Just the Goods' always strives to offer the best possible formulas, and this means an ongoing commitment to research, development, and testing. As such, I'm thrilled to offer a vegan lip balm formula that is creamier, more moisturizing, and longer lasting both on lips *and* in storage thanks to the perfect ratio of creamy cocoa butter blended moisture-rich sea buckthorn oil among other nourishing vegetable-based oils.
These handcrafted products are made without artificial preservatives. To protect their integrity and promote longevity, please store in a cool dark place and seal tightly between uses as heat and sunlight will cause premature deterioration.
Each tube is 4.44 ml / 0.15 oz. Lip balms are priced and sold individually; image shows each flavor, but this listing is not for a set.
cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, hippophae rhamnoides (seabuckthorn) oil, essential oil for flavour*, tocopherol (soy derived vitamin e) + essential oils as outlined below:
* cardamom lime: elettaria cardamomum (cardamom) oil, citrus aurantifolia (lime) oil
* lavender: lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil
* peppermint: mentha piperita (peppermint) oil
* sweet orange: citrus sinensis (sweet orange) oil
Layer this lip balm extra thick before bed for use as an overnight lip mask and wake up to soft, hydrated lips
And... Did you know chronic dry/chapped/peeling lips can be a sign of vitamin and mineral deficiency? Vitamin A, B3, B12 and zinc consumed through food rich in these elements, and/or vegan nutritional supplements, can bring relief from the inside out.
Lip scrub versus lip balm:
Lip balm flavours:
Just the Goods’ lip balm base is made from a diverse assortment of carrier oils including olive oil, cocoa butter, sea buckthorn oil, and castor oil, among others. From a functional perspective, they combine very well to offer rich and long lasting moisture. However, without additional flavouring provided by natural essential oils, the combination of carrier oils doesn't taste particularly yummy. It is for this reason that Just the Goods doesn’t currently offer an unflavoured lip balm option.
Further on the subject of available flavours: Although there have been requests for options such as pomegranate, coconut and cherry, please note that such flavours -- even ones that are derived from natural sources -- still contain ingredients like propylene glycol, which are never included in Just the Goods products.
