Yes, menthol can cause harmful effects on your skin and lips!
Menthol and camphor is either man-made or made from the extracts of mint oil. We all know that menthol creates a cooling sensation – tingling when applied to your lips or skin. We use it when a muscle is sore in our back or legs. But our lips? Here’s what you need to know.
The cooling sensation makes you feel like it’s working! But, it can also dry out your lips and in some cases increase lip redness and induce swelling. Artificial fragrances and colors, as well as some natural ingredients like aloe or vitamin E, may also create irritation. Use our Skin and Lip Balm that contains only natural ingredients.
Many people feel menthol or camphor is irritating.
