What is the Best Eczema Lip Balm? – 5 Best Eczema Lip Balms Reviewed
Are you looking for the best eczema lip balm? Well, look no further! Below I’ll be reviewing my favourite top 5 eczema lip balms along with a bonus! I am very selective when it comes to putting any type of creams, lotions, balms on my skin. After going through topical steroid withdrawal, I don’t take any more risks. I research the company and what kind of ingredients they use. I make sure the ingredients used in these products are natural, safe, and non-toxic.
Without further ado, below are my top 5 favorites!
1. Kalaya Naturals Wonder Salve
Why?: I love Kalaya’s Naturals Wonder Salve because it’s been formulated with ingredients that are anti-bacterial and soothing to heal and protect your skin. This is an all-natural remedy that has been made with Tea Tree Oil. It works great for rashes, bumps, scrapes, bruises, and a lip balm. I’ve used this product on my eczema patches on my body as well and it works great! Even though it doesn’t explicitly say it’s for eczema, when you take a closer look at the ingredients, it makes it a great case to be used as an eczema lip balm.
Ingredients: Rice Bran Oil, Beeswax, Olive Fruit Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Shea Butter, Emu Oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Thyme Oil, Palmitic Acid, Tocopherol
Price: $10-14 CAD/USD
Final Thoughts: I honestly wish they made a bigger size of this. I know it’s intended use is for a lip balm but it honestly works great all over the body. The price is a little expensive for the amount you get but it’s a high-quality product that will work great for your lips. The only downside is that it is not in a stick but in a small glass bottle.
2. Badger Balm Classic Lip Balm (4 Pack)
Why?: Badger Balm is one of my favorite skincare brands. All their balms use natural and nontoxic ingredients. They are USDA Certified Organic as well. Their lip balms are based in organic extra virgin olive oil and beeswax. They’ve also added ingredients such as Seabuckthorn, Rosehip extracts, and Aloe Vera Extra to support, protect and heal the lips.
Ingredients (Base): Because this product comes in 4 different flavors, I’m only going to list the base ingredients: Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Castor Oil, Organic Aloe Extract, and CO2 Extracts of *Organic Rosemary, Organic Seabuckthorn &Organic Rosehip,
Price: $18-20 CAD/USD
Final Thoughts: You can’t go wrong with Badger Balm’s Classic Lip Balm if you are looking for an eczema lip balm. Even though it’s not specifically formulated for eczema, it uses a lot of beneficial ingredients for eczema. This one is in a stick format if that’s what you are looking for.
3. Province Apothecary Repairing + Conditioning Lip Balm
Why?: I know I keep saying this but Province Apothecary is also one of my favorite brands. The founder of Province Apothecary herself had eczema and was inspired to create skin-friendly products using natural ingredients. All of their products are free of fillers, pesticides, dyes, petroleum, synthetic chemicals + fragrances, GMOs, and animal testing. This blend uses Calendula to hydrate dry and cracked skin. They’ve included Lavender to soothe and repair your lips while Peppermint is added to bring blood to the surface of your lips to support the skin cells.
Ingredients: Sunflower seed oil, Beeswax, Calendula oil, GMO-free Vitamin E, and therapeutic essential oils of Lavender*, Rosemary, Peppermint and Myrrh.

Final Thoughts: This is another great product if you are looking just for an eczema lip balm. It comes in a stick format so you can take it anywhere you go. It is expensive for a lip balm but they use high-quality ingredients that are safe for your skin. So it’s worth the investment.
4. Shoosha Baby Organic Eczema Healing Balm
Why?: This balm has been specifically formulated for eczema and is in a stick format! Win-win! Not only does it protect, soothe and provide relief from eczema, but it will also help with rashes, itching, insect bites, and poison ivy. The great thing about this product is, it is also food grade which means that it’s so pure and safe, you could eat it. Whoa! Now that’s what you call skin safe. All the ingredients are beneficial for the skin so it will definitely provide the relief you are looking for. It’s not marketed as an eczema lip balm because it can be used anywhere you have eczema patches.

Final Thoughts: It’s an excellent and safe product that will definitely help heal your eczema. Even though it’s in a stick format, you could also use it on eczema patches if need be. However, it is pricey for the amount you get but with reason. If you want something of the highest quality for yourself or your baby, and the price is not an issue, this is what you’ve been looking for.
5. Nova Scotia Fisherman Rescue Balm
Why?: Nova Scotia’s Fisherman Rescue balm is an all-natural balm made with raw ingredients. They use a blend of Chamomile, Nova Scotia Sea Kelp and Aloe extract to soothe and relieve irritated skin. Even though it isn’t formulated specifically for eczema, it has all the ingredients needed for an eczema lip balm or skin balm. They also do not test on animals, petroleum, and paraben-free ingredients.

Final Thoughts: Even though this isn’t a lip balm per se, it checks off all the boxes in my books. It’s not in a stick format but it’s still small enough to take on the go. You can use it on your hands and body if you’d like to. I like that it’s budget-friendly while still using natural ingredients. If you want to try something different, this one for you!
BONUS: Province Apothecary Healing Eczema Balm
Why?: Another great product from Province Apothecary. I know this is about lip balms but I could not leave this out for my eczema warriors. Even though it’s not considered an eczema lip balm, it is still a skin balm. It is specifically made for eczema using organic ingredients. It’s free from steroids, hydrocortisone, parabens, alcohol, petroleum, synthetic fragrance, and toxic ingredients. It uses a combination of Collodial Oatmeal for itchiness and inflammation, Help oil for hydration, Zinc to heal damaged skin and Tumeric for swelling and itching.

Final Thoughts: This is a great product to use on your face, neck, hands, and lips. Even an eczema patch on your body. I just wish for the price point the product could be a little bit bigger. It’s also not in a stick format but can still easily be carried in your jacket or thrown into your bag.
Healing Doesn’t Have to be Expensive
I know how much money it costs to buy creams, lotions, and supplements. I’m always trying to find ways to save money, especially when I need it for my skin because we all know it quickly adds up. The product itself can be pricey but then you have to pay taxes and then shipping. By then, I’m questioning is the product worth it?!
One tip I use to save money is using Rakuten. It’s a cashback website that gives you anywhere from 1% and more depending on where you shop. All you need to do is find your favorite shop and then buy as you normally would. I promise it’s not scammy whatsoever. I have no vested interest in this company nor do I make money from it. We both get $30 if you sign up using this link. We both know that we’ll be using this $30 buy something for our eczema! Happy shopping!
Beyond the Balm
You might be wondering will this cure eczema on my lips? It might. But it also might not. These are all excellent products to keep eczema at bay so it doesn’t get worse.
However, while you use this to help your skin, you should also be taking a look at your nutrition. This is another key avenue to provide your skin and body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to heal. Another place to look at is your lifestyle. You’ll need to take a step back and evaluate, how is your lifestyle contributing to your eczema.
The hardest but simplest thing you can do is focus on the foods you eat and the thoughts you consume. When we start making changes to eat healthier and think positively, healing can happen.
