Created by renowned Beverly Hills Dermatologist, Stuart H. Kaplan, M.D., the Perfect Pout Lip Collection is the first complete anti-aging regimen for the lips. Dr. Kaplan created these lip products to address his patients’ concerns about their lips: fine lines and wrinkles around the lips, loss of fullness, loss of color, chapped and flaky skin, as well as sun damage and skin cancer.
If you look at the balms, lipsticks and glosses on the market today, you will see the majority of them do not offer SPF sun protection. In addition, they contain castor oil or petroleum jelly (petrolatum) as their main ingredients, which actually amplifies sun damage to the delicate skin on the lips.
The other two most commonly used lip products that are not good for the lips are plumpers and lip scrubs. Lip plumpers use irritating ingredients to cause your lips to burn and swell. The burning and stinging sensation is uncomfortable, and will cause lips to become sensitive with long term use. Lip scrubs are popular for removing dry, flaky skin off the lips. However, they use harsh particles, such as sugar or ground shells, to scrape off dry skin. Lips will feel smooth at first, but will soon develop even more dry, flaky patches of skin to heal the abrasions caused by the scrub. It creates a vicious cycle of scrubbing and scraping the lips.
Dr. Kaplan spent 5 years researching the best organic extracts and anti-aging ingredients for the lips, and formulated them in a base that is free of parabens, sulfates, gluten, castor oil and petrolatum. The result is a collection of healthy lip products that create softer, fuller, more beautiful lips – naturally.
