The Lip Lip Story

Hi, I’m Kelly the owner and creator of Lip Lip and I want to share the origins of Lip Lip with you.  We evolved organically over a few years.  My second child had ultra sensitive skin and would have severe eczema reactions to any store purchased lip balms, even the ones claiming to be natural, organic, pure etc still contained synthetic preservatives, colours and fragrances.  This was very frustrating as both a mother and a consumer, and I felt there HAD to be a healthier, more effective way to make lip balms that DIDN’T use petroleum based products, artificial additives and fragrances.

So, I began the Lip Lip journey. Through a great deal of research, trial and error, many cosmetic classes and discussions with herbalists, naturopaths and the family dermatologist, I developed a range of products that my family could use with happy results. Soon, I was getting requests from family and friends for my products, and at their encouragement, Lip Lip was born.


Simple is Best

Lip Lip truly believes that simple is best and that lip care does not have to be complicated. Surely we can do without the petrochemicals, the synthetic preservatives, the mineral oils, the phthalates, the cheap labour, the crazy exotic ingredients and, let’s not forget, all that excessive, wasteful packaging?

Nature provides us with everything that we need for lip care, and as a business we source the very best certified organic and naturally derived ingredients for our products. We want to keep it simple and we have tried to achieve a lip care line that truly harnesses what nature has provided.

We believe that keeping the organic ingredients in their natural state allows the restorative and invigorating properties of the ingredients we use to shine through.

As a result, we are proud to affirm that we use:

  • No mineral oils

  • No preservatives or emulsifiers

  • No artificial flavours or fragrances

  • No petrochemicals

  • No phthalates

  • No products that have been tested on animals

  • Recyclable packaging and correspondence

  • 100% organic products and naturally derived ingredients

  • No cheap labour (unless you count family and friends of course).


An Environmental Wake-up Call

We think it’s time for businesses to start conducting themselves in a more honest, ethical and sustainable way. We’re passionate about, and completely committed to conducting our business in a way that has a positive impact on the people and our environment. Environmental sustainability and being ‘Green’ is so much more than just a condescending consumer add-on.  Our little world and the people who call it home are worthy of so very much more.
