Organic lip balms with Dagoba chocolate.user rating
Eco Lips, has created a new line of organic chocolate lip balms based on three flavors from Dagoba Chocolate’s award-winning chocolate bar collection. The Dagoba Certified Organic Chocolate Lip Balm Collection ($3.49/15-ounce tube) includes lip-smacking flavors based on favorite Dagoba organic chocolate bars: Roseberry, raspberries, rosehips and dark chocolate; Mint, dark chocolate blended with mint oil and rosemary essence; and Lavender, a combination of lavender, blueberries and dark chocolate.
Made with Dagoba chocolate’s organic cocoa powder, these USDA Certified Organic lips balms not only taste good, they contain moisturizing and soothing oils for healing protection. Mark Patterson, CEO of Eco Lips, says, “We have experimented with many food-grade ingredients in the past so it was only a matter of time until we blended chocolate into a lip balm.” He adds, “As soon as we experienced the smooth glide of the cocoa butter, and the wonderful taste and aroma of the cocoa powder, we knew we were on to something. The addition of the essential oils used to match Dagoba’s flavor profile works phenomenally well.”
And it’s not only your lips that will feel good. EcoLips founder Steve Shriver is committed to the earth. He initiated Iowa’s largest solar power project, which powers the neighborhood in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where EcoLips is located. He also organized the Organic Endurathon in Iowa in 2007, a ten-day event that included running across Iowa while educating on how to live an organic lifestyle. “I wanted to do something big to promote organics,” Shriver says. “I’m passionate about it. It’s the lifestyle I live.” He was the recipient of the 2008 Radish Award for his Organic Endurathon, which inspired people throughout the U.S. to use his Organic Marathon as a model for their own.—Denise Shoukas
