Speciality Soaps and Lotions
Handmade from Home
I started making my own beauty products to help with my Eczema on my hands. I went on the internet and found numerous recipes. That is when my hobby took off in my own kitchen. So many things I could make so many ingredients and scents I could choose from. I had to try them all. Of course one person could not use that much lotion and soap in a lifetime, so I thought I would share my creations with all of you.
My 14 year old daughter, Samantha, decided that my name should be "MiniBee" and drew a fabulous logo. Mini for the Mini Cooper that I drove and Bee for the beeswax that was in my very first product. She is now away to college and every time I look at my logo it makes me smile. :)
My hobby grew and when my son decided to moved out so I took over his room. (Sorry Christopher) It is now the MiniBee Beehive (aka laboratory).
I am also happy to report that my Eczema is gone and that is a big BONUS in my eyes.
"DON'T BE AFRAID TO FAIL! BE AFRAID NOT TO TRY"
MiniBee is a one woman show. From making the products, packaging, labeling, selling on the internet and selling at the markets. I am not quite sure where I find the time but somehow I do.
I do give thanks to an awesome husband who helps me with the setup at the markets and the friends, mother, and daughter who come and help me sell. :)
Oh so wonderful for your skin!!!
Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter have a rich, luxurious texture that penetrates deep to condition and moisturize every type of skin.
Each of my soap bars contain a generous amount of Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter that not only creates a great lather, but is ultra nourishing to your skin.
Shea butter is considered as one of the best anti-aging and moisturizing agents for the skin. It stimulates the production of collagen, the youthful scaffolding protein in the skin. The vitamins A and E found in this butter keep the skin supple, nourished, and radiant, and prevent premature wrinkles and facial lines. Shea butter penetrates the skin easily, without clogging the pores, and is effective for dry skin.
The antioxidant qualities of cocoa butter certainly take care of most signs of aging, but cocoa butter also provides a barrier for the skin that will protect it from outside agents as well. The antioxidants and beneficial organic molecules protect the skin from environmental, internal, and external forces that can cause irritation or damage to the skin.
The coconut is one of the true wonder plants in the world.
Moisturizer for Skin & Hair – The numerous minerals and nutrients in the coconut are great for your skin. The oil can also work to help remove dirt and dead cells from the skin.
**You can also use it as a shampoo bar.**
Acne treating – Coconut oil can also have benefits when it comes to acne treatment. The antimicrobial properties of the coconut can act to prevent or help reduce current acne breakouts. **Why use a product chock full of chemicals when it could be as simple as coconut oil.**
Skin Firming – Wrinkled skin can be caused from the elasticity in your skin breaking down as you age. The antioxidants from the coconut oil can help reduce skin aging.
MiniBee's light facial lotion is designed for normal to oily skin. It is perfect to use as a primer or as a daily moisturizer for those looking for a dose of moisture, without the heavy weight of a cream.
