For us, new offerings don't come often. A lot of care and consideration goes into everything we make. Outside of quality and efficacy, our thinking is always about how can this serve multiple purposes? How can this benefit many? How can this make life more simple?
Introducing our newest creation... The Stick!
The Stick has been in the making for longer than we’d like to admit. We've always loved the ease, versatility and simplicity of a stick, but how do we do one our way? Knowing that and figuring out the logistics weren't easy.
Formulating a vegan stick was our first hurdle. Most lip and skincare sticks rely on paraffin wax which is derived from petroleum. The most widely used natural alternative to paraffin wax is beeswax – but beeswax also isn't vegan.
After some searching, we discovered candelilla wax – derived from the leaves of the small shrub native to northern Mexico. It's a wonderful vegetable wax that has many healing properties – including being known to help reduce stretch marks, wrinkles, and age spots.
The rest of the ingredients in The Stick are as close to The Balm as we could get. Kokum Butter, Mango Butter, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Borage and Moringa make for a recipe that is deeply nourishing with proven benefits.
Our essential oil blend is our signature scent that consists of a gentle blend of peppermint, lavender, grapefruit, carrot seed, palo santo, frankincense, patchouli and sandalwood.
The packaging for The Stick was also a big challenge. One of our biggest considerations is how we as a company grow responsibly. Most tubes that effectively house all natural oils are made from plastic so they aren't earth friendly at all. We were finally able to find something free of plastic. Our tubes for The Stick are made from 100% compostable paper and can simply go in your curbside bin!
We're super excited to offer this new product to you! Here are some of the ways you can enjoy The Stick – liberally of course!
Moisturize and heal extremely chapped or dry lips.
Gently apply from head to toe and anywhere that needs a moisture fix.
Use during the day to add a touch of dewy glow on cheeks, lips, and more. It also helps keep eyebrows tame!
