Lip butter is a moisturizing formula you can apply to your lips in the morning, in the evening, or any other time your lips needs a little extra nourishment. As a base, lip butter often contains butters such as shea butter, cocoa butter, and olive butter—hence why “butter” is included in the name.

    Lip Butter vs. Lip Balm: What’s the Difference?

    Lip butter and lip balm can both be a part of your lip care routine. However, there are a few key differences between the two products to keep in mind. One difference is texture. Since lip butter incorporates luscious ingredients such as shea butter, mango butter, avocado butter, and more, it tends to have a creamier texture than lip balm. Both lip butter and lip balm offer hydrating benefits. Lastly, lip balm is usually found in a small tube container. Lip butter can be found in a tube, but more often than not, you’ll find it in a small jar with different application instructions.

    How to Apply Lip Butter

    How often you apply lip butter depends your specific lip type. Try out different kinds of lip butters and flavors to find the best lip butter for you. If you have dry lips, applying lip butter 2-3 times a day might be ideal. If you lips do okay with a once-a-day or even once every-few-days application, that’s fine too! You may notice that you need to apply lip butter more when the seasons change and the air is cold—this is totally normal. You don’t need a strict schedule to follow—simply apply lip butter as needed. ChapStick® offers lip butter in a variety of flavors and aromas in easy-to-transport tubes to make application as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Apply lip butter at home or on-the-go—whatever is easiest for you!

    Lip Butter Ingredients

    Lip butter ingredients vary based on the product you choose. As we mentioned above, lip butter products generally incorporate plant butter as a base. Some lip butters may even use more than one butter. For example, ChapStick® lip butters incorporate a rich blend of mango butter, shea butter, olive butter, raspberry butter, and avocado butter. Lip butters can also include ingredients like beeswax, olive oil, and essential oils depending on the type you choose. If possible, look for lip scrubs with natural ingredients, and check the label to make sure you’re not allergic or sensitive to anything included. Explore the different options and get a feel for the different types of butter to find the best lip butter for your lips.
