Fair Trade and Organic
You’d have to go deep into the forests of central Africa to find a region wild and pure enough to produce organic beeswax. And that’s where you’d find us hard at work creating Zambeezi, made with wild harvested mungongo, an edible nut long used by the local Zambians as a moisturizer. With precious organic essences, Zambeezi is a luscious lip balm with a wild gingery lemongrass flavor.
By supporting Zambeezi, you are not only enjoying a great product. You are also bringing jobs and income to rural African villages, and creating sustainable alternatives to destructive logging and mining in the pristine Miombo forests of Zambia.
From Africa, With Love
The best lip balm starts with the best ingredients. Ours is the best of the best, our unique formula utilizes rich and nourishing ingredients that you won’t find anywhere else.
Pure Organic Beeswax
Natural beeswax has been known since antiquity to have moisturizing, emulsifying and antiseptic qualities. No wonder it’s one of the most popular ingredients in high-end cosmetics. Ours is different. To produce beeswax, thousands of bees fan out over a large area to find pollen and nectar. In regions contaminated with pesticides, bees can bring these chemicals back to get concentrated in the hive. Certified organic beeswax requires vast areas of pristine land. Ours comes from deep in the forests of central Africa where the environment is still unspoiled.
To sooth and protect your skin, we use rich and exotic base oils like mungongo. Long used by locals as a solution to dry skin, modern testing reveals that mungongo oil has a composition that rivals lanolin in its ability to heal and moisturize damaged skin.
We produce our pure, naturally extracted essential oils ourselves. We carefully grow herbs like lemongrass and rosemary that give our lip balm natural antioxidants and a lovely scent.
