Alright, so when you are on the look out for the cutest new lip product, it probably doesn’t cross your mind to check out an animal rights group, but PETA has taken the cosmetics world by surprise by creating a really effective, oh-so-cute, perfectly packaged and totally fun lip balm.
Do you get disgusted by the fact that beeswax serves as a main ingredient in nearly all mainstream chapsticks and lip balms? After all, beeswax is made up of fatty acids as well as long chain alcohols. In addition to the gross-out factor, it’s mean to bees so PETA deserves some applause for offering lip balm that protects your lips without any of the negative stuff that comes with too many commercial lip products.
Perhaps the best part of the lip balms, though, are their creative containers. There are four lips balms, and each one contains adorable art of an animal with clever slogans. The tangerine flavor features a lion and says “Animals Out of the Act.” The fruit smoothie has a fox and implores everyone to “go faux fabulous.” The peppermint flavor, which is perfect for the holidays, features a monkey and asks you to “cut out animal experi-mints.” Last but certainly not least, the vanilla bean flavor has a pig and says “Viva Las Vegans.”
Included ingredients in the lip balms are cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, candelilla wax, sunflower oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, aloe vera, avocado oil, essential oils, and flavor oils from vegan sources.
