Makeup and cosmetics are manufactured all over the world. From expensive high end facilities to smaller labs and start ups. Because of this open-eneded manufacturing space cosmetics can contain all sorts of ingredients from the good to not so good.
It was always really important to me to know the ingredients that are in the products I put on my skin. And because of that I'm super picky about how Hello Wink is made. So much so, that I still make every single product myself.
Yes! You read that right. Ever. Single. Lip Balm is hand poured by me and created in-house. My family jokes that I'll never be able to let go of production. But as much as that might be true there is something really satisfying knowing that every lip balm is hand mixed and poured to my exact specifications, because I made it myself.
I also like to keep the ingredients as minimal as possible. Our lip balm base is made with just a few simple ingredients. Candelilla Wax, Castor Oil. Shea Butter, Olive Oil and Mango Butter. That's it!
