Certified to National Organic Standards our lip balms are based on pure organic oils and beeswax free of petrochemically modified ingredients. The organic avocado oil and beeswax provide excellent lip protection while the organic jojoba and hemp oils assist moisturization. Only the finest organic essential oils are used for fragrance.
Although our line is otherwise vegan, we do use certified organic beeswax in the lip balm. We could not find a certified organic plant-based wax, and we could not find an alternative that can substitute for the amazing qualities of beeswax: based on our experience we formulated the original lip balms with just avocado oil and beeswax, because beeswax has natural antibacterial and sunblock qualities and provides a superior barrier to keep moisture in. We buy our certified organic beeswax from New Zealand, and we checked to make sure that the queens are not killed each year as happens sometimes with conventional beekeeping to maximize yields.
Lip balm should be used even when you're using lipstick, it fills in cracks and makes a even surface for the next product being placed on the lips.
The difference between regular lip balm and organic is that organic products are produced without the use of chemicals, pesticides and other additives. The benefits of using an organic lip balm are numerous, including the fact that organic products are free of hidden costs, good on the environment, filled with nutrients that are good for your skin and they help support communities.
