Due to winter temperature fluctuations in transit, the cocoa butter can come out of temper and leave a fine "frost" or bumpy texture. Any texture changes are superficial and the product should melt upon contact with the lips. Most continue to arrive in perfect condition but we are nevertheless offering them at 50% off to reduce your investment should they arrive imperfect. Because we are continually told NOURISH is the most effective and “best” lip balm ever, we’ll continue to provide them as is until out of stock, and it is our hope that they will arrive in perfect condition. All purchases are final sale. Thank you for your understanding.
Apply as needed to nourish and protect dry, chapped and cracked lips. Contains anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and antioxidant-rich ingredients. Regular application of NOURISH may help protect against UV and other environmental damage.
Shades (as pictured from left to right):
LAGUNA - coral pink with zinc
LAC ROSE - sheer rose shimmer with copper undertones
ATACAMA - mauve mocha with zinc
DENALI - untinted
TEKAPO - cool berry
Our new and improved packaging is made from 100% recycled aluminum. Providing a final product that is recyclable is one thing, but having product made with recycled material is even better as it actively offsets waste before it even reaches the customer. For every lip balm sold, 1.5 aluminum cans are diverted from the waste stream. This packaging option is not perfect but it is for us the best available solution as it allows us to not just depend on product “end of life”, but use a component that diverts waste at the “beginning of life”.

Cocoa butter can create "crystal blooms" with fluctuations in heat. Warming the product on lips will help redistribute the crystals and smooth the appearance. Thank you for your understanding the challenges of using purely natural materials.
Like with all our ingredients we are incredibly selective in our sourcing to ensure all ingredients support planetary health and worker welfare - it’s why our products are not cheap - they have less hidden cost to people and the planet. Only one product contains mica and that is our new LAC ROSE which has been supplied in partnership with a pigment supplier who cares as much as we do. We pay a premium on this ingredient to help collectively support the costs of 3rd party verification. They supply us documentation but of course cannot themselves be on the ground 24/7. Nothing is a guarantee but they have established relationships exclusively with mines that share our values. We are considering switching to synthesized micas to mitigate all potential concern but in the meantime please know that we would never support any operation that employs children or anyone in an unsafe working condition.
As a business that champions environmental stewardship and members of 1% For The Planet, we are delighted to share that we will be using profits from the sale of these lip balms to further our financial support of wilderness preservation organizations, such as The Wilderness Society.
Our admiration and respect of the wild is evident in the naming of the NOURISH lip balm colorways. The untinted balm DENALI, is named after the highest mountain peak in North America. Our dusty nude is named ATACAMA for the famous Chilean desert, and our berry tone, is named TEKAPO, for the Lake in New Zealand known for its abundant blooms of lupine flowers. LAC ROSE, a dusty rose with copper shimmer is named after the salt lake in Senegal that is pink due to the presence of Dunaliella salina algae. And our pale peach, fortified with zinc is named LAGUNA after Laguna Colorada, a shallow salt lake in the southwest of the altiplano of Bolivia. Folklore suggests the water is actually the blood of the gods, though scientists believe the colour comes from the algae and rich minerals in the water.
