Because our ingredients are natural butters & oils they do tend to be reactive to temperature. In a hot car it may soften or even liquefy. Simply turn the container upright and place in a cooler area and it will become solid again, it could become gritty from the changes in temperature, this will not effect the effectiveness of the ingredients. If in a cold area, it may feel solid or less smooth. Our products perform excellent in comfortable conditions like your home or pocket, and our lid is snug to reduce the chances of leakage under hot conditions.
Colors & Flavors
We have chosen not to color or tint our lip balm, at this time. Each balm is made of ingredients that are considered pure, raw, organic or food grade in their original state. Any deviation in color is due to natural variations. We have chosen to use edible candy flavorings and essential oils which have some colors to them, but usually result in slight color variations.
