Finding a truly organic skincare line that has natural ingredients that not only are good for your skin but for the environment was a daunting task, until Green Goo. Green Goo believes in bringing the purest most natural ingredients from the farm to the “pharmacy,” sourcing sustainable herbs and oils for their product line. Organic could not get any better because Green Goo is 100% made in the USA from a woman-owned, family operated business.
Sierra Sage / Green Goo is rethinking first aid and body care by creating 100% all natural first aid and skin care products that contain none of the bad stuff of other products. There is no aluminum, no propanediol, no propylene glycol and no artificial ingredients. Their products are made in the USA with 100% all natural herbs and oils.
Green Goo has lines for First Aid, Fur & Feathers (animal first aid), Mama & Baby, Pit Goo all-natural deodorant, Sunblock, Tattoo Care, Southern Butter Intimates and Skin Care that includes lip balms, face wash and hand salve.
There are 6 different travel packs, all perfect for traveling. Each one meets airline regulations for flying. They are also the perfect way to sample the products. Each travel pack retails for $24.95 US.
The travel/gift pack contains Green Goo’s most popular products. Included are both lip balms (Citrus Zest and Cool Mint) and a 1 oz. tin of each popular salve (Repair Aloe-E, Dry Skin Care, and First Aid). They are nicely packaged in a reusable pack that is perfect for traveling (and of course sampling).
The First Aid, Skin Repair and Dry Skin salves have a yellowish/greenish appearance but when applied to the skin it is clear. A very little will go a long way!! They will appear to be really greasy at first but after rubbing onto the skin that greasy feeling will go away. I found it took a little bit to rub it into the skin.
To me, the salves had a somewhat of a Vaseline texture and feel to them. Personally, I have never been a huge fan of Vaseline simply for the fact that it’s too greasy for me. That is my personal preference but I know many of my friends who just love it.
Greasy feelings aside, the salves do alleviate skin irritations and the affects of dry, cracked skin.
The First Aid is an all-purpose first aid salve and helps relieve the symptoms associate with such things as insect bites, cuts, scrapes, cracked hands, poison ivy, cold sores, sunburns, chapped lips, blisters, fungal infections and chafing.
The First Aid can replace over 25 items in your home First Aid kit such as Neosporin, Hydrocortisone, Calamine lotion and any anti-itch and anti-fungal product. It is safe to use on your children and your pets (including, but not limited to, dogs, cats, birds and horses). It is versatile, can be used as a first aid dressing and is 100% all natural.

The Nourishing Lip Balm in Cool Mint and Citrus Zest help nourish and protect dry lips all year long. They are 100% natural and help promote healing.
I like mint lip balms. They have always been a favourite of mine. This was the best mint lip balm I have used to date. In about 30 seconds (or actually less) you will feel your lips getting cool. When you breathe in, you will feeling the air rush over your lips adding an extra cooling effect. It’s almost like having Vick’s for your lips but without the greasy residue. You know that the lip balm is working. While it does have a strong mint scent you won’t taste it if you happen to lick your lips. This is one lip balm that you will not have to keep applying either. It seems to coat your lips and remain even after you lick them. You know it’s there. It soaks into the skin on your lips so it lasts a long time.
I have never been a fan of citrus scented lip balms. This citrus zest scent is pleasant and not overbearing. I used it to test to review. It’s nice but not one that I would personally use so I gave it to the hubby. He tends to lean more towards cherry scented or some other fruity infused lip balms so I know he would have loved this one. Unlike the cool mint, the citrus scented lip balm doesn’t have that feeling of coolness to the lips and seems a little more “greasy” than the cool mint. It didn’t seem to soak into my lips as well as the cool mint.
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E, Calendula, Beeswax and Essential Oils.
