ABOUT THIS ALTERNATIVE PRODUCT RECOMMENDATION

Buck the cold with this cruelty-free, eco-friendly, all-natural, effective and flavored lip protectant/moisturizer that is truly the perfect balm. Made from premium raw, organic-certified and fair trade ingredients this balm is truly a delicious, non-toxic treat for your lips. It imparts a slight rosy tint to better your natural lip color, much like the old standby. Aside from the popular cherry, there are nearly 20 different flavors/variations: from sophisticated flavors like earl grey and chai spice to Lip Smacker®1-like favorites such as root beer; and variations of a night balm to an SPF 15 balm. Pure essential oils infused with raw seeds, pods, fruit zests, barks and roots impart flavors and natural color; other flavors are organically derived flavor compounds that are distilled or extracted. Instead of beeswax or petroleum, the balm uses candelilla wax combined with raw/cold pressed oils , such as olive, jojoba, and almond, and butters  which act as a deep emollient to preserve smoothness and softness instead of temporarily masking dryness on the surface which is typical of so many other balms. The tube is mindfully designed as oval shaped to better stay in pockets and stand out in purses. Not too sweet, glossy or smelly it has a comfortable texture on the lips that endures. The balms are typically shipped less than a week after production enabling maximum shelf life and have a price point comparable to drugstore buys. All this will make you say, “Hurr… [you guessed it]…
