About Mongo Kiss Lip Balms
Mongo Kiss Lip Balms from Eco Lips are lip balms with fun flavors and tons of nourishment for dried, cracked, or simply moisture-deprived lips. They’re USDA Certified Organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and non-gmo lip balms made with fair trade ingredients like Certified Cocoa Butter and Mongongo Oil – a hydrating oil that comes from Zambia, Africa.
Mongongo oil is the signature ingredient in Mongo Kiss Lip Balms. African bushmen have used this oil for centuries to cleanse and keep their skin kydrated. The natural oil acts as a rich and powerful humectant, helping the lips retain moisture and acting as a barrier to prevent sun damage.
Mongo Kiss’ Mongongo oil comes from a rural village in Zambia, where a group of women work together to harvest the Mongongo fruit and process it into the healthy oil. These women provide a useful product for the masses, which we’re thankful for, and they’re able to add to their village’s income through their trade.
The Mongongo Fruit
The Mongongo fruit, sometimes referred to as a nut, is reddish brown and egg shaped. It only ripens and falls between March and May, and it contains edible flesh and a hard stone shell.
Inside the shell, the nutritious flesh and seed (which is actually the nut) can nourish the body in many ways. It’s the Mongongo nut that is processed into oil for Mongo Kiss Lip Balms. The nut oil is high in vitamin E, which is excellent for the skin. And, it’s moisturizing (attracting and retaining moisture) and capable of naturally protecting the skin from damaging UV rays.
