8 Top Benefits of Eco-Friendly Lip Therapy Balm

Most lip balms contain toxic and hard-to-pronounce ingredients. Not only that, but when you’re done using them, the packaging is unrecyclable and ends up in landfills or polluting our waterways and environment. Our lip therapy balms are made with premium ingredients and plastic-free packaging! Here’s a little more about what makes them special…

1. They contain shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil which naturally moisturizes dry lips.

These delicious-smelling balms keep your pout soft and supple while saving you the discomfort of having that chapped feeling! Each scent also contains Vitamin E, which has powerful regenerative and antioxidant properties. These ingredients give the lip balm a smooth, glide-on texture.

2. Our lip therapy balms are packaged in eco-friendly tubes.

They come in plastic-free, PCW (post-consumer waste) recycled paperboard and you can compost them after use. There’s also no worrying about where your plastic lip balm containers will end up after you’ve thrown them out.

3. We have fully vegan choices!

So many lip balms today contain beeswax, ruling them out as an option for vegans. Instead of beeswax, our vegan lip therapy balms contain candelilla wax so you can use them happy in the knowledge that they’re vegan-safe!

4. Tinted for a touch of color.

If lipstick isn’t your thing, we’ve got something for you. Our tinted Ruby Red Grapefruit provides a touch of color without excessive pigment, so you can go about your day without worrying about smudging.

5. They double as a primer.

These lip therapy balms serve as great lip primers. If you ever have a hard time applying lipstick, a quick layer of lip balm will do the trick. It provides a smooth canvas, brings out the best in your lipstick, and locks in hydration all day.

6. Each one smells amazing.

With scents like Coastal Berry, Cali Orange, Grapefruit, Lavender Lemon, Pacific Peppermint, and Ruby Red, you’ll be reaching for your lip therapy balm as often as you can! Our lip balms are scented using wholesome and natural ingredients like essential oils and nut oils, so you don’t have to worry about long-winded ingredient lists.

Our Lavender Lemon lip therapy balm even contains St John’s Wort, which is proven to help quieten the mind while stimulating the senses!

7. You can save baby turtles!

Not only are our lip therapy balms not bad for the planet, but we’re also doing something positive each time a lip balm is sold! Through giving back and donating to sea turtle conservation, a portion of proceeds from every lip therapy balm sold saves one baby sea turtle hatchling!

8. Handmade in California

These lip therapy balms are hand crafted with love in California, USA.

Our lip therapy balms will keep your lips feeling soft and moisturized and your heart happy in the knowledge you’re helping baby turtles. What’s not to love? Get your lip therapy balm here.
