5 Unexpected Uses for B3 Lip: More Than a Treatment for Sun-Damaged Skin

B3 Lip is the latest addition to the SolarCareB3 product line and was originally designed as a simple and effective product for sun-damaged lips. However, with its gentle formula of 5% Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), 5% Australian pawpaw and just six other ingredients, it is fast gaining popularity as a multi-purpose product for a range of skin concerns.

Bernier CEO Doug Kelly said while B3 Lip was not intended to be a multi-purpose product, it was not surprising given the versatility of the rest of the SolarCareB3 range.

“We have a variety of multi-purpose moisturisers and an SPF that our customers use on their faces, bodies and hands to target sun damage – in fact, almost everything we have is designed to be versatile,” he said. “So while B3 Lip wasn’t developed as a multi-purpose product, it is very on brand for SolarCareB3 and it’s great seeing people get the most out of our products.”

Here are some of the unexpected ways people are reaping the benefits of B3 Lip:


1. Rough Skin Patches

B3 Lip has a rich, jelly-like texture that combats transepidermal water loss, effectively sealing in moisture and providing relief to dry patches. The combination of gentle exfoliating pawpaw enzymes and moisture-enhancing niacinamide works together harmoniously to restore hydration.

2. Nail Care

Frequent hand-washing and use of sanitisers can leave cuticles and nail beds feeling dry and brittle. B3 Lip contains pawpaw enzymes that can help soften cuticles, while niacinamide and moisturisers support the skin around the nails where dry skin can cause painful hangnails.

3. Post-Treatment Soothing

After undergoing treatments for sun damage or other concerns, the skin deserves gentle care and protection as it heals. Healthcare professionals have come to appreciate B3 Lip’s simple and gentle formula, which aids in supporting their clients’ healing journey. (Please note, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider before using B3 Lip for post-treatment care.)

4. Minor Skin Irritations

The ointment’s soothing and anti-inflammatory properties can bring relief to minor skin irritations such as insect bites or contact rashes. Simply apply a small amount to the affected area and gently massage it in for a soothing effect.

5. Lip Softening and Repair

Last but certainly not least, B3 Lip excels at its primary purpose: softening, soothing and supporting sun-damaged lips. For optimal results, use B3 Lip twice daily for at least three months. Not only does it support sun-damaged skin, but it may also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation.
