Mango butter lip balm

Mango butter lip balm

A balm to be used at will in winter, when the lips are particularly sensitive to the cold and can become really uncomfortable.

Ingredients for 15 ml (3 lip sticks)

  • 3 g mango butter
  • 2 g shea butter
  • 1 g cocoa butter
  • 3 ml apricot kernel oil
  • 2 ml rosehip oil
  • 1 g white beeswax
