Almost 200 million plastic lip balm tubes are binned every year and the vast majority are never recycled. So, we think lips need a shake-up.

We've created a range dedicated to doing good; for the planet, for people and of course, for your lips.

Do good for your lips - Pepped Up is our cooling peppermint lip balm formulated with cocoa butter and jojoba oil, for silky smooth lips. Moringa and castor oils lock in hydration and are packed full of vitamin e and fatty acids, to aid in moisture retention. On application of our lip balms, 94% of testers found an immediate improvement in the appearance of dry lips! Pepped up leaves you minty fresh, so you won't mind wearing your face mask.

Do good for the planet – plastic-free, home compostable packaging (yes, the tube!).

Do good for people - Carefully crafted with luxurious fairly traded sustainable ingredients from Rwanda, Ghana and Samoa to help support farming cooperatives (predominantly women owned) in these regions. Direct trade ensures that local growers receive stable prices and, reliable income which means in turn they are better able to look after their community and their environment.

Best lip balm I’ve tried

I have dry lips, always have had so I use a lot of lip balm and have tried a lot of lip balms. I’m fussy with texture, taste, moisture. I now think I’ve found my new favourite…this is very moisturised, it’s very smooth and buttery on my lips making them feel moist for quite some time and I use it less than I usually do with much more popular lip balms. I also really like the peppermint flavour and how it tingles and how it’s made of natural ingredients and also better for the environment.

Go to lip balm

This is my favourite lip balm — I’ve tried a few from Ethique and numerous other brands and always come back to Pepped Up! Love the peppermint flavour, how nice it feels and how long it lasts! It’s so good, my dog thinks it’s food and has stolen a few of my lip balms left in unfortunate places!

Too hard, bad packaging

I find this lip balm does not glide, but is so waxy and hard, I have to drag it against my lips, which causes the balm to become mishapen, and I have had issues with the cardboard tube. A short cap would work better.

Ethique Australia

Kia ora Kimberley,

Thank you so much for your review and I'm so sorry to hear about the issues you've had with our Lip Balm range!

Our lip balms do have a firmer formulation - because they are in home-compostable tubes, a firmer consistency allows them to have better temperature stability which means they won’t melt so easily and can withstand being in your pocket or handbag. This firmer formulation and thicker feeling on your lips also means that the balm is longer lasting (meaning you won’t have to reapply a million times in a day!) and ingredients such as candelilla wax form a protective barrier against moisture loss for supple, healthy-looking lips.

If you’re finding that it’s a little too heavy on your lips, our top recommendation is to apply a little less than you think you need - one or two swipes at most as a little goes a long way and to see how this feels in comparison. Of course, we really appreciate all the feedback on our brand new balms so if there is a way you think we can improve our new lip balms, please do let us know!

Please also know that we do have a product guarantee, and because you didn't love this product, I would be more than happy to provide you with a replacement of another product. Are there any other products that you would be interested in trying? Please flick us an email at hello@ethique.com with a product you'd like to try and your delivery details 😊

Happy

Decent lip balm. The peppermint is refreshing without being overwhelming. My lips are soft and it applies easily. It doesn’t change the appearance of my lips at all ( they don’t look glossy or nicer ) but it doesn’t make my lips feel worse as some other lip balms have don’t in the past.
