ripeshop's Shop Policies
Hello and welcome.
ripe lip balms, perfume oils, soap, and bath salts are handmade with mainly natural ingredients, no preservatives, no dyes, and no animal testing. The flavor oils contained in the lip balms are not meant to be tasted and are without sweeteners. The perfume oils and soap do contain fragrances that are either natural or a mix of synthetic and natural, so they will irritate you if you are sensitive to fragrance. ripe bath salts are made entirely of all natural, vegan ingredients.
