COMPANY: Beecology, Cleveland
A Northeast Ohio family is trying to create some buzz with their new business venture.
“We are beekeepers who produce reasonably priced eco-friendly, natural bath and body products, including sulfate-free, preservative-free shampoo and conditioner, as well as (moisturizing soaps) and a fabulous honey hand and body cream that is paraben-free,” says Amy Rzepka, who runs the business with her husband, David, and their three kids, Molly, 18, Rachel, 17 and Nathan, 14.
Beecology is marketed through the Internet, regional farmer's markets and boutique retail outlets in Ohio, Colorado, Michigan and New York.
Beecology “offers products that we handcraft from natural, renewable ingredients for the body — inside and out,” according to Ms. Rzepka. “Product assortment currently includes essential oil-nourishing soaps, preservative-free body wash, sulfate-free hair care products, antioxidants creams, raw natural honey and Buzz Balm lip balm.”
