Ecocert COSMOS Certified - 100% Natural Origin.
Know that you are literally applying vegetables to your lips and you will sense their natural taste and smell as you do so. These lip colours are lightly scented with cherry-orange-vanilla and a smidge of sweetness from organic stevia. The tartness comes from the citric acid used to preserve the pigments and of course, like all Hurraw balms these are loaded with organic cacao, coconut, and Montana grown organic safflower oil.
PLANTCOLOR™ pigments come from roots: beets, radishes and purple potatoes. Hurraw has featured the beauty of anthocyanins and betalains in their lighter, tinted lip balms and are so happy to highlight them again in these non-toxic, 100% plant-based lip colours.
As you can imagine, the process to make pigments from plants is lengthy and precious...
Like the majority of Hurraw's ingredients, these roots grew in the bright sun, soaked in the rain, were pollinated by insects, made it through a full growing season and then had lots-of-human-hands-on to complete their colouring destiny. Within a day of harvest, the root juices are extracted sprayed onto a carrier medium (maltodextrin or acacia gum), dried and milled microfine. They get tested for purity and then shipped to us for blending into our (your) balms.
