Meeting, Helping people while Sourcing Natural Cosmetic Ingredients for DIY
Meeting with people around the World, discovering other cultures and lifestyles, traveling the planet for sourcing the purest ingredients for our easy to make DIY cosmetics was fantastic.
I invite you to travel with me….and discover some shots…and videos…of nice places, beautiful people, incredible botanical ingredients used around the World by women…for their beauty….and wellbeing!!!
During this amazing traveling/sourcing adventure, I spent 4 months in Vanuatu Island for sourcing some essential oils and carier oils as ingredients for our online store coming soon. During that time I was living on a small charming house in front of the lagoon. Oh, by the way, some windows…had no windows…but rather wood shutters…which was perfectly great for tropical weather, except for the fact that I am suffering from an “invisible handicap”, a trigeminal neuropathy, therefore my face is extremely sensitive to wind…blowing in my house…
I also had to cross a shanty town to reach my house, and was amazed how kind people were, always waving and smiling. I witnessed what we would call poverty…still…the place was magical…and it was so relaxing to hear the chants from across the lagoon, almost like gospel songs, some evening…wow, what an experience.
I came back with stunning botanical ingredients to launch our boutique online, where you will find all your cosmetic ingredients and equipment to realize all your homemade skincare… in one place…
The Spoiled Bee was created in 2017 by a mother/daughter combo who are passionate about home made natural cosmetics. After numerous travels to all corners of the globe, they have jointly accumulated a wealth of knowledge and first hand experiences in a wide variety of natural cosmetic and beauty ingredients. From the well-kept beauty secrets of the Pacific Islands to ancient French beauty remedies.
We believe nature and beauty is not one size fits all and that is why The Spoiled Bee brings you only the very best of these natural ingredients to create your own custom made cosmetic at home. Ranging from skincare, haircare and mineral makeup ingredients to reusable accessories, we believe nature has provided us with everything we need to be naturally gorgeous! Free of any harsh chemicals, 100% cruelty free, never tested on animals, environmentally friendly and ethical, what more could you ask for?
Through our blog and social medias pages, we will also aim to bring you the very best recipes and advice to help you and inspire you every step of the way.
A little about our name, the Spoiled Bee comes from the desire of protecting our beautiful bees and of course spoiling them! Did you know scientists agree that if all bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, humanity only has about 4 years left to live due to the lack of pollination? That is why we have decided to offer among many other products and ingredients, a range of bee products which also happen to have amazing properties for your body, skin and hair.
Now we know you are probably wondering how encouraging the commerce of bee products will help the bee population? Well, over the last few decades, bee products have unfortunately and often rightly been associated with harsh harvesting and mass production to keep up with the growing demand. We will never be doing that in a million (or trillion) years! We make sure that all our bee products are harvested in a sustainable and respectful manner by carefully selecting trusted bee keepers.
All the hives are located in flowery fields and forests, away from all modern pollution and chemicals and the beekeepers always make sure our bees have more than enough honey left for winter. The more hives, the more the bee population of the world will thrive once again so please help us help them!
Lots of Love
The Spoiled Bee Team Xx
