Ever had your favorite skincare brand stop making your favorite product? I am a lip balm fanatic, so when my favorite tinted lip balm was discontinued I was on a mission to make it myself. I looked up the ingredients and was horrified when I realized that there were over 30, most of which I couldn’t pronounce!! Scratch that idea! From there, I set out to make a simple natural version. Who knew a simple little lip balm could take over 6 months to perfect?
But that’s how serious we are about getting it right (although the perfectionist with a bit of OCD in me probably also has something to do with it). We want our customers to feel confident that they can trust the products that they’re putting on their skin. We also want them to be able to feel beautiful, both inside and out. Our Rosy Citrus lip balm was our original creation, but there’s been so many more exciting things since then, and more to come! The best part? Our products average less than 10 ingredients – they’re completely natural and we promise you can pronounce them all!
So where do honey bees play into all of this? Well, let me tell you about this amazing thing called the Minnesota State Fair. Drawing nearly 2 million visitors each year it’s the 2nd largest in the country. In addition to all of the wild and crazy foods, you can actually learn all about bees and bee farms in the great state of Minnesota, and discover all of the interesting benefits of honey bee byproducts (honey, beeswax, propolis, etc). My husband and I watched honey get harvested and the beekeeper talked about all of the fantastic ways that honey is good for you - not just for eating, but for your skin as well. The wheels started turning and there it was: the magic that we wanted to put in our products and what truly makes them special. Totally natural products, with the added "bee power" from honey bees (and the more local, the better!).
We conduct LOTS of research on the ingredients we use, and handcraft all of our products using only natural ingredients in small batches to ensure the highest quality. It's an ongoing mad-scientist quest to discover all the ways natural ingredients (and #beepower) can be used in amazing ways, and we're so excited that you're here for the journey!
