It may come as a surprise that some lip balm isn’t vegan. Certain brands still use animal-derived substances like beeswax and lanolin (grease from cruelly obtained sheep’s wool) to make their lip products. Sheep and bees need their wool and wax way more than our lips do. The good news is that there are tons of balm brands that make their products without exploiting animals. Here are PETA’s favorite vegan and cruelty-free lip balms:
