I've been using Carmex lip balm for years.. I've always had dry lips and I find this stuff works really well.
I went to buy some more today and noticed it contains salicylic acid. What's that all about then, I wondered.. why would a lip balm contain SA?
I'm not going to stop using it, because whatever it has in it, it works for me..
I just wondered if anyone had any idea what use SA is, in lip balm?? smile.gif

That's weird.... ummm.... the only thing I can think that would be for would be exfoliation. But that kind of defeats the purpose of a lip balm, because SA can dry your skin out.... eusa_eh.gif

SA sheds dead skin cells fast.. And when your lips get chapped, its all dead skin. Shedding dead skin off your lips and feeding it moisturizer restores non dead skin.

I think lip balm and chapstick and all that shit for your lips has oils in it..So which wouldn't be a good thing for your actuall skin.. eusa_shifty.gif

Thanks for all your replies smile.gif

As Pika said, i don't really care why it has SA in.. I've used it for years and it does its job. I was just curious really.
Pore clogging or not, i have to use it, or my mouth'd fall off! biggrin.gif
