My Manx Beeswax Lip Balm is now on Sale online
For those interested in trying out my handmade beeswax lip-balm, I've placed it for sale on Etsy - simply click the below button which will take you to my shop. I'm very pleased to be making this product and have already received very positive feedback from my customers. Though I'm using other local beekeeper's beeswax to produce my balms for now, I'll be using my own from my first hive by the end of the summer. That will be an exciting time and I hope to use the proceeds from my lip balm sales to invest into more hives and thus into doing my part to continue the beekeeping tradition on the Isle of man.
This handmade lip balm has been created using local Isle of Man beeswax combined with rich Shea Butter and satiny Sweet Almond Oil. It is a balm that feels silky and moisturising on your lips yet is durable enough to last for long periods between applications.
Beeswax naturally protects the lips from loss of moisture yet allows your skin to breathe, unlike conventional lip-balms which use petroleum based ingredients. Beeswax even contributes to the healing of chapped, broken or infected lips due to it's anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. Thus it can be effective in helping cold sores and other lip injuries to heal.
Shea Butter is a highly moisturising oil that naturally contains sun-screen properties. Sunburns can easily occur on the lips in all types of weather and will not only cause the lips to become swollen but is a leading cause for lips to break out in blisters and sores.
The beeswax in this product is produced by non-commercial honey bees on the Isle of Man. We're a special place in Europe and the world since our bee population is very healthy and free from Varroa - a killer of bee colonies around the globe. By buying this product you're supporting local small scale beekeepers and contributing to an industry that will probably play a large role in honeybee conservation in the future.
