Climate Control Lip Treatment is an oil- and wax-based formula that would have been recommended for dry to very dry lips if it did not contain several fragrant plant extracts whose irritation potential can make dry, chapped lips look and feel worse. Of particular concern is comfrey (Symphytum officinale) because this plant extract can cause liver problems when ingested (Source: www.naturaldatabase.com). The likelihood you’ll ingest some of it from this lip balm is there, and the amount present in the formula is definitely cause for concern.

Brand Overview

Dermalogica At-A-Glance

According to company history, Dermalogica products came into being because founder Jane Wurwand could not find a spa-oriented skin-care line that met her criteria. She was dismayed that so many skincare lines aimed at the aesthetics market had products that contained alcohol, artificial colors, fragrance, mineral oil, and lanolin, ingredients he believed had a well-documented history of problems. That's true for fragrance and alcohol (and artificial colors to a lesser extent), but mineral oil and lanolin have no documented history of causing skin problems.

The line is positioned as a no-nonsense, no frills take on skincare, with clinically-inspired packaging that does protect its beneficial ingredients from light and air. Speaking of ingredients, Dermalogica does include a lot of beneficial ones in its skincare, though there are a number of formulas in the line that also make the misstep of including potentially-irritating fragrance ingredients.
