Natural Beeswax Lip Balms
I use Shea and Mango Butters in my lip balms
as they are non-greasy, absorb easily into the skin and have sun protection
properties. I use Sweet almond oil as it is
colorless, odorless and very high in essential fatty acids, particularly Oleic
acid. This oil is a good source of Vitamin E.
I use jojoba oil in my lip balm as well as
my all inclusive line of skin care products. Jojoba oil is one of the most
versatile and widely used lubricants in the world. It is actually a liquid wax
extracted from the jojoba bean and resembles the skinís oil (called the sebum)
It too has sunscreen properties. This oil is non-pore clogging and when
applied... it soaks in quickly, leaving the skin very velvety smooth.
"I, on the other hand, have been searching for the perfect lip balm. It has
to be in a tube, smell good but not cloying, and be neither sticky nor overly
waxy. Thanks to Naturally Bee-Ewe-Tiful of Houlton, I found it. Sandra
Hare-Estabrook's natural, beeswax-based beauty products are to die for. I'm wild
about her raspberry lip balm and the decadent chocolate body cream. Yum."
