At Bee Good we use our own beeswax, honey and propolis for their remarkable skin-conditioning benefits. These natural ingredients have been used to heal and repair the skin for thousands of years. Gathered from our own hives and those of our trusted network of bee keepers, these ingredients are what makes our skincare so effective and unique.
Honey is one of Nature's greatest healers. It's both antiseptic and soothing and is superb at nourishing and moisturising the skin. Wildflower honey is rich in nutrients which make it perfect for use in skin salves and creams.
Honey is also full of antioxidants, ideal for combating damage to the skin. These compounds inhibit oxidation and are extremely beneficial in helping minimise signs of ageing. It has strong and proven anti-bacterial properties and has been used to treat various skin diseases and even as a wound dressing for thousands of years.
We collect honey from our own hives and from other bee farmers exclusively within the UK only. Our honey is totally natural and comes from sources we know and trust with every batch being laboratory tested prior to use in our skincare. We source locally to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible.
Beeswax is an ancient, natural ingredient used for centuries in balms and waxes. We use it in our lip balms and hand creams to give a really deep soothing, calming and moisturising effect.
Beeswax is a natural emollient, it reduces water loss and acts as a shield against the elements.
Because of its soothing nature, Beeswax is often used in products for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. As it's totally natural the chances of irritation are much lower so it's perfect for sensitive skin.
Beeswax is great for dry, chapped skin on the lips, hands and heels but is effective anywhere on the body.
Propolis is a mixture of tree saps and resins collected by the bees and used to strengthen the beeswax comb, fill small gaps, and to sterilise and protect the colony.
With over 350 active, natural ingredients, propolis has proven and powerful anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties, perfect for cleansers and treatment products. It has been used to treat infections in animals and humans for thousands of years and we've found the perfect way to harness its properties to benefit the skin.
We use extracts from bee-friendly flowers such as Borage and Echium and seed oils such as Luanaria, Crambe and Camelina that have amazing benefits for the skin.
We prefer to source cold pressed oils which don’t involve extreme heat in their extraction and retain the most nutrients.
We also use Blackcurrant seed, Raspberry seed and Strawberry seed oils (harvested as a by-product of fruit juice production). These are full of nutrients, natural vitamins and anti-oxidants. These extracts make our products nourishing, moisturising and protective of the skin, the whole body all over.
All of our bee ingredients are sourced directly from our network of beekeepers, our plant oils are harvested from British growers and our products are all proudly made in the UK.
We promote bee welfare at every touch point in our business and no bees are every harmed in collecting their precious ingredients. This is why we NEVER use bee venom or Royal Jelly as it harms the bees when it's harvested. We are totally committed to conservation are on mission to help bees survive and thrive. We also never use synthetic colours, mineral oil, silicone, SLS and SLES or parabens and we never test on animals.
