The Many Flavors of EOS Lip Balms

When it comes to oral care products, lip balm are some of the most popular products on the market today. These unique little items can heal tired/sore lips as well as get rid of cold sores. The market is huge, but is also cluttered from the hundreds of companies and thousands of products. Luckily there is Evolution of Smooth and it can deliver on all promises. EOS lip balm today is the second best selling lip balm product with sales figures of 1 Million units sold per week. The products are very beneficial as they are full of antioxidants, vitamins, and jojoba oil. This is a winning combination all while being 95% organic.

One of this EOS lip balm‘s best features is that it has a wide array of flavors. These aren’t just any old boring flavors, but rather blended flavors. Being blended gives them a more unique taste as well as appearance thanks to the many users of the products. Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff, Demi Lovato, and Cristina Aguilera have all been spotted with these cylindrical spheres in hand.

Burt’s Bees, Chapstick, or Blistex can’t compete on many levels especially when it coms to flavors. Evolution of Smooth is on another level and gives the general public unique flavored tastes with the very best being such as:

  • Medicated Tangerine
  • Strawberry Sorbet
  • Passion Fruit
  • Honeysuckle Honeydew
  • Summer Fruit

How EOS Revolutionized Lip Balm

Chapstick has been the go-to lip balm for dry lips for years. A lip balm fan could go crazy and spring for cherry instead of original. Then came some of the competitors like Burt’s Bees, but they still looked the same. It was not until Evolution of Smooth and their colorful orbs came unto the scene that the dry lip sufferer got a fresh new product.

EOS sought to recreate the lip balm and they started with how they could engage all five senses. The orb gave users a whole new experience. These round balms gave the users a funky new taste and feel like never before. They became an instant hit. Orbs appeared in the hands of celebrities and across the front pages of the fashion magazines. The small 250 million company has now come in second place to Burt’s Bees. EOS lip balm currently sells 1 million units per week and it keeps going strong. The lip balm industry is a staple of many households, and EOS has made a name for themselves in an industry that is not going anywhere.

Sanjiv Mehra, co-founder, pointed out that their intention was to make a product and distribute it. As a start up, EOS wanted to make a name for themselves. And they have. They appeal to a market that needs their new and trendy flavors, like watermelon. EOS products are available on Target, Walmart and even Ulta.


Securus Technologies Issues a Factual Statement to Counter Lies Spread by GTL

Securus Technologies, a globally recognized supplier of technology solutions for the corrections industry, has officially released corrections to the news issued by GTL on June 7, 2016. On its press release, GTL announced that the United States Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) had allowed it to seek damages and sanctions against Securus in forthcoming infringement charges in the Texas federal court. Securus Technologies has discredited this claim by confirming that PTAB is yet to make a decision during the forthcoming hearing.


According to Securus Technologies, the PTAB has not approved any of the 55 claims presented by GTL concerning the ‘816 patent. Additionally, the PTAB did not approve any innovations of the patent in question as being patentable. Securus has also confirmed that the court hearing is unlikely to take place anytime this year contrary to what GTL has been stating in its press release.


Since its establishment, Securus has strived to enter into innovative and acceptable financial transactions and agreements with firms that utilize its patented technology.
