A short history of Suavina

Posted: May 19 2018


Made in Spain, Suavina lip balm has been made using the same ingredients and recipe for over 130 years. Made from 100% natural ingredients with essential oils, it was originally made for the chapped lips of local field workers who were out in the sun all day. 

The original maker of the lip balm was a pharmacist who had four sons, all of whom opened their own pharmacies in various areas increasing the popularity of the lip balm. Originally sold in a wooden box, a metal tin was introduced in the 1940s followed by the packaging we see today.

Ideal for use on chapped lips, cold sores and in the sun, wind and heat, you should never be without a pot!
