Why You’ll Love It

Unflavored for the purist, this Mongo Kiss lip balm celebrates the simplicity of organic Zambian mongongo oil, Fair Trade Certified cocoa butter, and vitamin E. Mongongo oil is used as a body rub by the Kung bushmen of the Kalahari in Africa to cleanse and moisturize their skin, as well as protect it against the harsh desert environment. For chapped, dry lips it's a godsend, delivering quick nourishment thanks to mongongo's calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, and high concentrations of vitamin E.

About This Brand

In the early 1990s, Andrea Danielson began brewing small batches of natural lip balm in her kitchen for her friends and family. She took great care in handcrafting the balm and packaging it in small amber glass jars to preserve the freshness of the pure ingredients. Andrea didn’t realize that by giving a sample of her natural lip creation to Steve Shriver, her life would be changed forever. Having larger than average lips, Steve was continually searching for a better lip balm. When Steve met Andrea in 1995, he immediately fell in love with the lip balm, and moments later he also fell in love with Andrea. They were married in 1997 and Steve, a lifetime entrepreneur, quickly spent Andrea’s life savings on ingredients and packaging for the couple’s first product, Hemp Lip Buzz. By 2003, Steve and Andrea had built a specialized private label natural body care company focusing on making high quality products for many other successful brands. Their company rapidly became a...

Reviews For Unflavored Lip Balm

Based on 18 Reviews

Love it

I love this lip balm. Gave it to some friends for a holiday gift and they loved it too.

- Jennifer


This lip balm is one of my favorites. I love how the tube is slightly larger than your average and the formula is extremely moisturizing. I bought three and will be buying more soon!

- Sam


Personally, I really like the product. If you have a tendency to inadvertently lick chapstick off your lips soon after applying, this may be your cure. My lips felt soft and there was no annoying smell. It does leave a little shine though (which I didn't mind).

- Jess

amazing lip balm

love this lip balm so much. I bought 2

- Gabrielle


seems OK, better than chapstick

- Kathleen Murray


I have very sensitive skin and dry lips so I'm always looking for a lip balm that really works. I was using a different lip balm that was ridiculously expensive so I thought why now throw this in my cart and give it a try. Well my lips and budget are happy I did. It keeps my lips soft and moisturized all day and I love that it doesn't have a scent to it.

- Ashley

Soft lips

I'm a sucker for a great chap stick and I was really impressed by this product. I have the unflavored and mint one and I love them equally. The product is simply made and works well as a chapstick or under your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. It keeps your lips soft and hydrated without all the added chemicals found in other brands. Give this a try!

- Tala

Unscented Bliss

I hate lip balms that are scented because more often than not they weren't considering male users when they scented their product. I really like this lip balm. It soothes dry lips and it heals cracking with ease. Highly recommend this lip balm!

- Palmer


I got this lip balm after I was outside in the snow all day and my lips were dry, cracked, and hurting. It cost much more in store, so I'll be sure to purchase from here next time. It healed my lips after the first night of using it regularly and i haven't had any issues since. Love this lip balm!

- Beverly Quincy


This lip balm is great. I am very picky about my lip balm, and I am sensitive to smells, so I was so happy to discover this lip balm. It is wonderfully smooth with no odd fragrance. Recommended.

- Kimberly


Love this! After one application my lips feel better and I don't need to keep applying.

- Christine

Smooth lips

This is great lip balm, and perfect for people like me that don't like colored and flavored balms. It works wonderfully. Keeps my lips smooth and soft.

It is available for a great price too. It's actually cheaper through Thrive Market than it is to buy other name brands at the big box stores!

- Arlene Rose

Pretty plain

This is a really great lip balm. It helps with my wind chapped lips in the winter. You don't have to reapply it over and over again.

However, I prefer flavored lip balms. This is unflavored so it's pretty boring. But it does work.

- Magen Traut

Not just for women

This is a lip balm that is not just for women. Sadly, the lip balm market is one aimed at women and leaving no consideration to the men of the world. Mango Kiss's unflavored lip balm is perfect. I love it. It helps my lips stay hydrated and helps after they already are chapped. And I love that it is unflavored/scented because then other than a little shine no one can even tell I'm wearing it. It is small and fits in my pocket making it discreet as well. Love that it protects my lips without being obvious or making me look girly.

- Steven

Love the Shine

This lip balm doesn't completely heal my chapped lips, but it does keep them from getting any worse and leaves a great shine to my lips that I love. I like to throw a little of this over my lip stick to keep it from looking dull or like it's been on for hours longer than it actually has. I love that it is flavorless because I am not really a fan of flavored lip balms. This is over all a great lip balm and I absolutely love it!

- Stephanie N.

Great Lip Balm with a Backstory!

After finding out that Eco Lips is based near my home, I've been a faithful user. They have amazing lip balm that works really well. Some of it isn't as good, but some of it, like Mongo Kiss, are amazing. This one has no flavor to it, but it does leave a gentle sheen on the lips. It doesn't seem to fix seriously-chapped lips, but it does keep my lips from getting chapped and dry in the first place. I love that it doesn't have a taste so I'm not particularly tempted to eat it off of my lips. It goes on nicely, feels really smooth, and isn't chunky. Definitely love it!

- Kylisha M.

Great for lips and skin

I confess that I was so taken with the all-natural ingredients in this balm, that I've actually wrapped some on my palms.

The balm is made from Mongongo oil that the people in that part of the world have been using as a moisturizer, and believe me, it works. It's impractical to use a balm for anything other than your lips, but I'm on the prowl now for some of that oil for the rest of my body because it's made my lips look like a newborn's!

- Layla J.

Socially conscious lip balm

Mongo kiss lip balm is a natural balm that works great for dry and chapped lips.

But honestly, it's all about what the company is doing to help the people in Mogongo become more self-sufficient. I love that I can help support a company that is committed to providing self-sustaining aid to people who might not otherwise get the help they deserve. Even if this balm was horrible, and it's far from that, this product would get five stars.
