Our Stance on Bee Products
Hey vegans, we respect you. But if you’re against using products from bees, we disagree. Bees are essential to our eco-system as they are pollinators. Using Beeswax and honey does not reduce bee populations. It ensures that we protect bees so that we may have beeswax and honey for our products next year!
- We could use waxes derived from soy, but the majority of soy is GMO. GMO soy is designed to be pesticide resistant. Pesticide has been linked to colony collapse.
- People who sell bee products depend on bees. We do not benefit if bees die out.
- The Egyptians considered bees sacred, believing they were tears of the Sun God Ra.
The benefits of bee products is well documented, therefore we consider our use of bee products beneficial for humans and bees alike. Beeswax is what provides our products with a simple, natural and safe wax for our Chippies lip balm line.
Quaternized honey is also an excellent moisturizer and conditioner for our face and body lotion.
