While We're On The Subject Of Bees


I love Burt's Bees Lip Gloss/Moisturizer - Raspberry is my personal fav.

Ingredients: vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, beeswax, lanolin, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, flavor, tocopheryl acetate, tocopherol, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) extract.
Information To Know
Burt’s Bees, the Natural Products Association and leading personal
care companies have established a Natural Standard and Seal.
The standard requires that all products that carry the seal
contain 95% natural ingredients with minimal processing and
no potential human health risk.
Shop Naturally – 6 Ingredients to Avoid
Though the FDA has approved these ingredients for use in personal care products,
they are not allowed in the NPA Natural Standard. Besides, they’re synthetic
chemicals, which should never be in a product called ‘natural’. Carry this list below with
you when you shop; if you see any of these synthetic ingredients on a personal care
product label, think twice before putting it in your cart.
SodiumLauryl Sulfate - Chemical cleanser
DMDMHydantoin - Chemical preservative
Petrolatum- Non-renewable by-product of crude oil
Parabens - Synthetic preservatives
Oxybenzone - Synthetic sunscreen
Dimethicone - Silicone derivatives
P.S. There are no more free seeds as the ad below suggests -- With over 50,000 seed packets requested, there was MILLIONS of flowers planted across the country. That's a lot of healthy places for bees to live and thrive.
