Here at Herstat, we are big fans of the humble honeybee - the little creatures work tirelessly to make honey and keep their hive clean. They also collect natural substances from plants and trees to make a substance called propolis. The bees use propolis to help keep their hive sterile, while we use it as a preservative and it is one of several ingredients in our lip care products.
Our propolis goes through a purification process to remove any impurities and it works alongside the mineral oils and waxes, the lanolin and other ingredients to help soothe and moisturize your lips during an outbreak.
Bees are hard workers; if you've ever watched one of the furry little insects gathering pollen from the hollyhocks in your garden then you'll know that they seem to be pretty tenacious in their quest for the yellow stuff.
But, have you ever wondered how old a bee is when it starts gathering pollen, or whether drone bees live a long and happy life? If your answer is yes, then we have the infographic to answer your queries.
