We all know that what we put into our mouths is imperative to keep us healthy, but did you realize that what you put on your mouth is super important too?! Not only does the skin on our lips absorb everything we put on them, a lot of the lip wear will be ingested too – so you better make sure it’s made of ingredients worth eating!

Noyah is a natural lip wear company that creates high-performance cosmetics. With lines of Lipstick, Lip Gloss and Lip Balm, all of their products are made with the finest of ingredients, and are cruelty-free, gluten-free and [almost] vegan – with exception of the ethically sourced beeswax that they contain.
Noyah also makes it a point to use ingredients that are [practically] edible and has even developed a completely Organic and Edible Lip Balm for babies that is actually made in a commercial kitchen! Many of their products also come in dazzling earth-friendly bamboo packaging so they benefit both your health and the planet.
Available in 10 shades of Lipstick, including colors like Desert Rose Pink and Deeply in Mauve, 10 shades of Lip Gloss including Latte Love and African Nights, and 6 flavors of Lip Balm, two of which are the Organic Edible ones I referred to above, literally everyone in your family can find a product that they don’t want their lips to live without!
Furthermore, none of Noyah products contain gluten or any of the major allergens (milk, wheat, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, fish, or shellfish). However they may be produced on equipment that produces other products that contain these allergens, so they cannot make any official claims that the finished product is free of them. That said, not only do they clean their equipment extremely well before use utilizing Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), some of their products are Kosher so they go through an extra round of cleaning as part of the process!
At Noyah, they believe that earthy can be glamorous, natural can be rebellious, and that classic and cutting edge are just opposite sides of the same coin. After all, who says you can't be a cosmopolitan do-gooder or hug a tree in a suit? So yeah, they love dualities and believe that looking good and being good are not mutually exclusive.
Indeed, noyah means "divine beauty," and in their hometown of NYC, divine beauty can mean equal parts Central Park and cosmopolitan chaos. And they celebrate this mash-up with eco-chic packaging filled with a range of colors to suit any look, whether you take your style cues from "the greatest city on earth" or the great outdoors – their quote ;)
Which brings me to their mission: making products that don’t exist, but should. This is why Noyah came up with an edible lip balm – because you end up eating pounds of lip products anyway, so why not have it made in a kitchen?!
Approximately 650,000 people in the U.S. are homeless on any given night. Things we take for granted on a daily basis go a very long way for someone without a roof over their head, and no bed to sleep in at night. Noyah is partnered with The National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC) to distribute free lip balm to homeless and low income people.
For every Noyah product you purchase and send a photo of, they donate one balm to NHCHC.
There are 3 ways you can donate:

Have you heard the statistic that woman eat an average of 7 lbs of lipstick in their lifetime?? 7 lbs!! That is disgusting! And what’s even worse is the ingredients that those lipsticks contain!
In fact, the University of California researchers tested eight lipsticks and 24 lip glosses and detected nine toxic heavy metals, including chromium, cadmium, manganese, aluminum and lead. Yes, lead! You know, that notorious metal that can cause learning, language and behavioral problems?! Even the FDA has done studies and found [in a 2010 study] lead in all 400 lipsticks tested, ranging from 0.9 to 3.06 ppm -- four times higher than the levels observed in the study done by Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
However, both the FDA and Cosmetics blow off such findings saying that “lipstick, as a product intended for topical use with limited absorption, is ingested only in very small quantities. We do not consider the lead levels we found in the lipsticks to be a safety concern." Likewise, the cosmetics industry also doesn't see this as an issue, saying that the “dose makes the poison” -- in other words, the trace amounts of heavy metals in lipsticks are not harmful. (Check out the full article, HERE).
Now I’ll admit that I’ve never been a girl that’s super into lipstick, but give me a good lip gloss and I’m all over it. Well, that was until I realized how harmful a lot of those products and ingredients can be – even when they come from the beauty counter at Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus!
That is why I have come to love Noyah – a completely transparent cosmetic company that makes your lip health – and beauty – it’s number one priority! They also go out of their way to help the homeless, which I think is super rad too!
With tons of beautiful colors to choose from, whether you are more of a lipstick girl or can’t go without your gloss, Noyah has something for you!
Oh, and I’ll admit that after trying several of Noyah’s lip colors, I may just end up being a lipstick girl after all! J
