Currently a beekeeper of several years, and a student of apiary medicine, Tammie understands the powers that raw beeswax lends to lips. Majority of beeswax based lip balms use refined beeswax because it is stripped of color and taste. Not Shea Terra Organics' lip butter. You get the sweet taste of the hive while benefitting from the therapeutic powers of raw wax. The antiseptic, healing and protective properties of raw beeswax form a moisture seal that prevents cracking and soothes lips.
Shea Terra Organics' source of this precious, raw, natural treasure comes from a very heart moving project in the jungles of Uganda. A British project, first seen as a way to turn a profit, was taken over by an extraordinary man named Simon, with an even more extraordinary heart. Uganda has been a country of war between the government and a seperatist group for many years. Young boys are often stolen and forced to become soldiers, even made to kill. Simon took escaped victims and taught them how to farm honey for a living. We impart this highly therapeutic wax in our lip butter in support of Simon's efforts.
Work out your breath while getting ultimate lip protection? Absolutely, with Shea Terra Organics' delicious blend of cooling, refreshing mint essential oil and valencia orange. Always keep a tube on hand in case of unexpected close encounters, an intentional tangle with an onion, or even a light intermission between meals.
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.
