Our Story

How it started

TiliaLime is the most natural and fun way to keep your lips happy and soft. Created in 2016 by a gal from Ontario, who was searching for fresh, raw and natural products to add to her own skincare ritual. After months of formulating and testing, she created a line of all natural – and edible – lip balm and scrub full of skin loving superfoods.

The first lip balm contained only three ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, and a drop of steam distilled lime oil. But today, our products are truly wild and raw, because each one is infused with real superfoods like goji, strawberry, dark cocoa, green tea and beautifying butters and oils.

Each TiliaLime product also features an affirmation that calls you back to your core and guides you to nature. And so, TiliaLime is your perfect pocket companion, whether you searching for your most authentic self, find yourself caught in a daydream or craving that dose of boldness in your life.

Purpose and Passion

We formulate with unique ingredients from all over our beautiful planet and provide you with clean, handcrafted skincare. At TiliaLime, we simply invite you to be you. Helping you embrace nature is what fuels our relentless passion to keep creating thoughtful products that love your skin.    

Our Mission

Our mission is two-fold: One, to formulate clean products with botanical ingredients that can take a therapeutic stance within your skincare ritual. Two, to help you find a connection to the outdoor world without and embrace your true nature.        

The Story Behind the Name 

Tilia tree - also referred to as a linden or lime tree - is a large tree with heart-shaped leafs and very fragrant flowers. It has a multitude of medicinal properties. The first lip balm we ever created was flavored with lime oil, and we named our brand after a lime tree and so it became TiliaLime.

You can still enjoy a refined version of that flavor in The Original lip balm or lip scrub. Like the flowers of the Tilia tree during their blooming season, this balm is mildly scented with honey and notes of citrus.
