Every lip balm improves the health and opportunity for children across the globe.
With every 1,000 lip balms sold, one child receives the gift of a cleft lip or cleft palate surgery in the same countries we source our ingredients.
READ THEIR STORIES
“Born with a severe cleft lip and palate, my daughter Cala was unable to eat and talk. After three surgeries, Cala is now able to eat and talk just like any child. I am so happy she can be a normal little girl now. She loves to sing and dance. My hopes for my daughter are enormous. I want to say thank you to everyone who has given Cala the opportunity for a healthy and promising future.”
Smile Train Surgeon
Dr. Carlos Navarro of Lima, Peru travels to remote and impoverished areas in Peru to provide free cleft surgeries. He and his team have performed over 6,000 surgeries and follow-up care to children.
“It gives me, my wife Elvira, and the rest of my surgical team great pleasure to perform cleft surgeries for these underprivileged children, especially to be able to witness the incredible transformation and health improvements achieved in these children and the relief and joy it brings to their families.”
1 in 600-700 children are born with cleft lip and or/cleft palate birth defects.

Without surgery, children cannot eat or speak properly. Many are socially stigmatized and are deprived of an education.
A life transforming cleft surgery gives every child improved health, hope, and opportunity.
We’ve partnered with Smile Train, the world’s largest international children’s cleft charity with a sustainable approach to a single solvable problem: cleft lip and palate birth defects. Through our partnership, together we have the power to help more children smile for the first time.
