“In keeping with our mission, Eco Lips supports the Fair Trade Movement, which aims to help producers in developing countries create better trading conditions and promote sustainability,” announced Steve Shriver, Founder and CEO of Eco Lips. “We chose Cocoa Butter as our featured Fair Trade ingredient because of its velvety texture and soothing effect on skin and lips. From the formulation standpoint, its got a really nice melting point, right in between oil and wax, which makes it a great addition to our lip balm.” Besides fair trade initiatives, purchasing Eco Lips supports family farms that practice sustainable methods of farming without the use of pesticides and herbicides.
