Let's talk carrots. Purple carrots!
Their unique color reflects anthocyanins; the prominent colorant (flavonoid) responsible for the red, purple, and blue hues found in fruits, vegetables and flowers.
In the body, anthocyanins have demonstrated amazing abilities to protect against disease. On lips, they give a sheer berry tint.
Beautiful hued purple carrot extract is blended with omega fatty acid rich echium seed oil and bestowed with a tart, delectable raspberry flavor. You're welcome.
100% plant based color = no iron oxides (metal), carmine (cochineal insect) or d&c lake dyes (petroleum).
The tint of the Echium Raspberry Balm can vary in color. Although we craft each batch with precision and aim to make every balm the "same," please know that our plant inclusion strengths will vary based on seasonal growing fluctuations and is somewhat expected when using 100% plant based ingredients.

I didn't expect this tinted lip balm to be so noticeable on the lips... Once applied, its colour is not really red but rather fuchsia, a darker, in-your-face shade of pink. It makes my lips stand out in my face - but not in a good way. If you've ever seen old black-and-white photograph portaits from before colour photography was invented which had been hand-coloured to make them look "more life-like", you will know what I mean. I'm also not very keen on the scent. It fades away fairly quickly, but while it's there, I keep wanting to wipe it off. This was my first Hurraw tinted balm and I'm afraid it will be my last.
Hydrating, very beautiful color.
I was not expecting it to be as pigmented as it is. It gives the lips a rosy, nourished and natural look.
