The color of our Bee Sparkling glycerin soap varies with the honey that is used! The color of the honey depends upon the nectar source (what blossoms the honey bees pollinate).
Honey color ranges from nearly colorless to dark brown. The color does not effect the soap.
There are more than 300 unique types of honey available in the United States.
Beeswax is rich in vitamin A which softens and rehydrates dry skin and also aids in cellular reconstruction. When blended into creams and lotions, Beeswax forms a protective barrier on the surface of the skin. This barrier provides a film of protection against irritants.
Lip balm that contains beeswax reduces your chances of developing chapped lips. See our Honey Bee Kissed Lip Soother.
Also see our Bee Illuminated Soy Candle. Not just a candle but a warm silky soy lotion that contains Beeswax.
While our products are natural, know that sensitivities can occur.
If you have extremely sensitive and allergic skin, always do a ‘patch test’ for skin sensitivity before using new products. Many things can cause sensitivities such as overly dry or injured skin, excessive exposure to environmental factors, age, genetic factors, even some medications can cause rashes or red itchy skin when using skin care products.
The best place to do a patch test is on the side of the neck. The skin here is thinner and usually more sensitive than on the back of your hand. Apply a small amount to the side of the neck, leave the product on for 15 to 20 minutes. Usually any skin sensitivity will be experienced right away. Should this occur, wash the product off with cool water and mild soap. Witch hazel can be applied to soothe any burning sensation. Discontinue use of product if you experience sensitivities.
