Sustainable living is a dream goal, it's up there as being of paramount importance to us and hopefully it is to you too. There is a movement of change in the air to reduce the amount of plastics used in our every day lives, from coffee cups to cotton buds and we'd like to be part of it and contribute by offering biodegradable lip balm dispensers as an everyday option.
We have put our money where our mouth is and have invested in biodegradable packaging to push forward with this movement and help reduce plastic packaging.
I have been making my own natural skincare products for many years with varying levels of success but the decision to launch Valley Mist with a lip balm product was one borne of necessity. I've always had problems with my skin in the winter months especially with dry skin and cracked lips and often found myself without a lip balm. I would end up buying three of four lip balms every year to make sure I was never without one. This process left me fed-up with the choices available in the shops and I found that most of the lip balms were made from petroleum products even when they claimed to be natural. So frustrating. I didn't want to put that waste product on my skin, never mind into my food chain! Looking at the genuine natural lip balms also left me fed up as I thought it was a shame there were none or very few British companies represented in the choices that were laid out in front of me.
