“This potent blend helps nourish and smoothen lips, and reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines.”
– Laura Xiao, Henné Organics founder
EXPERT TIPS FROM THE FOUNDER:
- Gently shake bottle prior to use. Apply 2-3 layers onto the lips. Wait a few minutes for the serum to fully absorb into the lips before using other products. If your lips are still soaked after 5 minutes, you’ve applied too much.
- For best results, use twice per day, once in the morning and once in the evening. For evenings, it’s best to follow the Lip Serum with a lip balm or lip mask.
- Works great as a primer for lip color!
Please note that the Lip Serum is mainly intended to help smoothen the lips and reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines and is not a replacement for lip balm. Think of how a face serum is used (first serum, then moisturizer).

Can you give us some insight on the ingredient formulation process?
Every ingredient was carefully selected for the Lip Serum’s primary focus: smoothening the lips and reducing the appearance of lip lines. And there are absolutely no filler ingredients in this exquisite serum. We use organic Rosehip oil as a base oil and the serum includes other amazing anti-aging oils such as organic Camellia oil, organic Pomegranate oil, organic Passion Fruit oil and organic Argan oil.
What is the star ingredient in the product and why?
Definitely the Arctic Cloudberry Seed Oil – one of the key ingredients in our Lip Serum, these orange jewels can be found in the northern regions of Arctic countries and are a popular delicacy in Scandinavia. Although extremely difficult to cultivate, cloudberries can actually survive in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius, one of the reasons why these incredible berries have so many benefits. Cloudberries are ultra rich in vitamin C (which helps collagen production and helps neutralize free radicals in the skin) and essential fatty acids (which help bolster the lips’ protective barrier and help retain moisture in the lips.
