You know me... always on the lookout for the "latest and greatest"! Well, I found a great new product I want to tell you about. The company is called Beecology (fun name!) and they make the coolest beauty products!
Here's an introduction from their website :
So how did we become a well known distributor of natural bath and body products, including: all natural shampoo and conditioner products, all natural soaps, and all natural lip balms?
About four years ago a co-worker of mine asked if he could put a beehive at my family farm. I said yes, thinking I would bear no responsibility, but (here it comes) after two weeks his wife became pregnant and he told me he couldn't tend to them. I was a beekeeper by default. At first I couldn't believe I would be taking care of bees, but I soon became fascinated with bee culture and science.
I started to learn about bees and attended workshops at The Ohio State University agricultural campus. Beyond enjoying the science of bees, just the act of tending to bees gave me time to reflect. It became a very cathartic activity. And I started to realize that the world of bees imitated our life on earth. The tiniest changes in the environment are reflected in the bees' environment, which led me to think about the foods we eat and the chemicals we use and the impact these outside factors have on bees and on us.
Natural body care products from nature’ s impressive body of work.
Family-made small-batch hair, skin and lip products.
Some may feel that in this culture of consumerism and consumption that it may sound like disingenuous claptrap to claim that we did not create Beecology to make money. Think what you will, but we do donate 10% of our profits to charities. We do engage in business practices that are not necessarily the most profitable such as bending over backward to use natural, sustainable ingredients in every product.

Thanks, Beecology for making great products and for introducing them to me! You definitely have a new customer!
