NATURE LOVERS WELCOME BURT’S BEES 100% NATURAL ALL-WEATHER SPF 15 LIP BALM

Lips have especially thin and sensitive skin, so they’re one area that you should pay extra special attention to when it comes to the sun. And that doesn’t mean slathering thick white sunblock on your pout.

Dermatologist, Dr Leona Yip told us that there is a big void in the Australian market for lip moisturisers that incorporate a broad spectrum sunscreen. We know that sunscreen use protects against skin cancers and photoaging, and the lip is no different to the skin when it comes to reaping this benefit.

Now, you can revel in the outdoors all day long without the worry of dry or sun-scorched lips. Instead, keep lips hydrated and protected year-round with new Burt’s Bees All-Weather SPF 15 Lip Balm.

Formulated with Zinc Oxide – a physical, mineral-based sunscreen that reflects UV rays naturally – the NEW balm’s formula moisturises lips with nourishing ingredients such as Beeswax, Meadowfoam Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter and Olive Fruit Oil. Although our priority is protection, it’s never a bad idea to keep your lips nourished!

Unlike some natural SPF formulas that can produce an uncomfortable white cast on the skin, Burt’s Bees All-Weather SPF 15 Lip Balm is formulated to provide 100% natural protection without an unsightly trade-off.

Burt’s Bees All Weather SPF 15 Lip Balm will launch in November 2017 in Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Big W and selected pharmacies for $7.95.

CHEMICAL SUNSCREEN VS PHYSICAL BARRIER

By Dermatologist, Dr Leona Yip

CHEMICAL SUNSCREENS work by absorbing and converting UV radiation to another form of energy in the infrared spectrum i.e. heat, through a series of chemical reactions at the skin level.

PHYSICAL SUNSCREENS work by reflecting UV radiation so it “bounces” off the skin surface without any chemical reactions involved.

THE VERDICT Both chemical and physical suncreens work well, but chemical sunscreens may be subject to formulation instability rendering them less effective, and may cause skin irritancy in those with sensitive skin. Zinc oxide is a safe and reliable physical blocker that does not irritate the skin, and is a true broad spectrum sunscreen that protects all through the UVB to UVA1 spectrum.

Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond. The scent of a fragrance allows you to be creative and individual, to create an alter ego or choose a particular persona - you choose who you would like to be that day.
