Perk up your senses while nourishing your lips with the smart combination of organic Zambian mongongo oil, Fair Trade Certified™ cocoa butter and organic peppermint essential oil.  Pep in a balm!

Mongongo oil is used as a body rub by the !Kung bushmen of the Kalahari to cleanse and moisturize their skin, and protect it against the harsh desert environment.

The same tribe also eats the Mongongo fruit as their primary food.  The nuts also contain: calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, and high concentrations of vitamin E.  The !Kung bushmen are one of the few peoples of the world whose blood pressure does not increase with age

Mongongo Oil is sourced from a rural village in Zambia, Africa.   A social worker noticed the opportunity to help a group of women create an income by starting a business and learning how to efficiently harvest, process and perform quality assurance.  The goal was to help them create more self-worth while increasing their net-worth.

We use a variety of nut oils in our products. Some studies have shown that refined nut oils do not contain the proteinaceous material known to cause allergic reaction and therefore are highly unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. However, every person is unique, and we recommend that if you suffer from nut allergies, read the ingredients before purchasing our product. If a skin reaction does occur, discontinue use and discuss with your physician.

Amazing Lip Balm!

The Mongo Kiss Peppermint lip balm is one of the best I've ever used.  It smells amazing and glides on very easily.  You only need a little and your lips feel instantly hydrated, and it lasts for a long time.  I definitely recommend this product.
Moisturizing and Minty
By: Mary T, 2/17/2015
Very nice lip balm. Smells minty, good scent.  Very moisturizing.  The wide size of the balm container (much wider than the traditional balm -- maybe 1.5 x wider?) is a plus.  

The ORGANIC sunflower oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, peppermint oil, mongongo oil, rosemary extract & calendula extract:  Thumbs up!

Peppermint content:  It's up there, alright, a peppermint-lover delight.  You can tell by the big "zing" and peppermint smell on your lips.  The balm has more peppermint oil than mongongo oil too.  Mentha piperita: great choice of mint (Mentha spicata, aka spearmint, is nice too).  

Thanks, EcoLips, and Zambian ladies and Kalahari bushmen!
