Video summary: pouring lip balm

ripe for the picking.

ripe's inspiration comes from the idea of something being just right for the picking - fruits, herbals, essentials, nature, pleasant smells, the unexpected and in some cases even a line from a book. Everything is made from our home studio in sunny Southern California with ingredients sourced from American companies, including a few Etsy shops (the only exception being a small selection of hard to find oils which I source from a wonderful company in Australia).

ripe is a completely made by hand, one-woman operation. All ripe products are handmade in small batches, with mainly natural, high quality body-safe ingredients, no unnecessary preservatives, no dyes, no phthalates, and no animal testing. If a product is vegan (which means no animal products, including beeswax), it is noted as such, and many of ripe's products are completely 100% natural.

thanks for stopping by!

Hello and welcome.

ripe products are handmade in small batches by me, with mainly natural, high quality body-safe ingredients, no unnecessary preservatives, no dyes, no phthalates, and no animal testing. The flavor oils contained in the lip balms are not meant to be tasted and are without sweeteners (which means less licking of your lips and less chances of encouraging chapped lips).

ripe products containing fragrance oils are made with high quality, body-safe, phthalate-free fine fragrance oils that are either natural or a mix of synthetic and natural, so they will irritate you if you are sensitive to fragrance. If a product is vegan (which means no animal products, including beeswax) or all natural (completely free of synthetics) I have noted it as such.

A note on lip balm expiration dates. They apply for after opening a sealed lip balm. They can last at that point anywhere from 1 to 2+ years after being opened and exposed to the elements. Some general tips on prolonging the life of your lip balms:

⊿ Keep them in a cool, dry place
⊿ Keep them out of direct sunlight
⊿ Replace the cap after every use
⊿ Open one lip balm at a time
⊿ Only open the product when you are ready to use it
