About the Repcillin Lip Balms
Repcillin Crocodile Oil Lip Balm SPF7 is an unscented, water resistant, 100% natural, intensely soothing and repairing lip balm that is enriched with pure crocodile oil, providing immediate relief and treatment to dry lips. It softens and heals dry lips and contains only 5 natural ingredients which work to care for your lips, protecting them from the wind, cold weather and the sun: organic cocoa seed butter, organic virgin coconut oil, crocodile oil, refined/organic candelilla wax and Non-GMO Tocopherol (Vitamin E).
We have consciously decided not to use beeswax in our lip balm formulation. Bees and other pollinating insects play an essential role in ecosystems. Bees make more than honey – they are key to food production because they pollinate crops. Bumblebees, other wild bees, and insects like butterflies, wasps, and flies all provide valuable pollination services. A third of the food that we eat depends on pollinating insects: vegetables like zucchini, fruits like apricot, nuts like almonds, herbs like coriander, edible oils like canola, and many more… In Europe alone, the growth of over 4,000 vegetables depends on the essential work of pollinators. Since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed the devastating and sudden disappearance of bees, and report unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies. If wild pollinator declines continue, we run the risk of losing a substantial proportion of the world’s flora.
Instead of beeswax, we are using a wax called candelilla, which is a plant wax derived from the candelilla shrub. Please refer to our next page “Candelilla wax” to find out more about where our candelilla wax comes from and how it is sourced. We are committed to replace beeswax with candelilla wax in our formulation of Repcillin Balm High Concentrate very soon in the future as well.
Besides being very good at hydrating skin, Organic coconut oil has a naturally-occurring SPF7 (to find out more please click here)
