oils. Vegetable oils, also known as carrier oils or base oils, are a rich source of fatty acids, vitamins, and other nutrients. They nourish and moisturise the lips, contribute to protection, prevent chapped and flaky skin. Dr. Sante lip balms contain argan oil, coconut oil, shea butter, mango seed butter, sunflower seed oil, and castor oil. Let’s take a closer look at them.

Argan oil is obtained from the kernels of the argan tree that only grows in Morocco. This oil is mostly used in hair care, but it is very good for skin, too. The key constituents of argan oil are oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, linolenic acid, vitamin E, and squalene. They are responsible for its moisturising, rejuvenating, regenerative, protective, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Coconut oil is extracted by cold pressing from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts. It is notable for its high saturated fat content. Coconut oil contains high amounts of lauric acid, as well as myristic acid, palmitic acid, decanoic acid, caprylic acid, and oleic acid. This oil is a great moisturiser. It makes the skin of the lips very soft and smooth, prevents dryness, flaking and cracks, and effectively locks in moisture.

Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree native to Africa. It is widely used in cosmetics as a moisturiser. Shea butter contains oleic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, linolenic acid, and arachidic acid. It stimulates skin regeneration and collagen synthesis, helps to lock in moisture, protects the skin from the environment, and has emollient and anti-inflammatory properties.

Mango seed butter (also known as mango butter or mango oil) is extracted from the stone of the mango fruit. Its key constituents are stearic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, linoleic acid, and arachidic acid. Due to its high saturated fat content, mango butter is semi-solid at room temperatures, but melts on contact with skin, making it a great ingredient in moisturising lip balms.

Castor oil is pressed from castor beans. It is unusual in that it mainly consists of ricinoleic acid that is not found in other vegetable oils. Although castor oil is mostly used in hair care, it can be found in some skincare products, including lip balms, because of its moisturising and lubricating properties.

Sunflower oil is pressed from the seeds of sunflower. It contains linoleic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid, and palmitic acid. In some countries, it is commonly used as a cooking oil. Because of its rich content of vitamin E and emollient properties, sunflower oil is also used in cosmetic formulations.

Thanks to these oils, lip balms by Dr. Sante will help to keep your lips soft, smooth and hydrated, prevent chapped and flaky lips, and protect them from the environment.
