Look what I found – beautifully presented organic lip balms from UK-based Figs and Rouge!  These little pots of loveliness are just what the organic fashionista ordered and the good news is that they smell as good as they look.

The ‘recipe’ centres on a shea butter, beeswax and sunflower seed oil base and then adds a couple of  lovely ‘actives’  in the form of a little rose hip oil (Rosa Canina) and Calendula extract – great for their antioxidant content and skin conditioning properties.  The other ingredients are the essential oil smells and natural aroma chemicals (in the UK you have to list these even when they exist naturally in essential oils).  Simple, effective and beautiful.

Figs and Rouge Lip Repair

I have a Rambling Rose, Sweet Geranium and Peppermint and Tea Tree version all of which are being squirreled away to give as Christmas stocking fillers.  You can find out more about this soil association approved range on the company’s website:  I may just pop in and see them when I’m over in January….

Oh and I bet they would LOVE the all-natural mineral oil alternative that I also grabbed a sample of yesterday – It’s not organic but it is approved by Ecocert and is all-natural.  Works beautifully too…….
