Recently I had the opportunity to try out two products from Beecology. Beecology is a family owned company that makes all natural products to help us use natural products to keep our hair and skin healthy. They make lotion, shampoo, body wash, and many other natural products.
It all started when the founder of the company, David Rzepka, let a friend put a beehive on his land. He eventually began tending to it and started thinking about all of the connections that bees and humans share. He realized that any changes in our environment affects bees as well. He decided to make natural skincare products using honey and other natural products. That was six years ago.
I received a full sized version of the All Natural Grapefruit and Lemongrass Body Wash and a trial sized version of the Original Honey Hand and Body Cream. My fave was the Hand and Body Cream. I am a lotionaholic and I absolutely love the feel of the lotion. It left my hands feeling smooth and moisturized. The smell of the Lemongrass Body Wash was different. It has a slight lemony smell to it.
I love that this company has also pledged to give back! They give 10% of their net profits through their charity web site sweetyear.org. Proceeds from all sales go towards environmental and social issues. So if you order you can feel good about giving back as the people at beecology ask that you pick which charity you would like a portion of the profits of your order to go towards. You can try a natural product and give back at the same time.
