Why Certain Ingredients Will Never Be Found in Honeybee Gardens
Shelf life refers to the length of time any product is considered to be safe to use. While most people may associate this with food, it also applies to cosmetics. Very often manufacturers of eye shadow, foundation, or other cosmetics will try to give their products as long a shelf life as possible, and to do this they often add undesirable ingredients, such as parabens and phthalates. Honeybee Gardens does not use these potentially harmful substances in their cosmetics. Paraben-free and phthalate-free Honeybee Gardens products are made from natural ingredients like beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, mica, iron oxide, and manganese violet. The vibrancy and colors of Honeybee Gardens easily matches those of any other brand.
A Wife’s Concern for Her Husband Helped Start Honeybee Gardens
Melissa J. Buckley had a full-time job at an architectural firm and a husband with skin problems from shaving. For the first, she was getting tired of the corporate scene and as regards her husband, she was worried about his facial irritation. Putting her self-gathered knowledge of herbs to good use, Melissa started experiments to find an aftershave that would sooth her husband’s irritated skin. It took some trials and errors before Melissa got it right, but when she did – what a relief! From that time on Melissa tried to devote more and more time to her herbalism. Finally, totally fed up with her job, she simply walked away from it and started Honeybee Gardens, determined to provide natural cosmetics and personal care products that would be artificial ingredients-free.
