I received samples of these Aroma Naturals (primarily known for their amazing candles) ButterX lip balms at the Natural Products Expo a couple of weeks ago and I had to take a picture quickly before my boyfriend stole them! Can you tell this pic was taken on a hotel bedspread? I managed to keep two of them for myself and Gregg got to steal the other two. The scents are unique and a nice change of pace from my other reigning lip balm favorite, Burt’s Bees. And, they have the gold standard in the cruelty free world – the Leaping Bunny certification.
What’s really great about them though are the ingredients.
Our lips are different from all of the other skin on our body in that there is NO natural sebum to keep them moist. Only saliva is available, which dries them even more. For years Aroma Naturals had their researchers & chemists teaming up with nutritionists to create lip butters that work. Recognizing that there are essential nutrients that our body doesn’t produce on its own, Omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9, they put together these patent pending, nutritionally packed combinations.
- Aloe Vera
- Cherry Vanilla
- Iced Green Tea
- Orange Honeymint
You can buy them on the Aroma Naturals website for $5 each. They are gluten-free, safe for diabetics (sweetened with stevia), cruelty free and eco-friendly.
