In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Beecology Moisturizing Lavender with Bergamot Body Wash

Date posted: February 26, 2013 | By:

As you guys know, I looooooove small businesses! The businesses that give it their all and put more love into their products than many people possess in their little fingers are what really inspire me.

Beecology is a new discovery of mine – a line developed by husband and wife beekeepers, Amy and David. They wanted to find a resourceful, innovative way to repurpose their excess beeswax and support their beekeeping family and, thus, Beecology was born.

Beecology Moisturizing Lavender with Bergamot Body Wash ($8.99)

If you have sensitive skin, this is a skin winner! It’s a super gentle cleanser that’s sulfate-and-preservative-free and is made with the aforementioned beeswax as well as virgin hemp oil and aloe. It does the job of cleansing without stripping the skin of vital, nourishing oils.

And while I was expecting an overwhelming scent of honey, lavender and bergamot, I was pleasantly surprised by the delicate scent that it imparted. It was less like tubtime and more like teatime!

I urge you to try this small beauty biz out for yourself. With a broad selection of eco-friendly, natural bath and body products including beeswax lip balm, shampoo, conditioner and body wash, they also manufacture two paraben free honey hand and body creams and moisturizing bar soaps. They can be found in about 150 stores in the US, Canada and online sites including,

Another reason I’m a big champ of this bee-based beauty brand? They follow the Paul Newman philanthropic principle that I adore so much. They donate 10% of their net profits to their consumer’s charity of choice. Each supported product contains a charity code. After the purchase, consumers can visit Beecology’s charity web site, to enter the code and designate to which charity their percentage should be donated.

As sweet as honey, this company is!

  1. Hmm I am a lavender beauty product junkie… I may have to try this Beecology line sometime. I love that you feature small businesses on your blog! I go to the U of Maine and we have this old historic 1800′s farmhouse that they hold artisan markets every once in a while over the holidays found it so fun to Christmas shop there.. I came home with hand knitted knee high socks (to-die-for-cozy) and a wonderful small bread business. They made a delicious jalapeno cheddar bread and I love getting my bread from them. So fun and great to support the locals! :)

  2. Hi Kate! I love me some lavender too! So nice to go to sleep after a lavender bath! And I’m so happy that you love that I feature small businesses! I plan to start doing it, routinely, on Saturdays. But I’ve always been a champ of small biz! Some of my favorite products are from hardworking, innovative, creative small business owners! And, honey, that jalapeño cheddar bread sounds diiiiiviiiine!!! And knee high socks are just the cutest, aren’t they? xoxo, BF
