Beauty Notes: EcoLips

Posted by Joy Rothke, Monday, June 30, 2008 2:02 PM (Eastern)

A lifetime of lip balm use has made me an expert, and I'm very particular about the balms I use. They have to be non-waxy, organic, soothing and preferably, moderately priced. I keep tubes and tins of lip balm all over the place [desk, car, bathroom, purse, etc.] so I prefer to keep the cost under $5, since inevitably, some will disappear or get misplaced.

I started using EcoLips last year, after reading about them in someone's blog. I liked the fact that they're an American, family-owned company based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. They offer a wide variety of balms, including vegan and vegetarian. Their prices are reasonable, with most balms between $1.99 - 3.99.

I ordered a selection and they're all excellent. My favorite is their Organic Eco Lips Gold ($3.49). It's 99% organic and exceptionally soothing (Ingredients: Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Beeswax, Vitamin E, Organic Calendula Flower Extract, Vitamin A. Cruelty,Gluten and Petrolatum free. No Hydrogenated Oils.) This lip balm addict considers Eco Lips one of the top three lip balms on the market (the other two are Badger Balm and Aroma Borealis.)

If you're looking for a light colored balm/lipstick substitute for summer, try Eco Tints ($3.99 ea; set of 3, $9.99), a 99% organic gluten/carmine/lanolin free lip moisturizer in Rose Quartz, Plush Red and Mocha Velvet.

Along with hundreds of other Cedar Rapids business owners, Eco Lips has been hit hard by flood damage. They're back in business and offering a free Eco Lips Organic Gold Lip Balm with any order over $10.00, and free shipping to the U.S. for orders over $15.00. Use the coupon code: FLOOD. This offer is good through August. This is a good time to try some excellent products and help an indie business get back on its feet.
