Finding the best lip balm for all-round lip care.

The ingredients in your lip balm can have a big impact on the effect it has on your lips – look for a lip balm that best meets your needs.

All about lip balm ingredients

Healthy-looking lips are all about using the right lip care products containing the best ingredients.

We are all individual – how to choose the right lip balm for you

For many years, lip balm has been a staple product for lips that look smooth and healthy, but with so many products and ingredients on the market, finding the right one can sometimes be overwhelming.

To find the best product for you, it’s vital to establish what effect you want the lip balm to have on your lips. If your lips tend to suffer from extreme dryness, choose a product with intensively moisturising properties and ingredients like shea butter and almond oil. 

If, on the other hand, you prefer a lighter and more everyday formula that absorbs easily and won’t leave any kind of sheen to the lips, a lip balm with aloe vera like Labello Hydro Care might be just what you’re looking for.

As a global skincare company with a successful history spanning over a century, NIVEA has a lot of experience in which ingredients are the kindest and most effective on the lips. With a wide selection of lip balms to meet a variety of different needs, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

5 lip balm ingredients not to miss out on

Shea butter

Labello Original with shea butter will be ultra-nourishing for the lips. Particularly effective if your lips are very dry or in cold weather conditions.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera is well known for its natural healing and moisturising properties. Labello Hydro Care with aloe vera helps to support the lips’ natural moisturisation and has a quick-absorbing and non-greasy formula – perfect if you prefer the low maintenance approach.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant and helps to repair and protect damaged skin. Lip balm like Labello Med Repair with Vitamin E can be very effective in regenerating dry or chapped lips and providing rich care in extreme weather conditions.


Panthenol (or Provitamin B5 as it’s also known) is very effective for soothing and has a calming effect on the skin. Labello Original with panthenol and shea butter provides intensive moisturisation and its classic scent will pamper your senses.

Why it’s important to protect your lips from the sun

It’s essential to remember that the skin on your lips is thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face. Exposing your lips to UVA/UVB rays can damage them and dry them out – and who wants sore, chapped lips in the summer?

That’s why it’s always important to choose a lip balm with SPF. Labello Sun Protect with SPF 30 is the perfect solution. Not only does it provide effective protection against UVA/UVB rays, it also moisturises your lips and is water-resistant.

Change your lip balm with the seasons for the best protection all year round

A lip balm that works for you during the warm summer months may not be intensive and nourishing enough for when it gets colder. Make sure your lips are getting the best protection possible by modifying your lip care routine along with the changing seasons.
