We use Fair Trade Certified cocoa butter, coconut oil, and raw sugar in a variety of our products supporting fair wages and safe working conditions for farmers.

We do not use any gluten-derived ingredients in our products.
We do not test our products on animals and our suppliers have all verified that no animal testing has been performs on our ingredients.
Our large .25 oz lip balm tube is made with over 40% recycled material.

We offset 100% of our manufacturing with renewable energy wind credits.
We use food grade manufacturing processes to ensure cleanliness every step of the way. From our low batch temperature, slow-fill manufacturing process to our lot coding and labeling lines, we are acutely focused on the details of the entire process.
We are centrally located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in an area of town focused on arts and culture, called “New Bohemia”. Right out our back door is a year round farmers market, as well as a beautiful solar array providing energy to the vibrant neighborhood.
