New and improved 100% NATURAL lip Jao with the tag line, “Specially formulated for lip balm snobs”, should read “specially formulated for all”. Jao is made with 34% shea butter, is a long lasting petro-chemical free formula, and contains lysine, calendula and chamomile oil extracts. The new formula does not claim an SPF rating of 15 as the old formula did, more like an SPF 8, but it’s therefore more accurate (See more details on the SPF rating below). And to top it off the company was started by a Father & daughter team, amazing, in Pennsylvania where all the products are formulated without dyes, petroleum or artificial fragrances.
It’s non-greasy and when my lips are particularly chapped I even put a light layer under my lipstick. I say light because due to the Zinc Oxide it does leave your lips a bit white. Just go easy on the application. I also like to put it on before I go to bed for an overnight chapped lip healer.
Check out all of the amazing natural ingredients notably rosehip and jojoba which are rich in vitamins A, E, and C.

From Jao Ltd website: *Our LipJao™ is not SPF rated because the FDA has made it difficult (expensive) for small companies to test. Since our focus as a company is to make 100% natural products, we did not want to make a chemical sunscreen anymore. Instead, we reformulated our LipJaoto include 34% Shea Butter as well as meadowfoam seed oil which both have a natural sunscreen property. We also did not want to make a pure white lip balm so added just 4% Zinc Oxide which IS, in fact, sunscreen. While we cannot claim a definite SPF number, we can approximate that LipJao’s rating is SPF-8.
