They say "necessity is the mother of invention.' and Shelissa Kemplin Kearney, model and founder of Shelissa Cosmetics, couldn't agree more. Unable to find an all-natural, long-lasting, super-hydrating lip balm to soothe her parched pucker under hot studio lights and being exposed to the elements at outdoor photo shoots, she developed her own. Shelissa's lip balms moisturizes, never feels waxy, and there's no need for constant re-application; it goes on super-smooth and stays that way.  With organic Virgin Olive Oil to hydrate, Vitamin E to heal and soothe over-worked kissers and SPF 15 to protect lips form the elements, it has become a favorite among models and athletes because of its soothing and protective properties. When asked if she would ever consider participating in a "kissing booth" for charity, Shelissa responded, "wouldn't that be something!"

Honey & Beeswax

     When the founder of Shelissa Organics was a child, her fondest memories are of spending time on her family's farm on the Chesapeake Bay learning how to harvest honey from the hives with her grandfather. It harkens back to the days when children ran through fields until sunset, running into the house with handfuls of wildflowers, rare stones collected in their pockets, and dirt on their hands. To this day, she drizzles honey on her breakfast or in her tea everyday.

Honey and beeswax have long been documented for healing sore throats and for boosting the immune system. Seasonal allergy suffers are wise to eat local honey to reduce allergies and a teaspoon in a cup of warm milk can calm a cough. For centuries, honey has been used as an exfoliant for the body and gentle enough to use on the face and scalp. For 19 years Shelissa Organics® has crafted extraordinary products with ethically and sustainably harvested beeswax and locally found ingredients. Our time-honored process and unique formulas produce goods without parabens, petroleum, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, or non-GMO ingredients.
