N O U R I S H lip balm
Apply as needed to nourish and protect dry, chapped and cracked lips. Contains anti-inflammatory, antifungal, anti-bacterial and antioxidant-rich ingredients. Regular application of NOURISH may help protect against UV and other environmental damage.
As a business that champions environmental stewardship 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.
Please note, a few DENALI remain in our recyclable plastic packaging. When we run out it will then be available in our new and improved packaging made from 100% recycled aluminum, at our new price. 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”.INGREDIENTS: Theobroma cacao (COCOA) bean butter*, Cera alba (BEESWAX)*, Cucurbita pepo (PUMPKIN) seed oil*, Mangifera indica (MANGO) kernel butter*, Helianthus annuus (SUNFLOWER) seed oil*, Simmondsia chinensis (JOJOBA) seed oil*, Ricinus communis (CASTOR) seed oil*, D-alpha tocopheryl acetate (VITAMIN E, non- GMO),Lonicera caprifolium (Italian HONEYSUCKLE) flower extract, Lonicera japonica (Japanese HONEYSUCKLE) flower extract, Calendula officinalis (CALENDULA) flower CO2 extract, Mentha x piperita L.

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.
