Vermont weather can be very cold and very dry throughout a large part of the year. With an average annual high of just 55.2˚F and an often deceptively few number of days with precipitation from October through March, many Vermonters wrestle with dry/cracked hands, lips, and feet.
In the mountains, where we live, it can be especially cold, dry, and windy. In fact, our poor little humidifier works round the clock in the Winter months, but usually fails to move the needle much more than a few percentage points of relative humidity. : (
I’ve long been a fan of lip balms given the harsh dryness that ensues in Vermont for half the year—and by fan I mean mindless adherent due to necessity. But most lip balms don’t actually moisturize. What they actually attempt to do is seal your lips in an effort to preserve what little moisture you have around this area of your body—which isn’t much since your lips don’t naturally produce oil.
In addition, several lip balms contain petroleum by-products, artificial dyes, artificial colors, and heavy metals. I don’t know about you, but I just want moisturized lips, the unnecessary additives can stay home.
This is why we created the Vermont Simple Lip Balm. It has just six simple ingredients:
This infusion of nut and fruit butters/oils is loaded with naturally occurring vitamins (vitamin E especially) and antioxidants. What’s more, we arduously sought out the highest quality-natural-lip-safe flavor oils currently available. In fact, our natural flavor oils are made on the day we place the order from our manufacturer to ensure freshness. This adds time and expense to the process of making our lip balms, but it’s a cost we’re willing to bear.
Our high quality natural ingredients aren’t the only attribute Vermont Simple Lip Balms bring to the table. Despite our out-of-this-world focus on quality our lip balms don’t have out-of-this-world prices.
We have an array of fun and delectable lip balms flavors:
With just six simple ingredients, the Vermont Simple Lip Balm is one you can feel good about using. We’ve enjoyed the process of perfecting this product, and we’re delighted to share it with you.

The success of the Vermont Simple Soy Candle was never supposed to happen. When Sheri came to me with the idea of launching the company that eventually became Vermont Simple Beauty, there was no discussion about candles. We talked about lip balm, moisturizers, scrubs, even makeup (sort of glad that one didn't pan out), but not a word about candles.

Winters in Vermont are well known for their unrelenting brutality. Needless to say, we hold on to our moisturizers pretty tightly as we struggle through a long season of dry skin brought on by cold, dry, and windy conditions.
What has often been a source of frustration for Vermonters proved to be a pretty good test lab for Vermont Simple Beauty as we set out to create a great general use moisturizer.
