Spring Is Here, Smell the (Raining) Roses

26 Apr

This is a guest post by John Simonetta, owner of an eco-friendly promotional items consultancy (see proformagreen.com). John’s blogs are designed to keep us up to date on the “greening” of his industry.

The Raining Rose line of 66% organic lip balms, shimmers and glosses, made from materials like soy and extra virgin olive oil, are quickly becoming the default lip care items for the promotional products industry. In addition their USDA organic certified lip balm is setting a new industry standard. As always these are great products for any Ecopreneurist looking for a different spin on giveaway items.

So spring is here –  or at least on the way – and that means Raining Rose is introducing a few more flavors to their lineup as well as some wrap templates.

New wraps include a Fireworks #5 (think 4th of July), Tropical #3, the adorable Bunny Label 2009 (think Easter, but also animal friendly petting zoos) and Balloons #10. As always there is no additional charge to use a graphic backdrop, and graphic backdrops can be used on any product.

New flavors included in the Colorful Lip Balm line –  these are printed with a clear label so that clients can see the color of the lip balm itself – include Mango, Starfruit Lychee, Acai Berry, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Pineapple. Not your traditional promotional item lip balm flavors, right? When they also carry the old standards like Cherry, Fruit Punch and Mint.

All Colorful Lip Balms come in a clear tube with a clear cap. The overall product size is 0.15 ounces with an imprint area of 1.4″ x 1.7″. EQP on these items is as low as $1.00 per unit and Raining Rose is running a number of Spring time specials.

Raining Rose is always striving to deliver the highest quality lip balm in the industry, and I think for the price they deliver one of the most memorable items available. Ecopreneurists working in the event, tourism, and life-style/spa industries take note.

From their website comes this back story, “the company’s original owners refined the products, creating pure, and often vegan formulas, of the highest quality ingredients. [Since] January of 2003 [Raining Rose] has focused their efforts on delivering quality products to their customer on time, incorporating the tried-and-true family recipes with luscious new creations.” They also point out that their facility is FDA audited to insure the highest level of safety.

The one flaw in an otherwise stellar product is their packaging. Currently Raining Rose is using standard plastic for their containers, although their soy candles do come in tin and glass containers.
