lip care

Pucker up and say farewell to dry, flaky, and chapped lips—forever! Hydrate and protect your pretty pout with plant-based oils, butters, and essential oils. Your lips will be softened, conditioned, and naturally nourished.

Different lip-care containers

  • Lip balm tubes: These cylindrical plastic containers feature a screwing bottom that pushes up the lip balm. Each small container can hold approximately 4ml of lip product. You can find lip balm tubes in clear, white, black, and a few other colors. They also come in round and oval shapes. If you wish to make larger amounts of lip balm, then a jumbo-sized lip balm tube is available that can hold 1 ⁄2 oz of lip balm. A few companies even sell environmentally friendly, paper, push-up lip balm tubes.
  • Lip balm jars and pots: These are small glass or plastic containers, which can hold 1 ⁄4–1 ⁄2 oz of lip product. They have either plastic or metal lids.
  • Lip balm tins: These small metal tins are available in either a round or rectangular shape. The round containers can be bought with either a rolled-edge cover or a twist top. The rectangular tins have a convenient slide top.
