About Us

Our Mission: 

Kobees is an environmentally conscious brand that looks to be able to give back, what we have taken. If you’ve never heard the saying “We aren’t inheriting the earth from our ancestors we are taking it away from our future children.” It’s true. We need to start taking responsibility for some of the actions we have set upon the earth we have been blessed to be born to. Things take time and no one will be able to change overnight but starting with one change has a domino effect, Kobee’s products are a simple way to creating a positive start to a more friendly environment. Kobee’s Lip balm is packaged in Cardboard compostable chapstick tubes, that are biodegradable and compostable, we also have Lip balm in aluminum tins that are recyclable and reusable. Even further than the Lip Balm we want whoever is using or wearing the Kobee’s brand to know they are doing good for the environment by just purchasing a single tube of chapstick or buying a sweatshirt, water bottle, straw, everything on our product line you will be making a difference. We look into and research organizations that are doing good for the environment so you don’t have to, with a percentage of Kobees total sales going to Non-profit organizations that are committed to cleaning our oceans and lakes, efforts to replant and curb deforestation and provide cleaner air for our future. One small change is all it takes. BEE the difference. BEE the change. Kobee’s

 

Ingredients:

At Kobee's we are not only worried about the environment but also making sure we use the best ingredients guaranteed to make your skin feel smooth and hydrated. We use no chemicals or preservatives. We believe only things natural should be going into your body even if that decreases the shelf life our of products. We use four simple ingredients to make the creamy balm you know and love. 

Beeswax: A natural emulsifier in cosmetics, used to bind many types of lip balms and lotions. 

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil packed with fatty acid and collagen helps keep skin hydrated, and healthy. Also with its anti-inflammatory properties its a natural healer for chapped lips, improving overall skin integrity.

Sunflower Seed Oil: This oil is packed with Vitamin A and E which promotes healthy skin. These Vitamins also act as antioxidants which help regenerate damaged cells.

Mango Butter: Adds the smoothness and soothing properties you feel in every Kobee's Lip balm. This magical ingredient adds anti inflammatory and antioxidants to the already great balm.

 

No PLASTIC 

At Kobee's one the main things we notice is all the trash everywhere. Literally everywhere. I started this company as a freshman at Loyola Chicago. Living in a big city definitely has its perks, but one of the downsides I constantly saw was the amount of trash that was everywhere. Even a relatively clean looking building, street or park would always have some sort of trash hiding. 

Due to this we have made our products out of plastic free materials and strive to keep our impact on the environment as low as possible. Our lip balms tubes made out of biodegradable cardboard are the perfect and easy start living a more sustainable lifestyle. We know that basically everything on earth is made out of plastic, so it can be hard to know where to start on your sustainable journey. With one small switch to Kobee's balm you are already making a difference. One balm is all it takes. 

 

Your Purchase Supports: 

Every purchase you make supports not only your initiative to start living more sustainable but it gives back as well. When you purchase a Kobee's product a small percentage of the profit is allocated to Ocean cleanup, Tree restoration and Air pollution cleanup. By supporting Kobee's you are also supporting these three great causes.
