Taui Balms

Here’s what we’re all about

1. Keeping it simple

2. Being honest

3. Having fun 

Woman-owned, family operated

Taui Balms is what you might call a product-first company. We love balms -- they work great and they're safe. We have one now and we have some more coming.

The other thing we love is our independence. Now there are lots of little companies like us chasing their "Indie Beauty" dream of selling out to a big national brand. That's not us. We're gonna stick to the "indie" part.

We’re actual Portlanders (not just Brooklyn transplants!)

We make, pour and label every jar of taui ourselves in our facility in Portland, Oregon. Yeah, that sounds a little tedious, but we brew up a big pot of coffee (who are we kidding, we’re Portlanders, we only do pour over), turn on some podcasts and pitter patter.

Remember that Portlandia episode...

...with Colin the chicken? Well, meet Benjamin the Bee. Ben is posing for us on a small organic farm about halfway between Eugene and the Pacific Ocean. We get all our wax and other bee products from places just like this throughout Oregon’s Willamette Valley. While we don’t exactly know every single bee, we know every one of our beekeepers and their hive management practices to ensure we are getting the best, most sustainable bee products possible.

We don't test on animals (only babies!)

All our products are certified amazing by Oliver, the resident baby (whose bum is protected 24/7 by taui).

It’s our promise to never test on animals, and only buy ingredients that meet our sustainability and cruelty-free standards.

We’re pretty transparent for such a solid balm.

We believe in being honest about the ingredients in our product, and where we buy them. What’s in the balm is exactly what’s listed on the jar. Nothing more, nothing less.
