A Super Balm at the Super Bowl!

Thanks to all the ChopSaver fans we met during Super Bowl Week. Indianapolis transformed itself into a combination football/entertainment/music hotbed, a 10-day party like we’ve never seen around here! ChopSaver was on full display in the heart of it all at Circle Centre Mall in downtown Indianapolis where we sampled nearly 5,000 lips and sold […]

ChopSaver – A Kitchen Concoction?

Yes, it’s true. The formula for ChopSaver all-natural lip balm was created in my kitchen and here are the pictures to prove it!

All-Natural Ingredients with a Purpose

OK, so by now you are getting the idea that ChopSaver is full of really good stuff. I could continue to write about each and every ingredient and why they are in there, but that would be a little bit like Coca-Cola giving away their formula, wouldn’t it? Or Kentucky Fried Chicken (oh – sorry! […]
