Hurraw! Balm lives in Whitefish, Montana; a tiny ski town nestled among the amazing peaks of Glacier National Park. They started out with pure intent; a personal obsession to create the perfect balm: all natural, vegan, made from premium raw, organic and fair trade ingredients...complete with a bunch of natural and fun flavor options! It also had to meet some tough criteria...
Criteria: Super smooth, not draggy, not sticky, not sweet, not too glossy, not too smelly, never grainy, long lasting; plus, it had to hold up to being in a back jeans pocket all day without melting! It took them several obsessed years to formulate Hurraw!
Why Hurraw! Is Unique
They hand mix and individually pour each tube of Hurraw! Balm. They truly care about the quality and integrity of their product and feel Hurraw! is the finest all natural, vegan, raw balm available...a great product to be used by everyone regardless of lifestyle or eating habits! Sourcing honest, fair trade, organic, vegan and raw ingredients from reputable suppliers was difficult at best. They finally did it and they are thrilled to share the labors of their hard work with other balm lovin' individuals. Your purchase supports legit fair trade, organic farmers and suppliers here in the States and around the World.
Hurraw! Balm is a Certified Vegan product! 'Vegan' means no animal products (ie: beeswax) are included in their product. They are proud to also be CCIC approved. The CCIC provides the leaping bunny logo which assures their cruelty free standards (no animals are used/harmed/tested on in any stage of the manufacture of our product, including their suppliers).
Hurraw! Balm contains certified organic, raw, cold pressed and centrifuged extracted, nut/seed oils and butters that have been processed below 118F degrees and are still chocked full of their essential nutrients and enzymes. Although more expensive, the quality of raw oils and butters is superb and you'll feel the difference!
They gently warm their oils and butters separate from our candelilla wax (which melts at 155F). They combine them at a high speed which keeps the overall temperature low and also why you might get a lucky tube with a few tiny air bubbles on top! They hand pour them into their custom made tube cooling trays.
Gluten Free, No GMO's, Kosher
Hurraw! balm is Gluten Free. Their ingredients contain no GMO's and all are certified Kosher Parve.
No petroleum, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. Did you know the shine in many lipsticks and glosses come from petroleum jelly (a bi-product of oil drilling linked to many health problems including cancer). A recent statistic showed that over the course of a decade regular users of lip products containing petroleum, can end up ingesting seven pounds of the stuff...essentially it's like drinking gasoline. Ugh. (source: www.doctoroz.com)
Hurraw! Core Ingredients
Almond oil: Their 100% natural almond oil is pressed in California at a family-run mill from raw almond kernels. It comes direct to them right after pressing, allowing it to be super fresh and exceptionally rich in nourishing fatty acids. Great for your lips; almond oil moisturizes, softens, soothes, and re-conditions them superbly.
Coconut Oil: They use a raw, organic, fair trade coconut oil direct from Mexico (less travel=less pollution) that has been extracted using a centrifuged method. This method gently separates fresh coconuts and allows a pure raw oil to be obtained. The result is amazing. Coconut oil is a fabulous moisturizer, a great free radical buster and super soothing for chronic lip inflammation.
Cacao Butter: Their natural sourced, equitable trade cacao butter is pressed from the organic raw seeds of the cacao tree. Their rich, certified raw butter comes direct to us from small farmer owned lands in Bali. It will nourish, soften, soothe and moisturize your lips. Cacao butter not only improves skin elasticity but smells oh so divine.
Jojoba Oil: Their organic jojoba oil is obtained farmer direct after being cold pressed in Arizona from simmondsia chinensis beans and is actually a "liquid wax." Jojoba oil's properties are very similar to our skin's own, allowing it to be a deeply absorbed, wonderful moisturizer for the lips.
Oive Oil: Cold pressed from a fruit and used for over 5000 years...no doubt olive oil is amazing! Their Californian grown olive oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamins A & E; natural squalene properties moisturize, repair and protect your lips.
Castor Oil: A natural emollient from India, their organic, cold pressed, hexane free castor oil makes an excellent protective barrier against harsh conditions. Anti-inflammatory, healing, very soothing and deeply absorbed, it will help your lips stay soft and supple.
Candelilla Wax: They use a super high quality candelilla wax that is sustainably wild crafted from candelilla plants in Mexico. They combine this fabulous wax with their raw / cold pressed oils and butters to provide an excellent long lasting protective shield for your lips.
Flavors: All of the flavors they use in their balms are derived from 100% natural sources. Most come from pure essential oils, the others (Rootbeer, Chai Spice, Chocolate, Green Tea, Black Cherry) are made for them from 100% natural, organically derived flavor compounds through various processes of distillation and extraction.
