Beecology- GIVEAWAY

Recently I got to try out some products from Beecology. First of all, let me say. I'm a big fan of bees :). I am. Bees are so very important for our eco system, and with mysterious Colony collapse disorder it worries me. So bee keepers have a special place in my heart.
Beecology sent us some wonderful products to try. Wonderful natural, paraben and SLS free products. The family and I got to lather ourselves up in the Natural Lavender and Bergamot body wash. Great lather, the scent was pleasant and not over bearing. We also got to test the Original Honey and Hand and Body cream, awesome! We had the unscented. Not greasy, just soaks into the skin and makes it smooth and soft. Perfect because with ingredients like Olive oil, honey, shea butter and propolis it's not just packed with power, it's something I don't mind putting on the girl's skin. The Beeswax Lip Balm goes on smooth and isn't sticky at all. Very moisturizing.

Not only are these awesome products, Beecology gives back 10% of net profits, check out their page. On each product there is a charity code that you can type in on that page. Once typed in, a list of charities comes up and YOU get to pick the charity of your choice. AWESOME.

Here's some more information from Beecology about the company and how it started.
About six years ago I agreed to let a co-worker put a beehive on my family farm. I didn't plan to be responsible for it, but when life events kept him from tending to it, I became a beekeeper.

I found bee science and culture fascinating, and I soon began researching bees and attending workshops at The Ohio State University agricultural campus. Beyond enjoying the science, I found that tending the bees gave me time to reflect. It became a cathartic activity. 

I also came to realize how connected the bees' world is to ours - any changes in our environment affect their environment as well. I began to think about the foods we eat, the chemicals we use, and the impact these factors have on bees and on us. That's when the idea hit me: I wanted to make natural skincare and hair products using honey, beeswax, and other ingredients that are good for us and our world. 

This is the philosophy behind Beecology. Today my family and I produce a full line of natural products - lip balm, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion - that help our customers keep their skin and hair healthy the natural way.

But being a good corporate citizen isn't just about using the Earth's products wisely. So in addition to drawing from the world to make our natural skincare and hair products, we give back through our charitable arm, We invite you to join us in making a difference.

2. When we first started making our products, we made them for friends and family, we had no intention of selling them—they are produced with the highest quality ingredients available.
