Caley-Beth Celebrates World Bee Day!

For World Bee Day, Caley-Beth is celebrating the beauty of honey, beeswax, and more. Learn all about the powers of these natural ingredients, see why bees are so important, and discover how our sustainable skincare plays a part!

What Is World Bee Day?

World Bee Day is an initiative that aims to educate the world about the importance of bees. Started in 2017, this annual celebration highlights the crucial role these buzzing beauties play in agriculture, biodiversity, and food stability. It also acts as a reminder that these pollinators are under threat and calls for widespread action.

Bees in Beauty

Bees are essential for food production and pollination, but did you know they are also a huge help for our skin? Bee derived ingredients like honey and beeswax offer a wide range of benefits when it comes to beauty. Just check out what they can do!:

Caley-Beth Bee Powered Skincare

You will find honey and beeswax in many of our products, as we believe in the benefits these natural ingredients provide. For example, the Honey Facial Cleanser, Lip Balm, Hand & Body Lotion, and After Shave Balm all include these bee powered materials.

Caley-Beth doesn't just use honey and beeswax though. To ensure we support the apiaries that use the best practices to support the bees, we buy local! Presently we buy all our 100% Ontario honey and Canadian all natural beeswax from a local Toronto social enterprise dedicated to sustainable management of urban hives.

These locally sourced bee products are then lovingly added into our formulations as we hand craft our luxurious skincare. Discover the indulgent and soothing treatments below:
