Good vegan chapsticks?

I have been searching for beeswax free vegan chapstick for the longest time, and cannot seem to find any around here! I was wondering if any of you guys had any favorites i could be on the lookout for. (I cant really buy things online, will be able to in a month or so though, when i get my bank account re-set up. But i horribly want to find some ASAP)
Thanks!!!

I like the Merry Hempsters lip balm.  They make some with and some without beeswax.

I suck at chapstick, though--everytime I buy a new one, I forget to take it out of my pocket and it ends up the wash and gets all gross.  Boo  :P  I've just been using straight Vitamin E at night and it works really well!

Merry Hempster is a really good one and there is another one that is called Tea something or another...I can't remember the full name, but I know I picked it up at Whole Foods. I think Alba and Kiss My Face might also have vegan versions too! And Jason brand maybe...There out there! I promise!!!

I do not like the merry hempsters (i like the name!)
i got some eco balm...its great. the MH always goes rancid on me. especially the orange flavor.

The lemon-lime MH is really nice and doesn't go rancid!

omg, I love the orange flavor! haha.

I've weaned myself off of chapstick though... so I haven't used it in awhile... might have to try it just to see..

Watch out for Alba! They advertise "100% vegetarian," (maybe even vegan?), are listed with Peta, etc.,  but I think all of them have beeswax. I even somehow missed it in the ingredients list when I purchased some a while ago. I just bought some Merry Hempsters online, and I've used it twice. It's fine...a little bit greasy, and my vanilla is definitely not vanilla-y...it has an earthy/green-y smell, which is perfectly fine, just not vanilla.

I think i'll search for peppermint merry hempsters. Mmm, mint.

Yes, go with the peppermint.  That one is my favorite!

there is another one that is called Tea something or another...

Desert Essence tea tree lip balm?  The last time I bought a tube in was in an opaque yellow tube.  (I use Desert Essence tea tree toothpaste.)

I HATE Merry Hempsters.  It's oily and slides off my lips and doesn't address chapping and goes rancid (pretty much what l2a wrote).  In fact, I've bought a slew of vegan lip balms over the years and, and though they excel in compassion, they are all substandard in performance.

l2a - Do you use the "bee free" Eco Balm?  That's the only one I see without beeswax, but the first two ingredients are oil so I'm not sure how oily it is.

ah!  Lip Rescue!  yea, that was one I liked too.  I had the green kind (forget what it was)
It smelled like tea tree oil as soon as I put it on, but it was also good!

Every single time i see this thread I think "Good vegan chopsticks?" and every single time I think "How could chopsticks not be vegan, when they're made of wood or plastic?" and then every single time I read it again and go ohhh. Chapsticks.

Honestly, you'd think I'd just skip to the end of that process by now instead of repeating the whole shebang every day.

I liked the Merry Hempster variety, but when they get old the wax gets really hard and smells stale. I got one from the PETA website (which might just be some brand relabeled or something)... the viva las vegans one i think (vanilla). It smells sooooo good and has stayed soft so far.

I like Tate’s Natural Miracle Conditioning Lip Balm.

When I can't find it locally or I'm in a third world country... I use olive oil, Vitamin E or Jojobo oil.

I just found Evolution of Smooth Lip Balm.. not vegan but.. a good thing is that it's not tested on animals -- but it does have organic beeswax which I just read about. They use natural and organic ingredients which is great. It is so soft on your lips and it looks so cute in it's round roll on ball. I found it at Rite Aid.
