Hurraw! Balm started out of 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... 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! That is Hurraw!
And if that was not enough, they even created lip balms based on the Ayurvedic Dosha types. Ayurveda is Sanskrit for science of life and is used as the traditional medicine of India. According to Ayurveda there are three Doshas: Vata (wind), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (water & earth). These elemental forces manifest into one's mind and body characteristics. A unique combination of these three Ayurvedic principles (Doshas) are present in everyone.
For these Ayurvedic lip balms, Hurraw! infused rich, cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits and roots known to compliment each Dosha. For each dosha, they created a specific lip balm with pure essential oils and all natural flavor extracts to create a unique, long lasting, very nourishing lip balm. Melt in with creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter and emollient cold pressed organic castor oil. A lip balm from ingredients that you could eat. ;-)
