Protect and soften lips at the same time with this 100% natural lip balm with SPF30 sunscreen. It's vegan friendly, free from toxins and comes in recyclable packaging, so ticks a lot of eco boxes. 8.5g.

Why we love it

  • Leaves lips feeling soothed, moisturised and protected
  • 100% natural plant based ingredients - no harmful chemicals on sensitive lips
  • Comes in a plastic free, push-up tube applicator that can be composted or recycled after use
  • Deveoped and handmade in Cornwall by a small independent business

    The balm is formulated from mango butter and organic coconut oil to soothe and smooth, and a natural zinc suspension in added to ensure even lip application and broad spectrum protection, keeping lips safe from harmful UVA and UVB exposure.

    To release the balm, push the base firmly into the tube lid. Warm it on your lips for 2-3 seconds to melt, then glide to apply.

    Tube measures approximately 5cm high x 2cm diameter. 8.5g.

    Hand made in Cornwall from ethically sourced, natural and organic ingredients. Packaged in recyclable and fully compostable cardboard tube. With use, the card tube may darken with the natural oils of the balm, developing a deeper patina. This is normal and doesn’t affect the quality of the balm.

    Palm oil free and suitable for vegans.

    Store in a cool, dry place. This natural balm will soften in warm temperatures above 30 degrees but will become firm again when cooled.

    Use within 24 months of purchase.

    Founder Krista Taylor moved to Cornwall as a teenager to study at Falmouth School of Arts. She had a career in fine art and design, before retraining in complementary therapies. Since qualifying in anatomy and physiology, aromatherapy and massage therapies, Krista has been researching, formulating and perfecting the Scence range along with her sister Mel; developing handmade skincare products at their lab in in Penryn, a mile west of Falmouth. The eco-friendly lab is located in Waterside House at the head of Penryn River, a beautiful environment where they are literally a few paces from the water - they also generate their own power using solar panels on the roof!

    The sisters have always been interested in natural oils and the efficacy of herbs, and felt frustrated that so much of the natural skincare on offer was packaged in single use plastic containers and applicators. They knew we were not alone in feeling this conflict and felt strongly that the way forward was to develop new ways of packaging the brand, without compromising the environment.

    After making balms for family and friends that needed help with eczema and sensitive skin, they were particularly interested in addressing specific needs, as well as developing a really effective deodorant that didn’t use questionable ingredients like aluminium.

    The result is Scence skincare – beautiful, nourishing, natural and vegan ingredients, all poured into our paper-based, compostable and recyclable packaging.

    Mango butter, organic coconut oil, zinc oxide, cococaprylate/caprate, polyglyceryl-3 polyricinoleate (natural emulsifier), isostearic acid (natural emulsifier), sunflower seed wax, organic fruit flavour oils.

    BRAND STORY

    SCENCE SKINCARE

    Growing up, founders (and sisters!) Krista & Mel were always interested in sustainable living and the power of essential oils and herbs. Frustrated they couldn’t find good quality, natural skincare that wasn’t packaged in single-use plastic, they decided to train together in Anatomy & Physiology, Aromatherapy & Massage so they could understand more about other options available.⁠

    INSPIRED BY THE ENVIRONMENT

    After making balms for family and friends that needed help with eczema and sensitive skin, and an effective deodorant that didn’t use questionable ingredients like aluminium, Krista & Mel decided it was time to get out there and share everything they had learned and created. The result is Scence Skincare – beautiful, nourishing, natural and vegan ingredients, all poured into paper-based, compostable and recyclable packaging.

    Sustainable production

    Scence use only the highest quality, natural and organic ingredients that are both nourishing for skin and kind on the environment. The eco-friendly lab is located in Waterside House at the head of Penryn River (a mile west of Falmouth), a beautiful environment where they are literally a few paces from the water - they also generate their own power using solar panels on the roof!
