Natural beauty brand Weleda has unveiled three gorgeous new Tinted Lip Balms in the green beauty pioneer’s first foray into colour cosmetics.
Keep it natural
The new NATRUE certified natural balms are designed to bring out the natural beauty of the lips. The protective formulations are available in three flattering shades that use mineral pigments and natural ingredients to provide a subtle hint of colour and shimmer:
Nude – a barely-there tint to leave a natural shimmer on the lips
Rose – a delicate blush pink with an attractive natural rosy-lips shine
Berry red – a sheer raspberry red colour for a ‘just bitten’ berry look
As you’d expect from a skincare expert with nearly a century of expertise, all three balms are good for your lips. They’re made with nourishing cold-pressed plant oils and protective vegetable waxes – and the result is a trio of skin-friendly, vegan-friendly and eco-friendly products that are free from petroleum derivatives.
The glossy balms have a creamy, light texture and spread easily and evenly to leave just a natural hint of colour with no stickiness. Free from parabens and other artificial preservatives, they are ideal for use during pregnancy. To top it off, they’re also gluten free.
The natural ingredient heroes include skin-smoothing organic jojoba oil produced by Weleda’s long-term farming partners in Argentina, where the fertile orchards are Demeter certified and their own mill ensures sustainable processing and fair working conditions.
There’s also the finest Andalucían organic olive oil to soften lips, plus fair trade organic shea butter and protective vegetable wax made from sunflower seed to lock in moisture.
Thanks to Weleda’s skilful in-house fragrance development team, the deliciously creamy balms are naturally scented with pure essential oils, leaving a waft of delicate rose petals and vanilla on the lips.
The balms come in neat 10ml recyclable tubes that are perfect to pop in a pocket when you’re out and about, or to pack for the plane to protect against drying air-conditioning. The range has been dermatologically tested for suitability even for sensitive lips and atopic skin.
