Coconut Oil - Why we love it for Lip Balm
Chapslifestyle.com | Chaps Lip Balm
Coconut oil is a growing staple for health conscious individuals. Health advocates and other natural-based communities have been consuming this oil for ages due to its natural benefits. Aside from being an extremely nutritious and delicious cooking oil, coconut oil has the ability to feed and moisturize the skin and lips. In fact, coconut oil is one of the main ingredients in our lip balm!
With so many health opinions out there, it is hard to know who to trust when it comes to your overall well-being. Some of the largest companies will compromise quality at the expense of their customers. At Chaps, we commit to delivering you the truth on the ingredients that we use and why. We want to be clear that we are advocates of coconut oil as it can be used as a great oil for better health.
As a stand-alone product, Coconut oil is the only moisturizer you need. Most Coconut Oils on the market will be solid below 76 degrees Fahrenheit (24 Celsius), but will begin to melt above this point. Chaps Lip Balm has coconut oil that is mixed with a plant-based wax in order to hold its form at even higher temperatures, that way it won’t melt in your pocket! Even with the plant-based wax, the Lip balm and coconut oil will begin to melt on your skin as soon as you apply it! Coconut oil will not leave a residue but a light shine on your lips that will seep into the pores of your lips and leave a deeply moisturized layer of skin.
Why protect your lips with our natural ingredients? Everyday, your face is exposed to the harsh elements of sunlight, wind, toxins/chemicals in the air and other free-radicals that can compromise the natural beauty of your skin. These harsh elements can clog your pores and have a harming effect on the outer layer of your face and lips. If sebum is trapped in your follicles, this can create a cycle that will make your skin flaky and without proper moisture. Luckily, the light texture of coconut oil acts as a master cleanser that can replenish the natural moisture of your skin! The application of coconut oil can wash away any hardened sebum, leaving your face and lips perfectly exfoliated! Be sure to apply Chaps Lip Balm daily for best results!
What if you could constantly wear a shield over your skin that protects you from germs? Well, the coconut oil in Chaps acts as a natural layer of antibacterial defense when you apply chaps lip balm. There are pathogens constantly around your face as you go about your day, and coconut oil can limit your exposure to these harmful elements. The explanation for the anti-bacterial properties of coconut oil is scientific, as we can point to the Lauric-Acid content of the natural oil to see the main benefit. Lauric Acid is a medium-chain-fatty-acid that makes up over 80% of the content in coconut oil! Learn more about our all-natural ingredients here.
NATURAL SPF PROTECTION
While not as effective as products containing heavy metals, coconut oil does offer some natural protection against ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Regular application of coconut oil on your lips with chaps lip balm can free your lips from the effects of direct sunlight. Applying generous amounts of coconut oil directly onto a burn spot or sun-damaged skin will soothe the skin and aid in an effective natural healing process. If you’re going out in the sun, always bring a tube of chaps lip balm!
PREVENT SIGNS OF AGING
If you want to prevent skin from premature aging, you should be using coconut oil and Chaps Lip Balm daily. Premature aging of the skin is caused by a number of factors. Some of the most common things that cause skin aging include UV-rays, local environmental air pollution, harsh chemicals, and facial skin injuries. As mentioned before, the skin on your face and lips is constantly exposed to these harmful elements everyday. Applying coconut oil daily to the face and lips can prevent these signs of aging! Coconut oil acts as a barrier to the harmful dust and pathogens that cross your path on the daily. When you do this, coconut oil will seal in the moisture of your face and lips while promoting the formation of collagen.
