When The Balm Cosmetics’ founder and CEO Marissa Shipman decided to start her line of glamorous yet simple, vegan-friendly beauty products, she went for broke. She hopped over to Amazon, bought herself some books on how to create her own makeup and went to work – she even hired a chemist to help create the formulas in her own kitchen!
The Balm Cosmetics Company run the gamut with their product line, from special formulas for lips, eyes, cheeks and face, to a complete skincare line that includes cleansers and scrubs, masks, toners, creams, moisturizers and serums. With yummy names like Cranberry Invigorating Eye Cream, Strawberry Nourishing Facial Serum, Pomegranate Restorative Facial Serum, Peppermint Hydrating Face Gel and Vanilla Oil-Absorbing Face Moisturizer, these paraben-free formulas are also cruelty-free and synthetic dye-free. A few of their biggest hits are:
- Read My Lips
- Balm Shelter
- For Keeps
- Plump Your Pucker
- Shady Lady
- Meet Matt
- Hot Mama
- Pick Up Liners
Having been featured in countless beauty magazines throughout the world, The Balm is also consistently giving back. One of their recent charity involvements was with their 100% vegan Balm To The Rescue Lip Treatment, of which ALL net proceeds were donated to Pug Rescue.
