NATURAL BATH & BODY PRODUCTS
About Dances With Bees Body Care
When we first started beekeeping in 2007, I bought a book about products from the hive. I was fascinated to learn that the single largest user of beeswax in the world is the cosmetics industry! I've gardened most of my life and have always had a special interest in growing and using herbs. It seemed natural to combine the products from the hive with the products from the garden into a unique Body Care line. One experiment led to another and to more research. As with all passions, that process never ends!
As Natural As Possible
It seems that every label we see screams "ALL NATURAL" ! The truth is that while the term "Organic" is closely regulated, the term "Natural" has no regulatory definition. In the cosmetic area, much mis-information is available about what the latest ingredient to avoid is. Some claims are valid and some are not. The consumer should use common sense in choosing what products to use and what to avoid. Our mission is to use natural and naturally sourced innovative ingredients to offer quality bath and body products that are "As Natural As Possible" and safe. Our products are free from parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde releasers, and SLS. We utilize several certified organic ingredients. We search for the best quality essential oils and do not use synthetic fragrance oils in our leave-on products. Last and not least, are our hive products; what could be more natural than honey? Our products flow from our ethics and the environmentally responsible lifestyle which we've had before we were Dances With Bees and before being green was cool!
Our soap is formulated to offer a creamy long lasting lather that cleans but does not leave skin feeling dried out. We use luxury oils like cocoa butter and babassu and use pure essential oils. Our honey boosts the lather and the beeswax makes a long lasting bar in the shower!
