ALBUS & FLORA
Caring for the skin on our lips is often missed during our everyday skincare routine, meaning they can often become dry, chapped, and damaged, by the cold, the wind, and the sun. Unlike most other areas of your skin, your lips contain no oil glands and cannot generate their own hydration, they are also one of the first areas to show signs of ageing, particularly in women.
Albus & Flora founder Rachel Williams with her unique understanding of how the skin responds and adapts to environmental challenges over time, was inspired to create her botanical lip care range following her time skiing in the French Alps – seeing first-hand the acute and chronic damage UV could cause on un-protected lips.
These are no mere lip balms – they are award-winning cosmeceuticals for your lips, blending pure botanicals with modern UVA and UVB filters, to hydrate and protect against sun damage, fine lines and loss of lip fullness, every day. In five shades they give lips a soft sheen and a sheer wash of colour they melt into the lips to deeply nourish, yet leave a light, long lasting emollient barrier to reduce moisture loss and protect against the drying effects of sun, sea, wind and cold.
Formulated with 15 plant oils, botanical actives, omega 3, 6, 7 and 9, vitamins and lip plumping peptides to protect, nourish and support barrier function and hydrate, condition and reduce moisture loss. Apply liberally for a more intense colour.
