WE DIDN'T MEAN TO START A LIP BALM BUSINESS, WE SWEAR!

It was November of 2014 when Khara Koffel decided to make some all-natural, handmade lip balms for the lovely teachers and aides at the day care center where her little boy attends (wooohooo, Bright Beginnings! We love you!). She roped Megan Luckey into helping her since she knew she would have more fun that way and because Luckey is like her twin from whom she was separated at birth.

Two months later, they were making them to sell in a coffee shop. Two months after that? Etsy. A year later? Wholesale and vendor fairs. Next Stop?...

WORLD LIP BALM DOMINATION!

After more than five years of kicking ass and taking names, we’ve gotten pretty close to dominating in the lip balm world…so much so, we now have more than 15 products (not just lip balms) and hundreds of SKUs! 

Need some non-greasy whipped lotion for your dry skin? We’ve got that. Beard balm to tame a dude’s facial hair? We make that, too! How about some Bug Stuff to keep the mosquitoes from ruining your picnic or a whiskey-scented lip balm for Uncle Brian? OF COURSE WE MAKE THAT.

 THE BEST PART?

Everything we create is lovingly handmade from the best ingredients, works like a charm, and doesn’t contain any of those nasty chemicals that we all worry about.

 All-natural, handmade products is what we do and we're SERIOUS about it!
