This delicious lip balm derives its yummy chocolatey aroma from the natural cocoa butter that is one of its main ingredients. The cocoa plant was used for medicinal purposes since 3,000 years ago, starting with the ancient Mayans and Aztecs. It is rich in fatty acids, which hydrate and nourish your lips, and phytochemicals, which have a reputation for protecting against the negative effects of UV sunlight. It is also reputed to have anti-aging properties.

Sunflower oil is particularly beneficial for dry skin and contains a plethora of nourishing vitamins, minerals, lecithin and unsaturated fatty acids.

Beeswax, like cocoa butter, is reputed to provide a protective layer to help shield the skin from environmental irritants, microbes and the effects of the weather. It is said to seal in moisture and help firm and plump your lips, while also hydrating, conditioning and soothing them. It also reputedly exfoliates and helps regenerate the skin in chapped lips.

Peppermint was valued for its therapeutic properties as far back as the ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman empires. In lip balms, its essential oil contributes a refreshing note to add to the overall aroma and helps soothe and cool the lips. Studies have also shown it to have mild antifungal properties against certain strains of Candida, which can cause dry, breaking skin in the corners of the mouth.

Sweet Orange essential oil has cleansing, anti-septic and brightening qualities. It soothes and smooths your lips, while adding a sunny note to the balm’s aroma.

Finally, German chamomile is a precious and powerful essential oil that is highly valued by connoisseurs for its reputed extraordinary healing and rejuvenating powers.

All ingredients in this product, with the exception of the natural vitamin E oil, are certified-organic. All essential oils are therapeutic-grade. We use fair-trade, certified-organic, natural cocoa butter. While vitamin E has beneficial properties for skin care in its own right, its antioxidant quality also acts as a natural preservative for purely oil-based skincare products like this. We use vitamin E oil that is 100% natural and produced from GMO-free soybeans.

We hope that in the future we will be able to gain eco-certification for our products, so please support us on our journey, and let us know all your feedback.

What's in a name?

In the 1920s, the phrase “Cash or check?” meant “Do we kiss now or do we kiss later?”. Miss Lily felt a little naughty naming her lip balms after this phrase, but she certainly had a good giggle.

Either way, your lips will be at the ready. 😉
