Frequently Asked Questions

What is the shelf life of Bearded Lady Brand balms?

We do not use preservatives. Only 100% all-natural goodness. As long as you keep our balm at room temperature and out of direct sunlight, you can expect your Bearded Lady Brand balm to last one year from your date of purchase.

My balm melted or became grainy/bumpy. What do I do?

If your balm melts, put it in a cool location and it will resolidify. If it becomes grainy, it has NOT gone bad. It has simply experienced a temperature change. You may either melt it in a microwave-safe dish and pour it back into the container to let it solidify or use it as is since it's still good to use.

I'm allergic to bee stings. Am I allergic to beeswax?

A bee sting allergy means you are allergic to the bee's venom, which is not in either honey or beeswax. It is certainly possible to be allergic to honey or beeswax (especially if you have a bad pollen allergy), but that's a completely separate allergy, unrelated to bee sting venom.

Do your products contain petroleum?

Bearded Lady Brand products are 100% all-natural. They are petroleum-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free, cruelty-free, and 100% vegetarian. In essence, if we wouldn't feel comfortable putting our products on our children, we wouldn't feel comfortable putting them on you.
