I hadn’t really been a fan of Lip Balms as I found most of them too greasy and sticky so decided to develop our own range, made entirely from scratch, using plant and nut butters and oils. I found the results to be much more pleasant to use than traditional petroleum jelly/Vaseline based products. I had plenty of volunteer testers (thank you, ladies, at the slimming meetings!) who gave me excellent feedback and so now we have eight lip balms that are suitable for vegetarians. Essential oils aren’t suitable for ingestion so can’t be used in lip balms, so I had to work hard to source flavourings, all of which, of course, are suitable for use and fully compliant with food safety standards. This means I wasn’t able to manufacture the flavours myself but I’m very happy with the quality of the ones I chose, and I hope you are too.
