I couldn’t believe my luck when I was given the option to choose from the four flavors of Made From Earth Lip Balm
($3.99). The lip balm is available in citrus fresh, blueberry, spearmint, and vanilla. I chose blueberry with vitamin E as blueberries are my favorite fruit, which are full of antioxidants. It’s also rare to find products with blueberry flavoring. It’s actually really rare to find blueberry anything. I was already beginning to like Made from Earth.
Made From Earth
is as committed to being organic as you can get. The line of organic skincare essentials is void of any ingredient with even the potential to be toxic. The company strives to formulate products containing the highest possible levels of certified-organic ingredients and fruits. The products are free of synthetic coloring agents or fragrances, preservatives, parabens, and paraffin or other petroleum. The company is on a constant nationwide hunt to find ingredients that meet its earth-friendly standards. Moreover, all of its ingredients and plants are from certified-organic farms, and manufacturers must provide a certificate of organic certification from the USDA.
The balm’s formulation consists of seven simple ingredients. The organic beeswax protects lips against the elements and locks in moisture. Organic sunflower and jojoba oil maintain lip hydration. There’s the added benefit of vitamin E to nourish the lips. The formulation also contains blueberry flavoring, which is sourced from the juice of blueberries. Rosemary extract is not only good for your lips, it also serves as a natural preservative. Finally, the botanical calendula brings welcome healing and soothing properties. It’s nice to know there isn’t a chemical-laden product on your lips.
There is the faintest fruity scent, and that’s only if you sniff the balm in the tube. The fragrance is undetectable once applied to lips, and the blueberry flavoring is refreshingly subtle. The balm is very moisturizing and doesn’t feel gooey on the lips, like some other lip balms. The beeswax gives the balm good staying power. I’m not saying you can eat a meal through this balm but you can have a glass of wine without worrying about re-applying it. I’ve also used the balm overnight and have woken up with soft lips.
There’s really nothing to dislike about the Made from Earth lip balm. It contains organic, non-toxic ingredients, and the flavor and scent are neutral when applied. It’s comfortable to wear and most importantly, it is moisturizing. It’s totally worth the $3.99.
