This lip balm was created to soothe and relieve sore and chapped lips while keeping healthy lips moisturised and protected. It is made with raw, organic golden beeswax from one of the two beekeepers up the San Cristobal el Alto mountain (the bees live surrounded by forest and wild flowers and are not fed sugar. The honey is only collected twice a year and only as much as can be taken to leave the bees with enough for themselves). This is combined with lanolin for incredible moisturising, cocoa butter, macadamia oil, cold pressed coconut oil from southern Belize, mint essential oil and raw, organic honey
Guatemalan Cocoa Butter, Macadamia Oil, Coconut Oil, Raw Organic Beeswax, Castor Oil, Glycerine, Raw Organic Honey and Mint Essential Oil.
We work closely with local and organic suppliers – both providing fair wages and employment in my community as well as fair prices for supplies. We take great pride in being familiar with the source of our key ingredients and introducing our supplier family to the world. This vision is also reflected in our packaging. All Tierra & Lava products are packaged in glass, aluminum or cardboard. Our soap is wrapped in a combination of brown paper and a label with as little colour as possible while still conveying the vivid culture of Guatemalan handmade textiles. he vapor blends and toners are bottled in glass; the face scrubs and creams in glass jars. And our tags are made of handmade recycled paper. Our packaging is not all locally sourced as yet, as it is prohibitively expensive and requires mass production but we hope to be able to work with local factories in the future and in the meantime our packaging comes from reputable third parties with eco-friendly and repurposable options.
Packaged in a small round screw-top aluminum tin so that it can be opened and closed with ease even if your fingers slip!
