Hurraw! Core Ingredients
Almond oil: Our 100% natural almond oil is pressed in California at a family-run mill from raw almond kernels. It comes direct to Hurraw! Balm office right after pressing, allowing it to be super fresh and exceptionally rich in nourishing fatty acids. Great for your lips; almond oil moisturizes, softens, soothes, and re-conditions them superbly.
Coconut oil: Raw, organic, fair trade coconut oil direct from Mexico (less travel=less pollution) that has been extracted using a centrifuged method. This method gently separates fresh coconuts and allows a pure raw oil to be obtained. The result is amazing. Coconut oil is a fabulous moisturizer, a great free radical buster and super soothing for chronic lip inflammation.
Cacao butter: Natural sourced, equitable trade cacao butter is pressed from the organic raw seeds of the cacao tree. Certified raw butter comes direct to Hurraw! Balm office from small farmer owned lands in Bali. It will nourish, soften, soothe and moisturize your lips. Cacao butter not only improves skin elasticity but smells oh so divine.
Jojoba oil: Organic jojoba oil is obtained farmer direct after being cold pressed in Arizona from simmondsia chinensis beans and is actually a "liquid wax." Jojoba oil's properties are very similar to our skin's own, allowing it to be a deeply absorbed, wonderful moisturizer for the lips.
Olive oil: Cold pressed from a fruit and used for over 5000 years...no doubt olive oil is amazing! Californian grown olive oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamins A & E; natural squalene properties moisturize, repair and protect your lips.
Castor oil: A natural emollient from India, our organic, cold pressed, hexane free castor oil makes an excellent protective barrier against harsh conditions. Anti-inflammatory, healing, very soothing and deeply absorbed, it will help your lips stay soft and supple.
Candelilla wax: Hurraw! Balm uses very high quality candelilla wax that is sustainably wildcrafted from candelilla plants in Mexico. It is combined with raw/cold pressed oils and butters to provide an excellent long lasting protective shield for your lips.
Flavors: All of the flavors used in Hurraw! Balms are derived from 100% natural sources. Most come from pure essential oils, the others (Rootbeer, Chai Spice, Chocolate, Green Tea, Black Cherry) are specially made from 100% natural, organically derived flavor compounds through various processes of distillation and extraction.
Hurraw! Balm is a Certified Vegan product! Vegan means no animal products (ie: beeswax). Hurraw! Balm products are proudly CCIC approved. The CCIC provides the leaping bunny logo which assures our cruelty free standards (no animals are used/harmed/tested on in any stage of the manufacture of our product, including our suppliers).
Hurraw! Balm contains certified organic, raw, cold pressed and centrifuged extracted, nut/seed oils and butters that have been processed below 118F degrees and are still chocked full of their essential nutrients and enzymes. Although more expensive, the quality of raw oils and butters is superb and you'll feel the difference!
Oils and butters are gently warmed and seperate from the candelilla wax (which melts at 155F). They are then combined at a high speed which keeps the overall temperature low and also why you might get a lucky tube with a few tiny air bubbles on top! The mixture is then hand pour into custom made tube cooling trays ... your lips will be stoked!

All Hurraw! Balm products contain NO petroleum, parabens, preservatives, artifical flavors or colors. Did you know the shine in many lipsticks and glosses come from petroleum jelly (a bi-product of oil drilling linked to many health problems including cancer). A recent statistic showed that over the course of a decade regular users of lip products containing petroleum, can end up ingesting seven pounds of the stuff...essentially it's like drinking gasoline. Ugh!
Hurraw! Balm lives in Whitefish, Montana, USA; a tiny ski town nestled among the amazing peaks of Glacier National Park.
