DID YOU KNOW?
Born Lippy contains Community Fair Trade beeswax which comes from the mountain forests of the Adamaoua Region of Northern Cameroon, where beekeepers have been harvesting honey from wild forest bees for at least two centuries. Since 2007, The Guiding Hope organisation - supported through our Community Fair Trade programme - has enabled traditional beekeepers to increase the quality and variety of what they sell, and set up a system of ethical trade in which everyone is paid a fair price. Five per cent of Guiding Hope’s profits go back to the beekeeping communities through their charitable arm, The Hope Foundation. Born Lippy also contains Community Fair Trade Marula Oil supplied by the Eudafano Women’s Co-operative of Namibia, helping them to gain economic independence and a new found self-esteem.
