Calendula and Orange Lip Balm

When I discontinued the previous lip balms I made I felt a bit bereft, although I had plenty of them to last me! But I’ve been asked a lot if I’d bring back a lip balm to the Maldon Soap range and I thought about it and decided I would – and here it is! Instead of bringing back the same ones I’ve reformulated the calendula and shea one and it’s now super powered and called Calendula and Orange Lip Balm!

Since ditching the plastic tubes and now ditching the plastic pots as well I couldn’t really put the lip balm in a glass pot because a) it’s not practical and b) the smallest glass jars I can get are 15ml which is massive for a lip balm so I’ve sourced some cutesy little aluminium screw top pots which hold around 8-10 ml of lip balm which will last for absolutely yonks!  Plus they are light and practical to use, they’re great for kids to keep in their school bag and they’re not remotely girly so even chaps won’t feel silly about using it – not that they ever do feel silly about using Maldon Soap stuff of course!

Oh and it’s orange flavour/scented.  And, of course, it’s Vegan.  I mean come on, have I ticked all the boxes or what?

See below for more info (as if you needed more of an incentive to get this)!

I have a bit of a thing for lip balm! It doesn’t matter what time of year it is I always need to use it.

Calendula and Orange Lip Balm is fantastically moisturising and nurturing for your lips.  Made from gorgeous organic butters and oils it also contains orange wax which is a deeply concentrated wax made from orange peel so it’s food safe and smells just incredible! It’s what gives the lip balm it’s gorgeous naturally orange colour.

Apply whenever needed.  A little goes a very long way.  In winter you may need to dig a little out with your thumb nail and apply it that way but it’s fine in summer!

What’s in Calendula and Orange Lip Balm?

Calendula petals infused in sunflower oil: These calendula petals are from my garden and they have been infusing in sunflower oil for about two weeks so all the calendula-ry goodness has come out of them and gone into the oil.  Sunflower oil is lovely and slippery and helps the lip balm slide on.

Carnauba wax: A vegan wax which works in a similar way to beeswax, it conditions and thickens the balm and makes it, well, a balm.

Organic cocoa butter: Gorgeously moisturising and great for softening skin.

Organic shea butter: Again, a great moisturiser and helps to fade scarring.

Coconut oil: Wonder product that’s good for everything so a great addition to any beauty product.

Olive oil: Gives the lips a bit of a sheen when the balm is applied.

Jojoba oil: An incredible waxy oil which mimics the minerals in skins sebum so it’s like putting your own moisture back on your skin.

Orange wax: A semi-solid wax which comes from orange peel.  The wax in the peel protects the fruit against the environment and allows it to breathe and keep it’s water balance.  Orange wax offers the same protection to your skin.

Quantative ingredients of calendula and orange lip balm:

sunflower oil infused with calendula petals (helianthus annus), carnauba wax (copernica prunifera), organic cocoa butter (theobroma cacao), organic shea butter (butyrospermium parkii), coconut oil (cocos nucifera), olive oil (olea europaea), jojoba oil (simmondsia chinensis), orange wax (citrus aurantium dulcis).

    I’ve been a fan of Sue’s ‘lip balms’ for a while now and was so pleased to see them make a return! I have to say, this new orange creation is ‘fabulous’!! Gorgeous scent (and taste – just got to try and not lick it all off)!! Very smooth and moisturising which is a real bonus as I have to apply lip balm every day and last thing at night. A little really does go a long way and it lasts for ages once applied. Absolutely love this little tin of wonder balm.

    I have always loved lip balm but this one is definitely a winner for me. Just a tiny slick on my lips and I feel great. It’s lasts for ages and tastes of orange. It’s lipfantatasic!

    This was one of my first purchases from the Maldon soap company and I was hooked straight away. Great taste, lasts for ages and does not dry out your lips needing repeated applications. Neat metal tin fits compfortably in my pocket on hand whenever I need it.
