I am an unreconstructed carnivore, yet can still appreciate the merits of a vegan lip balm. Sevani Vegan Lip Balm ($7.00) protects the delicate pout with an edited list of natural ingredients that moisturize and soothe. And this isn’t one of those chap sticks that need to be applied every 10 minutes. Lips stay silky smooth for a few hours at least.
Of course, you could always settle for that standby, Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. However, a true vegan would be put off by the beeswax. Not to mention chemical fragrance. Sevani’s wax is candelilla, from the native shrub. The oils are coconut and sunflower, calendula sooths, cocoa butter nourishes and there’s a dab of vitamin E. Scent and phony flavor free.
