I love natural products and Beecology has the cutest line of natural products. They are made on a family farm. I included the story below, but first let me tell you that I tried their small gift box that contains shampoo, condition, hand & body wash, and cream. I also tried their Buzz Balm that contains peppermint and honey. I liked all of their products, but the Peppermint and Honey Body Wash was my favorite! I think that it is perfect for my shower in the morning because of the peppermint. My toddler loves these products because of the little bee on the packaging. I let him use the cream and the Buzz Balm which made him happy. He smacks his little lips after using the Buzz Balm - I think because he likes the peppermint. These products are keepers (from awesome bee keepers)! Personally, I like them better than the Burt's Bees products that I've used in the past. I predict that these trendy products will gain a fast following!
"Beecology Natural Skincare and Hair Products
About six years ago I agreed to let a co-worker put a beehive on my family farm. I didn't plan to be responsible for it, but when life events kept him from tending to it, I became a beekeeper.
I found bee science and culture fascinating, and I soon began researching bees and attending workshops at The Ohio State University agricultural campus. Beyond enjoying the science, I found that tending the bees gave me time to reflect. It became a cathartic activity.
I also came to realize how connected the bees' world is to ours - any changes in our environment affect their environment as well. I began to think about the foods we eat, the chemicals we use, and the impact these factors have on bees and on us. That's when the idea hit me: I wanted to make natural skincare and hair products using honey, beeswax, and other ingredients that are good for us and our world.
This is the philosophy behind Beecology. Today my family and I produce a full line of natural products - lip balm, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion - that help our customers keep their skin and hair healthy the natural way.
But being a good corporate citizen isn't just about using the Earth's products wisely. So in addition to drawing from the world to make our natural skincare and hair products, we give back through our charitable arm, SweetYear.org. We invite you to join us in making a difference.
