Product Testing and Safety
Our final products have not been tested on animals, but they have been used by lots of volunteers, including kids! Our ingredients are all food and/or cosmetic grade. We use preservatives in several of our products to extend the shelf life as well as to protect the health of our customers. We can make versions of our lip balm flavors which do not contain citrus essential oils if you are concerned about photosensitivity. Please contact us for details.
