What are Multi-Balm Stick Benefits?

While not an entirely new invention, the multi-balm stick has gained traction in the past few years. The product was set to have gained success and popularity even prior to the pandemic when several industries were turned upside down. For some people, they took this extra time to learn how to take care of their skin more effectively and optimize their routine. This is where the multi-balm stick came into the equation.


Particularly in Korea, the multi-balm stick was specially made relevant once the term “untact beauty,” became commonplace in the early months of the pandemic. This is a Korean saying that combined the prefix “-un” and “contact.” With the multi-balm stick, you didn’t have to use your hands to apply moisturizer to your face. It really couldn’t have launched at a better time.

Okay, it’s clear that it’s successful, trendy, and one of the hottest new products out on the market even today. So, what is this best-seller that everyone from Ava Max to Doja Cat
is obsessing over and adding to their skincare routines?

Benefits of the Multi-Balm Stick

Multi-balm sticks are quite simply oversized lip balms that are applicable to the facial region, as well as your forehead, neck, cuticles, etc. As mentioned before, a vital asset of these products is that you don’t have to use your dirty hands to touch your face and apply to your skin. If you’ve been running around all day, this is the last thing you want to do. With these sticks, you can rub them on the area you want to hydrate or moisturize and your job is done.

  • Do You See the Results?

For best results, these products are recommended to be used daily and consistently. In just under three seconds of application to the face, these sticks are immediately able to restore skin elasticity. There is no doubt you will realize why so many have fallen in love with this product once you apply it for yourself.

  • It’s Convenient/No Mess

Aside from not having to use your fingers to apply the product, these items are convenient to travel with and are portable for reapplying throughout the day. Multi-balm sticks are generally much cleaner than other products on the market, leaving less mess behind on your face and penetrating faster to see better results. With more people wearing masks in the pandemic while still also maintaining some makeup use, these are essential tools to carry with you to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.

  • How the Ingredients Work

So what are the ingredients found in multi-balm sticks? We recommend the Dēpology Moisturizing Caviar Multi-Balm Stick as a notable introduction to the world of multi-balm skincare. Our unique formula, crafted in the heart of Seoul amid the Korean skincare industry, is guaranteed to keep your skin hydrated and taken care of throughout a day of work and leisure activities.


Ingredients in Caviar Multi Balm Stick

Lithospermum erythrorhizon root extract

Commonly referred to as “purple gromwell,” this plant has been cultivated in eastern Asia for centuries and provides many benefits to our multi-balm products. This root extract works to retain moisture within the skin, as our body is fighting numerous external agents throughout the day.

Cacao Seeds/Cocoa Seed Butter

You might recognize cocoa butter, which is commonly found in many body lotions. This ingredient is rich in fatty acids, which are polyunsaturated fats that are the building blocks for healthy cell membranes. They assist in producing the skin’s natural barrier against external agents, nourishing and moisturizing the skin, and improving skin elasticity as we age.


Fermented garcinia cambogia

Made out of southeast Asian fruits, the fermentation from this ingredient allows for deeper penetration of the skin. This way, the products you apply onto your face don’t quickly fade away, canceling out your skincare routine. While hardly used in skincare, we take advantage of its benefits of being within a geographical radius of the plant’s growth.


This fat which naturally occurs in our skin cells greatly assists in fighting the aging process. As we get older and the skin loses its natural moisturizing component, it’s up to us to keep that process going. This ingredient is found in several serums, toners, and even make-up to help firm and strengthen the skin’s barrier.

Without fighting the aging process or external factors that contribute to aging, our skin gets drier and flakier. As a result, this leads to more fine lines and wrinkles from the toll that has been taken upon the skin’s protective barrier.

Black Caviar

While it may sound unusual, there are many benefits to applying caviar extract to the skin. Not only does it increase skin moisture/hydration levels, but it can also plump fine lines/aging signs and help combat inflammation and redness.

Another benefit of Caviar extract is that it can be a resolution for oxidative stress, carrying antioxidant characteristics. Oxidative stress is an occurrence that is a result of the body’s inability to detoxify and fight the damage done to the skin.


This is a natural antioxidant that is found in many skincare products due to its effectiveness in anti-aging. It works in just about every category imaginable, including decreasing signs of wrinkles and scars, reversing skin damage from the sun’s UV rays, fading freckles, lessening skin pigmentation, and combating free radicals that penetrate the skin as we go about our day.

Conclusion : What Are the Benefits of Multi-Balm Sticks?

Our goal is to heal from within, the Black Caviar multi-balm stick being no exception. Its powerful ingredients work together to help combat multiple signs of aging, such as crow’s feet, smile lines, 11 lines, and the delicate area around the eyes, which can appear baggier with age.

Aside from being easy to travel with, our sticks are applicable for users of all skin types, allowing for a worry-free experience and fewer trial runs. By stimulating collagen production, fine lines and wrinkles are ultimately faded, dry skin gets hydrated, and inflammation/redness is treated.

There are dozens of multi-balm products out there in the Korean skincare market in the past several years, with no intention of this trend going away anytime soon. If anything, it has just led to further innovation and speeded up the industry to keep producing even more efficient products for our busy lives.
