Unlike some other artisan lip glosses, our Shimmer Gloss is crafted from natural oils that we have specifically chosen for their qualities to work well in lip gloss. Additionally, Our Shimmer Gloss base was formulated in-house rather than purchased in bulk from a commercial manufacturer. You won't find any lanolin in our Shimmer gloss because we kept the animal byproducts out of our formula. (Yes, our Shimmer Gloss is vegan). We also kept the petroleum based ingredients out of our gloss and our gloss uses a biodegradable, non-toxic glitter. (It's eco-friendly too). What we made sure to put "IN" our Shimmer Gloss was natural oils that keep your lips moisturized, soft and supple while providing a host of antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients to help protect and care for your lips.
