Every girl appreciates a good lip balm. EOS lip balms provide excellent protection to keep lips from becoming dry and chapped with their infusions of natural emollients and essential oils. They also contain sunscreens or added protection from the elements and a hint of flavor for an all-around enjoyable lip-smoothing experience.
In 2009, seemingly out of nowhere, these nifty, colorful little orbs began to appear on retail shelves everywhere: Walgreens, Target, Walmart. Ads popped up in Seventeen and Cosmo magazines as well as others, and suddenly, they were turning up in the hands of the most glamorous celebrities like the Kardashians, Selena Gomez, and countless others.
EOS lip balms are available in traditional stick form, however they are best known – and loved – for their popular round case shape. Hydrating ingredients such as Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, and Shea Butter help EOS lip balm to deliver a wonderfully soft salve to the lips, creating a deep, soothing moisturizing effect.
These awesome little spheres from EOS (an acronym or their maker, Evolution of Smooth) quickly became the second best-selling lip balm in the United States (with Burt’s Bees holding the #1 position), with current sales at one million plus products per week and a projected $2 billion lip care market worldwide by the year 2020. The company’s success is largely due to the increase in popularity of organic products, which EOS specializes in.
