Thelma Lip Treatment
Formulated to perfection, Thelma is a deeply penetrating and ultra-healing lip treatment that took 41 trail runs and a year to develop and test. With a fluffy balm texture, this vegan lip treatment radically heals and revitalizes the lip tissue – helping lips to look smooth, even-textured, and naturally firm – while absorbing fully and leaving lips healthy.
The mega-penetrating qualities of Thelma come from the South African mafura butter and from the Brazilian bacuri butter, both ingredients used by the indigenous cultures of each region as heal-alls for wounds, eczema, and dry, cracked skin. And with the addition of Brazil nut oil and mango kernel butter, this lip treatment offers a bounty of minerals and vitamins, as well as the enhancement of smoothness and elasticity of lip tissue. We added Brazil nut oil for its bounty of minerals and vitamins, and mango kernel butter to enhance smoothness and elasticity of the lip tissue.

Founded by herbalist, flower essence practitioner, and studying aromatherapist, Ava Zhan, Earthwise Beauty was built upon a lifetime love of skincare products and immersion in nutritional and herbal healing, homeopathy, and aromatherapy.
When she lived in New York City in her early 20s, she worked at a book publisher and would create products in the evenings with ingredients from the local health food store. Soon her coworkers were begging her to make products for them, and her nights were filled to the brim with crafting products. And, so, the spark for Earthwise Beauty was born.
Now with a deep focus on freshness, purity, quality, and luxury, and based in Spokane, Washington, Earthwise Beauty has evolved into a small-batch, organic skincare line based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients with a commitment to preserving the life force contained within the plants. And sourcing is paramount: Ava has close partnerships with organic gardeners, two beekeepers, and a small handful of essential oil and hydrosol suppliers and distillers (who are all dedicated to authenticity, purity, freshness, and organic and sustainability standards). Earthwise Beauty also stays focused on their pro-environment practices and fair trade commitment, and their passion for sustainability informs everything they do: from ingredient selection and product development to packaging and shipping materials. They also have set up an ongoing quarterly donation program to nonprofit organizations that not only spread the word about man-caused damage to the planet earth, its climate, and its fauna and flora, but that have the know-how to effect real changes.
