Peri-oral lip balm
LipService peri-oral lip balm has been specifically formulated with a team of dental professionals to suit the needs of patients undergoing treatment and post-operatively. The balm provides a unique combination of;
An optimal peri-oral environment for the dental and medical health care professional to operate (non-slip and with no petroleum based agents that could disrupt bonding procedures) and a soothing, long lasting moisturising and non-irritating occlusive layer on the lips and peri-oral area during and immediately after treatment.
LipService peri-oral lip balm has been developed in conjunction with the Postgraduate School of Dentistry to be highly efficacious when applied topically to the lips to moisturise the lips before, during and after dental treatment and relieve the symptoms of chapped or dry lips, angular cheilitis, stomatitis and herpes simplex.
Soy Wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Natural Beeswax, Capric/Capryllic Triglycerides, Canibis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Limanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Castor Isostearate Succinate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Tocopheryl (Vitamin E)
This shredded wax is used in our dental lip balms and is fully biodegradable. Derived from soy beans, it melts easily and is all natural, has no taste and doesn’t lose viscosity in different temperatures.
When used in our dental balm, beeswax creates a barrier which helps to seal moisture into the skin. This is especially beneficial in dental procedures where lip chaffing can easily occur. This barrier also helps to protect the skin from environmental toxins and irritants. Beeswax also offers anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits making it helpful in treating peri-oral skin irritation.
Like beeswax, this unique wax has quite a high melting point, and acts as a stabiliser and emulsifier in balms, creams, salves and lotions. It is skin conditioning, easily absorbed, odourless and rich in nutrients. It also provides a wonderful gloss and lubricity to lip balms.
Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride
This moderately thick oil is naturally derived from coconut or palm kernel oils. Primarily used as an emollient and “slip” agent offering a soft feel and easy glide when applied. It is included in our lip balm due to its mix of fatty acids that skin can use to replenish its surface and resist moisture loss
Hemp Seed Oil ( Canibis Sativa)
This cold pressed oil from the seeds of the hemp plant, should not to be confused with cannabidiol oil, which is procured from the leaves, stalks and flowers of hemp. Hemp oil is high in omega acids 3, 6, and 9, which all help hydrate the skin when applied topically. It is also a humectant, so it draws moisture to the skin. Being high in omegas and full of essential amino acids that help make younger, smoother-looking skin and reduce inflammation in the body. Because hemp oil is non comedogenic, it won't clog pores and cause breakouts.
Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis)
Derived from the castor bean, this oil is thick and sticky to the touch. An important ingredient in our lip balms, it is often used in night creams or where skin protection is necessary. Acts as a barrier agent and emollient like petroleum jelly, although not as thick and totally neutral.
Virgin Olive Oil (Olea Europaea)
Is an ancient natural beauty secret becoming an essential component of everyday skin care, including your lips. Aids in conditioning and protecting lips from drying out or becoming chapped. Natural cold pressed oil typically used as an emollient.
Castor Isostearate Succinate
A mix of esters formed by the reaction of castor seed oil, isostearic acid, and succinic acid. This ingredient functions as a skin conditioning agent and is primarily used as an emollient or lubricant (natural slip agent) in high end lip-care products.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil (Limanthes Alba)
This is the newest oil on the market, soon to be seen on labels from many companies. Derived from small flowers which are grown in the mid-west of the US, it offers great conditioning, good “slip” and the real advantage comes from the fact it extends the shelf life of other oils by primarily attaching the molecules together. Moisturizing and Antioxidant rich... Like jojoba oil, meadowfoam seed oil is slightly waxy and closely resembles human sebum. When used in skin care, it naturally helps your skin to effectively form a barrier to lock in moisture and deliver nutrients deep into your epidermis.
Shea Butter ( Butyrospermum Parkll)
Considered as one of the best natural anti-aging products, preventing premature wrinkles and facial lines... Shea Butter is derived from the Karate Tree of Continental Africa. This thick “butter” is loaded with vitamin F, which keeps your skin hydrated and soft thus maintaining its elasticity. It has many other skin benefits such as moisterizing and nourishing, with some ability for cellular renewal and has natural low level UV protection for the skin. In summary this product is considered one of the best repairers of dried chapped lips.
Tocopheryl (Vitamin E)
Helps to prevent skin damage from free radicals and the sun's ultraviolet rays. It is a common ingredient in many skin care products, such as body lotions, anti-aging serums, moisturizers and lip balms. As well, as an antioxidant, it extends the shelf life of product it is used in.

Conditions Being Treated
Cheilitis Simplex (Chapped Lips)
Chapped lips, also known as cheilitis simplex or common cheilitis are characterized by cracking, fissuring, and peeling of the skin of the lips and are one of the most common types of cheilitis.
While both lips may be affected, the lower lip is the most common site. The patient may also complain of a burning sensation or the formation of large, painful cracks when the lips are distended during dental procedures. Chronic cheilitis simplex can progress to crusting and bleeding. Lip licking, biting, or rubbing habits can also cause chronic cheilitis simplex.
Constant licking of the lips causes drying and irritation, and eventually the mucosa splits or cracks. Digestive enzymes present in the saliva may also irritate the lips, and the evaporation of the water in saliva saps moisture from the lips. Some children have a habit of sucking and chewing on the lower lip, producing a combination of cheilitis and sharply demarcated perioral erythema.
Chapped lips are the result of dehydration in the body, especially in and around the mouth. Keep your patients hydrated and you can help them avoid this problem. Drinking plenty of water each day is one of the most effective remedies for chapped lips.
Treating Chafed Lips
This condition is caused on the lips as a result of repeated rubbing action or friction, especially during prolonged dental procedures. Commonly, chafing occurs on the nipples, near the groin region and in the underarms. However, it can also take place on other body parts which have been rubbed against something. Anyone can become a victim of chafing, but it is a problem mostly seen in people which are either obese or are in athletes.
In the case of the lips, chafing can last for several days, even after the real source of chafing is removed. If symptoms persist, then the patient must see a dermatologist. In simple words, Lip chafing is the irritation or soreness which occurs as a result of friction. Generous application of LipService Dental Lip Balm before, during and after treatment significantly reduces the likelihood and propensity of chafing and diminishes the symptoms.
Minimising Herpes Simplex Outbreaks
Lysine in the LipService Dental Balm can help to prevent the growth of the herpes simplex virus. Lysine may help to slow down or prevent the growth of the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), which is responsible for cold sores.
Treating Angular Cheilitis
Usually patients with angular cheilitis also have chapped lips, so it's not uncommon for them to use LipService lip balm frequently for relief. However, lip balm can make angular cheilitis worse if used incorrectly. Please ensure that your patients follow these instructions carefully.
To prevent contaminating the lip-balm you will need to apply the balm to your lips with clean fingers. Get enough of the balm on your finger that you don't have to re-apply it to your finger after you touch your lips (if you need to do this, use a different finger or wash your hands before doing so).
When applying it to your lips, start in the middle of your lip and work towards your mouth corners. This way you will end at your mouth corner which prevents you from spreading the angular cheilitis bacteria and fungus across your mouth.
