SOLIDSILK® Lip Butter | Vanilla Cloud
Why do we call it a lip butter instead of a lip balm, or chapstick? Well, lip balm generally found in stores is oily and comes off within an hour or two. This lip butter is made with nourishing, premium cocoa butter that will stay on your lips for an extended period (usually lasts 4-8 hours on the lips). It feels like a rich butter and has a matte finish.
Size: This waste-conscious paperboard tube is 0.3 oz, which is about 2 times bigger than a typical lip balm size. Should last for several months to a year. When it does finally run out compost the recycled paper tube and black bamboo tape.
Shelf life: This product is most fresh when used within 18 months of purchase. Best stored in a cool place to keep it fresher longer.
Storage: As with any natural product, do not leave it in your car or directly in the hot sun to melt in the heat. It could melt and spill if it gets REALLY hot, and the constant heating and cooling will reduce its freshness. Under normal summer temperatures and shipping it does not typically melt.
Package materials: Paperboard tube, coated with less than 1% of a cornstarch and sugarcane membrane (certified compostable). This prevents grease spots on the outside of the tube and prevents the design from rubbing off in your purse or pocket.
End of life: Commercially compost or recycle the paperboard tube and cornstarch and sugarcane membrane and paper sticker. If home composting, it will take 12+ months. Commercial composting will break down faster, in a few months since it reaches higher temperatures. It can be curbside recycled in the bin as well if it's cleaned out.
