The role of lip balm in fighting bias

The role of lip balm in fighting bias.

Ok, this may not be obvious, but this is how it works.

We infuse each premium lip balm with an important additional ingredient…this one has curiosity. We hope each time you take care of your lips, you are reminded to also switch on your curiosity, an essential ingredient in un-doing the habit of unconscious bias.

In addition to its job keeping your lips hydrated and soft, 50% of profits go to organizations working to end discrimination.

Talk about multi-tasking!

New Lip Balm - Natural & Open

New Lip Balm – Natural & Open

Every time you take care of your lips, imagine a sense of openness in your brain. For a minute, can you forget all the labels and just be curious about a person…who are they beyond their skin? What are their dreams and demons? Start a conversation before a judgment creeps in. Look past the stereotypes and stay open to individuals.

Mind the Gap

There is a gap between how you see yourself as a person and how you behave in real life…AND it’s not your fault.

Can you find your bias blind spots? hint…there is more than one.
