Carrot Oil is packed with vitamins. The rich beta-carotene content in Carrot Oil gives it an almost surreal yellow/orange hue. When used in formulations, the oil acts as a natural colorant, tinting products with its bold color. Because of Carrot Oil's super saturated color, it's important to use it sparingly in formulations for skin care. This lip balm uses just around 16% Carrot Oil, enough to color the balm and leave a temporary tint on the lips. Like Carrot Oil, Murumuru Butter is rich in Vitamin A, making this lip balm excellent for soothing dry, cracked lips. We used Tangerine Flavor Oil to give this balm a sweet scent, but it would be perfectly delicious if left all-natural and unscented.
