When you're shopping for makeup, several factors can sway your purchasing decisions: the shade, the price, if you'll actually use it — the list goes on. Whether or not the ingredients are safe to ingest, however, may not be one of your main criteria. But when you're shopping for lip balms, glosses, and beyond, it should be. Enter clean lip products.
Over the years, various facts and figures have been tossed around claiming that lipstick wearers "eat" a certain number of the product per year or in their lifetimes. While the exact number remains unconfirmed, there's no denying that at least some of the product you apply to your lips ends up being consumed. So with that in mind, you probably want the formulas to be as natural and nontoxic as possible. We're right there with you.
With a recent (and much-needed) surge in clean beauty, lip products are the perfect category to begin overhauling your makeup bag with. Ahead, we've rounded up 15 of our favorites to get you started. Just scroll to shop.
