Ok. Since discovering what beeswax was and how it was made, I have to admit that it kinda grossed me out. My friend and I wanted to try our hands at some lip-balm making and I chose this base for reasons mentioned above. It feels good on my lips, but it is quite soft and it absorbs into my lips. I feel it only minimally helps my chapped lips even after several uses. Even though it is understandable because this product does not contain beeswax, it would be nice if it was a little harder especially for those of us enduring those scorching southern summers.
