Karen Behnke, a wellness entrepreneur, created Juice Beauty with the philosophical approach of developing beauty products from a wellness point of view. She believed that skincare should start first with an antioxidant and vitamin-rich organic botanical juice, rather than the unsafe PEGS/petroleum derivatives or the water that most skincare brands use as their base. Multiple clinical tests and clinical validation showed that Juice Beauty products are effective and safe.
Nourishes lips and protects them from the sun's UVA and UVB rays. Zinc oxide protects the skin on your lips from the sun's harmful rays.
sun protection & moisturization for the lips
Nourishes your lips and protects them from the sun's harmful UVA and UVB rays. The 4% non-nano zinc oxide provides broad spectrum protection. Zinc oxide is the safest and most effective active sunscreen ingredient. It's a mineral that protects your skin by scattering, reflecting, and absorbing UVA & UVB rays. Zinc improves the skin's health through its ability to encourage detoxification and it has also been shown to boost wound healing due to its anti-inflammatory activity [1-4]. Zinc oxide is frequently added to sunscreens as it targets free radicals, thereby preventing them from damaging fibroblasts and lipids (fats) that play a role in protecting the skin from UV exposure or skin irritants (e.g., pollution) . Zinc oxide is also linked to anti-aging due to its ability to protect collagen-producing fibroblast and lipids in the skin . Zinc oxide creates a protective layer on the skin that blocks UV light and in doing so, it hinders UV rays from penetrating the skin. The structure of zinc oxide helps it mix easily with other topical agents and zinc does not absorb deeply into the skin , which reduces the occurrence of skin irritation and is one of the reasons why it is added to sunscreen for individuals with sensitive skin. These properties make zinc oxide a strong UV-blocking shield.
