Why did the name of the Sunproof Intensive Lip Balm Change?
Formerly known as the Sunproof Intensive Lip Balm SPF 24, it is now called the Sunproof Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 24! The name was changed so that the effective formula can be better highlighted and suited to the product itself. We wanted to be mindful yet impactful in the change we made. That said, we understand if you feel a bit confused about the name change, we’re happy and open to answering any questions. Let us know if there’s any way we can help!
Were any changes made to this Lip Balm?
Great question! The only thing that changed was the name. Formerly known as the Sunproof Intensive Lip Balm SPF 24, it is now known as the Sunproof Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 24! You’ll continue to experience the cushiony moisture and SPF protection you’ve come to know and love from this formula!
Is the SPF in this lip balm physical or chemical? / Is it reef-safe?
We love this question! The Sunproof Lip Balm SPF 24 uses both physical and chemical sunscreens to keep your lips protected and coral reefs 100% safe! It’s formulated with Avobenzone, Homosalate, and Octisalate, which provide protection of SPF 24 against UVA and UVB rays without the dryness or white cast found in other SPF lip balms.
Is this the same/a similar formula as your Liquid Balm Lip Treatment?
The Sunproof Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 24 is a new, cushiony lip balm formula that provides many of the same skin-loving benefits as our Liquid Balm Lip Treatment while also protecting the delicate skin on your lips from the damaging effects of UV rays. We love using the Sunproof Lip Balm SPF 24 during the day and anytime you are exposed to the sun, and using our Liquid Balm Lip Treatment as a super hydrating overnight treatment. Both are incredibly nourishing and lock moisture into the lips. Together, they make the perfect lip care duo!
How often should I reapply to get the most out of the SPF protection?
Great question! We recommend applying the Sunproof Lip Balm SPF 24 generously to lips at least 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapplying every 2 hours for the best protection.
Is this lip balm waterproof/will it come off while swimming?
The Sunproof Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 24 is budge-proof and slip-proof without feeling sticky or waxy, so its cushiony barrier of hydration and SPF protection will stay in place throughout your daily outdoor activities! We recommend reapplying after swimming for the best SPF protection.
Does this SPF lip balm have a white/any cast to it?
Not at all! We wanted to create a lip balm with SPF protection that was inclusive of all skin tones, so we formulated the Sunproof Lip Balm SPF 24 with Avobenzone, Homosalate, and Octisalate, which provide SPF 24 protection against UV rays and a transparent, velvety finish without the white cast found in other SPF products.
