Did you know that lips are one of the most sensitive parts of the human body?
With more than one million nerve endings residing in this exposed membrane, they are as unique as our fingerprints. Each differs in shape, size and colour.
As one of the few bodily organs that lack sweat glands and oil-producing pores, our lips are highly exposed to the elements. They rely solely on 3-6 layers of skin cells to protect itself from the cold, wind and sun.
Chapped or distressed lips not only look unsightly, they can be extremely painful.
That’s why it’s important to protect them.
Australian founded skincare brand, Clean & Pure, has developed a lip treatment remedy that merges science and nature to produce a range of all-natural balms to nourish and protect lips.
Harvesting the natural antibacterial and protective benefits of Manuka beeswax, Clean & Pure’s lip balm range also contains extra virgin olive oil – the oil derived from the first press of the olive.
These ingredients are sourced from Queensland and Victorian based olive farms and Manuka honey beehives.
The range also includes steam distilled flower and leaf extracts to provide intense nourishment of skin-loving enzymes, antioxidants and vitamins.
All locally made
This unique combination deeply hydrates, repairs and protects lips.
Their range currently includes: Vanilla, Pawpaw, Manuka Honey, Tinted Rose, Peppermint and Cocoa Butter.
All lip balms in the range contain six ingredients or less and are made locally in Queensland.
The Manuka Honey Lip Balm is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory – the ideal companion for chapped or severely distressed lips.
And the Peppermint Lip Balm not only tastes great, it also offers a host of antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits, keeping lips feeling clean and smelling fresh.
If you’re like me and spend too much time exposed to the elements – your lips need protection.
This Australian Made lip balm range is the best we’ve tried.
