Lip Ganache's lip balm is based on using natural, unrefined ingredients. that are sourced from reliable sources. We only use organic essential oils for our flavors, never artificial flavorings. Our philosophy is to create lip balms that deliver a health benefit.
Not all lip balms are created equal. Many lip balms use inexpensive petroleum products like petroleum jelly and mineral oil, which do not contain any beneficial nutrients from their plant-based counterparts. Most lip balms contain artificial and chemical ingredients, usually in artificial flavors and colors.
At Lip Ganache, we work very hard to source the highest quality all-natural, and unrefined ingredients from reliable sources. It may be harder to accomplish and cost a little more, but we think our customers are worth it. Because our products contain natural ingredients and are made in small lots, there may be slight variations in color and aroma from batch to batch.
