The Face Behind Dearest Lips
Hello! I’m Glaiza, the founder and maker behind Dearest Lips. I’m a wife and mother of three, who are my biggest supporters! Based in Western Sydney Australia; where all the magic happens.
I began running my small business in November 2018 to bring my passion to life – to share my love of lip balms and desire for a sustainable future with others. Instead of our lip balm tubes ending up in landfill waste or our beautiful oceans, they are returned to Mother Nature through composting. No harm done to the environment and animals.
I carry a lip balm with me everywhere I go, especially when I’m exploring the outdoors. I love hiking and getting lost in nature; to soak in the silence and simply surround myself with breathtaking scenery and wildlife.
I hope you love our products just as much as I love making them for you 🙂
What Sets Us Apart?
Dearest Lips has a strong focus on being a plastic-free, zero waste and sustainable business. Our goal is to have more and more people switch to using our compostable, non-toxic lip balm, instead of the billions of plastic tubes that end up in landfill each year.
Natural – We formulate our products using simple ingredients in their natural form. They do not contain any toxic and harmful chemicals and are free from artificial preservatives and synthetic fragrances.
Vegan – We do not use any animal ingredients or by-products. We only test our products on willing family and friends, never on animals.
Eco-friendly – Our packaging is 100% biodegradable and can be thrown into your home compost bin once empty. It will take 3-4 months to break down.
Giving Back To The Local Community
Supporting a not-for-profit charity is something we are passionate about. We believe that supporting local can leave a big and positive impact to so many hardworking volunteers. We are happy to announce that we will continually donate 10% of our profits each month to Carevan Blacktown.
Carevan Blacktown is comprised of a group of dedicated volunteers, providing a weekly meal service in a local setting and engaging the care and generosity of the community, passing this on to those most in need.
Our donations go towards eco-friendly utensils for the amazing team to use when serving meals. Funds raised will also help keep their initiative alive through other means such as petrol, food, bills etc. required to run the charity.
We are happy to be able to partner with a selfless initiative that creates a sense of identity, belonging and achievement in the most vulnerable members of the community.
