The Promotional Industry's Demand for Quality, Sustainably Sourced Ingredients
The promotional industry is seeing a high demand for quality, sustainably sourced ingredients. This is great news for the environment, as well as our skin! Eco Lips Promo uses fairly-traded and organic ingredients to ensure a natural, pure, and chemical-free product that's good for people and the planet.
Word to the wise: when choosing a lip care or beauty product, look for ingredients that you cannot pronounce. Many chemicals lurk in ingredient lists in many promotional beauty products - lip balm being one of them. One of the biggest offenders is petroleum. Did you know petroleum is actually a drying agent? It not only doesn't nourish the skin but seals the skin barrier of the lips meaning lips can't fully absorb the moisture - making them even drier than before!
With so many lip balm choices to choose from, where do you even start? Here's a helpful checklist to see if your balm passes the "good balm" test.
- It features cocoa butter, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, avocado oil or hemp seed oil as the base. These oils are ultra-moisturizing and help enhance the skin barrier. They soak into skin well without leaving them too greasy.
- It's certified organic and/or fair trade. An organic ingredient means it hasn't been genetically altered and comes from the truest source. The cherry on top? is if it's also Fair Trade Certified, which means it was sourced fairly through transparency, dialogue and respect.
- It doesn't have ingredients you don't know or can't pronounce. No added colorants, dyes, weird-sounding chemicals. Just pure, natural ingredients that are sourced from our planet.
