Compostable Packaging

This product is packaged or shipped in materials that can be composted in home systems or industrial facilities.

Cruelty Free

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

    Great Eco-Friendly Packaging

    angie.l.sewell (verified owner)

    I love the eco-friendly packaging on this lip balm. Itapplies a little bit ‘chunky’, but soon smooths out with your body heat. I do seem to be going through it quickly, although I have been reaching for it nightly.

    Bare is Great

    Ereka (verified owner)

    I read the reviews about how small it is, and the fact that it’s overpriced, but decided to give it a go anyway. This is my first zero waste lip balm. My previous lip balm was only 4g for almost $4, so I do agree that this lip balm is a bit overpriced, but I would honestly purchase it again. The lip balm I was using had a specific finish that I like, and this almost gives me that exact same finish, which is hard for me to find. The finish I’m talking about is basically clear lip gloss finish without using an actual lip gloss. It can get a little messy to use, so that’s something I had to get used to. It smells nice, but doesn’t taste great. Neither does my previous plastic lip balm, so this isn’t a deal breaker for me. The fact that it’s plastic free and the finish is what I like has completely sold me. It is also moisturizing, so I’d say it’s worth it. I will definitely repurchase once I’m running low, and I will probably try the other colors as well.

    Great scent/ neutral taste and feels great, which is really all I’m looking for. It is a bit small, but if it can last me at least 3-4 months I’ll consider it worth the money.

    Wish I had noticed how small it was...

    Oscar (verified owner)

    Can’t complain too much about how small this because the info is there, but oh my god is this small. I bought this as a gift, at least expecting it to be as big as my other low-waste lip balms but it was far smaller for far less content.

    Ridiculously overpriced but feels nice

    Annie (verified owner)

    This product has 4 ingredients (wax, oil, scent, vitamin) and is about half the size of a regular size chapstick so it’s kind of crazy to me that its $12 each for something you could make at home. That being said if you’re willing to pay for the convienience- it feels nice.
