Don't just lube your lips . . . heal them! A longstanding lip balm "addiction" is what led our founder, Shalley, to search long and hard for a natural ingredient that provides lasting relief for chapped and dehydrated lips. In fact, our brand was launched because of the eventual discovery of such an ingredient -- and that ingredient is tallow!
Ever noticed how petroleum based lip products (Chapstick, Carmex, etc.) feel so soothing at first and then must be constantly reapplied? That's because those products degrade your lips . . . by design. That makes you a perpetual buyer of these products. Some of the natural alternatives, including those that are beeswax based, yield only paltry results when it comes to lip care, as was experienced by our founder.
Why do we believe we have a truly great lip balm? Tallow, in combination with other deeply nourishing animal fats, is your answer to years of fruitlessly searching through lip products that don't work. This practical blend gives lasting moisture to your lips, and thanks to lipids that are similar to that in our own human skin, it actually heals.
If you purchased our Lip Balms in the past you may have read about our founder's experience with a popular lip balm brand that uses beeswax as a main ingredient. She found that over the years beeswax formed too much of a barrier, leading to dryness and the perpetual need for re-application, not much different than petroleum based products! As a result, she has avoided including beeswax in our formulations . . . until now. She found a very special beeswax she loves, and because of its exceptional quality and the small percentage used, is now adding it to our lip balm formulation. It adds body to our lip balms, reducing the speed at which they melt, and increasing shelf life.
Instead of using potent essential oils, we scent our lip balms with 100% organic flavor extracts. These flavor oils are distilled without anything artificial, synthetic, nor toxic. We hope you like our little "cocktail party" of flavors (including one unflavored) as much as we do. Because these flavor oils are completely natural, you may find the scent is faint or gradually dissipates.
We at last arrived at an ingredient list for our lip balms that is simple and practical: Grassfed tallow, grassfed ghee, beeswax, lanolin wax, and organic flavor.
In keeping with our goal for more sustainable packaging, we are now using 30% recycled plastic tubes. We tried to switch over to a biodegradable cardboard tube for our lip balms, but find they don't hold up after being in our pocket or purse for as long as we would like.
100% Organic Flavors include:
Grasshopper (mint chocolate).
