Ingredients Explained

Tocopherol (also known as Vitamin E) is a common antioxidant used to help protect the skin from free-radicals and strengthen the skin barrier. It's also fat soluble - this means our skin is great at absorbing it.

Vitamin E also helps keep your natural skin lipids healthy. Your lipid skin barrier naturally consists of lipids, ceramides, and fatty acids. Vitamin E offers extra protection for your skin’s lipid barrier, keeping your skin healthy and nourished.

Another benefit is a bit of UV protection. Vitamin E helps reduce the damage caused by UVB rays. (It should not replace your sunscreen). Combining it with Vitamin C can decrease sunburned cells and hyperpigmentation after UV exposure.

You might have noticed Vitamin E + C often paired together. This is because it is great at stabilizing Vitamin C. Using the two together helps increase the effectiveness of both ingredients.

There are often claims that Vitamin E can reduce/prevent scarring, but these claims haven't been confirmed by scientific research.

This is honestly my HG chapstick (me and 80% of the rest of the world) and I have to have one near me at all times.
...But I have to admit I *do* think it causes acne if it migrates away from my lips, and sometimes I even break out around my lip line.
But I literally don't care, I don't want to give up this chapstick.
I don't love the peppermint as a skincare ingredient, but it gives the illusion of fresh breath if you need it.
I've been carrying the little yellow chapstick around for 20 years at this point, I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
