This organic beeswax lip balm has been in stores for four years now and is gaining a reputation for providing superior lip protection. Beeswax is known for its ability to protect lips by locking in moisture. It also possesses natural antibiotic properties that help keep lips healthy. All of our beeswax comes from upstate New York with the majority of our bees residing inside Catskill Park itself. A lot of beeswax comes from china these days but we only use beeswax made by bees living in Upstate New York.
We then combine this locally harvested beeswax with wild harvested Shea Butter. Shea butter has been know for thousands of years for its ability to keep skin moist. Even Cleopatra used it! Finally, vitamin E helps complete the perfect trifecta of lip protection. Vitamin E is known for its antioxidant properties and helps heal chapped lips. It also helps provide a moist layer of protection over the lips. It is the vitamin e that gives this product its smooth feel. Compare that to companies that use petroleum jelly or wool grease. These products are used as substitutes because they are cheaper. We would rather pay more to make this product than have customers applying wool grease to their lips. Vitamin e also helps protect fatty acids which in turn helps maintain the lip health.
This formula is simple and free of any other common ingredients found in most lip balm such as lanolin which is wool grease. Our product is of course not vegan due to the use of the local upstate wax but we assure no bees were harmed in the making of this product..
