What are two of the best ingredients you can possibly use on your lips? Give up? Protective beeswax and healing shea butter! The journey to make our delicious Menthe Cardamom Organic Shea Lip Butter begins in the dark jungles of Uganda. Tucked inside, not too many miles away from where wild gorillas roam, colonies of bees are tended to in hopes of harvesting their sweet honey and healing beeswax. Their keepers are not your run of the mill beekeepers. Oh no, many of the men and women who are trained and supplied with equipment are former childhood soldiers of Uganda's rebel army. At the age these children should have been toting books to school they were lugging around heavy artillery instead. Today there is hope for these former childhood soldiers. Their raw, golden beeswax now finds its home in Shea Terra Organics' delicious, healing lip butters. This natural wonder seals cracks, locks in moisture and protects lips from the elements.
Next, we search Africa for its most quenching and healing emollients. Organic shea butter comes up top on the list. Anti-inflammatory shea butter penetrates lips providing skin with the flexibility it needs to fight off cracking. Combined with emollient Ootanga watermelon seed oil and thick wild plum oil, these oils offer hours of lip protection and healthy shine.
To top off this gourmet creation we stir in fresh peppermint oil and carminative cardamom oil. These two refreshing oils will keep your breath fresh all day and are even good to aid digestion after a meal. Our lip butters are naturally sweetened with stevia leaf so you'll probably be tasting your lips all day long.
About Shea Terra Organics
Not only do Shea Terra Organics' skin care treatments assist in preservation, they are also the backbone of economic sustainability for many hardworking families across the continent. Since early 2000, Shea Terra Organics has worked closely with cooperatives and conservation groups to introduce Africa's time-tested ingredients to the world.
Shea Terra Organics was the vision of Tammie's quest to create markets for natural products from third world countries, which would help alleviate poverty while preserving diminishing habitats. Sufferers of skin ailments across the world sought out Tammie's therapeutic grade shea butter products because they were amazingly affordable at a time when shea butter was sold at hundreds of dollars per pound.
Realizing the immense impact that a single ingredient like shea butter could have on the world, Tammie Umbel began seeking out other rare and indigenous ingredients that could enhance or compliment the benefits of shea butter. Working closely with cooperatives, scientists, conservationists and non-profits, Tammie actively seeks out ingredients little known outside of remote parts of Africa. Not only are these time-tested ingredients highly therapeutic, they also bring income and awareness to preserve natural habitats, which would otherwise be destroyed. Shea Terra Organics was thus rebranded in a quest to reveal Africa's ancient skin care therapies -- in time to preserve them before they are lost forever.
