An update on our move.......

Whew! This has been a huge undertaking and although everyone is nearly exhausted, the end is in sight. We spent all day Friday packing. Monday was spent packing and loading two tractor trailers. The trailers were moved Tuesday and unloaded. We managed to get a lot of the shelving put back together and some of the FO's stored. Today was spent packing and loading the two trailers, AGAIN. We still can't fit in everything, so Thursday morning we're moving and unpacking the two trailers and going back for one last trip of maybe 1/2 to 3/4 load on one trailer. Then we're ready to begin unpacking everything and organizing. I'm hopeful that we'll resume shipping orders sometime between Monday and Weds. of next week.

Things have been so hectic that we've fallen woefully behind on photo taking. Sorry. We'll try to do better. The warehouse space is much nicer than the building we've occupied for the last 4.5 years. However, the office space looks a little tragic - it's vintage, and not in a good way. The office has some early 80's industrial linoleum on the floors and cheap wood paneling. But I believe we can live with it for now.

Here are a few photos from Friday's packing:

We're moving!



We will soon be moving to a different warehouse. The move is only 5 miles away, but we have a lot of work to do! We will be closed beginning at 3:00 pm (Eastern time) on Thursday, February 14. We will begin preparing for the move on Friday 2/15 and begin loading the trucks early Monday morning. We anticipate the move to take between 4-10 business days.

Online orders WILL STILL BE ACCEPTED during this time. However, the orders will not ship until we are in our new location. I cannot promise a date on which we will start shipping - it all depends upon how long it takes to move.

Our telephone/fax numbers will not change and neither will our emails. If you need to contact us, please feel free to call. However, I don't know how much we'll be able to help if the computers are not hooked up. We hope to make the move to the new warehouse as smoothly as possible, but there are too many unknowns until we start loading and unloading the trucks.

New products are now available

We've added some new products to the Lip Balm Tubes site.

A main ingredient in the majority of lip balm recipes is wax. We are proud to now offer all-natural waxes fit for lip balms, lipsticks, and even body butters, creams, lotions, lotion bars, hair pomades, soaps and candles. Our pure and natural waxes are petroleum free and all-natural. We offer 100% Soy Wax, Natural Yellow Beeswax, White Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax, and Natural Wax Jelly. We've also added our first Natural Lip Balm Base.

For the vegan conscious formulator we suggest our Soy Wax, Candelilla Wax and Carnauba Wax. These are not only vegan friendly, but all-natural and eco-friendly as well.

When you choose as your natural wax supplier, you're choosing ingredients that are sourced from the highest quality raw materials available. We want only the best for our customers.

We've also added a yummy flavor oil to the Lip Savors collection - Lemon Cheesecake.
