How Gilchrist & Soames Are Saving Bees

2017-april-blog-beekindThis month, we’re super excited to be featuring Gilchrist & Soames’ BeeKind Shower Gel & Body Lotion! Combining organic red clover, lemongrass, calendula and chamomile, these body care products are not only incredible for your skin but are eco-friendly too. This, coupled with its fragrance of limes, verbena, and White jasmine make these products the best bath companions you could ask for!

BeeKind is a conscientious lifestyle bath & body brand focused on naturally derived, good for you products that help support the honey bee and sustainable pollination research. The nature-inspired BeeKind Collection is rich in high-performance organic extracts that nourish the hair and pamper the body, making it as soothing as it is stylish.

In addition, the products tubes are made of highly recyclable HDPE plastic which is regularly downcycled to manufacture toys, rope, recycling bins and countless other everyday products. We source the lowest possible resin weight, a key to limiting environmental burden, while tubes allow ease in dispensing for less residual product waste than a bottle.

For over 100 million years, the honey bee has pollinated world crops. A hive of 50,000 honeybees pollinates half a million plants in one day. Colony Collapse Disorder has decimated the honey bee population by almost 50% in recent years and scientists have yet to confirm the cause. Without bees to pollinate fruit, nut and agricultural crops, the United States could lose $15 billion in resources annually. A portion of profits from BeeKind products are used to help support the Harry H. Laidlaw Jr. Honey Bee Research Facility at the University of California, Davis, which is the largest and most comprehensive state-supported apiculture facility in North America. The facility provides cutting-edge research focusing on basic bee biology and genetics and addresses international concerns about bee health. The Honey Bee Research Facility’s expertise includes honey bee breeding, genetics and native bee biology. They are uniquely qualified to investigate declining populations of honey bees, native bees and other insect pollinators and to provide solutions.
