Beeswax: A Miracle Moisturizer
Beeswax is precious. Ten pounds of honey yields one pound of wax. To produce this precious pound, honeybees collectively fly 150,000 miles—that’s like flying around the world six times! So to make a single 0.15-ounce of SilkBee lip balm, honeybees flew hundreds of miles, amounting to a coast-to-coast journey from Washington D.C. to Portland.
Along the way, they land softly on petals and kiss the inside of flowers, pollinating plants to give us nourishment. So, from the pollinations services it took to make a single SilkBee lip balm, thousands of fruits bloomed. Some of my favorites include blueberries, watermelon, and papaya.
