A gel-like balm which instantly melts into an oil on the lips, feeding them with essential nourishment to help visibly restore and repair the lip barrier. Mutiny provides both instant and long-lasting hydration, leaving the lips nourished, replenished and moisturised. The lip balm gives a slight refreshing tingle upon application, with an incredible, indulgent lemongrass natural fragrance.
|How it works
The lip skin differs greatly to facial skin; it has a much thinner barrier function and therefore struggles to retain hydration. Mutiny uses natural squalane to nourish and protect the lip skin. Squalane is chemically almost identical to squalene, a natural part of the skin’s sebum and therefore gives the lips a skin-like protection level that prevents moisture from escaping. Sea buckthorn oil infuses the lips with a full omega profile, helping to restore the lip’s natural lipid barrier, keeping hydration locked in tight. This incredible plant-sourced oil supports the skin’s natural healing, to visibly recover sore, chapped lips. The nourishing formula also features multi-molecular weight hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate every layer of the lip skin.

Expert Knowledge STRAIGHT FROM THE LAB ‘Squalane is almost chemically identical to squalene, a molecule which makes up about 12% of our sebum. It works as a protective, moisturising barrier over the skin to lock in hydration. The difference between squalene and squalane is reactivity; squalene has reactive double bonds which in skincare can oxidise, block pores and cause blemishes. Squalane, however, is entirely unreactive on the skin and non-comedogenic. It is able to penetrate into the natural lipids of the skin, absorbing effortlessly and replenishing the skin’s natural barrier. The result; visibly soft, supple and smooth skin.’ Daniel Isaacs, Formulation and Development Director
