"Hydro Salve Paraben-Free Lip Balm"
From product name
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: butyrospermum parkii butter, cocos nucifera oil.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

1.1% - 1.6%

Can contain potent anti-oxidant compounds (abbreviated ECG, GCG, EGC, and EGCG) that might help protect the skin from free radicals.

The concentration of the antioxidant compounds in the extract also tends to be low to be effective in topical formulation
0.1% - 0.4%
A more stable but less bio-available form of vitamin E compared to Tocopherol. Might help moisturize and protect the skin from free radicals, but mostly used in low concentrations to stabilize other ingredients.
