Pros: Contains zinc, non-drying

Cons: wish it was tinted

This lip balm is great to protect lips from the sun.  I found it quite moisturizing.  Some lip sunscreens are drying, but not this one.

 

Goes on clear, with just a very slight shine.  Lasts for a while.

 

I wore it while boating on a very sunny and windy day - no sun burn and no dry lips later!

What is the sunscreen ingredient in it to make it "spf 15"? Unless they are estimating that one/some of the butters have spf ....? I dont see any chemical or physical screens in it.
Hi Fawnie -
Here's the full list of ingredients:
Active Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (5.5%) Inactive Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) (Shea Butter), Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed) Oil (Castor), Lanolin, Beeswax (Apis Mellifera), Capric/Caprylic Stearic Triglyceride (Coconut Oil), Polyglyceryl 3 Beeswax, Flavor, Lanolin Wax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter (Cocoa), Silica (Mineral), Garcinia Indica Seed Butter (Kokum), Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Oil (Mango), Shorea Stenoptera Butter (Illipe), Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E) (Vitamin E), Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (Sunflower), Polyhydroxystearic Acid (Vegetable derived), Ammonium Glycyrrhizate (from Licorice Root), Lycium Barbarum (Goji) Fruit Extract (Goji Berry)
This version has zinc in it. It looks like they recently changed the formula to be SPF30 and increased the zinc to 7.5%. But also changed it from a tube to a container where you need to stick your finger in it (I hate those!). Not sure I'll want to try this version as I really prefer tubes.
Here's a link to the new one:
