This wonderful herb has been macerated in Sunflower oil for many weeks to extract its healing and soothing properties. Calendula officinalis, commonly known as pot marigold, is considered a mainstay in herbal medicine for the treatment of inflammation, to speed skin repair and as an antiseptic. Calendula's powers aren’t just folklore. It contains an array of constituents that work together to create a potent healing remedy, one being salicylic acid, which is an anti-inflammatory that encourages tissue repair. You will often find this magical herb in lip care products due to these gentle yet potent restorative properties.
Nicknamed the liquid gold of skincare. Rosehip seed oil is widely known for its anti-aging properties as it has been clinically tested and shown to help minimise the appearance of scars and fine lines. Rosehip seed oil is high in Retinoic acid, a pro-vitamin A, which your body turns into retinol, which is widely known for it's highly powerful skin renewal properties. This magical oil is very moisturising, light, non-greasy and full of antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids that help to heal, nourish and protect the lips, making it a perfect ally for soothing dry chapped lips.
Lovely, light sunflower seed oil has excellent emollient properties that help lips retain their moisture. It is high in Retinoic acid and Vitamin E (the highest amount on vitamin E than any other oil!), both these constituents act as anti-oxidants and help to regenerate damaged skin cells. It is also high in omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acid, which enhances skin barrier repair.
Mandarin essential oil is a fruity, warming and sweet scent and is considered to be very calming and uplifting.
We have used unrefined beeswax sourced locally, from a small-scale beekeeper, in our home county of Essex. Our supplier is so local we collect the wax straight from her house! We carefully consider every ingredient for our products and feel more comfortable using beeswax from local, reputable source rather than shipping plant based waxes from different parts of the world. Beeswax is a byproduct and when sourced locally it has a lot smaller carbon footprint than a lot of the alternatives. We think it is important to support local 'beecentric' beekeepers, that love and care for their bees and put them first. We also believe it is a superior ingredient as it is naturally antibacterial and creates a protective barrier on the skin which in turn helps aid skin repair.
Massage a thin layer of salve directly onto the lips to help soothe, soften and protect.
