It’s the perfect and effortless way to add a splash of color to your beauty routine. But what really makes Lip + Cheek so good?! And is it all good for you, inside and out? Today we’re diving head first into many of the Lip + Cheek ingredients its benefits for you!! Read on to learn more about the make up of this makeup: 

Castor Seed Oil

Castor seed oil is a multi-purpose oil that people have been using for thousands of years. It’s made by extracting oil from the seeds of the ricinus communis plant. The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of castor oil are the very reason it’s used in natural makeup. Not only does it fight dry lips, soothe sunburns, and reduce puffiness, but it also works as a moisturizer that helps to reduce wrinkles! Even if you tend to have sensitive skin, castor oil has a low comedogenic score, meaning it’s unlikely to clog pores and reduces the risk of acne and blackheads. As our first listed ingredient, things are looking pretty good.

Avocado Oil

Sure avocado oil is great for cooking healthy meals, but have you tried it on your skin?! As an excellent source of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins, avocado oil is beneficial for moisturizing your skin and working as a natural sunblock! With vitamins A, D, and E in it’s content, avocado really helps to lock in moisture and protect your skin from UV rays. It also heals chapped skin, so we definitely recommend applying some to your lips in that dry heat! Even our second ingredient is giving us all the heart eyes!   

Sunflower Seed Wax

This ingredient is a vegetable wax that comes from sunflower oil and gives our Lip + Cheek the hardness consistency that can be found in lip balm. Used in other sticks and emulsions, sunflower seed wax gives natural makeup a non-sticky feel on your skin for easy and smooth application. It also adds some integrity to your stick, so it’s less likely to fall apart as you use it. Containing  vitamins A, D, and E, sunflower seed wax works as a natural exfoliant, nourishing your skin/lips so they are protected yet still smooth and soft. If you’re interested in making your own lip balm, don’t be surprised when you see this ingredient listed as a key one!      

Mango Seed Butter

As a rich natural fat, mango seed butter is the perfect emollient, highly moisturizing and very nourishing. Extracted from the seeds contained inside the pits of the mango fruit, mango seed butter contains vitamin C, which nourishes skin, brightening it, and boosts its elasticity. It also has vitamin A which helps your skin keep looking smooth, firm, and young! We knew we loved mango in general, but are thrilled to know the pit has such great benefits too!

Lip + Cheek Ingredients

Apricot Kernel Oil

This oil is quite light, has a nutty aroma, and is pressed from the seed of the apricot. It has high levels of vitamin E, vitamin K, and a number of antioxidants, which just adds to the health benefits! Although commonly used in the world of massages, in makeup this oil improves your skin tone by maintaining softness and radiance of skin. It also nourishes the skin, leaving you with treated acne and less blemishes. We’re all about that natural summer glow, so this particular ingredient can sit with us!

Orange Peel Wax

Pressed from the peels of the orange, this wax is definitely our favorite smell! {cue the citrus scent from Soarin Over California! If you know, you know!} This ingredient adds more “body” to our Lip + Cheek and has powerful skin soothing and anti-irritant properties, making it the ideal ingredient for soothing itchy or dry skin. But that’s not all! It also works for sunscreen enhancing and moisture regulation, offering double protection for the skin! It is so versatile! We knew we loved citrusy things.

Jojoba Seed Oil

Say that ten times fast! Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant, native to the American southwest, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Not only does it keep skin calm and comfortable, but jojoba seed oil reduces redness that comes from drying, chafing, and chapping. While organic, cold-pressed jojoba oil has the highest levels of nutrients, even mixed into our Lip + Cheek it nourishes and protects your skin. It can trick the skin into thinking that it’s produced enough oil so that your skin is as soft and glowing as ever without greasy residue!
