Eco Lips launches hand, body balm
Organic lip balm company Eco Lips has launched a new Eco Lips Hand & Body Balm, timed to care for hands that are dry and cracked from increased hand sanitizing and hand washing.
The product is available for retailers to manufacture under its private label lines, as part of its private brand and contracting manufacturing services. The company also produces its Eco Lips branded items found at natural food grocers, Walmart and on Amazon.
To go along with the launch of the product, for the last few weeks of May, Eco Lips is donating 20% from every online purchase to the Frontline Hero Fund, a nonprofit organization that assists families of frontline workers who have passed away or are critically ill from the coronavirus. Funding goes to help with funeral expenses, food and other needs.
The new hand and body balm product is a gentle, all-over moisturizer, like a lotion in a stick, the company said. The soothing formula features fair-trade cocoa butter, which is high in fatty acids to help nourish and provide a protective barrier over the skin. Paired with organic beeswax and organic coconut oil the balm comes in a convenient .56 oz. stick. No fragrances or flavors were added, and the fast-absorbing balm makes for an accessible, natural remedy for daily use at home or on-the-go.
"Right now we've all been increasing handwashing and hand sanitizing, but it's been taking a toll on our hands, causing extreme dry skin, especially for health professionals who wash and sanitize more than anyone," begins CEO and Founder of Eco Lips, Steve Shriver. "I'm really proud of our new Hand & Body Balm. It's perfect for moisturizing every day, all day long if you need it. We even designed the blue color used on our label to symbolize the typical blue scrubs worn by frontline workers."
The Marion, Iowa-based company manufactures certified organic, fair trade and non-GMO lip care products and in a wide variety of private label options.
