Summon the spirit of the Green Fairy with this caring and protecting plant-based hand and lip balm.
This balm harnesses the unique power of Absinthe extract, referred to in historical literature as "la fée verte" (the green fairy) and derived from the leaves of wormwood, anise and fennel. This one-of-a-kind ingredient is combined with Caster oil, shea and cocoa butter for silky-smooth moisturising effect, candelilla wax for skin nourishment, and stevia for a gorgeously-sweet taste. It’s the perfect restorative fix for dry and irritated hands or lips, at home or on the go.
Absinthe Extract is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and also exhibits antioxidant properties
Aniseed is another powerful antioxidant, and also a natural insect repellent
Shea Butter is rich in Vitamin A & E, plus fatty acids and cinnamic acid - all of which provides your skin with essential moisture and could help protect against UV damage
Cocoa Butter is an emollient which provides protection and hydration to skin
Candelilla Wax is a vegan alternative to beeswax. It provides a long-lasting protective barrier on the skin
Lemon Peel and Grapefruit Essential oils all help to exfoliate dead skin cells and promote smoother and healthier skin
How To Use:
Apply a small dab of this balm to lips or hands for a caring and protecting boost of moisture. It can be used to soften your cuticles, or on the lips before you apply lipstick.
Why we love it
The use and applications of Absinthe over the years has been shrouded in mystery, but one thing that’s crystal clear to us is its effectiveness when combined with shea, cocoa butter and essential oils at providing long-lasting moisture to delicate hand and lip areas. It’s made from certified organic ingredients, 100% vegan and cruelty free, smells and tastes great, and comes in a beautifully designed tin!
We’re big fans of MOA and their unique set of products. Starting from its humble origins of a mother looking to treat her daughter’s eczema using simple organic ingredients, this brand has blossomed into a therapeutic selection of oils, balms and bath products, perfect for all skin types.
