Earth & Anchor Vegan Lip Balm uses Carnauba Wax instead of Beeswax. This plant-based wax is smooth and creamy. It has a slightly slicker feel than traditional beeswax. Earth & Anchor Vegan Lip Balms are made of a creamy blend of Castor Oil, Soybean Oil, Carnauba Wax, Cocoa Butter, and Avocado Oil. Prepared by hand in small batches, we use only natural ingredients so there are no petroleum or artificial chemicals in this smooth balm. Our vegan lip balms get their scents through the use of essential oils or vegan candy flavoring oils (noted in ingredients)…we don’t use any artificial flavors, sweeteners, or ingredients that might contain traces of egg or dairy.
