Two Words - Naturally Fun!
That's what Crazy Rumors is all about! A lip treat unlike any other! The purest, cleanest ingredients found on earth fused with deliciously fun flavors!
So who is Crazy Rumors anyway?
Crazy Rumors is Edie and Brian Himmel - a fun loving, creative couple who took a leap of faith and decided to do what they truly love!
How it all started
Back in 2003 while living in Brooklyn, NY - they took a look around and what they didn't see really excited them! There were tons of lip balms out there, but they were all missing that one thing - that extra coolness factor that separated the ordinary from the extraordinary! There were two options: simple and plain, harboring the same basic flavors and scents, or wild and over the top but made of purely synthetic ingredients!
And off they go
Relentlessly seeking out the perfect lip balm recipe with no luck, they decided to create one on their own! Formulated from the ground up with one main goal: to create the best all natural & vegan lip balm-- dare they say-- in the world!
After months upon months of late night experiments and testing, they were pretty certain they had done it! Not only did their lips feel astonishing but their kitchen smelled amazing! In the famous words of Suze Orman APPROVED!
What they made
All Natural & Vegan, indulgently clean, out of this world flavored lip treats made with certified organic ingredients - like super moisturizing organic shea butter and soothing organic jojoba oil. Infused with only the best naturally derived flavors & pure essential oils, and slightly sweetened with just a hint of natural stevia, so their lip treats not only smell amazing, they taste great too!
Their gorgeous packaging, amazing flavors and to die for scents are truly a breath of fresh air! Your lips will feel soft and fabulous, and you will feel good about what you put onto your body!
They're living down South in Georgia with a huge household of 7! It's kinda funny, they're outnumbered by the cats! 2 lovely sisters, Emma & Sophie (now known as Sopha) as well as 2 boys, Bobby & Sonny - strays they took in along the way.
