Ingredient Feature: Behind Lip Atelier

Lip Atelier Lip Colours are the newest addition to the Emilie Heathe family, and  they wouldn't fit in without a few shining ingredients. The balance between clean ingredients and a high-performing formula can be a difficult one to achieve, and that's why it took us over four years to develop these lipsticks after multiple rounds of reformulations. 

Read on for a dive into the ingredients that make Lip Atelier great for your skin, and able achieve the lustrous shine and delicate feel that we know you'll love.

Candelilla Wax

This natural and vegan  wax is known to boost cell regeneration, and is effective in treating and preventing sun spots due to its concentration of  vitamin A (a vitamin that is great for maintaining skin health and managing effects of photoaging). Also, it’s a perfect soothing moisturizer, and it never leaves a sticky or tacky feeling on the lips.

Sunflower Seed Wax

Sunflower seed wax is also rich in  vitamins A and E, and their moisturizing and antioxidant properties leave your skin in a better state than it was before use.  Plus, the   vitamin D in sunflower seed wax’s makeup is important for skin cell rejuvenation, repair, and protection. 

Coffee Leaf/Seed Extract

Coffee is more than just a morning pick-me-up; it’s great for the skin too! Coffee leaf/ seed extract is teeming with antioxidants that work to protect the skin from external stressors like  free radicals,  which can cause damage to cells in the forms of wrinkles, sagging skin, dry patches, dullness, uneven pigmentation, or in extreme cases, even cancer. We loaded up our lipsticks with this star ingredient and paired it with other botanicals like orchid and ginseng extracts to create the ultimate antioxidant system of defense. 

Orchid Flower Extract

Orchid extract also contains antioxidants and other essential vitamins like calcium,  magnesium, and  zinc which are all great for your skin.  Calcium is known for its ability to aid in cell regeneration, and it also locks in moisture. Both magnesium and zinc have similar characteristics, and together, this extract’s properties work to reduce the visible effects of aging while boosting and protecting your skin’s immunity.

Ginseng Root Extract

Of course, we couldn’t say no to one last antioxidant, so  ginseng root extract works hand in hand with Lip Atelier’s other star ingredients. Similar to them, ginseng root also has anti-aging properties, as it boosts collagen production and reduces collagen degradation, all while moisturizing your lips.
