LIPSANO® replenishes moisture lost due to exposure to daily environmental conditions, LIPSANO® also prevents further loss of moisture.
The moisturising ingredients used in LIPSANO® and their key benefits are as follows:
Lanolin: Medical Grade (Hypoallergenic)
Hypoallergenic lanolin is truly a remarkable material and has been scientifically proven to be one of the best moisturisers known to man. Hypoallergenic lanolin demonstrates excellent compatibility with the natural lipids already present in the skin and has been clinically proven as absolutely safe, even for use in wound healing processes. Approved for medical use, hypoallergenic lanolin provides long-lasting emolliency, coupled with prolonged moisturisation benefits and, as such, is a very effective barrier repair system, which quickly and effectively addresses the problems associated with dry, dehydrated and even cracked lips.
Beeswax effectively absorbs into the upper layers of the skin, where it acts a nutrient to help prevent dryness, roughness, dehydration and cracking. With an unparalleled record of safety in use, beeswax leaves the delicate skin in the lip area feeling soft, smooth and moisturised after use.
Shea butter is highly nutritious to the skin, where it rapidly absorbs, improving the texture, tone and feel of the delicate skin around the lip area. Shea butter also possesses excellent moisturising properties, helping to prevent dryness, dehydration and cracking of the lips, even in dry, cold climates.
Cocoa butter possesses remarkable rejuvenating and conditioning benefits to the skin, improving its appearance and surface texture, resulting in a more youthful look and a soft and supple feel. Cocoa butter also possesses excellent moisturising properties, helping to prevent dryness, dehydration and cracking of the lips, even in the harshest of climates.
Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant, which protects the skin against the harmful effects of unwanted free radicals. It also increases the moisturisation of the skin, improves surface relief and protects the skin against sun damage. Vitamin E possesses anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent choice to assist in the reduction of redness, soreness and other superficial skin irritations.
Lipsano® 5g Sticks contain:
CARNAUBA and CANDELILLA WAX, which are used to strengthen the formulation. Both these waxes are of natural origin and compliment the non-synthetic formulation of the original LIPSANO® formulation.
The moisturising ingredients in LIPSANO® are trapped on the lips surface, below the layer of sunscreens, in order to maximise their moisturising activity.
- Many lip care products on the market leave the lips looking greasy after use. Is this true for LIPSANO® ?
- When LIPSANO® was specially developed as a complete lip care system, one of the objectives was to ensure that the lips did not appear or feel excessively greasy, after the product was applied. On application, LIPSANO® absorbs rapidly into the lips, leaving a matte, rather than greasy, looking appearance.
NOURISH AND CONDITION
LIPSANO® contains a special blend of natural soothing, refreshing and rejuvenating conditioners, which provide a pleasant “tingle” on the lips, as soon as you apply the product, thereafter leaving your lips feeling cool and rejuvenated.
LIPSANO® contains a special blend of soothing ingredients, designed to effectively reduce the Likelihood of discomfort cause by superficial skin irritations LIPSANO® uses a combination of aroma and taste to enhance the product experience while ensuring not to be overpowering.
The above mentioned ingredients used in LIPSANO® and their key benefits are as follows:
Camphor is a naturally occurring product extracted from the wood of the camphor tree, Cinnamomum camphora. Camphor has been used for centuries for it’s beneficial properties on the skin, where it exhibits a detoxifying and purifying effect on the skin. Camphor is well known for its ability to help reduce the likelihood of infection and other superficial skin disorders.
Menthol is incorporated into LIPSANO® for its classic benefit of being able to provide a cooling effect on the skin. Immediately after application to the lips, a pleasant cooling, tingling sensation is experienced, which dramatically improves the comfort of the skin.
Salicylic acid is well known for its ability to act as an antimicrobial, helping to prevent the onset of infection and other superficial skin imperfections, associated with unpleasant germs. Gentle in nature, salicylic acid helps to reduce the likelihood of skin blemishes and other skin problems, which can result in more serious skin disorders, which may require medical intervention.
The flavour used in LIPSANO® has been specially chosen to be noticeable, whilst not producing an overpowering taste on the lips. This specially chosen flavour, subtly vanilla in character, enhances the in-use experience when using LIPSANO®, providing a pleasant and holistic sensation, when the product is applied to the lips.
Saccharin is an extremely safe, sugar-free sweetening agent and is included in LIPSANO® at a very low level, to enhance the in-use experience of using the product.
Some lip care products contain phenol, which is said to be effective in fighting the symptoms of infection. Why is there no phenol in LIPSANO®?
Whilst phenol is used to help prevent infections, it can also be harmful and irritating to the skin, if used at excessive concentrations for prolonged period of time. When LIPSANO® was developed, one of the objectives was to make the product as safe as possible for all people of all ages – hence the decision not to include phenol in the product.

LIPSANO® contains a unique blend of scientifically proven sunscreens, which offer protection for the lip area, against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB radiation contained in the sun’s rays.
LIPSANO® has been scientifically proven to have an SPF value of greater than 30 while being non-irritating and non-sensitising, placing it in the category of “very high” protection against the sun’s harmful rays. Therefore LISPANO® has been awarded the coveted “seal of approval” by CANSA (The Cancer Association of South Africa).
The sunscreen ingredients used in LIPSANO® and their key benefits are as follows:
Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate is one of the safest and most widely used UVB sunscreens in the world, effectively protecting the skin against the harmful effects of the sun’s UVB rays. Unchecked, UVB rays can cause reddening, burning and peeling of the skin and, in severe cases, can even be the cause of some skin cancers. Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate is a PABA-free sunscreen, that effectively protects the skin against these harmful UVB rays, converting them into harmless energy forms, which cause no damage to the delicate skin in the lip area.
After ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, Benzophenone-3 is one of the most commonly used UVB sunscreens in skin care products today. PABA-free, benzophenone-3 works in synergy with ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, to provide maximum protection from the sun’s harmful UVB rays. These two ingredients, when combined in a specific ratio, are primarily responsible for LIPSANO®’s excellent SPF rating of 30+, high enough to put it into the “very high” protection category, in almost all parts of the world. Benzophenone-3 also has the added advantage of providing some protection against the sun’s UVA rays, where it acts in synergy with butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane.
Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane is the third element in LIPSANO®’s unique sun protection system. This sunscreen, with years of proven safety behind it, is the most effective and widely used UVA protector in the world. UVA radiation, often referred to as the “silent killer”, is present all year round, even when the sun is not shining. The long term effects of UVA rays are much more serious than those of UVB, causing premature skin ageing, loss of elasticity, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), premature wrinkling, dehydration and, most seriously of all, some deadly skin cancers, which can kill within months, if un-checked. Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane is an effective UVA sunscreen, which provides the delicate skin around the lip area with the protection that it so badly needs, from harmful, and sometimes deadly, UVA rays.
- LIPSANO® is claimed to be PABA-free. What does this mean and why is it so important for Lipsano Lip Care?
- The acronym “PABA” stands for “para-amino benzoic acid” and it is used to describe a group of sunscreens that primarily provide protection against the harmful UVB rays emitted by the sun. Whilst PABA-derived sunscreens are permitted for use in skin care products, a lot of bad press over recent years has suggested that they may be harmful when used on the skin, over prolonged periods of time. In the interests of maintaining the highest degree of product safety and efficacy, all of the sunscreens used in Lipsano Lip Care are PABA-free.
