Lip Balm FAQ's

What causes chapped lips?

Chapped lips are sore, rough, scaly lips caused by dryness.  The lips lack a barrier to evaporation present in normal skin.  As a result, they are prone to dry out.  Wind, sun-exposure, and low humidity may speed up the drying process.   In severe cases, inflammation may develop and lead to the soreness and redness characteristic of chapped lips. Like washing hands too frequently, frequent lip-licking can also dry out the lips.

What are the symptoms of chapped Lips?

Chapped lips are sore due to low grade inflammation. Sometimes this inflammation is better seen on the skin under and above the normal pink-colored lips.  Chapping causes dullness, roughness, cracks, and scales.

How does Aubio Lip Balm help decrease and/or prevent chapped lips?

Aubio forms a protective barrier to help your own lips retain moisture.  It contains a broad and effective sunscreen with a skin protection factor (SPF) greater than 30 to protect lips from damaging ultraviolet rays.  It also contains emollients, oils, waxes, and eumectants that help the skin hold water and protect the skin of the lips from irritating chemicals and foods.

Why do lips dry out faster than other areas?

The surface of the lips differs from the surface of the skin, which is covered with an evaporation-limiting barrier membrane called the stratum corneum. This acts as a wall to retard evaporation. Also unlike skin, there are no oil glands in your lips.  The lack of barrier and the lack of oil glands allow the lips to dry out more quickly.   When you are in dry conditions like in the sunlight or arid climates like the desert, your lips are often the first things to be affected.

Why is lip health so important?

Lips attract. This is why people adorn them with lipsticks and liners and change their appearance with fillers and injections. The health of our lips signals to our friends the health of our bodies. At the same time, the appearance of healthy lips contributes to facial beauty and sexual appeal.p>

What makes lips unhealthy?

Lips, like skin, can suffer from the stresses of daily living, such as sunburn, irritation, chapping, weather, and contact with foods, chemicals, and cosmetic products. Although lips contain many systems to help restore good lip health, sometimes this is not enough. Then the lips become tender, chapped, inflamed, cracked, and dull in appearance. In many people, inflammations from damaged lips set off an attack or attacks of cold sores (herpes simplex).

Are lips just flaps of skin that need exercise?

Lips are more complicated than they may seem. They have a skin side and a mucosal (inside the mouth) side.  They move in many directions under the direction of many muscle groups and nerves. They maintain flexibility and glossiness with moisture, supplied naturally or by lip licking.  Unhealthy or dysfunctional lips cause difficulties with speaking, eating, drinking, and even kissing.  Healthy lips can signal happiness with a smile, or anger with a frown.

Lips are complicated, too, by the way they serve as an interface between the warm, controlled environment of the tissues under the lips and the cold or hot, rapidly changing, and potentially dangerous environment of the outside world. Indeed, the surface of the lips changes rapidly from the moist mouth to the dry part of the lips.

Can Aubio Lip Balm repair damaged lips?

Aubio contains materials the lip skin needs to repair itself and make new skin. The lips create a film that seals the space between cells.  Aubio provides the cholesterol, fatty acids, and ceremides needed to make this film.  It also contains waxes and oils to coat and smooth the skin surface and add luster.

I have heard that certain lip balms cause your lips to be drier in the long run. This is true?

There are certain chemical ingredients in other lip balms that can cause your lips to become dry and chapped with use.  These detergent-like chemicals keep the oils from separating from the water but can irritate the lips and create dry lips hours later.  Aubio lip balm is pH balanced. Tests show it does not irritate skin.

How often will I need to reapply Aubio?

There is no harm from using it too often.  We recommend an application at bedtime and after every meal.  On sunny, windy, or low humidity days, more frequent applications are recommended, including whenever the lips feel dry, rough, or chapped.  Since saliva may wash off some sunscreen, apply Aubio at least every hour when you are in direct sunlight.  Aubio has “staying power.”  The moisture and repairing aspects of Aubio are very powerful.  You can feel the soothing from the first application.  Hours later that protection is still there.

What makes Aubio lip balm different from all the other lip balms?

It contains Aubio’s patented technology of SuperBotanicals™, natures golden drop.  It uses the power of plants coupled with other powerful ingredients to protect lips from the sunlight, to lock in the moisture your lips already have, and to help your own body restore moist skin.  After all, plants are exposed to sunlight, wind and low humidity.  They have developed their own ways to stay moist.  No other lip balm on the market contains these SuperBotanicals.  No other lip balms contain our formulation of skin building blocks, humectants, emollients, ols, and waxes.

Does Aubio “hold up” to lip licking?

Aubio is very “substantive.” This means it resists washing or rubbing off. It contains humectants that actually enter the lip surface and hold the water from within.  It is formulated  to stay on the lips through eating, drinking and, yes, even some licking!

How can lips protect us?

The skin of the lips serves as a barrier to keep the inside in and the outside out. How does it do this? First, the layers of the lip put up a formidable barrier to penetration. The outer layer of skin, the epidermis, contains tough keratinocyte cells that overlap each other like bricks overlapping on a brick wall. Second, keratinocytes attach firmly to each other so space between cells is minimized. These attachments and skin oils (intercellular lipids) constitute the “mortar” that fills spaces between cells to form firm structural defense against barrier chemicals, food, and germs. Third, the epidermal barrier contains antibodies and cells of inflammation. They allow the epidermal barrier a way to protect and repair itself. Keratinocytes secrete chemicals called cytokines to control growth, healing, and defense. They allow inflammatory cells to swallow up bacteria and other agents that get through the barrier.

How does Aubio lip balm keep lips healthy and beauitful?

  1. It contains superbotanical compounds. These plant extracts have chemicals that work together as they did in the living plant from which they were derived.
  2. The lip balm also contains building block molecules. These help the skin synthesize the intercellular lipid mortar it needs to repair and rejuvenate itself. These oil-like lipids include ceremides, triglycerides, and cholesterol.
  3. The lip balm contains occlusive moisturizes including waxes and oils. These coat the lip surface to retard evaporation and to make them smooth and vibrant.
  4. The lip balm contains humectants.   These molecules penetrate into the epidermis where they bind with water to hold inside the skin. They make the lips appear fuller and less wrinkled.
  5. The lip balm contains sunscreens to minimize the chance for sunburn and sun damage. Its skin protection factor (SPF) of 30 means that, properly applied and reapplied, the balm can allow you to say out in sunlight much longer. Most other lip balms have lower SPFs

The lip balm is free of sensitizers and irritating chemicals. It passed safety testing in the laboratories and on people. It contains no common sensitizers.

A person with active shingles can spread the virus when the rash is in the blister-phase. A person is not infectious before the blisters appear. Once the rash has developed crusts, the person is no longer contagious.

Shingles is less contagious than chickenpox and the risk of a person with shingles spreading the virus is low if the rash is covered.

If you have shingles

  • Keep the rash covered.
  • Avoid touching or scratching the rash.
  • Wash your hands often to prevent the spread of varicella zoster virus.
  • Until your rash has developed crusts, avoid contact with

◦pregnant women who have never had chickenpox or the chickenpox vaccine;

◦premature or low birth weight infants; and

◦people with weakened immune systems, such as people receiving immunosuppressive medications or undergoing chemotherapy, organ transplant recipients, and people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.
