What makes a good lip balm? In my opinion, I prefer plant based, so our lip balms are all essential oil based - we often get asked for various flavours that don't exist in natural form, .All of our lip balms use pure essential oils ( that we source ourselves to make sure they are the highest quality we can find) and are 100% plant-based.
There are few things that really irritate me. Buying a lip balm and smoothing it on your lips only to feel grittiness - do you know what I mean? There is no reason for that silliness (unless of course you are wanting an exfoliating lip massage.)
We're really happy to have been approved by PETA as cruelty free beauty, we do have a lip balm with beeswax in it which is the only item that isn't vegan. Probably when we finish up the Rose lip balm we'll switch it over to vegan. We also don't use any nut oils in our lip balm and as I explained to the nice lady at the fair, yes we know how wonderful almond oil is, but too many of our clients have nut allergies.
We offer choice and experience and our organic lip balms currently come in 2 scents (we will be adding to the line soon). We have Surf's Up Mint (with a lovely cooling mint blend), & Tofino Morning Chai (a beautiful chai blend that reminds one of sipping a Chai latte and staring at the ocean). Watch this space to hear about a previous favourite returning with a new twist.
And packaging. People buy products with their eyes first, so we’ve always used tubes, different shapes and colours, but we stick with the tubes as we like to be able to roll up our lip balm and apply it to our lips. Again, its preference – what do you prefer for lip balm, tube or pot?
