Conventional lip sticks and tinted lip balms often contain the following toxic ingredients:
Phthalates are a group of chemicals that may be disruptive to the endocrine system, which is responsible for hormone production. Such interference can lead to developmental, reproductive, and neurological damage.
Lead: Is a proven neurotoxin linked to miscarriage, reduced fertility, and delays in the onset of puberty for females. About seven years ago, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found lead in over half of the 33 brands of lipstick they tested. A more recent study by the FDA tested popular brands and found 400 that contained up to 7.19ppm of lead.
Quaternium-15 and Other Formaldehyde-Releasing Preservatives: When some chemicals break down, they release harmful formaldehyde gas, classified as a known human carcinogen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Researchers and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.The main risk is through inhalation
Polyethylene gGols (PEGs): Are petroleum-based compounds that are used to thicken, soften, and gelatinize cosmetics, making them a common ingredient in cream-based products. The main issue with PEGs is that they are often contaminated with ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane.

I’ve been using the original lip balm for a while now and absolutely loved it so I was very excited when the tinted lip balm came out. Just like its predecessor, it’s easy to apply with a light scent and gives you a cute berry color without the nasty overbearing feeling that cosmetics can give you. If you’re looking for a light lip balm for daily wear, this is the product for you.

This really works. Leaves a lovely soft pink tint with applications thru the day. Ingenious non-plastic packaging. Way better product than, say, Burt’s Bees.
Buy two. So you don’t go nuts searching pockets for the misplaced other one. Indispensable.

I loved the original tinted lip balm but the tube version is super convenient to use. The color is perfect too.

Great to keep on my desk to apply before Zoom calls. It’s moisturizing and smells amazing. The color goes on a bit dark and then fades into a light berry. Generous moisture, one of the few non-depleting chapsticks I’ve encountered!

I love this lip balm but out of the 5 that I ordered 1 of them came half way filled. The other 4 were full.
