Colorless but Flavored
We have chosen not to color or tint our lip balm, at this time. Each balm is made of ingredients that are considered pure, raw or organic in their original state. Any deviation in color is due to natural variations. We have chosen to use edible candy flavorings and pure essential oils which have some colors to them, but usually result in slight color variations.
Our ingredients are natural. We do not use preservatives or hardeners. Like a chocolate bar in a hot car it will soften or liquefy. Simply turn the tube upright and place in a cold area to cool quickly to avoid lumps or grit. Also, in a cold area it will feel less smooth. Our lip balm performs excellent in comfortable conditions. Our lid is snug to reduce the chance of leakage. Should you have any problems we will do our best to make it right.
I love the freedom to be creative and make things I like for myself, but feel so humbled and grateful when someone says how much they like what I made and how it has brought them joy but especially when it has helped them for various skin sensitive situations, which I myself experience and understand.
