Product summary

Based on the ingredients included, "jane iredale - LipDrink Lip Balm - Giddy" works well for moisturizing the skin. As we expect from a proper moisturizer, the formula includes a combo of effective humectants and emollients. These are the two different types of ingredients that are essential for improving the skin hydration and supporting a healthy skin barrier. Humectants in this product (panthenol and aloe barbadensis extract) help to increase the water content in the upper layer of the skin. (These ingredients do so by "capturing" water molecules from the outside air or from within the deeper layers of the skin). Emollients in this formulation (octyldodecyl neopentanoate, persea gratissima oil, ricinus communis seed oil, coco-caprylate/caprate and coconut alkanes) help to reduce the moisture loss from the skin. They also soften the skin surface and relieve the feeling of dryness and tightness.

Ingredient callouts

  • This formulation also includes panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) at about 3.60% - 5.40% concentration. In this concentration, panthenol works effectively to improve the skin barrier and reduce inflammation.
