Why Switch to Natural Lip Balm

Why Switch to Natural Lip Balm


Cold weather, sunburn and habitual licking of your lips can cause recurrent chapping. If you have persistent chapping during colder months, it might be difficult for you to imagine having soft lips all year long. The reality is that you can heal your lips. Natural lip balm seals the moisture in and keeps your lips feeling their best, no matter the season.

Drop those standard lip balms, full of synthetic ingredients and try something that will make your lips happy.

Natural Lip Balm Explained

Natural lip balm is an alternative to the traditional lip balm filled with synthetic ingredients. It is safe, healthy and nourishing for your lips. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, along with coconut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter, you don’t have to worry about synthetic ingredients or fragrances irritating your skin.

With the use of natural flavors, natural lip balms also smell and taste better! Everyone’s had an experience with bad-tasting lip salve before. Natural flavors do not taste synthetic or like bad medicine.  

Dangers of Standard Lip Balm

People who use standard lip balms sometimes mistake different sensations as the product working you could just be irritating your lips. For example, lip balms that include fragrance or propyl gallate can potentially burn or irritate your skin.

Many standard lip balms contain parabens and synthetic colors. Parabens are cheap preservatives that can interfere with your hormone function. Synthetic colors and dyes such as FD&C Blue 1, Yellow 5 and Red 33 deposit toxins on your skin.

Fragrances are also common in standard lip balms. Companies get away with not listing what they use in their fragrance. Under the FDA, you can include most ingredients under fragrance without listing them.

Benefits of Natural Lip Balm

There are reasons people seek out natural products over their synthetic counterparts. Like many products, natural lip balm is eco-friendly and cruelty-free.


When you choose traditional lip balm, there is a risk that the ingredients in one stick of balm could be harmful to the environment. If not, the way that the lip balm was manufactured could have harmed the Earth. 

Our organic lip balms are designed with the environment in mind. You should not have to negatively impact the environment to care for your lips.


We don’t support animal abuse of any kind. Most organic lip balms are also cruelty-free. The balms are not derived from animals and are never tested on animals. To be sure that the products you use are cruelty-free, look for the cruelty-free bunny logo.

Natural Lip Balm Is Better

By using shea butter, cocoa butter and organic virgin coconut oil, our lip balms not only moisturize your lips but seal in the moisture and protect them from the sun. Forget the irritation of traditional lip treatments.

Standard lip balms may contain artificial ingredients, including fragrance, parabens and more. All these ingredients can cause adverse health effects and irritation. At Treat, we care about providing you with high-quality, safe natural lip balm. Treat yourself today!
