Yes it is possible, and we found it
Sometimes we will share with you our beauty botanical ingredients sourcing adventures.
Here just a random coconut hand picking,
Today we bring you with us in such a sustainable and preserved place, you wouldn’t even believe it. We will write about it again later with some beautiful facts and images regarding Vanuatu, but today let’s talk about sustainability.
A zero plastic country? Noooot possible? Think twice. Leafs are making amazing baskets, wraps , plates and dishes to cook some amazing crockpot kind of dishes directly into the embers.
An independent little country in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean 🌊 was already living in an extremely sustainable way. Never used any pesticide nor GMO.
As you see: no need of any plastic bag for grocery shopping.
And now, they pushed it further: They voted the no plastic diapers law.
Just look at this farmer market, where we were buying our vegetables, amazing exotic fruits and seeds. Yurky but so healthy noni fermented drinks.
So much good memories popping up in our minds. Well, the water snakes were part of the deal …as well as giant coconut crabs ( I mean giant, as big as my 2 bulldogs all together)
We are so impressed by the wisdom of these people. We are so glad we had the opportunity to share their life for a while. And we are so proud to sell their unique coconut oil 🥥 as our premium oil. When using our oil, you have a direct flight to tropical heaven. 🌴
This was just a blink of our sourcing experiences.
We hope you enjoyed the trip.

The Spoiled Bee Team
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
