Equator is thrilled to introduce Canada’s first fair trade, organic certified natural beeswax lip balm: Zambeezi™. Zambeezi lip balm is made with 85% organic beeswax produced by farmers in the vast and chemical-free Miongo forests of Zambia. To sooth and protect skin, this unique organic lip balm has rich and exotic base oils like mungongo, a natural oil long-used by locals as a solution to dry and/or damaged skin.
Like Equator, Zambeezi™ strives to source its ingredients in a responsible and sustainable way. They do this by using organic certified ingredients and paying the producers and workers a fair and living wage. They also invest in the communities where they work by partnering with local churches to build schools, clinics, drilling wells and other projects that serve needs they identify.
