Beecology Original Hand & Body Cream: Cucumber and Green Tea

Cucumber & Green Tea Hand & Body Cream

Nurture your skin with our luscious Cupuacu, Shea butter, and olive oil lotion. We blend exotic natural moisturizers from around the world to create a Shea butter hand cream with extraordinary smoothness and a never-greasy feel, and now we added a light cucumber and green tea scent.

True to our name, a trio of bee-provided wonders brings soothing, healing relief to all types of skin. Our very own honey gives this olive oil lotion a light, delicate scent, and sweetly harmonizes with beeswax and bee-derived propolis to lock in moisture. With the rich rejuvenation and antioxidant power of Cupuacu and the famous moisturizing of Shea butter, hand cream becomes total body care.

This hand & body cream is made with Shea butter, Cupuacu, and olive oil. These ingredients are made to soften even the roughest skin. It isn’t greasy although it’s creamy and thick.

Cucumber and skin have the same amount of water, so cucumber is naturally moisturizing. It also naturally soothes and smoothes skin, while ridding your skin of all it’s problems.

I had never heard of a cucumber/green tea mix until now, and I think it smells absolutely amazing. It smells cool and refreshing. It is rich but absorbs immediately.

My cuticles have gotten better since I’ve been using this lotion. I’ve had this lotion inside my crochet bag. The yarn dries out my hands, because I’m constantly wrapping it around my fingers. This eases the dryness while keeping my hands smelling great. It even makes the yarn smell good!

Here in the last few years Green Tea has been blown up. It has been put into so many different things- shampoos, conditioners, lotions because of the added health benefits. Green tea helps to rid of excess, dull & dry skin cells to rejuvenate the skin.

The mixture of these two ingredients make s an absolutely amazing combination. I really like it. I even use it on my kids after a bath because it smells so good!

 

Lavender with Bergamot Foaming Moisturizing Hand Soap

 

Our all-natural liquid soap made from coconut, olive, and hemp oil now comes in a hand foamer. This hand soap has a wonderful feel and a smooth luxurious lather and is never drying like detergent based foaming hand soap.You will quickly come to love the luxurious feel of our all-natural foaming hand soap.

This hand soap gently cleans the skin with natural ingredients and absolutely NO added chemicals. The mixture of Lavender and Bergamot is something that I’ve never smelled before. It smells good but the Bergamot takes over the Lavender, it’s still a relaxing smell.

In our house, with 2 small kids- we are always washing our hands. So we needed a soap that didn’t dry our hands out. This does offer a barrier from dry, cracked skin.

This hand soap is hand-pumped, and only gives you the amount to wash your hands. It doesn’t overflow your hands and get everywhere which is a big plus in my book. The pump wasn’t hard to work- my 3 year old could work it. BUT you can turn the nozzle to the right so it locks the top where they can’t get it in without your permission. ANOTHER huge plus.

My daughter is like a monster tornado when it comes to getting into stuff she shouldn’t. Whether it be makeup, lotion, fingernail polish, body wash, or soap.. she loves to play in it. So I really liked the fact that I could sit this on my counter and know she couldn’t get it, yet it was in access when we needed it.

The other great benefits are that it only contains natural ingredients and they all work together to give you fresh, clean, germ free hands.

The Aloe in it helps to keep skin moisturized. Washing your hands too much with a soap that doesn’t contain Aloe will definitely lead to dry hands and patches of cracked skin.

The Coconut oil in the soap is a natural moisturizing ingredient. Although it is moisturizing, it won’t leave your hands feeling greasy or oily. Coconut oil also helps to naturally strip dead skin cells from your hands while helping your hands to soak up the moisture.

The Olive oil contain vitamins A & E, which are antioxidants. These antioxidants help to protect and heal your skin at the same time. The lavender provides the amazing scent as well as helps with the antibacterial part of the soap.

There is nothing I would change about this, it is a very high quality hand soap for a great price. My kids love using it better than bar soaps and it is totally convenient because of the hand pump.

 

Tree Tea Oil Bar Soap

I was really excited to try this. I was watching Dr. Oz one day and he said that Tree Tea oil is great for infections (especially in the toenails)! Although I don’t have infections in my toenails, they have turned a slight yellow color where I keep them painted at all times without letting them breathe before applying another coat.

Tree Tea oil also relieves inflammation and pain while helping to prevent infections. Because it has such healing properties, it will also help to heal any problem areas with your skin.

This soap also contains Shea butter, beeswax, and avocado, palm, coconut, and olive oil so it is moisturizing as well as healing.

 

About Beecology:

David Rzepka allowed a co-worker to keep a beehive on his farm.  The guy’s wife got pregnant and was unable to care for the bees.  Rzepka assumed care for the bees and became fascinated with the bee culture.  He witnessed how the world of bees imitated our life on earth, and how the slightest changes in the environment are reflected in the bees’ environment.

This led to his thinking about the chemicals we use and their impact on all of us.  These revelations ultimately inspired Rzepka to make products from bees that are better for us, and thus, Beecology was born.

I love that this works up a nice, thick lather. It helps to heal acne, cuts, and psoriasis. It also helps to maintain a nice odor- knocking out body odor all day. It is also soothing for poison ivy, sunburn, and bug bites. AND it also helps athlete’s foot, oily skin, and rashes!

I never NEVER knew that Tree tea oil could do so much for the skin. This soap is amazing. It smells amazing and feels refreshing. I don’t usually use soap on my body (body wash gal, lol).. but this soap intrigued me to use it!! It did help with itchy feet and Adams’s athlete’s foot. It made my skin feel amazing and I will definitely continue to use this!
