Natural Lip Gloss for Delicious Lips

natural lip gloss

Someone once said, “A mouth without lip gloss is like a cake without frosting.” There’s just something about those luscious, shiny lips! So, if you want that ‘totally kissable’ look, then I’ve got just three words for you – natural lip gloss.

Time to ditch the… petroleum???

When I was in high school, like most girls I used to keep a lip gloss in my school bag. And as soon as I left the house I would be smothering my lips in that baby. Little did I know that every time I licked that sweet-tasting gloss off my lips I was ingesting some not-so-sweet ingredients, like polybutene (a petroleum by-product refined from crude oil) and synthetic flavours and colours. I’d hate to think how much of that I licked off. And how much was floating around in my blood stream. The scary thing is some of it is probably still there, as many of these ingredients bio-accumulate in our bodies.

It’s a fact that many lip glosses contain ingredients like alcohol and petroleum that are drying to the lips so that you have to reapply them often or your lips will feel dry and cracked. I don’t want to be cynical, but it’s a great way to sell more lip gloss I guess! Then there are the parabens and phthalates, known hormone disruptors and research has even linked them to breast cancer.

It’s what you do every day that counts

However, what frightens me more is all the ads I see about lip glosses that stay on your lips all day. Sure, how amazing is it to not have to re-apply it all day? But have you stopped and asked yourself what ingredients are in it that make it last so long. And… do they have any harmful effects? I know I’m preaching here, but damn, girl! We’re using this stuff every day!

Of course, many of these brands maintain that their ingredients are ‘safe’ at the low levels they use in cosmetics. And that may be true… if you only use them once or twice.

However, a quick Google search will show you that the average woman uses 3kgs of lipstick over her lifetime. Not only is she licking most of this off, but anything that comes in contact with your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream. This adds up to a LOT of ‘safe’ (yeah right) chemicals being stored in our bodies over our lifetime. As my doctor says, “It’s not what you do once in a while that matters. It’s what you do every day.”

Bring on the natural lip gloss!

Wouldn’t you rather know that your lip gloss didn’t contain any nasties and you could happily lick away as the yummy flavour is plant based? I know I would. That’s why I love and use the Savvy Minerals by Young Living Lip Glosses.
