What makes the Eco Lip Balm so good?
Moisturizing, 100% natural and long-lasting, Koaino Eco Lip Balm come in a compostable paperboard tube. Koaino lip balms are handmade in small batches in Clarence Creek, Ontario using only natural ingredients that are healthy for you and our environment.
All of the Koaino eco lip balms are scented with 100% essential oils and do not contain chemicals or fillers such as hormone-disrupting phthalates, parabens, preservatives, chemical fragrances or dyes. When applied indoors, the balm softens and has the faintest hint of sheen from the oils in the balm. If you’re on the fence about which flavor, Peppermint is the most popular!

How to use
These push-up style tubes don’t have the turning mechanism nor the ability to be retracted that the plastic tubes do, so they do take a little getting used to. If the lip balm is cold, it mat be difficult to push up. If you are having difficulty pushing up the product try warming it with the heat of your hands. We recommend pushing up the outer edge of the bottom disc and once the product moves, then carefully pushing up from the center.
About Koaino Soaps
Koaino Soaps started operating in 2014 in Clarence, Ontario K0A 1N0. The postal code is where their company name comes from. They began with a few bar soaps but by 2015 started making lip balm. Their recipe was very well received by their customers and quickly became one of their most popular items. Koaino Soaps is a one-women business, owned and operated by Rebecca. The reason for beginning the business was to provide all natural handmade products for their family.
Rebecca’s family has always been eco-conscious. But, after the birth of their first daughter in 2014, it became more and more apparent that plastic, especially single-use plastic was polluting our oceans and planet at an alarming rate! They continued to produce their lip balms in plastic tubes until they found a supplier that was able to work with them and provide a quality product that was plastic-free.
In 2018, Koaino committed to switching all their packaging to plastic-free and since January 2019, their products are all packaged plastic-free.
The demand for our unique eco products has been overwhelming. This demand has allowed them to grow from a small local family business that sells exclusively at farmers markets to a province wide supplier of zero-waste natural products. More than anything they are so happy that there are so many people concerned about reducing their single-use plastic consumption!
