Alder New York Lip Balm is the Best Lip Balm

Posted by on

A good lip balm should take care of the basics- hydrate, protect, and feel great. Things it shouldn’t do? Make your lips feel drier, look shiny, or use harmful ingredients- it’s sad that that even has to be said, right? Alder New York's Nourishing Lip Balm hydrates without leaving your lips looking glossy or feeling dry, using only the best natural ingredients. 

Natural Ingredients that Work

Our lip balm uses all natural ingredients that are highly effective. Beeswax, vitamin E, and jojoba oil work together to create a breathable and hydrating protective barrier for skin against the elements. 

The key here is the term breathable. Most lip balms use petrolatum or petroleum jelly as their main protective barrier. That’s an issue because petroleum is completely non-breathable. It doesn't allow your skin to pull in moisture from the environment- something your skin naturally does to keep hydrated. Manufacturers love petrolatum because it’s crazy cheap- it's a byproduct of the oil industry, made from a combination of chemicals from crude oil. But when it comes to your lips, you need semi-occlusive ingredients that both protect and allow your skin to breath.

Hydration that Lasts

If you have to reapply your lip balm five or six times a day, they made it wrong. While there isn't actually such a thing as lip balm addiction, lip balms with drying ingredients often make you think you're addicted because of how often you have to reapply.

You'll often find ingredients like menthol and camphor in other lip balms. They both make lips tingle, which some people like. Those ingredients may be fine for you in other applications, but on your sensitive lips they can cause a lot of irritation and dryness. Another harsh lip balm ingredient is salicylic acid. While salicylic acid is an excellent mild exfoliator, is not something you want to be applying to chapped lips multiple times a day, every single day. Your lips don’t need that much exfoliation!

The Best Bet Balm

We make sure our lip balm is both super hydrating and long lasting. And we avoid drying ingredients, so one swipe in the morning will get you far into your day. Long lasting, natural hydration- and that's it! There's no catch.

We're so happy to see that once you try it, you love our lip balm as much as we do.
