This lip balm gets is sweet & fruity flavor from vegan candy flavoring. Earth & Anchor Vegan Lip Balm uses Carnauba Wax instead of Beeswax. This plant-based wax is smooth and creamy. It has a slightly slicker feel than traditional beeswax lip balms. Earth & Anchor Lip Balms are made of a creamy blend of Castor Oil, Soybean Oil, Carnauba Wax, Cocoa Butter, and Avocado Oil. Our vegan lip balms get their scents through the use of essential oils or vegan candy flavoring oils (noted in ingredients)…we don’t use any artificial flavors, sweeteners, or ingredients that might contain traces of egg or dairy. This product contains absolutely no animal or bee products. Prepared by hand in small batches, we use only natural ingredients so our lip balm provides deep healing & moisturizing lip protection without that heavy feeling. There are absolutely no petroleum or artificial chemicals in this smooth balm.
