MaryKane!

Mary Kane grew up in New Mexico and is New Mexico TRUE to her core (uncertified). Years of studying and concocting resulted in all of this. She says:

The Sacred Desert, truly, was born from ChipChap- our natural unisexy lip balm. I have been making ChipChap since 2009; I started making it because I could only find natural products that did not make me feel beautiful (white, waxy lips are not a good look) or more conventional products that made me feel like a modern woman but were made of scary things (SCARY THINGS). So, like a mad-natural-scientist, I created ChipChap- I made it for me and it has become our debut example of what happens when you throw out old, basic recipes to suit basic needs and start from scratch; reinventing what people should expect from their essentials. The three things I would want with me if I were to find myself on a deserted isle are a water bottle, a knife and ChipChap (then clearly I could Girl Scout my way home).
