In winter, we blame extreme temperatures and the dryness of our homes. In summer, the burning sun is the guilty one … or maybe the freezing breeze from air-conditioned spaces? Wait, no! Isn’t that bad cold who’s responsible? Yup. Whatever the season, your lips are chapped, cracked and sore and are always the first part of your body to scream out for help. What makes them so fragile and let’s face it, unable to put up with any kind of weather? The truth is, the skin on your lips is thinner than almost anywhere else on your body, offering very minimal protection. Furthermore, lips have no sweat or oil glands, which basically mean they are pretty helpless when it comes to staying hydrated. Your lips are delicate, and only some of your TLC can save them!
Discover the Chanv Lip Balm
Don’t wait until your lips are dried out to give them some attention. As our grandmas always said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Applying lip balm daily can really make a difference in keeping your lips healthy and smooth. Unfortunately, many products out there are packed with toxic ingredients. Considering the risk of swallowing some of it by mistake when you put it on your lips, who would want to take such a chance! Not, you, we totally get that. Thankfully, the Chanv Lip Balm is made with the most natural ingredients possible. You can use it every day without having to worry about it being unsafe. That’s something to smile about isn’t?
The Benefits of Hemp Oil
Amongst the key ingredients of this lip balm, you’ll find the unbeatable hemp oil, the star ingredient behind the Chanv body care line. The oil used in all Chanv products comes from hemp seeds that are grown and transformed locally, here in Québec. This ingredient is, according to research, the most complete plant-based oil out there. With its ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6, its profile is close to the natural lipids found in the skin, making it a quick-penetrating dry oil. It promotes moisture retention and brings essential elements to your skin. What does it do for your lips? It moisturizes, soothes and heals. Wait, there’s more. If you are used to having to apply lip balm multiple times a day, you can say goodbye to that habit since it offers a long-lasting protection against the elements.
Star Ingredient: Shea Butter
Shea Butter, despite its name, has nothing to do with what you spread on your morning toast, except maybe for its rich buttery colour. In fact, Shea butter is extracted from the fruit of an African tree, the Shea tree. Its amazing properties make it a very popular ingredient in cosmetics. It is said that it has the power to heal, hydrate, nourish, soothe, regenerate, and protect against dryness. It even helps in maintaining skin’s elasticity. With all these qualities, it isn’t surprising that it means “life” in some languages! It literally brings your skin and lips … back to life! That’s probably why it shares the spotlight with hemp oil and mint leaf oil in our famous lip balm.
Essential Oils to the Rescue
Mentha Arvenis Leaf oil is one of the spectacular ingredients in the Chanv lip balm. It leaves behind a refreshing scent and feeling and it soothes itchiness and irritations. It’s also a natural antiseptic, perfect to heal wounds and small crevasses on your lips, two familiar issues when winter comes around. This amazing ingredient also reduces inflammation and pain. Since your lips are one of the most sensitive parts of your body, it’s reassuring to know that mint leaf is there when you need some relief!
Perfection in a Tube
No GMOs, phthalates or paraben, vegan and cruelty-free. The lip balm, like all Chanv products, does the job without causing harm to your health or planet Earth. It provides long-lasting relief without the use of toxic ingredients. Used to prevent chapped lips or to repair unwanted damage to that great smile of yours, it has everything to keep you happy and smiling, rain or shine. That’s why we call it perfection in a tube.
