You can help save the bees while protecting your lips with Nature’s Aid!
Beeswax is the natural wax produced by honey bees when they build and repair their hives. Secreted by the worker bees, it is also used to form cells for storing the honey. When the honey is harvested, the beeswax cappings are removed, melted down, and filtered to make blocks of pure beeswax which is used in cosmetics and personal care products. Beeswax is an essential non-allergenic ingredient in our new Aloe vera Lip Balm.
Beeswax moisturizes and softens your skin because it is rich in fatty acids and acts as a natural emollient and humectant. Experts say that it has the ability to “lock in moisture” to protect your lips and skin. It also contains Vitamin A which helps to keep lips moist! If you want to protect your lips from ultraviolet rays, beeswax is an effective preventative. A non-toxic and natural antiseptic with powerful antibacterial properties, beeswax can also protect your lips from infections and inflammation. The pleasing aroma of natural beeswax makes it a perfect choice for our all natural Lip Balms, formulated without harmful synthetic ingredients.
The supply of beeswax for cosmetic uses is at risk due to the dwindling bee population and high incidences of colony collapse disorder, which concerned environmentalists attribute to the extensive use of harmful pesticides and herbicides. Honeybees are responsible for pollination which is essential for the protection of the ecology, the environment and our food supply. Protecting the biodiversity of our ecosystem, pollination ensures seed production in most flowering plants and supports the maintenance of natural plant communities.
