Top Vegetarian Lip Balms in India – Keeping your lips healthy and plump is easy when you get hold of perfect vegetarian lip balm for you. Despite being inundated with lip balms of varied shapes, sizes, colors and flavors these days, if you are at the sea as to which lip balm to eventually opt for, you have landed at the right spot. Recent years have stood testimony to the introduction and sprawl of a handful of Indian brands that thrive more on what they add and not on how to market it. While some of you may have heard of them in passing, most of us haven’t. But if you wish to know if there exist lip balms that not only are chemical-free but also cent per cent vegetarian, scroll down and check out these Top Vegetarian Lip Balms in India.
Top Vegetarian Lip Balms in India
Bio Organic and Natural
“BON for everyone,” the Auroville-based BON Organics’ aim is crystal clear- to provide quality organic product to everyone at a reasonable price. “That’s how it’s meant to be,” says its friendly CEO- Ms. Nishantainidevi Chandrasekaran. Proudly a USDA certified organic brand, their products’ range encompasses shampoos (my favorite), conditioners, gels, cold-processed soaps and eatables like- palm sugar & chocolate, my fixation with the brand is fuelled by its 100% handmade all natural & organic Lip Staining Balm- the Red Lip Stain. Its a 100% vegetarian lip balm that stains your lips in a sultry red hue with a mesmeric matte finish for a considerable time period- 8 hours in my case. Incredulous, isn’t it?
Made up of Shea Butter (Vitellariaparadoxa), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), BON Pure Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Sweet Almond Oil (Prunusdulcis), Cruelty Free Bees- wax (Certified), Essential Oil of Vanilla blended with Essential Oils, peppered lovingly with saffron, the composition is bound to sweep you off your feet. Everything about this lip stain is not only likeable but addictive.
A staying power over 8 hours (stays overnight as is the case with me), it imparts a gorgeous bright tint which by the time 8 hours come to a close lightens but still looks appealing. The moisturisation ability is creditable too. While it may take time to heal chapped lips particularly of those who are addicted to lip sticks, if you have normal/slightly dry lips, 2-3 applications elicit well-hydrated lips. In all, if you haven’t stained your lips with BON’s lip stains yet, you my friend have been depriving them off oodles of goodness & gorgeousness!
Price of BON Organics Lip Staining Balm- the Red Lip Stain : Rs.400/- for 8 g/0.3 fl. Oz.

Organic & Flirty lip care-so goes their tagline. For conscious consumers who emphasise the composition of a product, Goa-based Island Kiss is a delight. Their chemical free and 100% vegetarian lip balms are currently available in five tempting variants. Pampering your pucker with three bewitching flavors last summer, the new launches this year namely- The Black Rose & Grenade Rouge as well as the Flamingo Pink & Peonies Lip Moisturiser truly, aptly and rightfully justify the time taken to launch them.
With a noteworthy vegetarian composition, the Flamingo Pink & Peonies Lip Moisturiser brings an element of coquettishness to your appearance courtesy its perky light pink hue and sweet aroma. A subtle sheen imparted, it is neither greasy nor oily despite the presence of butters and oils in abundance. An actual raspberry-like stain (you can use on your cheeks too) that is 100% edible, it has no lead & chemicals. You can lick it (it’s edible) but I’d suggest pampering your luscious lips with it unless hunger pangs are driving you nuts! Unleash your feminine hue with it. Lip sticks do not stand a chance in front of it.At any cost.
Price of Island Kiss Flamingo Pink & Peonies Lip Moisturiser : Rs.499/-

Hydra by Ambika
There efficacy of Hydra’s products is best manifested by the fact that all the customers of this all-natural, cruelty-free and vegetarian brand sing paeans in its admiration. Be it its chemical-free face cream or a luscious body wash, its soothing lip balm or a lavish body butter, its owner/founder Ms. Ambika Goel ensures that if something is offered from Hydra- her brand, it is nothing short of spectacular. From the packaging to the performance, each aspect is looked into conscientiously by Ambika who suggests products based on one’s skin type, condition, problems, etc. Ergo, if you are baffled, wondering which product would be your savior all you need to do is drop a line to her.
Talking about their vegetarian lip balm, the product that caught my fancy was Hydra’s Organic Lip Balm. It is made up of cocoa butter, almond oil, olive oil, lavender essential oil & jojoba oil. Nothing more than these go into the tub of this product. With a staying power of 4+ hours, this tint-less lip balm leaves chapped lips intensely moisturized by the end of 4 hours. Severely chapped lips may take a fortnight to heal majorly but they will heal. If daubed heavily, it lasts throughout the night easily. A simple no-nonsense vegetarian balm, grab one to heal your inanimate lips.

Quirky name? I concur. Far more quirky are the entrepreneurs who helm the Bengaluru-based Cucumber Organics. Run by the amiable Priya & Zaheer who have a whale of their time answering all queries pertaining to their alluring products as well as general skin care queries as much as you may like throwing them, while keeping monotonous language out of their tête-à-tête with you. Touching base with them is akin to talking to old pal post a significant number of years!
All of their products are not only free from noxious chemicals but also vegetarian in composition. Talking about vegetarian lip balm, the one that caught my fancy was the Orange Lip Balm for the simple reason that it does what it is meant to- hydrate. Intensely. The staying power being 2-3 hours, it has a smooth texture which when applied doesn’t feel greasy. Making no bones about the composition of any of their products (the range is slowly but surely increasing) which is indeed creditable, the lip balm is not only for women but also for men to indulge in. If you were whether the price paid is justified, the answer is in affirmation.
Price of Cucumber Organics Orange Lip Balm : Rs.129/- for 5 g

Mrs. Roopa Honnaswamy’s Bengaluru-based Nature’s Emporium cannot be turned a blind eye at all while enlisting the most drool-worthy vegetarian lip balms in India. The brand offers lip butters in four variants at present namely in mojito, mandarin, lavender and grapefruit lip balm. All of which are free from deleterious chemicals and also cent per cent vegetarian in composition. Priced equally, the variant that has to be credited is the Lavender Lip Balm.
The clean, floral and earthy scent of Lavender essential oil is what makes it extra soothing. Lavender is a great scent for relaxing the senses. Made up of Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, and Lavender Essential Oil, each ingredient lends its bounties (and no side effects) to your lips, healing dry and chapped lips to the core. The only flea in the ointment happens to be the transitory nature of the balm that is, it stays for a short time period on one’s lips. If this aspect is ameliorated, this would make for a value-for-money product.
Price of Nature’s Emporium Lavender Lip Balm : Rs.160/-
Availability : Shopclues, Snapdeal, Engrave.in, Qtrove.com, Giskaa.com, Organicshop.in, Kraftly.com to name a few. If in Bangalore, Nature’s Emporium is available on the shelves at The Greenpath organic state in Malleswaram

Coming to their vegetarian lip balms, what deserves a special shout-out is the Special Edition Spiced Pumpkin Latte Lip Butter. The lip balms are made up of USDA Certified organic ingredients, unrefined butters, pure essential oils with the option of substitution of Beeswax with Candelilla Wax for vegans (at no extra cost).

Dr. Mohit Bhatia’s eclectic brand- Fuschia based out of New Delhi cannot be turned a blind eye to. Handmade, natural and chemical-free products being the brand’s USP, they offer chemical free and totally vegetarian lip balms. With their lip balms presently available in a number of flavors namely- choco, alphonso mango, cherry, pomegranate, peach plus, etc. what caught my eye were two variants which infused not only oodles of moisturization but also subtle delightful tints.
The Cherry Lip Balm in particular brings together the bounties of Shea Butter & Kokum Butter combined with Vitamin E. Free from Parabens, Petroleum Base, Artificial Tints and Synthetic perfumes, it is not only cruelty-free but also vegetarian in composition. Shea butter, natural beeswax, vitamins and natural oils protect and nourish lips, leaving them kissable soft.
The other variant is the Choco Butter Lip Balm that boasts of a similar composition but vastly different in terms of the fragrance elicited. For all the chocolate fanatics out there, smearing this on your lips may compel you to lick with each passing second but if you resist the urge to do so, you may end up with tangibly moisturised lips.
Price of Fuschia Cherry Lip Balm : Rs.225/-
