Vitamin E is a thick gloopy oil and a powerful antioxidant. It is often added to oil and butter-based skincare products to stop the oil from going rancid quickly. It is also a great anti-ageing additive for the skin as it protects the skin’s cells from free radical damage and it is highly moisturising. Perfect for a lip balm!
I’ve paired Vitamin E with avocado oil in this recipe. Avocado oil is extremely rich and is the only oil I know of that’s not made from the seed but from the actual flesh of the avocado. Because it is so rich it is very protecting and compliments the Vitamin E perfectly in this lip balm. Rose geranium essential oil has antiseptic and healing properties which will provide additional protective properties. It also smells divine!
