Hurraw are always thinking (ok, obsessing) about unique, beneficial and all natural balm combos. Decidedly, they took a challenge; to create balms based on basic Ayurvedic Dosha principles* Ayurvedic who? Dosha what? Hurraw is lucky to have an Ayurvedic practitioner in the crew. Talk about obsessed! After two years of diligently formulating their asanas off, satisfaction arose.
Hurraw infuse rich, cold pressed organic sesame seed oil with plants, fruits and roots known to compliment each Dosha. They melt in their creamy raw organic coconut oil, rich raw organic cacao butter and emollient cold pressed organic castor oil. They mingle in a trio of flavors from pure essential oils and all natural flavor extracts to create a unique, long lasting, very nourishing lip balm.
