This product ticks every box for us--local, no plastic packaging, and a business that gives back to its community and environment. And their branding is so excellent!

Why "Little Otter"?
Jess, our founder, as a child learned about otters and grew to love their playful, water-loving ways. It seemed like a perfect name for our good-for-you, all-natural products, that Otters would approve of!
What’s in your Lip Balm?
We make our lip balm in Atlanta, Georgia from just four natural and organic ingredients in small batches, with zero additives.
All Natural Beeswax
Beeswax is a natural substance created by workers bees and used by female bees to build honeycomb cells of beehives. After honey is extracted, the wax honeycombs are used for items like natural candles and balms like ours.
Beeswax is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and an antioxidant that is rich in vitamin A and a natural skin moisturizer.
Our beeswax comes from a third-generation family of beekeepers.
Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is an anti-oxidant that deeply soothes and hydrates skin. Sourced in Sri Lanka and the Philippines, our unrefined oil is made from the white inner fruit of coconuts that are dried, cold-pressed, and then centrifuged to remove fine proteins and clarify the oil.
Organic Peppermint Oil
Peppermint, used as a medicinal plant for centuries, is rich in vitamins A and C, potassium, and other nutrients. Our peppermint is sourced from France and India.
Organic Rosemary Oil
One of the "oils of protection," rosemary is a gentle plant, well-known for its regenerating and stimulating properties on the skin, hair, joints, nervous and respiratory systems. This wild-harvested plant comes from France and South Africa.
Why Paper Packaging?
Our paper tubes contain 50% more lip balm than conventional plastic tubes.
But the main reason for our unique paper tube is to help eliminate plastic from the environment, as our paper tubes are bio 100% compostable, biodegradable, printed with soy-based ink, and can safely be discarded after they’re used up.
How Else Are you Helping the Environment?
We donate 10% of our net profits (sales minus product and production costs) to non-profits with clean water focuses, including:
- Environment Georgia
- Chattahoochee Riverkeeper
- Emory University Rollins School of Public Health
Tell Me More about Otters
Otters are known for their sociability (most species) and importance to aquatic ecosystems, where they are predators of noxious species such as sea urchins, which can devastate kelp forests. Not to mention, otters are active groomers, cleaning the fur on their faces with their paws.
Otters are lively animals and appear to engage in various behaviors for sheer enjoyment, such as making waterslides and then sliding on them into the water. They may also find and play with small stones. Different species vary in their social structure, with some being largely solitary, while others live in groups – in a few species these groups may be fairly large.
