We are SO EXCITED to now be able to offer zero waste lip balms in compostable tubes, thanks to our clever friends at Ethique!
Almost 200 million plastic lip balm tubes are binned every year, and the vast majority are never recycled. That's just crazy! So Ethique created a range dedicated to doing good; for the planet, for people and of course, for your lips.
Do good for your lips – Pepped Up is Ethique's cooling peppermint lip balm, formulated with cocoa butter and jojoba oil, for silky smooth lips. Moringa and castor oils lock in hydration and are packed full of vitamin e and fatty acids, to aid in moisture retention. On application of our lip balms, 94% of testers found an immediate improvement in the appearance of dry lips! Pepped up leaves you minty fresh, so you won't mind wearing your face mask.
Do good for the planet – 100% plastic-free, home compostable packaging (yes, the tube!).
Do good for people - Carefully crafted with luxurious fairly traded sustainable ingredients from Rwanda, Ghana and Samoa to help support farming cooperatives (predominantly women-owned) in these regions. Direct trade ensures that local growers receive stable prices and, reliable income which means in turn they are better able to look after their community and their environment.
Why we love the Ethique Lip Balms:
100% of testers found Ethique lip balms to soothe and soften dry lips
The creamy texture glides on to lips easily, with a non-sticky formulation
Great value; it's equivalent to 2x typical lip balms

Directions: Push up less than you think you'll need. Swipe on to your lips, and pucker up! The tube is compostable; when done, simply pop the tube and box into the compost or your garden to break down.

This is my new favourite every day lip balm. The peppermint scent is excellent and it’s made all the better by the fact the whole tube is compostable!
