The benefits of botanical oils for your lips

Among the star ingredients in Absolution’s skincare formulas, you’ll often find organic botanical oils. These oils have been used for centuries and they’re perfect for boosting your beauty rituals! But did you know that botanical oils are also very effective on dry and sensitive lips? Find out more about their benefits, and why we’ve used botanical oils in our vegan lip balm Le Baume.

The power of botanical oils  

Botanical oils are the most amazing beauty ingredients! Naturally rich in active ingredients, they also have an excellent affinity with the skin. They’re able to penetrate deep into skin tissues, and each one has its own specific skincare benefits.  

While botanical oils are best known for their ability to nourish the skin and improve suppleness, they do have many other properties. It’s why you’ll find botanical oils in most of our skincare products – and even in formulas designed for oily skin, as certain oils help to regulate sebum production. You’ll also find botanical oils in products for dry skin, to deliver lipids, relieve irritation, strengthen the hydrolipidic film, and provide protection.  

By giving priority to skincare products that are rich in organic botanical oils, you’re also giving priority to unprocessed, virgin, cold-pressed oils. Their color is purer and more natural, and their quality is exceptional. They don’t contain any chemical preservatives or parabens, or other potential endocrine disruptors. A formula made with organic botanical oils will not only be of a very high quality; it will also be good for your health and the environment. Botanical oils are safe for pregnant women, too – unlike some essential oils that may have contraindications.  

Absolution has always focused on finding gentle ways to make your skin more beautiful. That’s why it uses virgin botanical oils obtained by first cold pressing, to maintain the quality of their active ingredients. We’ve harnessed the effectiveness of organic plant oils in our products for the face and body, and even in our makeup range. So it’s not surprising that these oils should be the star ingredients in our vegan lip balm Le Baume, where Argan, Sesame, Shea, Jojoba, Perilla, Castor, Macadamia, Raspberry Seed, Calendula, and Rosehip oils come together to nourish and enhance your lips.

Le Baume: care for your lips with botanical oils  

Our lips are constantly exposed to the sun, wind, cold, and dry air, which can leave them feeling uncomfortable. Free from synthetic substances, Le Baume is made with a blend of clean, natural ingredients and, above all, 11 botanical oils to provide comfort and protection to your lips. In this blend you will find:

Jojoba oil: this oil improves suppleness, protects lips against dehydration, and helps to strengthen the hydrolipidic film. It leaves a dry finish with no greasy residue.    

Argan oil: rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids, it nourishes, regenerates, and restores suppleness to undernourished lips.  

Macadamia oil: repairing and soothing, it deeply nourishes and prevents skin from drying.  

Sesame Oil: rich in essential fatty acids and natural antioxidants such as vitamin E, lecithin, and sesamoline, which help protect cells from oxidation, thus delaying the effects of skin aging. It’s an excellent oil for sensitive and reactive skin in need of comfort!

Castor oil: this repairing oil is also ideal for dispersing the pigments in a natural makeup formula.  

Perilla Oil: originating from the Middle East, oil from this medicinal plant is incredibly nourishing and rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Moisturizing and reparative, it quickly soothes irritated lips and skin.

Le Baume can be used all day, every day, and in any season for visibly nourished, protected, and enhanced lips, day after day.
