Dump out almost any woman’s purse (okay, maybe don’t) and chances are you’ll find one of the round eos Organic Smooth Sphere Lip Balms. These instantly recognizable lip quenchers have become an iconic staple for the beauty addict and novice alike and it goes beyond the sweet flavours, lip-softening formula and budget-friendly price tag.
Whether you’re already a fan or not, you may not know these five fun facts about ‘em (some of them even stumped us)!
1. They’re 100% natural
You’d be hard-pressed to find a beauty brand that can boast such accolades while also ringing in under $5, but a fact is a fact. These balms are made with all-natural ingredients, are non-GMO and are 95% organic (plus gluten-free), so you know these sweetly-scented spheres are cute and clean.
2. They don’t contain water
While water sounds like a beneficial ingredient, it’s actually the culprit for the need to include preservatives. So, without containing any water, the formula is antimicrobial (meaning no bacteria can grow), which eliminates the need for synthetic preservatives like parabens.
3. The flavours are made of 20 to 40 natural extracts
Strawberry Sorbet, Blueberry Acai, Pomegranate Raspberry, Summer Fruit, Sweet Mint, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Passion Fruit—we’re not listing ingredients in a summer fruit salad, but gushing over the sweet flavours that make up the lineup. Each sweetly-scented balm is made up of anywhere from 20-40 natural extracts—yum!
4. They help fight the signs of aging
Not only do these balms boast super-moisturizing ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil and organic beeswax, but they go beyond hydration to help fight free radicals and signs of aging on the lips with antioxidant-rich vitamin E as well. Now there’s a good reason to re-apply!
5. eos is the largest user of organic beeswax in the world
eos takes their organic beeswax seriously—so much so that they’re the largest user of the ingredient in the world, using a whopping 2.5x the amount of maple syrup that Nova Scotia produces annually. If you know Canadians, that’s a pretty big amount—and a lot of lip balms!
