Fresh Superfood Ingredients
The power of three
We use mango, shea, and, of course, deliciously scented cocoa butter to create a recipe for lip youth and rejuvenation. All three of these butters are rich in antioxidants and fatty acids! It makes them ideal for nourishing your skin and allowing it to preserve its natural moisture levels. Armed with vitamins A, E, C, and F, these skin-superfoods encourage collagen production, repair damage, and improve elasticity of your skin!
'Bee' a glow-getter
We use beeswax in most of our products and here’s why. It is an anti-allergenic, toxin-free, natural, golden honey-scented magic! It forms a protective barrier on your lips – to keep moisture in and bacteria out! When you apply TiliaLime lip balm, the beeswax helps attract the water molecules in the air around you, keeping your lips deliciously hydrated. And since it’s full of vitamin A, beeswax rejuvenates your skin and makes it glow! We also use Candelilla wax as an equally potent, but 100% plant-based alternative in ‘Enchanted Solitude’, ‘Harmony’, and ‘Free Spirit’
Apricot oil is highly emollient, but light, and is safe to apply anywhere on the body! It easily absorbs and penetrates deep into your skin to moisturize and soothe any irritation. Once applied, apricot oil provides nutrition and support, reducing the aging process and preventing damage from free radicals. The best part? It will leave you feeling silky-soft but no one will guess the secret to your natural glow!
Castor oil is highly emollient and is responsible for the glossiness of all TiliaLime products. But it actually does so much more – like protecting your lips against fungal infections! It stays put when applied and penetrates deep into the skin tissue, nourishing it with fatty acids. It is safe to apply directly onto the skin as it is entirely toxin free! A little goes a long way but is enough to act as a very strong anti-fungal and bacteria fighter.
It’s thick, glossy and smells like heaven, mmm! Skin’s best friend – coconut oil helps skin retain its moisture naturally, eliminating loss through the pores. It contains fats & proteins that contribute to cellular health and tissue repair. Above all, it prevents premature aging thanks to all the antioxidants it contains! Soft and creamy to the touch, though non-greasy, it can be applied directly to the skin as natural remedy to dryness and cracking.
Jojoba is actually a liquid wax pressed from the bean of the jojoba shrub. Its structure closely resembles our skin’s natural sebum, so your skin feels especially replenished when you apply it! Jojoba is naturally antibiotic, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and is rich in iodine, omega 6 and 9, and vitamins A, D, and E. And it can fight fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen production and even cleanse your skin! That is why this magic potion of an oil is present in all TiliaLime formulations.
Olive & Safflower oil
Olive and Safflower oils use date back to Ancient Egypt. Both oils are highly oleic – meaning they boost the elasticity of your skin, helping it feel supple and giving it a youthful appearance. They contain vitamins A and E that get to work deep under the surface of your skin, repairing sun damage, unclogging pores, and regenerating cell growth. All that’s left is youthful, healthy, glowing skin!
Sunflower & Sweet Almond Oil
Sunflower & Sweet almond oils are smoothing, mild, and hypoallergenic. They’re safe to use all over your body and even eat! These oils regenerate skin tissue and help fight inflammation in your entire body. The high lipid content of these oils strengthens the function of your skin as a barrier, without clogging pores or leaving you greasy. Try applying one of them after a shower to add natural glow to your skin and stay silky soft all day!
The goodness of plants
For a floral infusion, we use lavender and neroli essential oils. Experience them in our 'Confidence’ massage bar! Both oils are valued for their ability to soothe the spirit, filling you with harmony and happiness. Easily absorbed into the skin, the refreshing aroma of lavender oil removes mental exhaustion and dissolves stress. It is helpful for treating migraines, but it can also alleviate joint pain when massaged into the skin. Neroli oil kills bacteria and keeps toxins away from your body. It helps you breathe by clearing your airways, and keeps your body warm and protected during cold winters. If all that wasn’t enough, neroli oil noticeably reduces the appearance of scars and other marks. But best of all, together these two oils smell absolutely heavenly!
These bitter-sweet oils rejuvenate your spirit, promote good sleep, and leave your skin supple and healthy. Just like the fruits, citrus oils are full of vitamin C and antioxidants. Uplifting grapefruit and lemon essential oils act as a tonic for your skin and your emotions, relieving sluggishness by relaxing the mind and inducing positive feelings of hope. Lime oil, found in 'Enchanted Solitude' has a sweet aroma that encourages creativity and boosts your immune system. And bergamot essential oil in our 'Euphoria' butter & scrub, fights headaches and reduces pain, filling you with creative flow and happiness! We use only distilled and cold pressed citrus oils, because that method of extraction makes the oils safe to wear in the sun – in other words they do not cause photo-sensitivity. But, as none of TiliaLime products contain sun-blocking ingredients, we advise you to wear sunscreen if you are sensitive to the sun or live in hot climates. You can always enjoy any TiliaLime product on top for a delicious treat!
Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to man and has been valued since Ancient Egyptian times. Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil is light, non-toxic and acts as a natural disinfectant. It works as a wonderful pick-me-up during a busy day, providing a soothing and long-lasting relief with is warm, musky scent. Clove oil is bold & lessens the effects of aging by rejuvenating the skin. It stimulates blood flow to the skin that has been under stress and purifies it. And, being a natural aphrodisiac, makes it ideal for fighting stress and putting you in the mood to have some fun! Experience the sweet magic of these oils in our ‘Gumption’ lip butter.
Down to earth

All four are extremely effective at helping you breathe clearer so you can focus on the important things – loving yourself and following your dreams! These oils are heal wounds like magic, relax your blood vessels and create a cooling sensation on your skin. Rosemary was actually considered sacred in the ancient times and was often used to improve memory and relieve muscle aches. It also possesses intense antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cancer fighting properties. So go ahead, indulge in the woodsy aroma of these oils!
