In this climate, it's not at all unusual for little ones - especially teethers, to get very chapped, dry lips and faces.
You need to very very careful of with what exactly is in the lip balm or moisturizers you're putting on your baby. Because of their size and their skin to weight ratio toxins and chemicals have a much greater effect of babies and little children. And yes, your skin and body care products are frighteningly polluted.
Carcinogens, hormone disrupters and even heavy metals have been found in baby care products of large "trusted" companies. Contrary to belief, the FDA does virtually no overseeing of the cosmetics and skin care industry and their are no federal laws regarding safe ingredients.
Aquifor for instance, is full of petrochemicals (carcinogens).

All of this, and a battle with my own son's eczema as a baby, prompted me to create a line of all natural - food grade ingredients - body care products. The beauty is, they work better than chemically laden, mainstream, products.
Our lip balm and Skin Healer would both be perfect for your baby's dry chapped lips. Our products reach deep into the tissues, soothing, healing and moisturizing. The ingredients have antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Because we use only whole plant and food ingredients, they are very effective, and extremely gentle.
With babies and little children, whatever you put on their faces will end up in their mouths. Our products are just as good for them on the inside as it is for her skin. I'm pretty sure that's not true of Burts Bees, and certainly not anything made by Johnson & Johnson.
