Lip Pure Botanical Oils contains six types of natural oil ingredients — shea butter, olive oil, macadamia nut oil, meadowfoam seed oil, jojoba oil, and almond oil — to deeply moisturize and protect the lips. And there’s Lip Pure Fragrance Free that has powerful antioxidants from Brazilian berries, grapeseed oil, and soy for youthful-looking lips. It also contains royal jelly extract and manuka honey to lock in moisture and provide long-lasting hydration.
