Clean Lipsticks, Glosses, and Balms to Keep your Kisses Non-Toxic this Valentine's Day
Updated: Feb 19, 2019
Let's keep our kisses non-toxic, people.
Beauty fact: Keeping lips smooth, hydrated, plump, and kissable is no easy feat. But the toxins in our beauty products give us all something else to really pout about. Since our kisses end up on those we love the most, here is a clean lip edit to keep your kissers clean from here on out.
Lip products, which we ingest, swallow, and re-apply, highlight the importance of making clean beauty choices. Whenever we use beauty products that aren't "clean" — the ones with traces of formaldehyde, carcinogens, parabens, and more — we are absorbing health-harming substances right through the skin.
The good news is that non-toxic lip treatments, serums, balms, and cosmetics — some of which treat and beautify — are already available. Whether you're in need of exfoliation, hydration, rejuvenation, or augmentation, there is a non-toxic solution for you that will not disappoint.
Remember: Petrolatum, mineral oil, and other occlusive ingredients in lip products will not heal dry, flaking, or chapped lips. However, they do make great "top coats" for locking in oils, emulsions, and skin-nourishing ingredients.
Below, shop a few of my favorite non-toxic lipsticks, glosses, balms, and treatments that I find pout-perfect. For more inspiration, check out my post on the best winter lippies for Brit + Co. here.
