Think about how often you lick your lips, eat food or drink from a cup.
Infused with Organic Ginger Essential Oil
Did you know that the lip balms we grew up on were full of artificial flavors and sweeteners? They still are.
Our organic flavors subtlety enhance the rich oils we use, resulting in balms that heal, protect and make your lips kissably smooth and chemical-free.
If you look closely at your tubes, you may see camphor or menthol. They create a tingling feeling. They create a tingling feeling designed to make the user believe their lips are being healed. There is a psychology behind their use. Manufacturers know when users feel tingling, they believe their lip balm is working. In reality, these ingredients have the reverse effect of drying out lips.
With the Natural Tingling Sensation of Organic Peppermint Oil
Organic peppermint essential oil provides plant-based healing for chapped lips.
You may also see phenol on your tube. Phenol is a chemical preservativ'e that plumps lips. How does this pumping occur? By irritating and inflaming. What do you do when your lips are irritated or inflamed? Apply more lip balm. Can you see a cycle that is being created?
We use meadowfoam and chia seed oils because they hydrate and naturally plump with vitamins C, E and Omegas.

Thoughts on petroleum differ, but our pledge to only use plant and Earth-based ingredients is why we will never use these ingredients in any of our products.
