What’s in This Shea Butter Lip Balm Recipe?

Shea Butter

Shea butter has become a go-to ingredient for anyone seeking moisturized, kissable lips! It is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids which can help to nourish and repair the delicate skin on your lips. Moreover, its emollient and healing properties make it an ideal choice for those with dry, cracked, or chapped lips. And the best part? Shea butter’s superior ability to lock in moisture means that your lips will stay hydrated for hours after application. 

Coconut Oil (Solid)

This rejuvenating balm is infused with a variety of nourishing ingredients, including the ever-popular Coconut Oil. With its natural antibacterial properties and moisturizing benefits, coconut oil is the perfect addition to any lip balm. Not only does it provide a smooth texture, but it also locks in moisture to prevent chapped lips.

Almond Oil

Bergamot Kiss Shea Butter Lip Balm incorporates this ingredient to give your lips the ultimate hydration they need. Almond Oil is known for its ability to soothe dry, chapped lips and lock in moisture. It’s packed with antioxidants and vitamins, making it a powerful ingredient to boost your lip health.


The secret to this recipe’s irresistible texture and long-lasting formula lies in the use of one key ingredient – Beeswax. This natural ingredient helps to seal in moisture and protect your lips from harsh environmental elements, while also providing a smooth application. As a plus, this recipe is formulated with sustainable, ethically sourced beeswax ensuring that it is not only good for you but also good for the environment.

Bergamot Essential Oil

One ingredient that stands out in this recipe is Bergamot Essential Oil. Not only does this oil provide a refreshing citrus scent, but it also has uplifting properties that can boost your mood and help soothe stress. Furthermore, Bergamot Essential Oil has been shown to help balance cravings, making this lip balm a great option for those on a health journey.
