Our Story

What happens when an electrical engineer with a passion for cooking can’t find the right lip balm? He does what engineers do best.  He creates it.

From a first principles standpoint, I broke down exactly what I wanted in a lip balm (organic ingredients) and what I didn’t want (chemicals).  It took me over a year to figure out the right ingredients and ratios. 

After figuring out the perfect ratio, I hand made, labeled, and packaged, over 10,000 lip balms in my tiny East Village apartment from 2015-2018.  Luckily, we’ve been able to grow and our products are now made in a manufacturing facility right here in the USA… New Jersey to be exact. 

However, we aren’t done yet.  I’m excited to announce some new products coming out soon and we are working hard to not only have our ingredients be organic and sustainable, but our packaging as well.  Thank you for your support and patience over the years.
