Vegan Sunscreen Lipbalm?

I've found plenty of vegan sunscreen but so far no lip balm that doesn't contain beeswax or lanolin. My lips get blisters I can tell when they get sunburned. I suppose I can just use the sunscreen on my lips too but it kinda tastes nasty. BLeh. The only one I have found is SUNBUM but it has quite a high rating on skin deep database.

I use Soft Lips lip balm - most are SPF 15 or 20 (just make sure). However, I'm new to this vegan thing and I'm not savvy on ingredients and stuff. Here's the list... I think it's okay, but can someone check?

Active Ingredients: Dimethicone 2% – Skin protectant Octinoxate 7.5% – Sunscreen Octisalate 3% – Sunscreen Oxybenzone 3% – Sunscreen Inactive Ingredients: ozokerite, squalane, ethylhexyl palmitate, petrolatum, myristyl myristate, myristyl lactate, flavor, cetyl alcohol, myristyl laurate, myristyl alcohol, BHT, menthol, tocopheryl acetate [vitamin E]

I also found this blog post, which seems to assure that their products are not tested on animals, and do not contain animal products. So there you go!

What's lanolin? I didn't realize it was an animal ingredient.

It's collected from sheep's wool. It's a wax secreted by sebaceous glands of wooly critters. Kinda like the oil human scalps give off.

I was looking for something for chapped libs just the other day. I gave up. I'll check online if they get more chapped.
