Tired of tossing plastic lip balm tubes in the trash? Swap those plastic tubes for cardboard, and treat your lips to organic beeswax, coconut oil, and shea butter balm. The coconut oil and shea butter moisturize like no other, and the beeswax protects from UV rays and heals dry, cracked lips. The perfect sustainable alternative to your favorite lip balm.
Each tube is 2.75" x 0.75" x 0.75" and contains 0.3oz of lip balm - that's three times as much lip balm as standard plastic-packaged balms!
Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Beeswax, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Peppermint Oil
Push tube up from bottom and apply generously to lips.
Packaging + End of Life
These organic lip balms are packaged in 100% cardboard tubes, which can be home composted at the end of their life.
Handmade in Los Angeles, California.
Made in the USA
Palm Oil Free
I love this lip balm. It’s nice and wide so it moisturizes all over. The scent is lovely but not too strong. It feels refreshing and calming. And so far it has helped keep my lips nice even without super consistent use.
Peppermint lip balm
I love the way this lip balm goes on smoothly and tingles my lips. I also love knowing that I'm not putting more plastic it in the world because this time is cardboard. It's lovely!
I love this chapstick! It works well and the peppermint is fairly strong, which I like.
We ship ugly boxes
Our commitment to sustainability doesn't end when you press that checkout button.
We pack all of our orders in reused boxes and envelopes, with reused paper packaging, post-consumer recycled paper labels, and even paper tape.
You may not get an IG-worthy unboxing, but you will get the most sustainable packaging we can possibly find.
Oh and did we mention our shipping is always carbon negative?
Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact razor many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.
My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.
I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.
