A Kid's Guide: Fall Skincare

A Kid's Guide: Fall Skincare
School is back in session along with our favorite Fall activities. Viruses, chapped lips, dry skin and eczema flare-ups are some of the issues that also come with the season.

In our Kids’ Edition of Transitioning to Fall Skincare, we are sharing our skincare and wellness tips for the kiddos and recommending effective products. Continue reading

Lip balm is one of those staples we’d want to have with us on that desert island. There is nothing like having dry or chapped lips and rummaging through your purse or bag only to find you don’t have any. 

Lip balm options have changed a lot over the years. While Chapstick, Carmex and Lip Smackers used to be the go-tos, thankfully, there are a plethora of better-for-you options available.

Consumer packaging waste is a serious problem and one we have taken seriously and made conscious decisions about since the inception of the brand in 2010. While glass is our favorite option, and the one we use the most, we have realized that sometimes glass isn’t the best option when it comes to safety and functionality. Choosing the right packaging option for a product is a process that involves weighing many factors. Sometimes, we know right away which option makes most sense, but other times it isn’t so clear cut.
