Jill Saunders founded Beauty and the Bees 25 years ago in Tasmania. The company continues to make natural and ethical products in Glenorchy.
Consumers choose our products for many reasons but the main selection criteria is that when you buy from us you are choosing something that is ethical, 100% natural and no polluting plastic packaging.
Unlike liquid shampoo companies that make commercial products in plastic bottles that clog up the landfill, we only use cardboard: we are proud to have saved more that one million plastic packages from landfill in 25 years!
It’s also true that every one of our bars has specific active ingredients in them. For instance, some have egg, which is more for dry hair because it’s rich in ingredients that really help get rid of the dryness.
Goat’s milk is completely plain and unscented for maximum mildness. The Beer gives you bounce and gloss.
We’ve been experimenting with all of this for over 25 years and its effectiveness is confirmed by feedback from many thousands of happy users.
In that sense, it can be difficult to prescribe for very different individuals so it’s best to try them all so that you can determine what’s your favourite and which one works best for you.
That’s why we have a sample pack to help people make that choice.
And don’t give them just one try. It can take considerable time to graduate to a shampoo bar. Some people get results almost immediately but you need to spend some time experimenting.
All of them use natural, healthy ingredients: premium quality coconut oil, beeswax, honey. We also use food ingredients that really give a quality result.
They are premium quality foods that you’d find in your kitchen.
Always read the labels. Many commercial shampoo bars that claim to be natural simply aren’t. They are full of harsh stripping agents.
Over the last 25 years we have refined the process over and over using quality, healthy ingredients and have created the very best quality shampoo bars on the market.
When you look on our website you’ll see that the testimonials speak for themselves – many years of experience and many thousands of happy and satisfied customers. That makes me feel really good.
And we haven’t stopped experimenting! We’re constantly refining and there are always new products in the pipeline. For instance, Bamboo Charcoal came along a little while ago and has turned out to be an absolutely magic ingredient for us. So we’re always learning…and love doing it.
25 years of experience makes a big difference.
It’s important to know, as well, that even though we use the very best premium quality ingredients our products remain cost effective and competitive. In fact, you end up getting great value for money because the products last for such a long time: you wash your hair less frequently and your hair grows faster and healthier!
