Ingredients

My products are made using only the best and most natural ingredients. Each ingredient was chosen with care.

Organic unrefined virgin coconut oil
  • The fatty acids found in coconut oil have antimicrobial properties that effectively kill bacteria and fungi.
  • Studies have shown that coconut oil may relieve inflammation by improving antioxidant status and decreasing oxidative stress.
  • Coconut oil can be an effective moisturizer and aid in the treatment of dry skin and eczema.
  • Studies have shown that coconut oil may help accelerate wound healing.
  • Virgin coconut oil has higher antioxidants and is believed to be more effective than refined coconut oil at preventing oxidation and neutralizing free radicals which can damage cells and lead to inflammation.
Organic beeswax
  • Beeswax contains natural moisturizers that make it useful as a skin and lip balm — it locks in moisture and can help keep the skin firm and plump.
  • Beeswax forms a protective barrier on the skin against irritants.
  • The Mayo Clinic recommends beeswax in the winter to reduce your chances of developing chapped lips.
  • Beeswax offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits, making it potentially beneficial for treating minor skin irritations.
  • Beeswax acts as an emollient and a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin and sealing it in.
  • Beeswax also contains vitamin A, which may be beneficial in softening and rehydrating dry skin and in cell reconstruction.
  • Beeswax may have mild antibacterial properties.
Non-GMO sweet almond oil
  • Sweet almond oil contains vitamin A. The retinol in vitamin A has the ability to stimulate the production of new skin cells and smooth fine lines.
  • This oil contains vitamin E. This nutrient has antioxidant properties that may help prevent cell damage and help reduce ultraviolet (UV) damage to the skin caused by the sun.
  • It has omega-3 fatty acids which may help prevent premature aging and safeguard against sun damage.
  • Ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic practices have used almond oil for centuries to help soothe and soften dry skin and to treat minor wounds and cuts.
  • Caution: If you are allergic to nuts, you should exercise caution when using almond oil on your skin because it may contain allergens.
Natural vitamin E
  • Natural vitamin E can be found in many foods such as salmon, spinach, and sunflower seeds. It can also be produced synthetically. I use naturally derived vitamin E because it is more potent than its synthetic version.
  • Vitamin E easily absorbs into skin.
  • UV light and sun exposure reduce vitamin E levels in skin. Limited research suggests that vitamin E can prevent or reduce the formation of sunburns.
  • Vitamin E levels also decrease with age.
  • Vitamin E applied topically may help nourish and protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals.
  • Some research suggests that vitamin E supplements may promote wound healing. It is possible that topical vitamin E oil might offer similar benefits.
  • A study by the National Institutes of Health shows topical use of vitamin E reduced acute and chronic skin damage caused by UV irradiation.
  • It may be used as a moisturizer to prevent or treat dry, flaking skin.
  • It may offer temporary relief from itching caused by dry skin.
100% organic, therapeutic grade essential oil
  • Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts of almost any part of a plant, such as seeds, flowers, fruit, leaves, stems and roots, that are said to improve physical and psychological well-being.
  • Use of essential oils dates back thousands of years, when the ancient Egyptians first burned incense made from aromatic woods, herbs and spices.
  • In recent days, they have become a more natural way of dealing with conditions like anxiety and sleeplessness.
  • The oils I chose were selected for their therapeutic benefits, wonderful smell, and safety for use topically. Not all oils are safe to use on your lips. For example, lemon oil should not be used on your skin. Although it smells wonderful, the citrus amplifies the effects of the sun (phototoxic) and can cause sunburn. That’s why I recommend lemongrass if you love the smell of citrus. It has the refreshing lemon scent without the risk of sunburn.
  • The essential oils I use in my current line of natural lip balms are:
  • Lavender: calming, sleep-inducing
  • Peppermint: energy-booster, promotes focus
  • Lemongrass: encourages positivity, mood-booster
  • Vanilla: soothing, calming
  • Note: “Baby on Board” does not contain any additional scent or flavor.
