Hi there! Here are answers to some questions you may have about BEAMMCO, our mission, and our products. If you have any additional questions feel feel to DM us on Instagram @BEAMMCO or to email us at hello@beammco.com. 

How often should I re-apply Beammco Balm?

Beammco Balm should be re-applied every 2 hours for the best protection during every day exposure.

Why SPF 15 and SPF 30?

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation SPF 15 is ideal for every day exposure like walking your dog, driving in your car, and even sitting near a window where you are exposed to sunlight.

SPF 30 or higher is recommended for extended outdoor activities. 

Can you get skin cancer on the lips?

Yes, lip cancer can occur along the upper or lower lip. Factors that increase risk for developing lip cancer includes unprotected sun exposure, fair skin, tobacco use, and a weakened immune system.

Should I wear Beammco Balm on cloudy, rainy, and cold?

Absolutely. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation clouds block sunlight but not the harmful UV rays that lead to skin cancer. 

Can I wear Beammco Balm under lipstick/lipgloss?

Yes, feel free to apply Beammco Balm as a primer or base layer under your favorite lipstick and lipglosses to keep your lips extra moisturized and protected. 

How do I know Beammco Balm is cruelty-free?

Beammco Balm is Leaping Bunny certified which means we have proven that not only was the product not tested on animals at any point during the manufacturing process, but none of the ingredients were either. We do not sell in regions that require animal testing of any kind.

Is Beammco Balm vegan?

Beammco Balm SPF 15 is 100% vegan. Beammco Balm Winter Mint SPF 30 is made with beeswax and is therefore not 100% vegan but we LOVE our bees! The beeswax is certified organic because of the way it is harvested and the plants that the bees have access to!

Both versions of Beammco Balm are certified cruelty free by Leaping Bunny! 

Which organizations does BEAMMCO support?

A portion of every purchase is earmarked for organizations like Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) and Cruelty Free International (CFI).

BFP is dedicated to rescuing and finding loving homes for Beagles, cats, bunnies and other animals that were previously used in testing labs.

CFI is dedicated to ending the practice of animal testing by championing research for alternatives, working with government officials to create legislation to end animal testing, and exposing what happens in labs as it tends to be very secretive.
