- Anti-oxidants like Vitamin E, and rosemary.
The disadvantages are:
- Has peppermint oil that can further irritate the chapped lips.
- Limonene is the fragrance that might irritate chapped lips, besides triggering an allergic reaction.
- Cannot be used by those who have soy or Peanut allergy, according to WebMD, People who are allergic to peanuts, soybeans and other plants that are members of the Fabaceae/Leguminosae family might also be allergic to soybean oil.
- The tin packing in itself is a disadvantage because you have to dig your finger into balm before application. Thus you have to make sure that your fingers are clean and dry before using this lip balm.
So what is the conclusion?
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm cannot be used for dry and chapped lips because the Peppermint oil and Limonene might irritate the chapped lips further. It is recommended for regular use during winter for prevention of dry and chapped lips. However, this product does not offer sun protection.
