Eco Lips: A Lip Balm Love Story Changing Clean Beauty
Now more than ever consumers are paying attention to what ingredients are in their personal care products and brands are taking note. Eco Lips, the brand behind the original organic lip balm, has had clean beauty standards since its conception.
Eco Lips is a family-owned business that has produced high quality, organic products since 1997. Eco Lips started its journey with a simple love story. Steve Shriver, the company’s CEO, met Andrea Danielson, his wife, who first began mixing up batches of lip balm in her kitchen to share with friends and family. When Andrea met Steve and introduced him to her products, Steve fell in love with her lip balms as he fell in love with her. In 1997, Andrea and Steve married and by then, Steve, a life-long entrepreneur, helped to create the couples’ first product; Hemp Lip Buzz.
Ever since, Eco Lips has created products that are clean, effective, and eco-friendly. By using all-natural ingredients and recyclable materials, Eco Lips is helping to evolve the beauty industry and is a leading manufacturer of natural products. Their philosophy is rooted in environmental values and it continues to emphasize the importance of sustainability and organic products that work. Eco Lips understands how toxic ingredients can have a long-term effect on your health and the health of the environment, thus they are committed to creating products safe for you and the world.
Eco Lips goes above and beyond industry standards to carry their natural and sustainable practices into their formulations, such as using essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances, as well as using recyclable packaging. Eco Lips products do not contain any synthetic colors or fragrances, phthalates, parabens, petroleum, or carmine and their packaging is BPA free. Their brand is a Certified B Corporation, cruelty-free, gluten-free, certified USDA Organic, Fair Trade, and Non-GMO. Additionally, they use 100% renewable energy to fuel their facilities with a combination of 75% solar power and 25% wind power.
For Eco Lips, innovation and consciousness have always been a part of their mission and they are glad the industry is starting to catch up.
CEO Steve Shriver says, “These things have always been at the core of our business and is what drives us every day to continue to provide the best products for the world.”
These practices have propelled their brand and clean products to the forefront of the beauty industry and their company is a prime example of how industry practices can change the purchasing habits of consumers. Eco Lips understands that how you spend your money is one of the most fundamental things you can do at the grassroots level – something that has the ability to drive change in the industry that has traditionally produced products that do not have the best interests of consumers or the environment in mind.
