This listing is for our MANDARIN organic vegan lip balm in a cardboard push up tube. Each chunky tube contains at least 11g of lip balm - this one is built to last!
As with all Battle Green handmade cosmetics, our plant-based lip balms are PETA certified vegan friendly and cruelty free. The balms are also packed with quality natural ingredients, and free from synthetic colours and fragrances.
ORGANIC COCOA BUTTER: With its gorgeous chocolately aroma, cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, helping to form a protective barrier over delicate lip skin that locks in moisture, nourishes and improves elasticity.
ORGANIC JOJOBA OIL: Jojoba oil deeply penetrates and softens skin. It's also rich in Vitamin E and B, as well as antioxidants and minerals like chromium, copper, and zinc, all of which help nourish and protect. Organic, cold-pressed, Jojoba Oil has the highest level of antioxidants and nutrients.
ORGANIC CASTOR OIL: Derived from pressed Castor beans, Castor oil contains high amounts of fatty acids – including omega-6 and ricinoleic acid – and has been used as a natural, hydrating skin remedy for centuries. As it penetrates the skin, it also helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
CANDELILLA WAX: A vegan friendly alternative to beeswax, and an eco-friendly alternative to paraffin wax, Candelilla wax comes from the leaves of the Candelilla shrub, which grows in the southwestern United States. It helps create a firm yet creamy balm that is easily absorbed and soothing.
MANDARIN ESSENTIAL OIL: The essential oils in our lip balms were chosen not only for their beautiful scents, but also for their beneficial properties. Mandarin essential oil has a bright, uplifting scent and boasts some pretty impressive credentials! Rich in antioxidants, it has been shown to neutralise free radicals that can damage skin cells and cause early ageing; it has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can help repair and protect skin; and Mandarin essential oil can also boost circulation and blood flow, leaving skin looking plumper and brighter.
Each balm comes in a plastic-free and biodegradable cardboard tube that can be recycled when it's all used up - an eco-friendly alternative to so many plastic lip balm tubes and pots that sit in landfill for decades (after all, only 9% of plastic ends up being recycled). To use, evenly push up the cardboard disk at the base of the tube to reveal your desired amount of balm - only a little is needed - and apply to your lips as usual 💋
All Battle Green products are sent using biodegradable, plastic free (and often recycled) packing materials.
