A Special Note on the Ingredients

We've carefully picked each ingredient in Honu Lani's Shea Butter Lip Balm to come up with the perfect fusion to retain the natural healing and protective properties of organic unrefined shea butter and incorporating our love of Hawaii by using the flavors of the Hawaiian islands.

In three 'ono blends: Liliko'i, Hawaiian Vanilla, and Haupia (Coconut).

organic unrefined shea butter:

Shea Butter has been used for centuries in Africa to moisturize and protect the skin from sun, wind, heat and salt water. Like many things, there are different kinds of shea butter. Honu Lani uses unrefined organic shea butter which is regarded as the most effective skin moisturizer and conditioner because of its high content of non-saponifiable fats, including vitamin F, and displays a protecting role against UV rays because of its content in cinnamic acid.

The pure natural formula of unrefined shea butter helps prevent and protect dry skin providing temporal relief from irritation, dryness and wind burned skin. It also helps cell regeneration and capillary circulation which favors the healing of small wounds, skin cracks and crevices, and skin ulcers.

Once natural raw shea butter has been through the refining process it looses most of these wonderful healing properties. Honu Lani lip balm has the best of both worlds, unrefined and organic.

beeswax:

Beeswax acts as a barrier that helps to seal in moisture as well as to keep the product texture consistent.

sweet almond oil:

Sweet Almond Oil provides essential fatty acids as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E that help to repair the skin's moisture barrier, thus helping to restore moisture, smoothness and suppleness. It is not greasy and therefore can be absorbed quickly. It's a great emollient for softening and conditioning the skin.

vitamin E:

Vitamin E conditions, nourishes, and protects the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and healthy. It's also a natural preservative!
