Cedar Rapids, Iowa (February 27, 2006) Want a high-powered boost from your lip balm? Eco Lips, Inc. introduces Eco Lips ENERGY, an all natural lip balm infused with caffeine, green tea extract and Vitamin B12 for a quick and discreet way to get more ENERGY— anytime, anywhere. Unlike coffee and most “energy” products which are absorbed through the digestive system, Eco Lips ENERGY transfers the nutrients directly into your body through the lips and mouth. The result is a quicker surge of energy utilizing a smaller dose of ingredients. Deliciously flavored with exciteMINT, the new balm contains organic jojoba oil, organic essential oils and organic beeswax for a “smooth and soothe” lip experience. According to Steve Shriver, President of Eco Lips, “Our formula is designed for anyone who wants a lift without the negative effects that consuming caffeinated beverages can sometimes bring. We add Vitamin B12 because of its known effects to increase energy and improve circulation. The boost is provided easily through one of the most absorbent parts of your body – your lips!”
Eco Lips ENERGY is packaged in a convenient Propel/Repel Knurl Twist tube and retails for $2.99. For sports or outdoor enthusiasts, the eco clip or eco leash can be purchased additionally with the ENERGY balm for attaching directly to belt loop, fanny pack or back pack. Adds Steve, “We ‘road tested’ the new ENERGY lip balm on our own Team EcoLips. The results? Eco Lips ENERGY meets the challenge!” The company sponsors a group of extreme sports professionals who bike, ski, run and snowboard while proudly wearing the Team EcoLips Logo. Notable participants include April Lawyer (USA), Aleisha Cline (Canada), Janna Meyen (USA), Haven Barnes (USA), Anka Martin (SA) and Andrew Neethling (SA). “Eco Lips ENERGY keeps me from bonking on my long training rides,” says Nate Smith, professional triathlete, “Let me tell you, I can always use a burst of energy!” [For more information on Team EcoLips, please see www.ecolips.com.]
