The EOS lip balm or the Evolution of Smooth Lip balm is made by the Kind Group’s personal care division. The company was established in 2006 and their popular product has been the EOS lip balm.
The EOS lip balm is made of hypo allergenic gluten free ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter added to beeswax. The ingredients are tested by dermatologists. EOS does not test its products on animals and parabens and artificial perfumes are not used to ensure that products are safe for use on human skin.
EOS lip balm lines include the organic line that comes in nine flavors, the active line that has two flavors, visibly soft in four flavors, the cooling chamomile medicated flavor in the medicated line, the crystal line with four flavors. The organic stick line that comes in four flavors and the shimmer line that has four flavors.
The EOS lip balm is popular because it comes in a unique user friendly sphere shaped container that has a nice grip for easy application (mapleholistics.com). All EOS lip balms retain moisture resulting in smooth and soft lips. The balm leaves a clear light shine on the lips giving the appearance of natural lip moisture.
The drawbacks of EOS lip balms are that while many natural cosmetic and skincare products add sun protection or SPF ( Sun Protection Factor) to their products, only two EOS lip balms have SPF. The two lip balms are the Lemon Twist Lip Balm and the Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm. EOS balms have caused allergies for some customers with very sensitive skin.
