This week’s answer

Farmacy’s Beeswax & Honey Butter Lip Balm is a beeswax lip balm that hydrates, conditions and provides quality hydration. This honey lip balm is formulated with the company’s blend of honey, cupuaçu and cocoa butters, as well as a blend of food oils to deeply hydrate lips.

Honey Butter Lip aims to bring suppleness to lips with moisturizing and nourishing ingredients. Use in the winter to relieve wind or cold chapped lips or use in the summer months as an extra barrier to lock in moisture after being out in the sun.

The combination of butters and oils in Honey & Beeswax Lip Balm provides natural antioxidants. Other ingredients formulated in the lip balm include vitamin E to soften dry lips, propolis and royal jelly extract to provide overall moisture retention. In addition to healing, this non-greasy beeswax lip balm fills in fine lines or wrinkles to leave lips with a smooth finish.

Along with the environmental concerns consumers might face when choosing the right product, the lip balm is paraben-free, synthetic fragrance-free, and cruelty-free. In addition to environmental concerns, the product is gluten-free.
