The original line of hemp infused lip balms by Cannasmack, all contain the ingredient beeswax. “Beeswax is a natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-oxidant which helps provide a “healing barrier” between chapped lips and the harsh elements. Because of its ability to lock in moisture it helps hydrate and heal lips.”
Reassuringly, “We love our bee friends and have asked many questions to our suppliers to ensure that our beeswax is responsibly sourced and that bees are not intentionally harmed.” Though Cannasmack sources their beeswax ethically, many fan’s of Cannasmack abide by strict vegan practices. “Shortly after releasing our lip balms we began receiving requests for a vegan version” as CannaSmack gained more popularity, the requests kept flooding in. “We listened and understand that it is important. We want to make sure CannaSmack is all inclusive; creating a vegan lip balm makes sense especially since we are a cruelty free brand.”
The Cannasmack team works hard to make sure every batch is ultimate perfection; which takes time especially when eliminating one of your products main base ingredients. “Our vegan formula has been in the works for nearly a year. I’ve tried about 8 variations but I know our Chemist goes through several variations before he sends Suzanne and I something for testing.”
Though this first vegan formula is magnificent beyond belief, it’s worth mentioning the texture variation that customers will experience, in comparison to the original line. “Plant base waxes are very hard to work with. The melting point and solubility for plant base waxes combined with other ingredients doesn’t always play well. There is a natural “graininess” that occurs and we wanted to make sure that we still captured the light silky feel of our original formula. Of course, it is not identical, but we finally feel like it is a “CannaSmack” product.”
If the name “Plain Mary Jane” didn’t give it away, this vegan formula is non-scented/flavored. This blank slate got you dreaming up the possibilities? Reach out to @Cannasmack on Instagram and tell them what vegan flavor you’d like to see them come out with, one day.
Standing by their original formula with pride Cannsmack reminds its customers that their favorite formulas aren’t disappearing from the lineup. “While we are not discontinuing our original lip balms we are trying to use vegan formulations whenever possible.”
