A little bit about Penny Lane first. It was founded by two Canadian sisters from Beaver Valley. Here’s an excerpt from their About Us page:
“We are located in the beautiful Beaver Valley on 3 acres with gardens, a fruit orchard and spring fed streams running through the property. We decided to go “back to the basics” in our vegetarian and sustainable lifestyle, to grow our own food and make everything we can ourselves. So we started making personal care products for our family members and then offered them to others who wanted all natural vegan or vegetarian and toxin free products for themselves and their loved ones.”
After the lip balm I’d bought wasn’t cutting it, I knew I had to find a replacement lickity split. At the time I was already making an order with Penny Lane Organics for a few other things (veg glycerin & hemp oil) so I decided to try their lip balm as well.
I’m so glad that I did because this lip balm was da bomb! I loved the mango flavour & it did a great job of keeping my lips hydrated. Repurchase? Yes I will, once I’ve gone through the stash of other lip balms I’ve bought to try.
Note: the natural mango flavour comes from a manufacturer in the USA & is the same kind used in naturally flavoured ice cream & yogurt.
