From Dry to Divine: Revitalize Your Lips with Expert Lip Care

Hello there!

Today, self-care is the utmost priority for all of us. Most of us even wait for this part of the day, where we can just indulge in skincare routine. Previously, we have addressed concerns related to the skin all over the body, and it is time to deal with the boneless organ of our body – lips.

Just like our eyes being the windows to our soul, our lips can also speak tons about our overall well-being and self-care. Whether we flash a brilliant smile, or enjoy a heartfelt laugh, our lips are the unpaid actors in expressing emotions. Our lips deserve extra attention to stay soft and supple, just like how we need a warm cup of tea on a chilly morning! And, we have got some friendly advice with some fantastic ingredients lined up for you. Whether you are a pro or a total newbie to the world of lip care, crafting a dedicated lip care routine can make all the difference in achieving that beautiful smile!

Then, why not get into this topic and get yourselves a new set of ingredients that can just be right for lips and a great addition to your ‘lip care routine.’

The science behind supple lips

Many individuals tend to experience dry and chapped lip skin. This is primarily due to the location of the lip skin, situated at the juncture between the mucous membrane and the skin of the face. The lip skin features a delicate layer of stratum corneum and is devoid of hair or sweat glands. Because of the lack of sweat glands, the lip skin possesses a limited capacity to retain moisture, leading to the development of chapped lips accompanied by flaking and scaling. Studies says that a non‐keratinized epithelium on the lip skin is directly exposed to the external environment which makes the lip skin more susceptible to the dry conditions, compared to the other parts of the skin. Also, lip skin has a higher transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and lower water content. Additionally, studies also observed that the hydration capacity of lip skin increases with TEWL decreasing, which happens when you age.

Yet, addressing the issue of insufficient moisture in lip skin, it can be achieved by making slight adjustments to our comprehensive skincare routine.

Current trend exists around attaining a plump, firm, and full lips among both aging and young population. Consumers are in search of products that give cosmetic surgery-type effects, but industries question on – how to obtain lips with high collagen levels. Well, Formulator Sample Shop has developed a solution that can fill the absence of follicles on lips, serving as the best collagen delivery system – FSS MVS lips.


FSS MVS Lips is a self-assembling micro-scale delivery system. The phospholipids are dispersed in a biomimetic fractionated Soybean extract that enables the product to be easily incorporated into the lipophilic environment of a traditional lip product. However, upon application to the lips the phospholipids naturally seek to migrate to the more hydrophilic environment of the lip’s interior. When in the hydrophilic environment the phospholipids naturally assemble into a multi-vesicular system that swells to give the lips the appearance of increased volume. This way, it does not help attain voluminous and plum lips but also a soft layer on the lip skin.

Exclusive benefits

o   FSS MVS Lips induces the generation of new collagen, supplementing the collagen already present in the lips, naturally complementing the function of the self-assembling vesicles.

o   This unique natural complex and delivery system found in FSS MVS Lips imparts hydration and plumping for immediate and long-term perceivable benefits.

As we move on to our next, let us make sure that our lips start giving that natural plump with FSS MVS Lips.

Exploring the richness of pomegranates

Pomegranates are a superfruit within the food industry and provide easily recognizable ingredients for enhancing cosmetics. Filled with essential nutrients, pomegranates cater to the modern consumer's preference for natural, plant-based elements that effectively nourish and revive the skin, especially on the lips. Through the ages, pomegranate extracts have been embraced for their hydrating properties, promoting the well-being of the skin, scalp, and hair. There joins FSS Pomegranate Sterols - a dynamic active ingredient that excels in moisturization and enhances the skin's protective barrier.


FSS Pomegranate Sterols

Pomegranates are a natural source of conjugated linolenic acid, known for its ability to boost lipid metabolism. Recent investigations have also highlighted that pomegranate seed oil is abundant in conjugated linolenic acid, which showcases potential in reducing the occurrences of specific types of cancer and skin conditions. Formulator Sample Shop takes a sustainable approach in the extraction process, sourcing the material from the unused pomegranate pericarp and seeds. To create FSS Pomegranate Sterols, we deployed a process that involves cold pressing seeds to extract the oil. Subsequently, the oil is fractionated to separate and extract the beneficial sterols. These sterols play a significant role in enhancing the skin's barrier function and promoting hydration. Formulator Sample Shop prioritizes responsible manufacturing practices on a commitment towards sustainability. It includes minimizing waste through a cradle-to-cradle approach, ensuring that materials like FSS Pomegranate Sterols are crafted with the environment in mind. This makes it an ideal addition to your lip care routine, ensuring your lips remain supple, soft, and beautifully shielded.

Exclusive benefits

o  FSS Pomegranate Sterols is capable of increasing moisture levels on the skin while enhancing the skin’s barrier function to protect against environmental stress responsible for extrinsic again.

o  As we know, many of the oils extracted from pomegranates are beneficial skin, scalp, and hair care ingredients. The combined benefits, complements of pomegranate’s essential fatty acid content and the known antioxidant properties, make FSS Pomegranate Sterols a one-two punch, perfectly designed by nature to quench our skin while providing protection.

The versatility and delights of coconuts

Enter coconut oil, which is rapidly gaining ground in the realm of personal care products, emerging as a superior alternative to mineral oil. This oil stands out due to its exceptional blend of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, hydrating, and barrier-protecting properties. Much like coconut oil, fractionated coconut lipids consist of saturated fats and medium-chain triglycerides that work wonderfully to fortify the skin's protective layer. This, in turn, helps to lock in moisture and provide effective hydration for the skin, all the while contributing to the reduction of inflammation. When it comes to your lip care routine, considering products with fractionated coconut lipids can be a game-changer. These natural ingredients not only nurture your lips but also bring with them a host of benefits that can make your lip care experience truly exceptional.

AcquaSeal® Coconut

Formulator Sample Shop has taken a precise approach in fractionating coconut lipids to craft a versatile ingredient known as AcquaSeal® Coconut. The secret to reviving the skin's protective barrier lies in the normalization of the epidermal lipids. AcquaSeal® Coconut is an excellent candidate for this purpose, thanks to its abundance of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) and non-estrogenic phytosterols. Unlike other triglycerides, MCTs stand out due to their remarkable efficiency in metabolic processing, outpacing Long Chain Triglycerides (LCTs). This sharp focus on MCTs is key. The rapid transformation of MCTs into cellular energy not only enhances the absorption of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids but also eventually converts into essential fatty acids. When it comes to your lip care routine, embracing products infused with AcquaSeal® Coconut can offer a dynamic solution that nurtures your lips and enhances their natural vitality.

Exclusive benefits

o  As a multifunctional ingredient, AcquaSeal® Coconut endows the skin and hair with a silky texture without the feel of an oily or greasy residue.

o  When incorporated in personal care products, AcquaSeal® Coconut seals in moisture and delivers critical macronutrients.

o  By implementing the coconut’s hydration retention strategy into skin and hair care formulations, we can capitalize on the undeniable and immediately perceivable benefits such as reduction in transepidermal water loss, intense moisturization, and the sensorial experience that accompanies AcquaSeal® Coconut as it assimilates with the skin transforming it into a luxuriously soft, hydrated surface.

Incorporating these innovative ingredients into your daily lip care routine can make all the difference in achieving soft, nourished, and beautifully protected lips. So, why wait? Elevate your lip care game and indulge in the goodness that these natural wonders have to offer. Here's to achieving lips that exude confidence and well-being in a healthier way!
