Every day, your skin is exposed to changing environments, including heat, cold, wind and air-conditioning. All of these have a drying effect which can cause your skin to lose moisture. As the skin on your lips is thin and sensitive, this can be the first area to suffer. That’s why Joe has produced a solution that’s made entirely from natural ingredients to solve the problem of dry, cracked and sore lips.
Gnarly Joe® Lip Balm works in two ways: First, the Pure Yellow Beeswax forms a protective barrier on your lips which stops damage from the elements. Second, as well as keeping harsh weather conditions out, the Beeswax seals in the natural moisturising butters and ingredients which go to work rehydrating your lips.
Organic Shea Butter is a superfood for your lips, which is extracted from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree, and is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E and F. It’s especially good at penetrating the skin (due to its Cinnamic); and it contains 60% fat, making it highly emollient. It’s this concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids that make it incredibly moisturising for your lips. Shea Butter also contains Oleic, Stearic, Palmitic and Linolenic acids, which protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying.
Cocoa Butter (or Theobroma Cacao) comes from beans which are native to Central and South America and have been used to make natural skin moisturisers for centuries, this is because once the butter is obtained from the beans, it has a smooth texture and has excellent emollient properties.
Cocoa Butter is rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B9 and vitamin E, and it's also abundant in minerals. Cocoa Butter is a perfect natural moisturising remedy for dry skin and dry, sore lips.
