Lotion Stick vs. Lip Balm...what's the difference?
You may have noticed that our lip balms and lotion sticks have similar or identical ingredients lists. So what's the difference? Can a lotion stick be used as a lip balm? Is the lotion stick just a bigger version of the lip balm?
Our organic lotion sticks and lip balms each have a slightly different base formula -- lotion sticks have just a touch more cocoa butter and beeswax so the formula really sticks on and in your skin to create a protective moisture barrier that sticks on your skin, even if you're working with your hands.
The lip balms also have beeswax and cocoa butter, but just a slightly higher percentage of sunflower oil than the lotion sticks, so they glide on your lips easily without tugging on delicate facial skin.
So, yes, you can you a lotion stick as a lip balm in a pinch, but you'll notice it doesn't go on quite as smoothly.
Either way, you can feel good about putting only safe and organic ingredients on your skin and lips!
