Confession. I’m obsessed with lip balm, chapstick, whatever you choose to call it. There’s one in my purse, one in my nightstand, bathroom, car….you get it right? But with my obsession comes a conscious choice to choose products that are safe and as chemical free as possible. That’s why I always check with EWG before I buy. The Environmental Working Group is dedicated to our health and the environment. They test every product on the market for safety. Their scoring focuses on 4 key elements: CANCER, TOXICITY, ALLERGIES & USE RESTRICTIONS. Products can have the EWG Certification or scores from 1 & up with the lower number being the better score. Check out their site and look up products HERE. You will be surprised at how toxic some things are. Things that you may be using.

I’m always trying out new products so I’m highlighting some of my favorites for you. Here are a few lip balms that I love!


Biossance is all about clean beauty. They’re products are non-toxic, cruelty-free and sustainable. They can be found in Sephora. This delicious VEGAN LIP BALM received and EWG Certification. That’s a perfect score!! I use it and I absolutely love it!!

Welcome to one of the most amazing holistic cosmetic companies on the planet. Founded by an amazing woman, Gregg Renfrew, this company follows a strict holistic protocol and something called the Never List. This is a long list of toxic chemicals that is nowhere to be found in BeautyCounter products. It takes a lot for me to endorse a cosmetic company but I love BeautyCounter and use their products daily. This amazing LIP BALM got and EWG Certification as have many of their products. Check them out HERE.

Ilia Beauty offers clean cosmetics with an exotic feel. Founder and Owner Sasha Plavsic created this company with a holistic presence. There is no doubt that her heart and soul is in every product including this lip balm that I absolutely love-Lip Conditioner Balmy Days!


I’m pretty sure that most of us have one of these yummy lip balms. Not only is their packaging unique and eye-catching but their flavors are yummy! This amazing company prides themselves on organic and non-toxic ingredients with a mission of complete sustainability. I have several favorites so I just go with a VARIETY PACK!

I know that there are many companies out there creating clean products and it’s hard to choose but please do your research. I have no doubt that you can and will find something you love that is safe for your body and the planet.
