Four simple ingredients.

We make each balm by hand from just four healing botanical ingredients:

  • Cocos nucifera | organic coconut oil
  • Cera alba | beeswax (cire d'abeille)
  • Mentha piperita | organic peppermint oil
  • Rosmarinus officinalis | organic rosemary oil

Beeswax
Cera alba (cire d'abeille)
Beeswax is a natural substance created by workers bees and used by female bees to build the honeycomb cells of beehives. When beekeepers extract honey from a hive, they remove beeswax caps and can use them to produce candles, waxes and balms. Natural beeswax is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and an antioxidant that is rich in vitamin a. It is an excellent emulsifier that locks in moisture, softens and protects the skin. Our 100% natural yellow beeswax is hand-harvested in the United States.

Coconut Oil
Cocos nucifera (organic)
Dense in medium chain fatty acids and in lauric, linoleic and caprylic acids, coconut oil is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and an antioxidant that deeply hydrates and soothes the skin. Our raw, virgin, unrefined coconut oil is made from the white inner fruit of coconuts that are dried and cold-pressed, then centrifuged to remove fine proteins and clarify the oil. This plant is cultivated in Sri Lanka and the Philippines.

Peppermint
Mentha pepperita (organic)
From the lamiaceae family, peppermint is among the oldest and most continuously used medicinal plants. Rich in vitamin a, vitamin c, potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, magnesium, calcium, manganese and copper, peppermint sharpens mental focus, improves concentration and promotes circulation. The oil is antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic. It is obtained by steam distillation of the flowering tops. This plant is cultivated in France and India. This Botanically and Biochemically Defined Essential Oil (HEBBD) is classified as a natural aroma (edible).

Rosemary 
Rosmarinus officinalis (organic)
From the lamiaceae family, rosemary produces a primal essential oil due to its regulating properties for the hepatobiliary system. One of the "oils of protection," rosemary verbenone is a gentle plant that is well-known for its regenerating and stimulating properties on the skin, hair, joints, nervous and respiratory systems. Used in teas to help increase focus and circulation, its herbaceous scent clarifies and energizes the mind. It is obtained by steam distillation of the flowering tops. This wild-harvested plant comes from France and South Africa. This Botanically and Biochemically Defined Essential Oil (HEBBD) is classified as a natural aroma (edible).

Good to know

Our 100% organic essential oils are gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) tested in France for purity and authenticity. Each batch undergoes organoleptic, physicochemical and microbiological analysis and is traceable from individual distillation in Provence, France, to formulation in Atlanta, Georgia, to arrival at your door.

Organic farming certification follows European Union Ecocert Greenlife and Ecocert Cosmos Regulations 834/2007, 889/2008 and 1235/2008. These certifications are reciprocal with USDA Organic Certification through the American National Organic Program. 

Our 100% natural yellow beeswax is hand-harvested by fourth-generation beekeepers. The family spends summer and early fall in Pukwana, South Dakota harvesting hives for clover honey, and winter and spring in Live Oak, Florida, harvesting gallberry and orange blossom honey.

We love animals and do not test on them. Little Otter Lip Balms are 100% vegetarian and cruelty-free.

Amazing Lip Balm

Hands down the best lip balm I’ve used to date. Others give me the feeling of having to re-apply every hour or less. Little Otter makes it so that I can apply once in the morning and be done. My lips even look healthier!

Not just for lips

This is a great lip balm with a luscious texture, generously portioned and thoughtfully packaged. I also use it as a balm for small skin irritations, cuticles, itchy bites, etc. Easy to carry and always have at hand.

Wonderful product.

I've been using this lip balm for two months and still have plenty left in my first tube. My daughters love it and the paper tubing has held up well in their pockets and backpacks. The peppermint is subtle and refreshing. Loving it so much for not upsetting my sensitive rosacea prone skin and keeping my lips moisturized throughout the day.
