About The Colors:
Our admiration and respect of the wild is evident in the naming of the NOURISH lip balm colorways. The untinted balm DENALI, is named after the highest mountain peak in North America. Our dusty brown hue is named ATACAMA for the famous Chilean desert, and our berry tone, is named TEKAPO, for the Lake in New Zealand known for its abundant blooms of lupine flowers. LAC ROSE, a rose with copper shimmer is named after the salt lake in Senegal that is pink due to the presence of Dunaliella salina algae. And our pale peach, fortified with zinc is named LAGUNA after Laguna Colorada, a shallow salt lake in the southwest of the altiplano of Bolivia. Folklore suggests the water is actually the blood of the gods, though scientists believe the colour comes from the algae and rich minerals in the water.
DENALI and LAC ROSE are glossy in finish and LAGUNA and ATACAMA, due to their content of wound-healing, sun-protective zinc are rather matte. TEKAPO is somewhere in between. However firm, once in contact with the lips the natural butters will warm and glide on with ease.
The balms have been tempered but rapid changes in heat or cold can cause the cocoa butter to "bloom", creating a bumpy appearance. This is an unfortunate esthetic issue but the product is perfectly safe and the warmth of the lips with soften and redistribute the cocoa crystals.
Our new and improved packaging is made from 100% recycled aluminum. Providing a final product that is recyclable is one thing, but having product made with recycled material is even better as it actively offsets waste before it even reaches the customer. For every lip balm sold, 1.5 aluminum cans are diverted from the waste stream. This packaging option is not perfect but it is for us the best available solution as it allows us to not just depend on product “end of life”, but use a component that diverts waste at the “beginning of life”.
