In the tropics, where coconut is abundant, the locals commonly slather on the oil to protect themselves from the sun. Coconut oil has a natural SPF of 4. Obviously, it’s not going to protect you from a whole day in the sun but it will protect against solar radiation for brief exposures. The oil also has a soothing effect on burnt skin, reducing inflammation and pain.

Our lips lose moisture 3-10 times faster than any other body part, so we need to take extra care to lock in as much moisture as we can. If you are a lip licker (try saying that 5 times fast), or talk a lot, you dry out your lips faster.

Hibiscus has a sticky substance called mucilage which helps the plant with storage of water and food. This makes the oil a fantastic natural moisturizer which is gentle on sensitive skin.

Put those plump and youthful lips to work. We recommend more singing, big smiles and kind words.
