I love the smell of lip balm in the winter!

Seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) is a perfect fit for lips. The light, delicate oil heals rather than just coating, and it is gentler than many preparations on the thin, sensitive skin of the mouth. Also, seabuckthorn oil is not only fine but actually indicated for broken skin, while some stronger preparations might hinder the healing of badly chapped lips rather than promoting healing as seabuckthorn does.

SBT Seabuckthorn Lip BalmOur SBT Seabuckthorn Lip Lover’s products make excellent use of the healing benefits of seabuckthorn, adding only the fewest, simplest ingredients necessary to help the oil cling to your lips while it does its work. Natural beeswax is a thickener to keep the oils stable, hemp seed oil adds to the nutritional profile, shea butter lends an extra smoothness and gloss, and Vitamin E gives that extra bit of nutritional ‘oomph!’. The balm and gloss are odourless, never dry out, and last well. The seabuckthorn oils lend a gentle golden colour to the preparations, which are great to apply under lipstick, or add a subtle sheen to your lips all by themselves.

I used to have a perennial problem with chapped lips (summer and winter), which was kept under moderate control by the constant use of various products, but it was never completely solved. Since I’ve been using my seabuckthorn lip balm, I never even think about chapped lips – it’s practically not in my vocabulary any more. As soon as my lips begin to get dry, I just slap on a bit of balm (I don’t even use it that regularly), and the damage is gone in hours. My lips never get to the point they used to, where the dry edges of cracked skin irritated me so much that I’d peel them off with my teeth without even thinking about it, and end up with red welts on my mouth. Uuurgh!! *shivers*

But I was reminded just recently of an occasional use I put my seabuckthorn lip balm to last winter – soothing my tissue-abused nose during a cold. I can remember in years past unscrewing my tube of Chapstick and rolling it all over my nostrils, trying to soothe the pain, to little avail. The seabuckthorn lip balm is so much better – not only because it doesn’t contain any strong ingredients to irritate, but also because of its mild analgesic qualities. SBT Seabuckthorn Lip Balm is moving on up! Next stop…?
