Winter brings with it the coldest months of the year, and one of the first areas to dry out as the cold sets in are our lips. This is due to the fact that the delicate skin around the lips has a very different makeup than the rest of the face. Lacking hair, sweat or sebaceous glands, lips have a much thinner stratum corneum and therefore a poor barrier function to retain water. This is why lips are extremely susceptible to the environment; dry out very quickly and become chapped very easily. We’ve all experienced never-ending chapped lips in the dead of winter and that’s why you need the best lip balm to see you through the winter season.
Welcome, Mutiny®. Medik8’s very first lip balm; our squalane-based alternative lip balm which takes a different approach to lip care.
The difference between Mutiny and the majority of other lip balms is that it isn’t based on occlusives like petrolatum. While petrolatum, also known as mineral oil, is a good instant-fix for dry lips, it forms a false barrier and doesn’t actually improve the appearance and texture of the lips long-term. This is why you can find yourself constantly applying your lip balm and experiencing no results.
With our first ever Medik8 lip balm, we wanted to take a stand against petrolatum-based lip balms, hence the name ‘Mutiny’. We focused on producing an alternative, squalane-based lip balm which is able to feed the lips with essential emollients for long-lasting hydration.
A gel-like balm which instantly melts into an oil upon application to the lips, Mutiny keeps the lips protected while nourishing them with essential lipids that enhance the skin’s natural barrier. This then gives Mutiny the ability to lock in moisture and leave the lips visibly nourished and replenished.
Discover Mutiny and relieve your lips from the dry vicious cycle.

Based on nourishing, naturally-derived squalane, Mutiny works to nourish the lips, giving them a skin-like protection level. This innovative lip balm is also infused with sea buckthorn oil. One of the only plant sources to have a full omega profile, containing omega 3, 5, 9 and 7, sea buckthorn has incredible properties that help to restore the lip’s natural barrier, holding the hydration locked in tight and therefore supporting the natural healing process of dry or chapped lips. Multi-weight hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, works as a humectant to draw in moisture to the lip surface from the surrounding atmosphere and lower skin layers. Together, these key ingredients give Mutiny a full hydration profile which assists in reviving lips.
Mutiny is ideal to use alongside your Medik8 CSA routine. Simply apply vitamin C plus sunscreen to the face, neck and decolletage and finish off with a layer of Mutiny to protect your lips throughout the day. Don’t forget to reapply throughout the day when needed. In the evening, apply your vitamin A and night time moisturisers, followed by a thick layer of Mutiny as a nourishing overnight lip treatment, for visibly smooth and hydrated lips when you wake up in the morning.
