Most people assume that lip balms, butters, and glosses are the best way to protect your lips from sun exposure. Not so. While these options certainly nourish and hydrate your lips, a true sunscreen is what you need to avoid those harmful UVA/UVB rays. Without proper lip sunscreen protection — like our favorite from Supergoop! — you’re actually allowing more UV rays to pass through the protective barrier, causing your lips to dry out and age faster.
Supergoop! founder, Holly Thaggard, started this premium line of sunscreens after learning two frightening facts. First, skin cancer is the most common of cancer in the United States, and second, that 90% of all telltale signs of aging are due to over exposure to the sun. She decided to raise awareness about these issues and began creating sunscreens that are lightweight, never greasy, are easily absorbed, and most importantly, protect your skin. Supergoop! sunscreens have been clinically proven to neutralize free-radical agents and improve collagen production, along with reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyper-pigmentation. But what truly sets Supergoop! a part from the mainstream sunscreens is that its products are oxybenzone-free. Oxybenzone is a harmful chemical that has been linked to hormone distribution and cell damage.
