Lip care has become an essential part of the day-to-day personal-care regime as the skin on lips is thinner due to which it is easier for them to crack and chap quickly. The products which are manufactured for the purpose of lip care offer nourishment and protection to the lips against drying effects and dust. Lip care products are manufactured by using various raw materials such as beeswax, flavours, dyes, paraffin, camphor, sunscreens and fragrances along with other ingredients.
