Bee Beauty

Conscious conservation with cosmetics

Spring is just around the corner and, thankfully, the warmer weather is rolling in. Soon the flowers will be in bloom and bees will return for another season of pollination.

But the population is dwindling and bees are dying at an alarming rate. Between 2015 and 2016, beekeepers noticed a 44 percent drop in their colonies due to a number of environmental factors, including shriveled wing disease, due to pesticide exposure, according to the Organic Trade Association. While the USDA and Apiary Inspectors educate the world, let’s keep the bees in our daily beauty routine with some brands that protect those little honey makers.
