Dr. Bronner’s USDA Organic Body & Lip Balm
January 1, 2015
VISTA, CA – Dr. Bronner’s Organic Body Balm is formulated of pure organic beeswax, organic hemp, avocado, and jojoba oils, and is free of petro-chemically modified ingredients. An ideal unguent for extra-dry, flaky or cracked skin, or certain skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema, these balms relieve and moisturize the epidermis without leaving a slick, oily after-feel. Versatile and restorative, the body balm can be used to soothe diaper rash, heal minor burns and chapped skin, preserve and brighten new and old tattoos, protect skin during harsh winter conditions, and generally provide intense hydration to all areas of the body. Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lip Balm offers equal protection and moisture for lips in convenient cylinder applicators.
Packaged in reusable 0.5oz tins, and 0.15oz cylinder applicators respectively, the body balm and lip balm are fragranced only with the finest organic essential oils. The body balm is available in Peppermint, Orange Lavender, Naked, and Patchouli Lime. The lip balm is available in Peppermint, Orange Ginger, Naked, and Lemon Lime.
