Bear Hill products are all natural, vegan and Non-GMO, using Food-Grade ingredients wherever possible. Some of our ingredients are organic. Some are wildcrafted or foraged. Others come from small farmers/growers who practice pesticide-free farming though they may not yet have the organic certification. We still believe in their integrity.
Why 'Food-Grade' & Non-GMO ingredients?
This is SO important for all products, but especially for Lip Balms
Since our skin absorbs everything we apply, we feel it's best to use only clean, wholesome ingredients for body care.
We use pure, food-grade arrowroot powder in all of body powders. Traditionally used for its silky texture and soothing, skin loving nature.
Sodium bicarbonate. The same food grade ingredient used in baking and cooking. All natural and can be found in a few of our powder blends.
We don't use beeswax in any of our products. We are truly vegan and do not use any animal products. Instead, we use candelilla wax, which is plant-based and responsibly sourced.
Natural powdered mineral (similar to green or white clay) commonly found in starch-free personal products.
