Beammco Cruelty Free SPF Lip Balm 3-pack
Beammco is a startup that creates stylish and functional products like their Vegan Lip Shield, which is an SPF lip balm that protects lips from both dryness and harmful UV rays. In fact while most people know to wear sun screen when they go out, many forget that dermatologists recommend that SPF be worn on the lips as well. This balm glides on smooth and protects against broad spectrum UV rays without any unpleasant tastes or smells.
Beammco was founded on a love for animals. That's why this balm is not only vegan and all natural, it was also never tested on animals and was in fact awarded a Leaping Bunny certification to show that the product was created without any cruelty to animals. Beammco is so committed to the Cruelty Free cause that a portion of every sale goes towards fighting animal testing.
Clove + Hallow Lip Crème
Clove + Hallow was founded by a makeup artist with the mission of helping those struggling with mental health issues. That's why they donate a portion of every sale of their Psych colored Lip Crème to Mental Health America.
This vegan Lip Crème is all natural and is also certified 100% cruelty free. The bold creamy colors come from its all natural ingredients, and it moisturizes the lips as well. It's absolutely perfect for anyone who wants a great look without compromising their values.
