15 Best Herbal, Natural and Organic Lip Balms in India


Top 15 Natural, Organic and Herbal Lip Balms in India with Reviews and Prices

While a lot of us have inhibitions about organic and natural beauty products, yet they can be allayed if we acknowledge the fact that organic products need a certification. “But there are hardly any organic lip balms in India and most of them cost an arm and a leg” would be your counter-point. W-A-I-T, there are and most of these lip moisturisers won’t even pinch your pockets! Want to know? Go through the list of 15 best natural and herbal brands below and thank me for awakening the shopaholic in you for products that cater to your dry flaky lips!

While a lot of us tuck away hordes of lip balms in our cupboards, bags, etc. yet do we realise that they aren’t supposed to be stored that way? Firstly, lip creams come laced with an alarming number of noxious chemicals. Secondly, what we put on our lips, works its way all the way down to our stomach. In other words, we are ingesting chemicals. So, what’s the solution? Like always, go organic because doing so means embracing a shorter shelf life of lip butters which are packed with nourishing natural ingredients.

List of Must Have Natural and Herbal Lip Balms:


What are cafes for? Socializing, clicking selfies, having a whale of a time and unwinding while throwing caution to the wind. So, why not have a skin café too? That’s what SkinCafe, a Mumbai and Pune based organic lip-care venture does. It treats your lips to wholesome, luxurious and drool-worthy natural lip tints, balms and scrubs. Cruelty-free, vegan, natural, organic, opting for fresh and premium quality ingredients… you name it and they have it as a part of their menu to pamper you.

All their products have natural and organic origins and are composed of pure and unrefined butters (like Shea, cocoa, mango and Kokum), pure USDA organic certified essential oils and skin-friendly herbal infusions. Also, you can get creative and ask them to custom-make FRESH organic lip products for you. While they offer both tinted and non-tinted balms, yet I find 3 tinted balms that are my sinful indulgences. They are-

1. SkinCafé Berry Cheesecake Lip Tint-

Want to unleash that sensual sultry mistress in you? Give it a shot without any thought. Perfect for warm Indian skin tones.

2. SkinCafé Mint chocolate brownie lip tint-

Don’t lick it, first of all. Exhibit self-control. It leaves behind a delectable light brown tinge with oodles of coolness. Perfect for warm Indian skin shade.

3. SkinCafé Strawberry Shortcake Lip Tint Balm-

No one needs a reason to grab a strawberry lip balm that too, if it comes from Skin Cafe. Perfect for all skin shades.

PRICE- 900/- INR each

Standing for comfort in Sanskrit, Ida Naturals pampers one with hand-crafted bath and body treats. Based out of Bangaluru, it is helmed by Priya Iyer. Their eclectic range runs into cold-pressed soaps, body butters, lip butters, bath salts, hand creams and a lot more.

A heady blend of chocolate with the cooling sensation of mint, this balm sends your lips and olfactory senses into a tizzy. It soothes chapped lips naturally within a week.

Spearheaded by the noble Mrs. Sithara Gerdes, it is owned by Anthara Crafts and works for the betterment of rural women. A sense of complacency arouses when one supports this herbal brand which takes its social responsibility the way most brands in India today, don’t.

The Mango Lip Butter by La Flora Organics deserves special mention. Smearing it on your lips is akin to daubing raw mango pulp on your lips. Picture Katrina Kaif from the Slice advert! Warning- It may seem similar to gliding mango pulp on your lips but do not let the foodie in you take the better of you. Let’s not even get started about the aroma of the lip balm. It is simply put- unparalleled and of course, not synthetic.

PRICE- 225/- INR

Based out of Dilwaon ki Dilli, Greenviv lives by the mantra of ‘Less is more’. Do not be appalled if you see only 5-6 ingredients in each of their products. The list of natural ingredients is complete and nowhere misleading. Their eclectic range of products encompasses sulphate-free washes, shampoos, cold-processed soaps and gels. Indulge whole-heartedly in them, ladies.

I would recommend Greenviv’s  Strawberry & Beetroot Natural Lip Balm as it imparts a comely pink-meets-maroon tint with long-lasting hydration without burning a hole in your pocket. Doesn’t it tick all the boxes of an immaculate lip balm?

Pro Tip- Scrub your lips with Greenviv’s Chocolate lip scrub and then, glide their Strawberry & Beetroot lip balm. The end result will have you waxing lyrical of this novel brand.

Since the lip balm is clear and not tinted, Indian men out there can give it a shot uninhibitedly. This one is certainly for both the men and women out there. Splurge whole-heartedly.

Based out of New Delhi and helmed by Arti Gaur, Quinta Essentia Organics turns you into an addict. Once you get hold of their luxurious lip conditioners, chances are high that you’d discard all your chemical-laden lip balms to the trash point-blank. Deeply moisturising butters infused with therapeutic essential oils, they make no bones about their lip balms’ ingredients and composition. Not only that they spoil you with their range of luxurious butters, cold-pressed soaps, sun veil, serums and much more… I see the conscious shopaholic in you awaken.

I’d recommend Quinta Essentia Rose Butter. Why? With zero greasiness, oodles of long-lasting hydration, a riveting aroma of roses and nourishment going on to your lips sans burning a hole in your pocket, this one’s a winner all the way.

One week and your lips are healed no matter how chapped they are- mark my words. And their herbal lip balms are available in a number of mouth-watering flavours- strawberry, vanilla, orange, rose and lemon… It’s going to be tough for you to zero in on one for they all are tempting.

It makes for an ideal base for lipsticks leaving you with a pucker that does not hold you back from pouting!

Furnishing what all is added and what all isn’t in each of their products, their skin care range compels you to sit back and take notice.

‘We Care’ is their tagline and going by how their all-natural lip balms fare for one, we cannot help but be in consonance with them. A Delhi-based brand, helmed by Dr. Mohit Bhatia, Fuschia needs no introduction. Their lip balms are free of parabens, synthetic scents, colorants and petroleum. With a diverse range spanning bath salts, face creams, moisturizers, cold-pressed soaps and many more to list, you cannot turn a blind eye to this 100% vegan, GMP certified and eco-friendly Indian beauty brand.

I’d recommend Fuschia Pomegranate Lip Balm as it leaves behind a subtle tint while soothing dry patches on lips effectively. To those who aren’t fond of going bright with their lips but not completely tint-less either, Fuschia’s lip balms range is a breath of fresh air.

Be it cold-pressed soaps in a multitude of colours or sunscreens with SPF 50 (beat that!), Amara Organix may be a new kid on the block but is going all guns blazing in their approach, ethicality and customer-servicing.

Confession of the day- My first brush with lip balms happened I was in Class 8th (I was a late-bloomer). A friend of mine pulled out an eerie pink tube slyly from her pocket, swiped it frantically on her lips (school rules, after all) and tucked it away in her pocket with her eyes roving all over to allay potential danger (read: teachers) Eight years down the line and I indulge in chapsticks whole-heartedly. So which ones have you tried so far? And which ones roused the lip-balm addict in you? Let it out in the comments section.

    • Thanks, Jesse. I don’t know what Madhurima does with those ChapSticks but besides the aroma, I am a fan of the texture. They glide so effortlessly on one’s lips that I keep on swiping it for fun many a time 😅

    • Just Herbs is quite expensive for what it does, Dipika. “Most” of the balms mentioned here are not only effective but also reasonably priced so, keeping that in mind, there’s nothinf extraordinary about Just Herbs. Moreover, if the percentages are added in what’s furnished in its ingredients’ list, it doesn’t even come out to be 100.

      So, that means that Just Herbs isn’t cent per cent transparent about the composition of its lip balm. The ones mentioned here are 😊
