Naturally Better Lip Balm®
Just think about it
If you’re putting a lip balm with artificial ingredients and chemical sunscreens onto your lips, aside from skin absorption you are also going to be inadvertently ingesting the ingredients.
When researching our new formula, we looked for one that has both a natural base formula and a natural sunscreen. There are many natural lip balms on the market, but the majority use chemical sunscreens. Others may use a natural sunscreen like Zinc Oxide, but then use a petrolatum and/or artificial base ingredients. You also find some Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide sunscreens that also have Oxybenzone and/or other chemical sunscreens mixed in. Always read the labels.
Our Product has:
No chemical sunscreens (no Oxybenzone, no Octinoxate, no Octisalate), Coral Reef Safe.
No petrolatum or petrochemicals.
No parabens. No Aluminum. Gluten free. Non-GMO.
No Artificial Colors, Flavors, or Preservatives.
No Animal Testing – We are Leaping Bunny Certified.
Manufactured in an FDA inspected and certified facility.
Each Lip Balm stick has a factory safety seal sticker for your protection.
Made in the USA.
Our SPF 15 Lip Balm with sunblock uses a premium quality formula of natural base ingredients paired with a natural zinc oxide mineral sunblock/sunscreen. And better yet, our formula uses non-nanoparticle zinc oxide which is the size you don’t have to worry about.
Only 15 made the EWG (Environmental Working Group) list of 'Lip Balms with SPF', and two are from us - Summer Lotion!

Does zinc oxide leave a white shadow?
Generally, yes, but for our formula to achieve an SPF 15 rating requires less zinc oxide in the formula, and then one particular ingredient is added especially for the zinc oxide sunblock: Polyhydroxystearic acid - which is a natural and safe ingredient which suspends and disperses the zinc oxide evenly minimizing any white shadowing effect.
The natural formula is great, but how does it look, feel, and work?
It is smooth and glides on nicely, it moisturizes, it lasts, and it is SPF tested. The light coconut aroma is pleasant but far from overwhelming. It leaves very little white shadowing from the zinc oxide. It feels good on your lips. Appearance is smooth with just a slight sheen. No glossy shine or strange colors. - Keep lip balm sticks out of direct sunlight and very high temperatures for prolonged periods of time.
What about viscosity - thickness?
The zinc oxide does make the consistency slightly thicker than a natural lip balm without zinc oxide, or a lip balm with chemical sunscreens, but it is still smooth. Never too thick, chalky, dry, or pasty. It glides on smooth at room temperature or at body/pocket temperature.
Our SPF lip balm is manufactured by a professional formulator in an FDA inspected and certified facility here in the USA. The formula is professionally SPF and Water-Resistant tested by a third-party. We could have selected any lip balm formula, and we did analyze and test many, we have chosen the best natural lip balm formula, and we now offer it to you.
Our second production run is now complete and our packaging improvements now have our latest version of SPF 15 coconut lip balm with our Summer Lotion blue color cap.
