Honey Bee Bar is made with wildflower honey from Chapman Farms. We blend the honey with Olive, Castor, Coconut and Palm oils. We then spread on some Shea and Cocoa butters. The warm color comes from the honey and the smooth feeling is from the silk threads we add to our recipe. The top has been dusted with gold cosmetic mica we got just for this soap.
Our bees roam the woods and gardens and collect pollen that makes a deep amber color honey with many wonderful qualities. Historically, honey has been used by humans to treat a variety of ailments. It has also been used for centuries as a treatment for sore throats and coughs and, treating cuts and sore skin. But please, do not eat our Honey Bee Bar.
One other important quality of both Honey and Castor oil is that both these ingredients are known as “humectants“. Humectants are compounds that have two important qualities. First, they attract moisture from the air to the skin. Second, they help dissolve active ingredients, like beneficial oils or medicine, which improves their ability to penetrate the skin.
The sugar in Honey helps our soap lather and makes it great for the bath or shower. This soap is gentle enough that women can wash their face with it and it will not dry out their skin. However you use it, you will enjoy the light citrus fragrance and the scent of summer.
