Last Friday I opened an Etsy Store! This is something I have been working on for a while and i’m so excited to be able provide people with natural, organic and sustainable products that i’m passionate about.
The store is called ‘Happy Hive’ https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/HappyHiveStore and I sell moisturisers, skin healing balms, lip balms, washable make up remover pads, beeswax wraps, natural beeswax air fresheners, soaps and belly balms with more products to be added over the next month. Everything is handmade using natural organic and sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. They are chemical free and all packaging is recyclable.
My skin care products are made using mainly shea butter, beeswax, jojoba oil, almond and coconut oil. I use these ingredients because they all have amazing effects on the skin.
Beeswax – Is a humectant, which means it helps your skin retain its own moisture. Has natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties and also contains vitamin A which has been proven in multiple studies to reduce wrinkles and age spots while re-hydrating and reconstructing damaged skin cells.
Coconut/Almond oil – These oils are great natural moisturisers and deeply nourish skin. Almond oil is packed with vitamin E (essential for healthy skin). Coconut oil possess antimicrobial properties that can help protect the skin from bacteria.
Jojoba oil – Just like beeswax this ingredient is also Is a humectant (locks in moisture), a natural antibacterial and antioxidant, noncomedogenic – meaning its makeup is so similar to the oil (sebum) your body naturally produces that your skin can’t tell the difference.
This makes it less likely to build up on your skin and clog your pores.
