While you are out enjoying the great weather this summer, it is important to take care of your skin. This means more than just slathering on the sunscreen. Most people are prone to talking, eating and drinking (big shocker, right?) But that means the protection on your lips may not last long. When used in lip balm, zinc oxide benefits lip health and provides protection from harsh rays.

Reasons Your Lip Balm Should Contain Zinc Oxide

There are a lot of lip balms out there that have fun packaging, tasty flavors or even glitter (fun until someone kisses your forehead), but are they the best thing for your lips? Here are some of the reasons your lip balm should contain zinc oxide.


Clogged skin is angry skin. And no one wants angry skin. Zinc oxide is non-comedogenic which means that it does not clog pores. This makes zinc perfect for use on sensitive skin or for people with allergies. Zinc oxide is generally well-tolerated by all skin types. 

Clearer Skin

Zinc Oxide is an essential mineral and has been used for centuries to cope with mild skin irritations, which lips are prone to, given the frequency with which they are used for minor activities like breathing, eating and drinking. Receptra highly recommends you don’t stop those activities, but instead, give your lips some zinc love. 

Zinc Oxide Benefits for Sun Protection

Protection from the sun is crucial to healthy skin and this includes lips. Unlike many other substances in skin products that are designed to be absorbed, zinc oxide sits on top of the skin. This provides a protective layer against allergens and harmful sun exposure. Adding zinc to lip balm will help keep your lips healthy all summer long!
