Beauty and the Bees embraces the all-natural, cruelty free beauty movement. It’s a trend we’ve helped create and, in fact, one we’ve been leading for almost three decades, producing cruelty and chemical-free products sourced from Tasmania since our brand was launched in 1993.
Most of our ingredients—like Herbs, Leatherwood Honey and Goat’s Milk—are not only edible, but delicious.
Helping Save Our Landfills
Beyond our commitment to natural, Tassie ingredients, we’ve led and consistently maintained a commitment to ethical, minimal and 99% plastic-free packaging.
In fact, we’ve calculated that our commitment to the environment has saved over 3 million plastic bottles and other packaging from being chucked into Australia’s landfills!
Finally, our commitment to the environment includes the local Tasmanian economy, hiring locally and supporting local farmers, dairies and other small raw material supply businesses.
Packing of Orders
PLEASE NOTE: we have been packing mail orders for 25 years : yes we have tried every combination of packing materials known to man ( no: shredded paper does not work: it settles instantly when packed and offers no protection to glass at all resulting in frequent breakages) so we know what works to get items to you safely.
- Where bags are required ( for free samples of soaps, etc in mail orders) we use biodegradeable cellophane bags, and only kraft recycled paper bags instore.
- We use only recycled/earth friendly shipping materials to pack mail orders, Australia Post satchels are recyclable.
- Packing boxes are all recycled Kraft card.
- The spoons/spatulas provided with our moisture creams are not plastic but also biodegradeable, made of cornstarch.
- And yes, all other packing materials are biodegradable including cornstarch spoons ( included with creams) and packing beads/bubbles are recycled ( again from other small businesses so they get a second use) and made only from edible cornstarch or wheat: no polystyrene! Feed them to your chickens if you have them!
