Botanicals the New Trend? Old news for Queen Bee customers.

dayspamag-cover-218x300As Queen Bee Organic Skin Care prepares to celebrate her tenth birthday this summer, we notice more and more press on the topic of switching to ingredients that have healthier compositions.  This months cover of Day Spa Magazine (not organic spa magazine) .  Also in the mail yesterday was the new Bergdorfs skin care or beauty book.  There is a super high end company botancial based skin care company’s products featured.  It is called Sunday Riley … $110 for one ounce of rich botanical oils.  This is the first time that both the skin care press and the high end merchandising heavy beauty counters are taking notice of the power of ingredients that are sourced naturally.  Everything you need for you skin can come from nature instead of a lab.

We know there will always be fans of vampire facials and injectable poisons like botox, but it is sure rewarding to have a trhiving botanical business in a category that is finally getting a little recognition from it’s own industry.

We want to thank our loyal customer base for getting ahead of the trend and being willing to try the switch to pure botanical oils rich in phyto nutrients instead of department store chemical laden lotions.  We hope you continue to have glowing radiant skin and that we can help you make the choices right for your skin.

Here is a link to the latest version of our skin care matrix which helps you identify the products that suit your skin type.  As always, you can call or text us with your questions and we are happy to “bee” of service.

Organic C Serum with sea buckthorn and skin drops gains momentum

sm_supersize-c-300x238We created our Organic Vitamin C Serum with Sea Buckthorn and Skin Drops back in 2006.  It has been a very popular product since we formulated it.  We have changed the packaging now three times.  Bigger.  Bigger.  Biggest.

We originally shipped this in a two dram bottle, then a half ounce dropper and now in a full size one ounce pump bottle.  Seems like our customers just couldn’t get enough!  We now sell thousands of bottles a year of this facial serum and we couldn’t be happier.

Watch our formulator Lynne talk about this lovely product!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKmq6xbqE0g

You can find it both on our website www.queenbeeskin.com and on amazon if you want extra fast shipping options.  How ever you find it, we think you will love the way your skin softens and becomes more radiant with daily use.

Hello Lavender Bathtime Fizzballs!

904173_655797081140152_5911165080943197919_o-300x200Since  last summer, the Queen has been working out a way to help a young girl in Boulder create a fizzing bath ball bizzness.  Lauren Wilson will charm you with her energy, thought provoking smarts and her concern for the environment.  (She might also be a dog whisperer.)

She worked through all the match to ensure they would be profitable, bought an automated pneumatic machine to make them consistent. We created a list of supplies and suppliers that make great products to ensure quality.  Queen Bee has matched her start up expenses and is going to do her online sales for now.  She plans to do farmers markets and sell them for school fundraising activities.

Today, you can help us get her started by “liking” her facebook page which will be her official website for now.  I promise you will love her and the yummy bath fizzers she has created!

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Enchanted-Bodies/650757804977413

We are going to sell the fizzers in lavender to start and two of them for $12.  If you come in for a facial in May, you will get this little treat as our gift to you.

Hopefully we will have them live on our shopping site by Ffriday this week!

Sorry to say goodbye refillable sunscreen brushes…

sunnybrush-300x285We are sad to say goodbye to this handy refillable brush.  All units like this are made in China and have inconsistent parts.  We are no longer able to find a supplier for this that is as good as this one was.  So, we have to say goodbye to this unit.

Not to worry, we will continue to sell our double-blocking Bee Sunny mineral powder sunscreen, but you will find it in different shaped shaker jars and will need to use a dark brush to apply.  We will plenty of fabulous options, just not this one that we fell in love with at the start of mineral powder sunscreen journey.

You can find all our sunscreen options here:

There are about 50 units left April 28th.  When those are gone, that is it.  If you are smart, you will stock up now while supplies last.

Look Like A Young Chick – Queen Bee Organic Spa Promotion!

chickadee-secretLook Like A Young Chick! This combination service takes roughly 50 minutes and combines the soothing LED light rejuvenation therapy with the power of HydraDerm to whisk off layers of dead skin, pigmentation and produces lasting results.

Our spa menu can be found at this link…

If you haven’t been to the hive this year, you have been missing out on several new services that we offer in Pagosa Springs. You don’t have to travel to the big city to get a taste of the latest technology in medical spa services and anti-aging skin care treatments.

At our Pagosa Springs day spa, we offer several earth friendly, skin renewing services:

Light Therapy Rejuvenating LED facial relax while your skin is deeply cleansed prior to a NASA inspired anti aging facial that address the sun damage that we have all incurred by living and vacationing in the high altitude outdoors. This treatment is well researched and improves the skin from deep within. Your skin with then be treated with a series of hydrating vitamin rich serums allowing you to leave our hive refreshed and rejuvenated. This service can be done alone or in combination with our other facial services. We recommend it with Hydraderm for best results. It stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers which continue to grow for two months following the service.  As you relax on the facial table surrounded with warm blankets and heated table, you listen to ambient music or choose a love meditation from Deepok Chopra.

HydraDerm MicroAbrasion This is an advanced technology similar in results to microderm abrasion, but with better controls. It is a new technology (2012) that allows more accurate targeting of treatment areas and flexible controls for each client’s skin challenges. Giving the most gentle buffing for post peel or extreme sensitive skin, moderate exfoliation to deep clean pores and surface debris, and deeper exfoliation of those people trying to address pigmentation and multiple layer resurfacing. Most clients see a dramatic improvement in dark spots with only one appointment.  You leave the spa looking radiant.  No down time or redness comes from either of these services.

Normally these two services cost $225, but for the entire month of April…  you will pay just $135!

Just call or text the spa and say I want to look like a young chick!  970-316-2899

Finally plant derived Ceramide treatment available from Queen Bee Organic Skin Care

ceramide-spritz-300x283Ceramides are in the skin care news often these days, with proof that this critical part of our barrier needs a little boost as we age.  If you think about your skin in parts, you can image the skin cells are being held together with a binding agent.  That binding agent contains three parts and a very important part in allowing flexibility and strength in our skin come from ceramides.  There is lots of new research showing that we can use topically applied ceramides to restore the health of our skin.

Recently, Dr Oz did a show with plastic surgeons where he mentioned phyto ceramides in pill form as a great new anti-aging product.  This got us researching again and we are happy to report that our new spritz is vegan and also paraben free.

Our phyto ceramide night time repair spritz will send you to heavenly dreams with this high top note scent including jasmine, ylang ylang and rose.  The ceramide complex will work all night restoring structive to the layers of the skin.  In our product, they are enhanced with allantoin which works which stimulates cell growth and repair while simultaneously depressing inflammation

Most ceramides come from animal fat such as sheep’s wool making it a product that Queen Bee avoided.  Our new partner in Germany makes this product possible by providing us a phyto-ceramide product which restores the protective barrier function of the skin.  It is ideal for aging skin, dry skin and sensitive skin.  This new ceramide complex offers enhanced delivery and exchange of skin lipids and is non-animal based cholesterol (vegetal-derived, semi-synthetic cholesterol).

We hope you will consider adding this to your night time routine.  Give it a couple weeks and see if you can see the same visual improvement in your skin that we can see with our tester group here in Pagosa Springs and Boulder.
