The Best Vegan Lip Balm

This cold weather plays havoc with my skin, and often leaves my lips feeling dry and chapped, so I’ve been taking time to search for a lip salve that works efficiently, and also meets my requirements in a product. I’m sure many of you know me by now, I have a checklist; I like vegan, natural, sustainably sourced ingredients, eco packaging, non animal tested and I really like to support small businesses too. And on top of all of that, I still want the product to work efficiently and look beautiful in my bathroom. Ok, I know I’m asking for a lot, but when I found Sister and Co their products were a perfect fit.

Sister and Co products contain food grade ingredients like organic nut butters and cold pressed essential oils to heal and nourish the body.

Sister and Co was founded by Sophie Thomson, after she went on a yoga retreat in Goa. While there, Sophie began using raw coconut oil on her skin, and noticed her skin cleared up completely. When she returned home, Sophie wanted to continue with this routine, but couldn’t find anything as pure or natural, as the coconut oil she had been using in Goa. She was disappointed also to find, many of the natural ingredient beauty products still contained chemical fillers, preservatives and synthetic fragrance. So Sophie began developing products and this beautiful range of Sister and Co products is the result.

Packaging is simple yet stylish

The first thing I noticed and love about this Sister and Co lip tonic, is although the products are natural, they still feel luxury and high end. I need a natural product, but I also want it to work and look stylish. Even the name, Raw Coconut Lemon Myrtle and Wild Mint Lip Tonic , sounds delicious!

There are no chemical preservatives, fillers or synthetic fragrances in any of the products and they are never tested on animals.

When you put the tonic on your lips, the taste is quite incredible. I can really taste the lemon and mint yet it still obviously feels and tastes very natural. We lick our lips constantly and we have to worry how much of our lip salves and lipstick end up in our stomach. Research has shown that women who wear lipstick and lip salve, may ingest up to four pounds during their lifetime. This is quite a terrifying prospect; That information alone, makes me happy to have found a food grade ingredient lip salve.

The products have attracted a lot of Press, and have been featured in many magazines including Vogue, Elle, Grazia and Red.

My lips have been so much more moisturised, and I’ve experienced no chapping at all since I’ve been using this lip tonic, so I’m very happy to share this company with you all, and I hope you all enjoy this gorgeous range.

If you would like to try any of the Sister and Co products, here is a list of their stockists or you can purchase them online here

If you would like to try the Lemon Myrtle and Wild Mint Lip Balm it retails at £9 and you can purchase it here.

Throughout March to mark International Women’s Day 10% of all Sister and Co proceeds will be donated to Solace Women’s Aid

About Me

Hi, I’m Natalie Shirlaw, a professional hair stylist on a personal wellness journey.

My aim is to help women live a more natural life that will leave them looking and feeling amazing. Ever since I was 10 I’ve been fascinated with the hairdressing business and officially started working when I was 14. I’ve worked in some of the top UK salons and for some of the best hairdressers in the world, and I now have my own salon in Kent.

 As a hairdresser I’ve always wanted to give my clients the latest and best products and even ended up being a technical consultant for L’Oreal, but one thing was common throughout my career - 

I am passionate about finding natural and organic products that work just as well as the big brand alternatives, and that are ultimately better for you too. For over 10 years I’ve been actively researching, and testing as many products that I can. Everything from skincare, to makeup, to food and even home wear. I’ve been incorporating these products and tactics into my daily life since and I’ve never felt better. Outside of my regular work I’ve studied martial arts and other Eastern practices like Reiki, meditation, Feng Shui, EFT and NLP.

 So as you can see I’m a big advocate for all around healthy and natural living. I’ll be sharing my best tips, tactics and products here, that you can implement easily to live a more natural life, where you can feel and look amazing. I’m really excited to have you with me on this journey and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together!
