Through June 1, 2020, Eco Lips donated 20% from every online purchase to the Frontline Hero Fund, a non-profit to help financially support families of Frontline Heroes who have passed away or are critically ill from COVID-19. Funding from donations is directed toward funeral expenses, food and other critical needs so families can focus on healing.

“Right now we’ve all been increasing hand-washing and hand sanitizing but it’s been taking a toll on our hands, causing extreme dry skin, especially for health professionals who wash and sanitize more than anyone,” said CEO and Founder of Eco Lips, Steve Shriver. “I’m really proud of our new Hand & Body Balm. It’s perfect for moisturizing every day, all day long if you need it. We even designed the blue color used on our label to symbolize the typical blue scrubs worn by frontline workers.”

The Hand & Body Balm is a gentle moisturizer designed in a stick form. The soothing formula features Fair Trade-Certified cocoa butter, which is high in fatty acids to help nourish and provide a protective barrier over the skin; and is paired with organic beeswax and organic coconut oil with no added fragrances or flavors. The convenient, 0.56 oz-sized balm makes for an accessible, natural remedy for daily use at home or on-the-go.

“As a B-corporation, we have an obligation to be socially responsible,” continued Shriver. “With that, we are always looking for opportunities to use our business as a force for doing good. We can’t think of a better way to honor our front-line workers than giving to an organization that helps them and their families directly.”

Ingredients (Hand & Body Balm): Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cera Flava (Beeswax), Mixed Tocopherols (Vitamin E).
