Your skin is a barrier that protects you from harmful bacteria and it's our largest organ. When you realize that you absorb products through your skin ten times more quickly than when they are ingested, it makes sense to examine the ingredients you find in everyday skin care products.
There are several studies concerning various chemicals we suggest avoiding. Basically, new products formulated within the last year are a good start. Most manufacturers are beginning to leave out some of the nasty chemicals also. The "think green" section of the site covers latest research and trends. Skin Deep is a huge database of product research that helps you learn what is in your everyday consumables.
For us at Queen Bee, we strive to create earth friendly, moisture rich products that help take care of high altitude skin which tends to be irritated and dry. So you will find all our bath and body products to be less stripping and more hydrating than competitors products.
Body Wash - (look for sodium lauryl sulphate free products)
Our body washes are all organic, thick lathering, and less abrasive than others. We add essential oils and scents to brighten your spirit. All organic essential oil blends include: Tangy Citrus, Spa Scent, and Lavender. Wild Willow, Cassis, Magnolia, and Thai Coconut use fragrance oils.
Bath Silky Milk
Our blend of hydrating yogurt, goat and cows milk, coconut, and mineralized sea salt are a perfect way to end a stressful day and hydrate your skin. It comes in several essential oil scents including Bulgarian Lavender, Tangy Citrus, and Spa Detox. They come in a variety of sizes and costs depending of the weight and volume of silky milk.
We make a couple muscle easing mineral salt soaks. Stress Less and Detoxifying are the two variations. They come in a twelve ounce jar and make lovely gifts. Stress Less was designed for nail techs giving pedicures and women either pregnant or suffering from swollen feet. Our Detoxifying Spa Soak was made with healing in mind. We scoured our shelves for ingredients that would heal and purify. The result is a great smelling bath time treat.
We make two types of shower scrubs. They are both super scrubbers and leave you extra hydrated. They are white sugar scrubs in base of raw shea butter with perky Citrus, and healing Detoxify Spa scent and our brown sugar enhanced with salicylic acid for extra luxurious skin softening in Wild Willow.
Blending five oils including jojoba, almond, sunflower, safflower and soybean oils give us a perfect skin friendly after show or massage oil base. It comes in Magnolia, Wild Willow, Thai Coconut, Exotic Spice, Bulgarian Lavender, Spa, Cassis and Citrus scents.

Cream -- Our super rich creams include Butta! Gardener's Hand Cream, Crack Cream for healing hands and heels, God Save the Cream! Spa Scent. They are made for extreme dry skin and hard working hands.
You're Nuts! Cuticle Oil -- Our all organic nut oil blend is steeped with clove which produces eugenol to numb, provide anti-bacterial healing, and reduce swelling. The mostly macadamia nut oil is almost watery in texture allowing the oils to penetrate the folds of the cuticle and crevices to heal and hydrate.
