In Winter, the lips will quickly become brittle and cracked. Remedy care make pens. But many of them contain mineral oils with a potentially cancer-causing substances.

These substances are the saturated Petroleum hydrocarbons, which accumulate in the fat tissue and the liver. In animal experiments, leading to organ damage. In you can find aromatic Petroleum hydrocarbons – short-MOAH -. Even the smallest MOAH-amounts in the body can be carcinogenic. Therefore, the European food safety authority (EFSA) considers the inclusion of MOAH as “potentially worrying”.

Öko-Test is criticized: Some of the lip balms are almost half of the oil. This is of particular concern because the substances used in lip care by Licking, eating or Drinking can migrate in the body and also contained in the MOAH traces.
